Plumbing, glorious plumbing
Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..the wonderful sound of toilets flushing! After that nasty relapse last night and a major bleach-pouring scrubbing clean up, I used a good quantity of Draino to influence the remaining clogs that they should leave the building, and our system. The first run of hot water resulted in the nearest toilet bubbling back up, so I reapplied and left things all night. The bathtuub and toilet both passedthe running hot water test without so much as a glug or a burp! The hot water lines have sealed tightly. Charlie's recommendation? BUY THE $8 a piece pressure connectors. FORGET epoxy, forget soldering. Sweet Naomi told me she wanted to write her Daddy a note about the hot water. Is this not the most precious note a Daddy could get from his 7 year old daughter??
