Yay, Andy!

Andy checked the water today — it got to the house just fine, so he flushed out the pipes and we have indoor plumbing again.

He did have a problem with the filter (to prevent future clogging). The joint circled in black in the following picture was leaking, and when Andy tried to tighten it the pipe cracked.

So he has to order a few more parts and do a bit more plumbing. That’s a nuisance, but on the whole the day was a great success. Yay, Andy!

    Wow — that’s quite an engineered, mostly PVC, water supply system with way more ball valves than our system under our house. We have three — one where the water line comes up out of the ground under the house and two to isolate lines going outside. We don’t have to worry about filtration since we’ve been on the county water system for around 25 years. Before that we had to have a portable exchange tank for softening the water.

    I like the amount of space he has to work with. I replaced all plumbing under the house as it was cast iron and starting to leak. It was all done in the prone position, with not even enough room to kneel to work.

      That must have been hard. Our house may be small — about 677 square feet inside — but it does have a decent crawl space.

      LOL… Happens to the best of us like the day I spent fifteen minutes looking for a shirt I was already wearing! :D

      I’m glad it’s working now. That’s the only thing that counts. I almost bought a new camera once because my old one suddenly stopped working. It seemed strange, but it didn’t occur to me until the next day that it “broke” after I had recharged the battery. Sure enough, when I took the battery out and put it in the right way the camera worked just fine. Modern life is complicated and it behooves up to be gentle with ourselves.

    Andy, seems to enjoy problems/solutions and making things work better for whatever reason…

      It was a lot of work, but on the whole he seemed to enjoy it. There was a good reason to do it — the indoor plumbing stopped working a few months ago. Having no running water in the house made it a lot less liveable.
