First we had the septic trap giving us problems for a month, then yesterday, the Water Company having cut the water for repairs, turned it back on full power, instead of gradually as usual, and have cracked a joint in the cold water inlet to the sink in our bathroom, I have tried an epoxy repair, but it didn\’t take, so it looks as if I am going to have to break a tile on the wall, to get at the pipe, as the joint goes into it.
Then this morning the waste pipe from the shower was blocked, but I think that has cleared itself, Marcela heard an odd noise after her shower, and everything now seems to be working. I thought it was her hair in the waste, but I have been out, and bought a snake, I managed to get the drain cover off in the shower room floor, and the snake went through and back without any trace of hair! I have put a bottle of chemicals down just to ensure there isn\’t a problem further along the pipe.
I should then have got stuck in to the water leak, but the weather is so unpredictable, so whilst the sun is out, I have cut the lawn, pruned the fruit trees, picked a bowl of oranges, and cut the front hedge, I think that will do for today, I\’ll get back to the leak tomorrow, when it will probably be raining.
