We came home to a large
This is problematic. See, my house only came with 2 spigots, both tied into the house water line. I needed a line running from the water main (near the front gate) to the horse paddocks (behind the house). The guys that ran my water line did a clever thing - they removed the spigot on the North side, added a...splitter, I guess you'd call it, dug a trench, and tied everything in. They added a cut-off valve on the pipe coming up from the ground, and life was good. :grin:
Until today. The pipe sprung a .5" split right above the cut-off valve, and water was spraying *everywhere*. It would slow down when I ran water in the house...so the kids got baths early, and I ran a load of laundry.
The plumber came out straightaway (I think I have a permanent plumber; they installed the water filtration system AND the new faucet for $185, and came out tonight quickly), but didn't actually *fix* it. See, if he fixed it tonight, I'd be hit with a large bill (after-hours fees are big, according to him), so instead he capped it off and will be back out tomorrow to actually repair it.
Me? I'm happy - I have water in the house, and no leak. :grin:
He just finished - I must go close the gate and inspect his work. :lol:
