Man oh man. You know Murphy's Law. Of course we have our own Military Murphy's Law that we all are aware of. You know- everything breaks when your husband leaves. Well, that is currently what is going on in my world.
I had that leak a few months back and turned all the water off in my bathroom. Well, I had the plumber come yesterday and everything was fixed. Turned out to be my toilet seal- $100 and all fixed. I was THRILLED!!! So worried that it was going to be some major leak or something and dreading to find out reality.
Well- I was excited too soon. This morning my sump pump went out. After all night and morning of rain it decided it was done working for me. ( a sump pump is in the basement of some houses and removes the water from the foundation) Anyway- I went to go start laundry and saw some water. Hmmm I had the plumber here yesterday and I thought he fixed everything. great- he must have missed something--- right!
Whole new problem. My sump pump stopped sending the water out but it is still coming in and now all my lower drains are stopped and overflowing. Just fabulous!! I start trying to self fix the issue. Power is on, breaker is good and the pump is just making a weird clicking sound. Oh wait- no time to try and fix the issue the water is coming and now overflowing in the bathroom next door.
I call the plumber and he is at another job but will get here as soon as possible. Oh No!! please be soon!!
I start bailing water. One pitcher at a time, up and down the stairs. I have to pour it outside since my drains are full. After 12 dumps the water looks the same. :-(
Plumber calls and is on his way- it had only been 20 minutes. THANK GOODNESS
He was wonderful- Started working fast right away and fixed the problem quickly. He could tell I was a little frazzled and was so nice. So I now have a new sump pump, lots of towels to wash and a new bill on the way.
Honey- are you coming home yet????????
