The repair of my bathroom still has not been completed, though there is a floor now. They don’t expect me to use it, since they haven’t put the toilet or sink back inside. In fact, they told me to use the bathroom next door – even though that flat (being unoccupied) has no electricity (no light) and has no apparatus for taking a shower. Unless I want to somehow get myself under one of the fixtures and have a shower under something resembling a broken fire hydrant.
The problem under my bathroom was not a pipe – the cement was such poor quality that a sinkhole was created under the tile. That is to say – there wasn’t any floor under the corner of the bathroom below the tile.
