    Spent my day cleaning up our flooded kitchen and basement. Waterline under the kitchen sink burst. Fortunately, I was home doing paperwork in the basement when I heard the soaked drop ceiling collapse at the other end of the basement. Was able to run upstairs and turn the cold water shut-off valve off before the whole house flooded. Now have started the insurance process and am waiting on the water restoration folks to show up. Will probably need a new kitchen cabinet, kitchen floor, drop ceiling, and some downstairs furniture restored/replaced.

    How's y'all's days going?

    What caused the waterline to burst? Might it have been the non metal drain line/hose from your dishwasher? That did a tune on my dropped ceiling in the basement several times before I found a competent guy to fix it...

    The line from the shutoff valve to the faucet under the sink was that old blue pvc type stuff, which required many folks to replace it (in their yard) for their main water line due to potential for breaking. I didnít know my kitchen sink had it. Iíve checked other bathrooms sinks to be safe, and theyíre all good.

    Apropos of recent conversations regarding ethnic foods in Iowa, I had one of the better gyros of my life in Dubuque a few years ago.

    Headed out in a few minutes for an uncle/nibling day. They think Iím wacky and semi-seriously roll their eyes at me very regularly, and thatís exactly what Iím going for.

    Along the burst pipe front, if you want to worry about something when you're gone, worry about your fridge's ice maker if you have it connected. Several appliance dealers I know refuse to hook them up, they have a VERY high failure rate...I know three people who have had their kitchen floors ruined (plus basement damage) due to the shabby parts in those things.

    I've got more stuff to worry about if you're interested!

    My neighbors where I grew up ended up replacing 90% of their kitchen thanks to an ice maker. Dug up the floors down to the dirt, replaced all the cabinets, walls up about two feet from the ground.

    Left for a month, came home to a hot mess.

    Ok, see, my icemaker has quit working, but not a leaking issue. I do not need to hear this.

    I worked in an office that had a coffee machine installed one Friday afternoon. It had a small water feed - think McD straw or ice maker sized. We came in Monday morning to a flood, water 50' in each direction from the break room. Computers that were on the floor were fried. Fortunately the vendor got to pay ServPro.

    I'll work with 120V. I'll do taps and flaps in sinks and toilets. I won't work with water lines, though!
