Back on last Friday (6-20-14) I posted a blog about discovering a leak under my house in the middle of the night. The plumbers came the next day and did a temporary emergency fix until they had time to come and do the job correctly. So, yesterday was the day they returned and a crew of four spent the entire day at my place.
I have a lot of places in my home that uses water. There are three full bathrooms with tubs and showers and sinks, there is a large gas hot water heater, there is laundry, there is a kitchen sink and a dishwasher, and an external spigot so I have a place outside to get water and attach a hose. With all these different outlets, there is a lot of fittings, like ells, tees, etc. The crew replaced all the fittings with new, better designed ones. Then they replaced all the insulation and covering.
They said that some of the pipes had been chewed on, so I set a trap and caught a coon. I hope everything will be alright now and that the fix lasts awhile. I will be on the alert for animal signs and if there are any, the trap will be set again. BTW, the first thing I caught in the live trap was a cat. When I opened the door and let it out, I do believe it broke the sound barrier getting away and into a nearby thicket. Now I have lots of water and my pipes are full but my wallet is a lot lighter, for sure. You all have a great day today, you hear?
