Charlie was all set to take a shower Saturday night but let me hop in for mine first. I thought the tub was stopped up and sure enough it would not drain.
Nothing would unstop this finicky drain so I suggested Charlie take his shower in the Cottage.
Then we remembered we had turned off the water ages ago because of a leak under the sink.
Happily I had bought the fixings the previous day at Home Depot. (Hard to believe I would have done that all by myself.)
Charlie taped up the connection where the copper stopped and the CPVC started with teflon tape to deter further leaking.
Charlie smeared yellow goop on the CPVC (the kind for drinking water) to fit the elbow and the valve.
The goop drips but Charlie caught it with the valve connection.
Try to keep everything tidy.
He snugged up the compression nut on the valve and opened the water lines to the Cottage which had been turned off all summer.
We have running water in the cottage. Oh, yeah!
And Charlie took his shower with hot and cold running water. (He thought he’d have to bathe under the outdoor hose. Brrrrr.)
Do your plumbing problems always creep up on Saturday night like ours?
