Andy has been working on plumbing the past couple of weeks. Here’s a picture of what it looks like in the crawl space now:


He didn’t take a before picture, but this is roughly what it was like:


He gave me a detailed explanation tonight of all the pipes and valves and how he will use them to (1) figure out why we no longer have running water in the house, and (2) try to flush any blockage out. (He also installed a filter so the plumbing in the house won’t get plugged up in the future, but it doesn’t show in the picture.) We’ll report how it goes in a few days.

Wish him luck!

    I hope you get the problems sorted out. That’s a remarkable bit of pipework. A touch of Heath Robinson even!

    I’ll trade crawl spaces with Andy anytime he’s ready. I have spent quality time under my house also from time to time but the floor is solely “dirt & rock”. Not a fun place to spend an hour or two! 🙂

    I wish both of you all the very best. I don’t have to get down into crawl places here. Plumbers who make house calls are still reasonably priced and give excellent advise and service.

    Jean, when we first moved in here, it was a brand new settlement with brand new homes and I was indeed considered to be nuts to have chosen this place which then was indeed in the boondocks! It no longer is though and today in Pune it is the second highest priced market!
