I come home from work today and open the door and the first thing I hear is what sounds like spraying water! 8O I think OH S@#% so I run downstairs as thats where the sounds was comming from. I am greated to a nice humid/damp room. The sounds are comming from the laundry/fishroom area so I go in there and splash splash my feet make as they hit the floor. I see water dripping off the bottom of the upstairs steps. 8O 8O It sounds like its comming from the fish room so I go toward the fish room but wait... I get past my sump pump thats in the basement and the floor turns dry. Hm... Not comming from the fish room. Then I investigate further and find its comming from one of the washer lines. Looks like it dryrotted or something just before the fitting going into the washer and it was spraying water 15'+ across the room.
As my luck would have it it was the hot water line. So who knows how much water was wasted and how much natural gas was used to heat the water that was beign sprayed all over the basement. And now the AC
is running non stop trying to dump the mosture and heat from the air.
So yippie as I wait for my next water, gas and electric bill. Plus now I get to fix the washer.
Thank god it was not the tanks. Also I am very thankful the water didnt trip any breakers or blow any fuses.
