So there I was, sitting in the bathroom, minding my own damn business.
Then, a sound comes floating into my eardrums.
A familiar, whoooshing, rushing sound that means our lives are probably going to become extremely complicated.
It sounded exactly like the last time when we had a pipe that was leaking.
The problem with a leaky pipe in our place is that we have a cement slab foundation. It is not possible to go in and replace the leaky pipe.
Ok, well it is, if you have a mind to jackhammer your entire floor and walls in order to reach said pipe/s.
Hubba-hubba conveniently called in the middle of my intense listening session. I told him my fear. He cussed.
He reminded me that if I was to go and turn the main water valve off, that would be a pretty valid way to check. If whoooshing sound dissipated, ergo, leaky pipe/s.
I shut it off, and I swear I didn't hear it anymore.
Then I went back to make a second confirmation and I think my mind began playing tricks on me. I will check again later.
The last time we had a leaky pipe, oh about 7 months ago, we dodged a bullet because the leak was right in the kitchen and they only had to jackhammer about a foot of tile up to fix it.
If it is somewhere else, we are probably looking at a complete re-piping. Which will cost about three thousand dollars. Of money that we don't necessarily have.
