  • Just got back....

    Just got back (8:40p.m.)from a house I plumbed about 2 years ago. The owner (original) is and SBI investigator for N.C. He calls me in a desperate voice and says "I need your help! I've got 2' of water under my house." I wasn't near him and told him it would be awhile but to check his hosebibbs in the meantime & let me know if he finds anything. I wait about 15 min.-doesn't call me so I head his way.

    I get there, he tells me he found nothing and turned the pump off. That's good. I look underneath. Sure enough, about 18" of water, that's bad.

    What do you think I found? (No smarta$$ answers about my plumbing!)

              Sum Pump wasn't plugged in, or burnt out?

                      Crawlspace, well, septic.

                      Water table? Quit thinking like an engineer Wrench!

                      P.S. this is pretty easy so you guys might get pissed.

                            No. It's not tricky. It's stupidly easy enough I think I'll tell you as I know it's aggravating. I'll give a couple of hints then tell in the next post:

                            Don't think about plumbing but rather human behavior.
