    ...plumbers make 60 bucks an hour. They deserve more... My mother came running out of the kitchen yelling "there's a flood under the sink!!" We went out to look and there certainly was a flow of water exiting its way out and across the floor.

    I emptied everything out of the cupboard and looked. The drain was leaking... Could be worse. I pictured the water pipe frozen and spraying everywhere. Well, that's no tough fix right? Ten minutes right? [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I broke the connection the rest of the way.... [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Now was the flood! [​IMG] [​IMG] A wave of stinky greenish black water washed over my hands and splashed into my mouth...[​IMG] Then a horrid stench of sewer gas rolled out of the pipe... [​IMG]

    We're off to the store to get a new end and some pipe dope. Plumbers, my hats off to you. [​IMG] And by god, you can have it! [​IMG]
