Water must be enemy #1 for homeowners, and we are learning a lot about it. So far, we have had three incidents involving water, and I sincerely hope we are all spent on these sorts of issues:
1. Flooding of unknown origin in the backyard, which was assumed to be the result of a clogged drain, wound up being a busted sprinkler line. Hello, $1800 water bill.
2. A few days ago, I posted a picture of a lightswitch that sprung a leak. This comes after an electrical outlet was leaking water a few months ago. Leaking might be an overstatement, as it was just sort of “weeping” water.
3. Today, we had an issue with a sprinkler actually leaking into the house! The water came in under the door, and ran around the corner into the pool room. From there, it leaked through the wall and into the garage…then down the driveway.
