Another one bites the water

Mykey bites the water

Yeah, I found this shot of Mykey biting at the water. He's the one who taught Ally how to do that. Well, I'm gonna be a bit broke for a while, hopefully not too long though. I was out watering some of my plants but when I wanted to turn off the spigot it just kept on going ..... thankfully I live in a mobile home and it has a whole house water shut off. I called Roto Rooter, they've got the most reasonable prices in this area. The last time I had a problem I called a small business plumber who charged me over $1000 for the job he did and it wasn't that great a job either. I've got my fingers crossed that fixing an outdoor spigot won't be as expensive as that small time freak was. Sooooo, how's your day goin?

I'm so glad my husband can usually take care of maintenance issues like that.

The whole spigot had to be replaced due to the extremely hard water we have here.

@rebelann not fun! We have one faucet that freezes if we forget to cut the water line to it in the winter...it's now been replaced 3 times in the 5 years we've lived here. Which have acidic water that has eaten holes in the copper pipes. My husband has had to replace almost all the plumbing.

Oh shoot. I too hope the fix will be no where near $1000. Well, I replaced the pocket hose that had a fountain, due to a hole, going for 4 hours because I forgot to shut the water off. That water bill will be a big one. Love that photo!!!

That's happened to me before. Now I make it a point to let Ally out more often and when I do I can hear the water when it is on. Thanks, he was such a handsome boy and so very over protective, I miss him.

Fortunately I've been able to fix my own leaks @rebelann . Had one down my 750 foot driveway (section of pipe) and the spigot on the one by the donkeys (sawed off the old, attached a new spigot with glue); good to go.

@rebelann That's one thing I can thank my Dad for (since he treated me like a boy) was how to be a Jack of All Trades.

Not too bad. A bit productive, though behind on errands. Great photo. Hope they can fix it for you.

Thanks @KristenH it got fixed and now I have a new spigot. He suggested I look into getting a water filter because the water here is extremely hard so now I will be saving up to do that maybe next year some time.

I hope it isn't a lot of money. My day is about average I guess. Amazon has no intention of crediting the money back to PayPal they took without my authorization though...GRRR. Oh well, it wasn't much.

That small timer probably won't get much business if he keeps pulling those stunts @Shellyann36 as for RotoRooter I'm happy with their service, the guy did a good job but still $300 doesn't sound that cheap to me although I can see why he charged that much.

@rebelann No he won't stay afloat if he does that often. I am glad Roto_ Rooter took care of it for you.
