Why Is It So Wet? Tuesday, January 12th, 2016 at 12:22 pm
Written by: leprakhauns

Since we bought this house we have had an issue with water. When we moved the wall a pipe broke, our washing machine was leaking water a few times before we replaced it, the discharge pipe for the air conditioner was filled with crap and overflowed, the sewer pump in the basement was clogged with a rag and overflowed, and most recently our master bathroom flooded.

The last week I’ve been dealing with a flooding bathroom. The most frustrating thing about this particular leak is that we couldn’t find where it was coming from. It appeared like it was coming from under the toilet, a toilet that we put in less than a year ago, so I put food coloring in the tank and bowl to make sure that was the case. That was not the case, the water was clear. Since it was clear I started feeling everything, the bolts on the toilet were dry, the incoming line on the toilet was dry, plus the other side that was stopped up was dry. The way everything was pooling next to the wall and under the toilet, I thought it might be coming from the shower in the other bathroom, finally I found that the shut off was loose and tightened that.

It was fine for a day or two and then it started flooding again. This time I found it to be coming from a bolt under the tank, the same one that was dry last time. It’s been a few days and so far it’s been dry so I am pretty sure anything that has been leaking on the toilet is fixed.

For now I am just waiting for the next water issue to come up again.

    It seems as though you and Krissy are having some rather rough patches in your guys’ life. I hope you get this water leakage figured out soon, before you have to move elsewhere or it gets out of hand.

    A couple floods are nothing, every house floods at some point and with the lack of preventative work the previous owners did, it’s really no surprise.
