Day 211

Thursday afternoon, Scott noticed a brown, sticky substance on the basement ceiling tile. Further investigation found there was a leak. We thought it was this pipe joint (we later discovered it was coming from MUCH higher up, in the bathroom). I was running the dishwasher & it started leaking. I stopped the d/w, it stopped running. Later, someone used the upstairs bathroom. Nothing. About 10 minutes later, drip, drip, DRIP!!! Big drips!!!

We called a plumber & he has to take out the vanity and cut a whole in the wall to get to the problem. He couldn't finish it that afternoon & would have had to charge us HUGE amounts to finish it after 5. We scheduled him to come back on 8/10, 3 days after we get back from KC. We can't use the upstairs sink until after then. The kids are brushing their teeth & washing their hands in the tub. Fun!
