Knowing Stuff

February 11, 2018

Unfortunately, sometimes I know too much stuff.  (Insert eye rolls from Team Offspring).  I’ve learned more than I ever wanted to know about old plumbing, (the house’s, not mine).

Let me give you a reader’s digest version of stuff I know.  Gurgling or bubbling in the shower, when no one is showering, is not good.  You can pretend for a short while, that nothing is wrong and it is just that you might be running the dishwasher and the washing machine at the same time.  This form of denial, just buys you a few more flushes until you succumb to reality.

I also know exactly what will need to be done next.  Which is why after church today, I was attaching about 100 feet of lawn house to the stand pipe and looking for the plumbing clog bladder.  (Seriously, that is what they call it and we have a few of them, but only the big one does the job.)  I also, know which one that is.

When My Loving Spouse gets home, he will take over from here, because he is an old-fashioned kind of gentleman.  (Luckily for me!)

We are also buying a new toilet with the hopes, that it will flush like a most powerful rocket.

There are no pictures, for obvious reasons.

So, what kind of stuff do you know?

    I know that the little strip of floor between the stairway hand rail and the wall is called a stringer. I know that if you want that part to have new carpet like the new carpet that was just put on the stairs, then the guy who does the measuring has to tell the person ordering your carpet to send enough to cover the stringer. That way the carpet installers have enough carpet to cover it.
