So yesterday after we arrived home from work and then did farm chores and back to house we noticed a stream of water flowing through back yard, this can't be good....only thing back there is our water line, sure enough water line leaking.....so I fill tub with water for stool and fill animals water, set up coffee pot, dishes ect ect and DH turns water off at main meter.....A phone call to a plumber who has done work for us in the past (putting in spigots for farm/sheep) and he says he will be out today and take a look, today we are home from work and NO plumber, no work done notta.....
DH's calls him and asks why he hasn't made it? he said because the backhoe is tied up still and now he thinks it will be a few days before he can get over here with it.....GRRRRR So a whole day wasted not having this info as I could of started calling others, so this is what I did this eve, I called this place and that place and this one and tried that one, NO ONE can come anytime soon, soonest was in about three days...FYI, SO if your rural and looking to start up a business and you can get a backhoe you will surely be back logged!
So I called a GRAVE DIGGER, yep a grave digger and HE IS HERE NOW with his back hoe....YIPPY Okay, so this grave digger is also the guy I purchase all my hay from for the sheep in the winter he has one of the contracts for a few cemeteries in the town I work in, lol....DH said I don't care what you bury in the hole just come and dig it up.... We will take very good care of him with payment, as he is my hero!
So FYI if you get the run around for plumbing outdoor service try a grave digger,
After hole dug and finding water line and point of leak, PVC pipe coming out of back side of house into ground had a couple of turns and of all things one of the 90 Degree elbow's was cracked, strange for a elbow fitting to be cracked....being rural my DH is a pack rat and has and keeps all kinds of stuff for repairing things, he had all the parts needed for the repair and it was fixed by 9:00 pm last night, but pipe glue said two hours to dry for X amount of PSI water pressure, So DH stayed up until 11:00 PM and then turned water back on and checked to make sure repair area was not leaking, all was good and my life is back to normal this am.
