I was sitting at the dining room working on the latest puzzle. The washing machine and dryer were going and I could hear them as background noise. I must have flushed the toilet and it never stopped running, but I didn't hear it over the other faint noise. When I finally went to see if the dryer was finished I heard the water in the bathroom. The thingy that stops the water when the tank is at the proper level must have gotten stuck, and there was water ALL OVER the floor. Good thing it's a tile floor. I immediately turned the water off at the source and began to clean up the sea of water all over the floor. Not a good way to spend the morning. I think I have all the water cleaned up. Rats!
I think I need a good workout on the treadmill, but since I just ate my lunch I should wait a little while. Now my back hurts, and I want some chocolate!
Mike, Sandy and the boys came home from soccer practice and pizza about 8:30 this evening. Water had gotten most of the floor wet in the garage, as well as the plaster walls and ceiling. I can't believe it caused that much damage because it couldn't have been running more than 45 minutes, about the wash or dryer cycle, and I was listening for them to stop.
The insulation is going to have to be pulled out of the garage ceiling and replaced, as well as some major plumbing work.
