The shopvac for 48 hours nonstop was last month. This is the wet mop and a fan. I hope we don't have a repeat of this when the thing runs again tonight. I might request we live with hard water for a bit. This is not well timed with company coming. That's always the way....

At least the water didn't ruin lesson plans or 72 planet projects

I'm a little bummed out from yesterday, I started smelling gasoline around my car. After checking twice and not seeing anything, it finally got bad enough that it started dripping under the car.
The car is out of warranty by a couple months and 10K miles. Rolling Eyes
I called the dealer and he said to bring it in anytime. The problem is that it's a 30mi. trip down the I, and I've seen too many burned hulks along the road in the last few years to do that.
I,ve got the Ranger for transportation so thats not a problem but I still have to get the car hauled to the dealer sometime in the near future. Sad


if you drive fast enough, you can outrun the flames Twisted Evil


I'm not sure a Fiesta will go THAT fast. Of course Portage is sort of downhill from here. Laughing

Jar42, we cold follow you to Portage with a fire extinguisher and give you a ride if the car goes up in flames.

How about some duct tape for that gas leak?

You do need to get that car fixed because we won't recognize you in your other vehicle when we see you on the road.

As one Lime Squeeze owner to another...I hope it's nothing serious.

Almost makes you want to be a Mazda owner so the spiders would seal the leak from the inside

It's definitely serious. It leaks only when the ignition is on so that means its a gas line or fitting and its on top of the tank so the tank will have to be dropped.
I'll have to see if I can get an advance on my Social Security. Laughing

It looks like there's a mouse nest up there too. I don't know if the mice would eat the spiders or vice versa.

Mice like to eat the lead wires. So, you could have sparks and a gas leak. Shocked Shocked

Happy Easter.

Spent a few days hiking around the Southern Kettle Moraines. Hiked a total of 45 miles with Friday being a long 28 miles.

Ugh! We found water in a different part of the basement this morning. Bunch of old videocassettes have to go. This time it seems to be related to the water softener, though we don't know how.

Check the top of the softener. It may well be at the mixing valves (brine, rinse). They eventually rust or stick and this causes the leakage. By taking the top head/cover off and running a recharge, you can spot if it leaks.

Biggest hassle is you have to wait the required period of time it takes to recharge/run a cycle. By taking this part of the unit apart and cleaning it, you can get a few more years out of the softener. For a temporary fix, open the bypass valves (no soft water though).

May be your cause. Chewed on the synthetic part of the fuel line=leak. Keep those mouse traps loaded year round.
