Kearney - The plumbing wars are over. TM is dancing around the house. Scared me a little when she started singing. Not something you want to hear.
PR came over this morning and brought his two helper guys. They dug out the old line and installed the new one in about 3 1/2 hours. They snaked the line to the kitchen as well. They added two "clean out" spots for future use if needed. Then they hauled away the old concrete line. When they covered up the line, they raked everything smooth. TM is very happy with the job. Even better, it only cost about a third what the plumber would have charged. That means that TM did not spend ALL my trial money.
Plus, TM went out last night and made a gate thru the fence, so now the Heat and Air conditioning guy can get to the heatpump without going clear around the house and through our yard (not that he needs to anytime soon!). All in all, quite a successful adventure - if unplanned.
Lowri - Kearney and I have been stuck in crates all morning. We didn't even get to greet the guys! At least we got fed.
