Plumbing Update

The plumber came today and fixed our leak in 2 seconds.  I'm not joking about how quickly he came in and fixed the problem.  All he did was put tape around the end of the shower head that screws into the pipe. According to the plumber, they used tape on the actual shower head but used putty on the other piece that goes into the wall.  Ok...that sounds like someone took the easy way out, and look a problem ensued!

Now, I have to contact Ryan Homes to have the drywall repaired.  I will also let them know that I don't want them to simply sand and repaint the area, but I want the wall cut out.  I'm sure that water has been running for quite some time (remember my husband and stepson use that shower and do not observe anything) and I think the drywall has been compromised.

The plumber suggested that we use the shower for the next couple of days to make sure that we fixed the problem. Then I will email Ryan to get drywall repair ball moving.  So, on to the next one for another plumbing update. Still, I can't complain about having this issue--it is still minor.

Well, happy building everyone...and for those of you that are still in the construction phase, see if you can check that your faucets are being secured by tape and not putty!


  1. I hope replacing the putty gets rid of the leak for good!

  2. I thought it was real that the plumber fixed the leak for 2 seconds. LOL! I don’t think there’s any plumbing issue that can be fixed for just two seconds. That’s impossible. The fastest repair that I’ve tackled so far is one hour. +Javier Hallum

  3. Two second doesn't mean exact 2 second. It's is just used to express regarding short best possible time. When I got plumbing work for boiler repair though it was tiny task but it also took 45-50 minutes.

  4. That plumbing service was fast, indeed. Hahaha! Fixing a leaking issue as quickly as that is really amazing. Kudos to the plumber who did a great job! In any way, I'm glad that everything has been resolved by now. Let's just hope that your shower pipes will function at their fullest extent for the long haul. Thanks for sharing that, Danielle! All the best to you!

  5. It’s great that your plumber was able to fix that in a jiffy. It is amazing how plumbers have their way of fixing broken stuff that may seem complicated for others, but they are able to do it with ease. Anyway, I hope you haven’t encountered these kind of problems recently. Thanks for sharing this with us, Danielle. All the best!
