Nail in the water pipe

Ask me how my day went……

The good news is that Claude Carnell of Carnell’s Plumbing was fantastic. ┬áHe was able to look at where all the leaks and drips were and figure out which wall had the leaky pipe in it.

The bad news is a builder had driven a finishing nail into the wall and pierced the pipe. Apparently these can go unnoticed for several years until the nail rots a way and ping, water starts spraying everywhere. This time we were lucky. It happened in a place that we noticed right away and it was in a place that was (relatively) easy to get to and will be relatively easy to repair.

It does make you wonder though just how many more nails are lodged into the pipes in our house, just waiting to spring a leak while we are out of town!!!!
