    I don’t really know what to say but I think I would want to get it done right so as to not have bigger problems in the future.

    You’ll definitely need to have it looked at by someone else at the very least.  You don’t want new (and old) leaks that are going to cause mold and rot to the subfloors.  In the long run, it’s going to cost you a lot more if you ignore it now.

    I think if there is a chance something could be wrong (the pipes leaking in the walls!) then it is worth it to re-do, I feel like if a pipe bursts or something and you get water damage and mold and everything else, your least worry will be the uneven tiles and it may be seriously expensive to get it fixed.

    @abbie017:  2nd this.

    And luckily, interest rates are pretty low right now so if it were me I’d end up getting it done and over with.

    I hate the thought of debt, but this is your plumbing we are talking about. If it isn’t done right it could lead to a lot of problems. So I say take out the loan and have it fixed.

    For example, we bought our house from the previous owner who lived there for about 5 years, it was brand new when he moved in. Not sure what happeend, but the master bathroom toilet was not properly installed and water had been leaking for 5 years and no one knew. Our home passed inspection with flying colors. With our luck, 2 months after we moved in the water had soaked the floors (downstairs ceiling) and we had a full blown leak and hole downstairs. We asked the repair guy if this was missed by our inspector guy and he said there was no way it would turn up in an inspection. The leak was so minor and happened only when we flushed. Sooo moral of the story. Get your toilet properly installed!

    Good luck. My grandmother was in that position because she wanted to help a neighbor find work… wasn’t pretty. Get it fixed as soon as you can, water in the wrong place can cause serious issues.

    I’d take out the loan.  You don’t want something he’s screwed up to turn into a bigger problem that will cost you even more in the long run.

    Get it done right and then you can be done with it.
