Water Problems
« on: October 15, 2007, 06:12:21 PM »
Had a water main break yesterday in my yard. Have had to work with my dad all day digging a new water line for my home. The bad part of it all we have to dig a new water line across the driveway and up comes the pavement. All together we have to reinstall 175 ft of new water line to my home. This time around we are installing two lines one inside of the other to prevent the line from breaking. The fun part I have no water and have to go to my moms to take a shower fun fun fun.

Yeah the problem we are coming up with now is all the rocks that are up on our property. Also it has not rained here and the ground is dry. Tomorrow we have to rent a ditch trencher that will cost $175 for 10 hours.

Sorry to hear about the water problems. It's always fun to operate a trencher, or a Ditch Witch. Hopefully the rocks won't be too much of a problem. Nice and slow....

Jerry, just connect the broken line to your hose and that should be enough length.  :D Rocks and plastic pipes don't mix at all. Can you back fill with a foot of sand Jerry?

Well the other line was buried 26 years ago and we have just decided to lay a new line but this time around instead of putting one line in we are installing two lines one inside the other. Well Rod we have alot of limestone here and I guess over the years the ground has moved and caused a line to break. That or the roots from a nearby tree has grown in near the waterline. We think the leak is under the driveway but have no ideal where the water line is going since back in the 80's we had alot of dozer work done on our property. We also had to call the 811 for the fear of cutting into our power lines underground. The lady on the phone wanted to know if it was an "emergency" Excuse me my mom said well is losing 40,000 gallons an emergency. The nerve of some of these people. They will not have some one out until 3 days so we can begin digging. Right like that is going to stop my dad from digging. He is a total redneck says fuckit and digs anyway. In other words "Get Er Done".....

LOL, that's an Ohio Redneck saying too. I'm with your Dad on that. Hell cut through the lines, it will make them get there quicker.  :D

Please Call Before Digging. My ass!

I was going to seriously suggest doing that!  Cap off the broken pipe leading to the trailer.  Hook a hose to an exterior faucet and to the water supply at the well (or wherever you can).  It works for campers and RV's, why not your trailer.  Of course, this would be temporary.  At least this way you can use your own toilet!
