Saturday morning, calling plumbers. Just what I was hoping for.

The damage is not too bad but I did have a heart attack when I woke up. Also, thanking the homeownership gods x10 for the fact that it involved clean, new water that was supposed to be going into the tub but was instead diverting into the general downstairs. And not poop.

Crisis ongoing, but mitigated.

Plumbing issues are my least-favorite kind. Sorry to hear about the drippy morning.

So was the tub leaking or the pipes?

There's a chrome plated shiny pipe that comes from the floor to the fixture, and it came disconnected from the pipe in the floor. I don't know how this would have happened, because I used that bathroom before I went to bed, and everything seemed normal. I suppose it could be a hot/cold expansion thing, because that crawlspace where the pipe comes up to the 1st floor bathroom was quite cold and the first floor of the house is not.

It seems like a weird place for a pipe join, kind of hard to get at.

whew! and BTW, you should edit your Personal Settings and set Who can reply to your entries? to "registered users only". It keeps the children in their playroom. :)

I want people who aren't on LJ to be able to comment of course then something like this happens. Now I guess I'm torn.
