We really need to talk to our secretary(mom) about getting our posts out there a little bit more often. She has been such a slacker lately!
So, mom & dad have been worrying about this water that was coming up at the end of the driveway so they called the city water department. The city stated that the leak was on our property so it was our responsibility not theirs. Soooo, mom & dad called their insurance company, who sent out a plumber to investigate.
The plumbers decided to dig up the are where the water was coming up and much to their surprise - no pipes were leaking in that area!
Here they are filling the hole back in.
The hole all filled back in....
Further investigation revealed that a pipe in the garage was the cause of the water leak - go figure.
So, the plumbers come back and they brought monsters to eat through the concrete slab. You can hear the monsters in the following video... We heard them most of the morning!
This is what the garage floor looked like when the monsters were done with it.
This is the pipe that caused this whole mess.
That hole was at least 3 1/2 inches below the top of the slab. The plumbers told mom that when the house was built and the slab was poured, the builders tied a piece of rebar to this pipe and the vibrations of the water turning on and off caused it to rub against the pipe and put a hole in the pipe.
All repairs completed!
We haven't been able to visit our bloggy friends for a while - again slackery on our secretary's part. We will try to be around very soon!
We hope everyone had a good weekend!
