geyser in crawlspace

Recommended Posts

I squeezed through the 12 inch high access panel and into the crawl. Once in the clearance was about 18 inches so not that bad. I hear this hissing noise and see some moisture in the floor.

Roll to the left about 6 feet and peek around the corner and there it is, dousing and blasting everything in a 10 foot radius.

I'm glad it happened at the inspection and not after.

Was this a house that the water was turned on for the inspection?

No. There was also wet ceiling drywall above a bathroom sink. It would have taken longer for the material to get saturated like it was. The owner was there and cut the drywall open on the spot and found a nail had been driven through the CPVC distribution line in recent renovations. It's a shame for these things because this was one of the nicest little houses I've been in lately.

In addition, I accidentally bumped a 2" PVC drain line with my elbow while in the crawl and heard a cracking noise. The fitting came apart. I know that properly glued PCV parts do not come apart like that.

BTW, I never turn on main water supplies if thats what you're getting at.

Yea but...I bet you still think young. Just give me hope and say you do.

I'm 58 and just pulled off a 20ft gainer dive on the river yesterday. My one month younger buddy was doing swan dives, so i had to.

C'mon Denny. It ain't that hard to fall off a cliff into the river! Even real old men could do it.

That's my succesful contractor friend doing a swan dive. I had been jumping in feet first cause I no likey head first, then he pulls that off. So I conjured up a gainer that was pretty good, so I quit diving after that. No girlie screams, this time.
