Have You Ever Called Rotorooter

Hi Neighbors!

How are you doing today?I am tired, but it is a good tired.  We spent the day at Disney!  My husband and I came back early to have dinner together!  He went and picked up special dinners and we are having a quiet dinner for two.  Now something that I would really hate to do right now is have to call a local Rotorooter.  Since we are in a hotel I would not have to do that!  I will be posting more about our day later.

What is the worst plumbing experience you have ever had?  We actually have had several in the home we now are living in, but I think we have those all fixed, except for a small leak in the basement that we are hoping is coming from water running off the edge of the tub.  I really don't need anymore major plumbing problems.  I believe we have had enough!

I do want to share about a leak we had previously.  We had a leak in the pipes under our bathroom and had to tear up the floor.  We had a gaping hole right beside our bathtub and in front of the toilet.  We actually had to lift our daughters over the hole to the toilet.  They had to perch there like little birds and then get help to get down, as they did not want to fall in the hole.  At the time it was not very amusing, but of course it is quite a bit easier to laugh after it is over.

Fortunately we only had to live like this 2 days.  When he was not working on the repair we were able to lay a piece of plywood down and walk across.  Not only was I happy to have the repair done, but the girls were happy too!  It is funny the odd stories you remember when looking back.  The girls still remember this too!

So what was your most memorable plumbing nightmare? Something stuck in a pipe that shouldn't have been there?  Or maybe you had some pipes burst at the most unexpected time.  Of course, who goes around expecting their pipes to burst?  take a minute to share what happened to you.

See you At the Fence soon, with an update to our trip!

I don't need to call a roto rooter man, got my hubby to do it. He's a residential contractor that keeps our home in good repair.

We purchased a home and the basement was all nice and dry and painted but whenever we went to view it before purchasing, they had no lights in there to really see things good. We bought the home, and our first large rainfall left toys floating, new rugs that we paid $500 for ruined, furnishing soaked, etc. What happened was he freshly painted it, deliberately left lights out and we found out later. He did end up having to pay us for this one.Disaster!
