Toddler Broke My Tub Faucet

This post contains affiliate links.

Seriously when my kids take baths or showers together they hang over anything in the tub that they can get their hands on. The safety bars to help you stand become jungle jims and my two year old became obsessed with turning the faucet on and off over and over to make the shower run and stop.

This caused the hangle and rusty bolt holding it in place to snap and come apart, I jury rigged it for now but will probably have to spend some time looking for discount faucets to replace the broken handle.

I am not a plumber, and have rudimentary handy man skills so when I see this faucet it appears to require some plumbing work and caulking to get it replaced, I may give it a go, or I may take the easy route and hire somebody. For now lets see if my jury rig fix holds.
