Kant Leak This
We realized this while I was brushing my teeth at the sink. Darwin came in and saw a wet spot on the floor. Since our three mischievous animals were hovering around, we thought one of them must have peed. But then when I stepped back, another wet spot appeared. I thought I must have water on my slippers, but they were dry.
I set my foot down near the wet spots, and to my surprise, water bubbled up through what, on closer inspection, were nail holes.
Then I had a general freak-out attack at the thought of all that water ruining the wood floors we were planning to restore.
But that night when Darwin tore out the plywood he discovered not tongue and groove original boards underneath but another layer of plywood. Oh geez.
Of course, this is good news and bad. Good: no wet boards. Bad: no boards at all.
We still think they're underneath THAT layer of plywood, though. And it's actually kinda good to know we don't have to set to work on that bathroom when we're not even finished with the other.
As for the leaky toilet, that's still a mystery. Darwin has replaced the wax ring three times now - this latest time with a KANT-LEAK Jumbo. Ha.
But now he thinks the water is leaking from the tank itself. That would explain why it still leaked even after the valve was shut off, but it doesn't explain why all the water appears to be in front of the toilet.
It would be just terrific if we could have the plumbers take a look at it when they come to redo our other bathroom. So it would be killer awesome if we could just finish the ever-loving painting and trim-installing, so we can schedule the plumbers' visit.
