Just showered in our old shower with new pipes, new showerhead, new faucet handles, new water pressure. It's crazy awesome that you can turn on the water, then if you want a smidge more hot, you just turn the handle a smidge more and you get some more hot and even more pressure! In the old days it was bascially one setting for hot and if you wanted more hot, you turned the cold down. Water pressure remained the same at barely more than a strong trickle.
I'm so happy. Nevermind that there is much plaster patching to do...WE HAVE NEW PIPES! WE HAVE WATER PRESSURE LIKE NORMAL PEOPLE!
