So, plumber came out this morning as I didn't have hot water in the kitchen again. (I did open the cabinet under the sink last night, Mary - didn't help). He had to use my hair dryer to thaw the pipe in the basement, under the ceiling tile. So now I need to keep the ceiling tiles open the rest of the winter! While he was here, I had him install the new faucet I bought yesterday.
This is going to be another long winter! At least I have a sprayer on the faucet now! LOL
Nothing else has gotten done today. I have the feeling not much will get done the rest of the day either!
He did tell me what to do if I ever go on a trip - even in summer: turn off water to house and open all the faucets in the whole house. Can turn the knob to "vacation" on the water heater too, if you want to - probably won't make any difference as the water will be turned off anyway! Good information to know anyway!
Until next time....blessings.
