Speculatively speaking. One would assume that if your landlord provided a bathtub with a showerhead, then it would have to be a showerhead in working order. You should call the ‘Department of Buildings’, they can probably assist you. If you declare that you privately worked on the showerhead then the landlord may be able to claim that it is damaged due to your unauthorized work. The landlord may also claim that damages were caused by your negligence by allowing water to spill onto the floor while showering by not having the curtain closed and that the landlord assumes no responsibility. Pipe or part corrosion is something that he can not blame you for. Just a few thoughts. Get more advice. JULY 24, 1998.
