sorry to hear that bud.  Sounds like your daughter has pretty good grounds to get the custody arrangement modified, though.

Just when your feeling down, along comes somebody that's far worse off than you and cheers you up cause it's them and not you.

Just kidding Bud. That really sucks when Bad Fortune decides to take a big ole dump on you, and Bad Fortune must now feel better after visiting you.

Thanks guys, I've been feeling like a snowball rolling down a long hill.....  Along with the ruptured waterheater I found a bad float switch in the basement upflush tank so naturally it too was flooded then as I was vacuuming up all the water I burned up one Shop Vac and one Bissell carpet cleaner while pulling out over 50 gallons of water from the carpets down there.  The carpets are still soaked....

The flooded upflush tank turned out to be the float switch and not the pump.....

I thought I blew a fuse when the shopvac bought it,  looking i found a tripped breaker but it keep re-tripping.  When I looked closer I saw it was the Dosing pump circuit and knew.....

Sure enough the Dosing tank was flooded outside which means the septic tank was too..... About the only redeeming feature to my septic system is that just about the the Dosing tank fills up I get gravity drainage into the sand mount.  That prevents sewage from backing up into the house, thank God!

Anyway, $130 later I've got the tank pumped out so I can get to the defective sewage pump.

Now back to the original problem.....  new water heater Ouch 
 
Priced them out at $400 to $1200!!! ConfusedAngry

2nd problem - new float switch  $32
3rd problem - new sewage pump $250-400

You guys starting to understand why I was feeling like a snowball? LOL

I froze overnight so my utility pump is probably frozen too... Ouch


Stress levels have been better I must admit.... Embarrassed

Had I known what I do now I would have filed an insurance claim and had ServicePro come in and deal with it, but frankly I'm afraid of what it might do to my rates.... Confused

 theres a difference in water damage and flood...... flood insurance covers rising natural waters... homeowners covers this kind of damage.

UGH!!!  I'm a little sore and grumpier than usual this morn.  Dang alarm didn't go off and I was about 45 minutes getting up.  At least I slept well, better than usual actually....

I wrestled the old Water Heater out of it's corner last night and went and picked up the new one with my next door neighbor's help....

Now I got to tear out some drywall that's growth black mold... before I can put the new water heater in it's new home.... and take a bath... Embarrassed  Wink

Mornin gents.

Bud, I'm wondering about this bath with no hot water?
Any word from your insurance?

Yeah I'm being careful while handling or disturbing anything moldy.  I only needed to replace one piece of drywall next to the tank.  Got all that taken care of and hotwater back on about 8pm last night.

Lord what a glorious shower this morning!!!! Big smile   Bud Clean....Bud Happy!

I ware a  cartridge mask and gloves when handling moldy stuff.....  That and it goes directly outside once detacted....

Afternoon gents

I'm finally getting to the coffee house after a slow trip through the rest of the OT.

Bud, glad your getting a handle on your house issues.
I was talking with a friend of mine earlier, and we were talking about being financially prepared for such disasters. It's part of the reason I'm still working.

Good weather here right now, but cool.
