I knew you would not be able to go to sleep tonight until you heard the exciting conclusion of how the situation with the repair of the sliding shower door rollers was resolved.

After I spoke with you (on this forum) I spoke to the tenant (on the phone) and told him it would be no problem to replace the rollers and described what I would be doing.

Apparently, I made it sound so easy that when I met the tenant at his apartment, he had already bought the rollers and installed them himself.

Furthermore, when I checked one last place where I might have stored sliding shower doors that I removed to replace with shower curtains in vacant units, I found that I still had the doors from one apartment that I thought had been thrown away.

So, I am now prepared with the whole door if needed in the future, and the rollers have been repaired although not by me.

Shower rod and curtains going forward (unless A class)

You should examine how the rollers are installed on the stored set of shower doors. Good you had an extra set.

A friend purchased a 4 unit apartment building in the Fairfax area. She was remodeling the master unit that had 3 wall heaters. I begged her to save those heaters for parts or replacement for the other three units. Those were all 2 bedroom with 3 wall heaters.

But now she threw them out. Her owners unit had now central heat and air. One by one over the years her 9 other wall heater in the other 3 units has issues. Parts from a repair heating company were sky high since the parts were no longer manufactured. She spent around $2,500 to $4,000 to replace each or the 9 failed heaters. That's around $30,000 mistake getting rid of old heaters.

So didn't have the balls to ask me for spare parts since I told her to save the old ones. Of course I have all of the spare parts in the world for rental. New, used and rebuilt.

Some day a tenant will request shower doors and you will have an extra old one to use, or not.

Reminds me of my old neighbors in West Hills. And old couple living on Social Security. Their original tube type shower door with safety glass with wires between the two sheets of glass had deteriorated. The bottom tube and one corner were eaten up. So I pulled the tub frame I've saved from one of my rentals when I replaced a cracked shower door and fixed it for them, no charge. For 10 years they treated me right, in gratitude.
