I dunno oifthey stilldo (live in Germany now) “Hello, bacterias, little firends…” On that note – I once lived in a house and the bathrooms grew mushrooms in the corner about 5 cm (2 inches),- I kid you not… Another thing – some bathrooms don’t have a proper shower unit, So you buy a rubbery hose with the end looking like a Y and you puish them over the cold and the hot tap and at the long end there is small kind of shower head thingy … 🙂 David Innes November 27, 2020 Reply Hooray! A Canadian who understands why the switches in the bathroom are outside or on a pull string. Water and electricity make a poor mix. The tap thing? The plumbing in ‘the old days’ was lead. Obviously mostly this has been replaced by plastic, but some people have lead from the main coming into the house. Very toxic. When hot water came in it was – for many years heated by an electrical immersion heater in a big copper tank. Again copper is quite toxic and can disrupt the cardiac system… Actually, I’m never drinking water again! Leave a Reply Cancel reply This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.
