I can be a real procrastinator. As a matter-of-fact I'm procrastinating on many chores right now but today I decided I should tackle one that has been staring me in the face for many months. It was my hot water heater.
The copper lines leading into and out of the water heater had pin holes in them so I taped them with some stuff that usually stops the leaks for a time. Unfortunately the one where the hot water came out didn't cooperate and the tape kept bursting so I'd add more towels around the base so it would catch the drips. I know, that's pitiful, but what's a woman to do who's too lazy or perhaps too incompetent to figure out a solution? She waits a few months till the leak gets worse.
I should mention I called 2 plumbers and the one I use is no longer working for this company and the other one I called couln't come for almost a week so I figured I needed to get on the ball myself. So, to make a long story a little shorter I fixed the cold water line but the other one I got wasn't long enough so I need to go back to Lowes to get a longer one. Oh well, at least I know it's an easy fix.
I love the shiny look of newly replaced plumbing. Actually I like seeing no drips coming from the repaired line. Plumbing can be one of my least favorite jobs.
