Re: Gas water heater

Is there a pattern to when it goes out? I'd be curious if you have enough gas volume in your system.

You are correct that the tub and shower on opposite sides of the room with the toilet in the middle. Expanding the shower however will not require a complete re-layout of the room.

Re: injuries

Does removing the guards from machines run in your family or is there some other explanation for this?
