If I had a photo I'd show you, but I didn't take one. My kitchen sink has been very slow to drain for months. I thought I had fixed the problem but nope, last week everything would drain out of one sink and come back up the other and took abot 20 minutes to empty out.
So Saturday morning, I took a good look under the sink, and realised that I had never looked up at the underside of the sink and the traps. Can you guess what I saw next? One of the traps was held together with duct tape and I didn't do it, which means that the tape is over 7 years old!
Out comes the hand saw, and I cut the plastic drain pipes away, figuring that I'll get the pieces and put a new set of pipes in. My dad brought me over a snake to clean the line and I snaked the line. I decided to go down into the basement and check the line. There was a leak... Yes, the 40 year old pipe has sprung a leak at an old weld site. The plumber is coming at some point to replace the line and the under the sink pipes...
Thanks goodness DD is away, as it's a major pain to wash dishes in a pan and flush the remains away...
Oh and if you need something else to laugh at this morning, I was half way to work yesterday when I realised that my office keys were either on the kitchen table or in my bedroom. I had to go home tomorrow to get the keys, as I'm locked out of my main computer until then.
What's up for the weekend?
