I woke up this morning around 6am and went downstairs to get my normal bowl of cereal (Grape Nuts, if you must know) … and heard a hissing noise.
A little investigation revealed that it was coming from the pipe that had been ‘fixed’ the previous day. There was a very fine spray of water coming out of the joint the plumber had soldered.
I ran downstairs and shut off the water to the house, but I figured that if any damage was going to happen, it already did.
Ok, so I’m working from home again while I wait for the plumber.
Around 8am I called the plumbing company and explained the situation. The guy I talked to (supervisor or owner, I suspect) asked if the pipe had frozen … I said “no, it was just leaking”. He told me he’d have someone out in the morning.
Around 11:00 he shows up, with a new blow torch that will let him work in the small space around the pipe.
He spends about an hour and a half fixing it … hopefully for good this time.
I gotta say, I admire a company that stands behind their work.
