Day: February 21, 2024

Wed. Feb. 21, 2024 – just another, just another day-ay-ay-ay…

Cool and clear again/still. Yesterday turned into a beautiful day. Sunny, warm, nice breeze. Hoping for more of that today.

Spent yesterday continuing to address the tub issue in the morning, and then doing a couple of pickups in the afternoon. I decided to use epoxy to fix the pinhole, and then proceed with fixing the drain line. I have some heavy duty industrial fiber reinforced epoxy I picked up at some point. It is past its best by date, but it cured fine. IDK what the normal open time was but it kicked in a few minutes for me. I backed the hole with foil tape, then smeared the bare iron with the epoxy. As soon as it started to kick, I patted it with my fingers to shape it. Today I’ll do the drain line, if I can figure out the connection to the old lead drain. Furnco fitting to the rescue- I’m hoping.

Today I’ll have to hit the Home Depot or Lowes for the Furnco fittings, then do my pickups. It would have been more efficient to roll today’s pickups into my “big loop” yesterday, but it just didn’t work out. Sometimes it doesn’t. I’ve also got to get a couple of bins together for dropping off at my auctioneer Thursday. That shouldn’t be a problem.

So a standard day, with the exception of the added plumbing nonsense. Speaking of which, I should probably pick up some pex too, and start running the trunk lines in the attic.

It’s a great life if you don’t falter. So don’t falter.
