Broken water line

January 18, 2023 Leave a comment

Shortly after Tanya and Shane left, we heard a loud noise coming somewhere in the back. Took a look, and noticed water flowing out of the wall in the garage. We’ve had a rather severe cold snap, so we obviously had frozen water lines. Of course, it was Christmas Eve, so getting help was impossible. This is a rented house, so all repairs had to come through them, and they didn’t answer the phone. So I turned the water off and soldered a cap on the water line, then turned the water back on. At least we had water all weekend so we could flush toilets, shower, and cook.

After the weekend the rental company sent a plumber. He found three breaks, fixed them all. Another week or so later the sheet rock guy came and closed the holes in the wall so we are back to normal.
