Plumbing & Drain Service

Hey Neighbors!

I really like this home, but we have had more than our share of plumbing problems.  We have seriously considered calling Roto-Rooter Plumbing & Drain Service.  First we had problems with the kitchen sink, so we replaced it. Everything, the sink, the faucets and all the pipes.  Not long afterwards one of the new pipes started leaking.  We had a friend visiting who went in and replaced everything under the sink again, including the sprayer that had stopped working.

Next it was the girls bathroom tub.  You would get in for a shower and by the time you were done, you were standing in about eight inches of water.  Then of course it took a long time for it to finally drain.  We ran a snake down the drain, tried all kinds of drain cleaners, and used a plunger, all to no avail.  Finally, the same person who fixed the sink found the clog down in the pipes in the basement.  It was a buildup of hair and other junk.

The boys bathroom sink was next.  It started draining slowly.  Now, to be honest on this one the boys used a liquid drain cleaner a few times and it cleared right up.

The last problem, the one we are working on right now, is the boy's toilet.  It seems to be clogged down in the line somewhere.  It backs up to the rim of the toilet, never overflows, and then drains within a couple of minutes.  The boys have tried a couple of home remedies, but I think we might need to call an expert on this one.  I am thinking that something is stuck in the line somewhere.  Hopefully we do not need to dig anything up, especially since it is winter and the ground is probably quite frozen.  Any ideas here?

Oh, and I forgot to mention the shower head in the girl's bathroom blew right off.  At least that was an easy fix.  We just sawed off a piece of pipe, added a new connector and then replaced the shower head.  Quick and easy.  It was really strange showering in there for a day or two.  It was like standing under a hose!

At least we have replaced almost all the plumbing now.  We did the girl's bathroom sink pipes when we put in a new sink.  Perhaps after we get this repaired we won't have any more problems for awhile.

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
