Re: New bathroom

said by fartness:

I posted that I shower with the door fully open (I live alone) and I still have these symptoms.

Clarification, please. While it is good that the bathroom door is open when you shower to allow in replacement air, is the fan ON while you shower? Trying to exhaust a room full of condensation is harder than keeping up with it from the beginning.

Here's my shower steps:
1. In bedroom, decide I want to take shower in the next 2 minutes.
2. Walk to bathroom, turn on fan for 20 minutes, maybe even brush my teeth or go pee
3. Get nekkid
4. Throw clothes in room across the hall
5. Turn water on, commence showering.

Not sure the procedure run down was really required, but nevertheless the answer is in there.

So at this point, we know
* you have what appears to be air movement at the entrance to the fan because you did the tissue square test.
* the room has the door open during the creation of the moist air from the shower so should be able to replace the air that it exhausts through the fan

We don't know for sure that the moist air is truly going outside through the roof vent, but that seems to be a different issue than moving enough air to counteract moist air build up.

To be determined:
* Is there something restricting maximum air flow between the fan and the roof vent exit. For example, kink in tubing or something restricting a damper at the fan exit or roof exit, or too long of a run to the vent exit
* Is the fan truly powerful enough
* Is the fan placed well within the bathroom ceiling relative to the shower

Other than that, I'm out of ideas. Hope someone else has some suggestions for you.

If it helps, I live in a colonial. Bathroom is on the second floor. The tubing goes from the top of the bathroom ceiling/bottom of the attic floor, on up to the roof. I can stand in my attic, but not everywhere because of where the ceiling comes down, such as what an upside down V looks like.
