December has been a real pain in the butt when it comes to water. A leaking faucet. A pinhole leak in the pipes above the hot water heater. Coliforms in our water supply. The hits just keep on coming.
It all started here.
A pinhole leak which signifies a low pH. We need a water treatment system. Unfortunately those tests revealed bacteria, which prompted us to do a well shocking.
Chlorine put in the well. To kill the bacteria. The chlorine is still in the system after two days. When will it clear?
Who knows? But it is definitely interfering with my cookie baking. And the dishwasher is full. And I need to do laundry.
Our Christmas presents this year? A new faucet. A new water heater. And later this month. A water treatment system. Gee, isn’t that romantic?
I do like my faucet though.
We have the exact same faucet. Love it.
Took us a while to find it. We love it too.
Found it at Home Depot in clearance shelve.
I have that faucet too!!
That faucet is on my wish list, though I hope I get it in ‘planned way’ and not the path you had to walk – sigh – here, our newest public works director knows what he s doing and our aging infrastructure is walking through a series of upgrades which is month by month improving water quality, but I finally understand why I was blowing through a 3-6 month ‘top of the line, whole house water filter’ every month, for ever so long! Water is such a basic necessity and, to me, a basic human right – the increasing privatization and hits to potable water sources that seem to have filled the news for ever so long, continues to leave me in a ‘dark musings’ mood – hope your water-world is soon ‘right as rain’ – 😀
