day forty.seven

hi 097

after a few days of a slowly draining tub i decided to put on the role of plumber and attack the clog. i am sick and tired of the plumbing in this house. i've had my arms elbow deep down a pipe too many times to remedy over flowing toilets or drain pipes that stop flowing altogether. it seems to happen at least twice a year since moving into this old home eight years ago. my husband is never home when it needs to be fixed so i tackle it alone, now with the assistance of a three year old. the nerve-wracking part is putting the elbow pipe back on and praying it doesn't leak. there was much success the first attempt and it was dry as a bone. i refrained from taking a photo of the rat sized clump of hair that was the culprit.

  2. Hi Kari, oh boy... plumbing issues are the worst. I admire you for tackling that job! I live in a 100 year old house and we 1-2 times a year have our pipes rodded out. The culprit is tree roots. Nothing we can do about it unless we take the down the 70-80 trees which I hate to do.

    I saw your blog on Welcome Wed.
