I wonder why there is one slip nut though... WHY put one nut in the first place when you cannot even remove the trap? He's such a confusing person, that landlord...! And I don't like to use the word LANDLORD for him... it might be his land... but he's nowhere near a "lord" !!! That's why I used "owner" at first... we call it "propriétaire" in Québec, which is a direct translation of "owner".
OH... it reminds me: I DON'T HAVE SHUT DOWN VALVES on any sinks in the apartment! The only place I have a shut down valve, is on the toilet. The kitchen sink and the bathroom sink don't have valves on any of the cold or hot inlets... so if something fails, or if I simply want to clean/replace the cartridges... I have to cut the main water supply for the apartment... and the valves that cut the main water supply are near the hot water tank, in my bedroom... and the valve leaks when I turn it off... so I don't want to mess with the valve! Bedroom floor's covered in carpet!
Again... really NOT a land"lord"... he's more of a landevil!!
