Always something....

Yesterday getting ready to take a shower,noted that the divertor was stuck , likely a bit of lime build up, in attempting to remove the spout, I snapped the pipe in half.
So a quick trip to the hardware store for a new spout.
Got home glued a coupler on the trimed pipe stud, & installed new spout, turn on the water and............nothing.
Turned water off and heard dripping in the wall, had to remove vanity, & found I had also snapped the pipe inside the wall. but I was lucky in that I had the repair parts I needed & was able to fix it without an additional trip to the store, ..........well sort of.
The vanity faucet had been dripping so since I had bought a replacement & while I had the sink out I guessed my "round tuit" had arrived for replacing it. The replacement faucet had been here for at least a year or two, opened the box & found the supply lines were already installed, great but only for a moment, they were to short to reach the existing plumbing.
So sometime today I'll pick up a new faucet.
The blades arrived for the lawn mower yesterday & since we have had a bout 6 inches of rain, in the past 10 days. that is past due so I'll get those on today since the plumbing project diverted me yesterday
The good thing about cvpc plumbing is it's cheap, easy to install, & easy to repair, downside it gets brittle over time.
