Comedy of errors
I went to the hardware store this morning and got some new washers and started taking apart the joints so I could get the snake I bought through the pipes. No problem there. It went through all 25 feet just fine. Well, then, what was the clog?
I put everything back together and water started pouring out of every joint! Hey, that's not supposed to happen! I twisted and tightened and took everything apart and used plumbers tape and put it all back together again. Still leaking like a sieve. Then, I used that tape you wrap around the outside, they sell it on those infomercials. Supposed to stop a fire hose, you know, can float your boat and everything. Yeah, except stop a sink from leaking!
Plus, the sink would not drain! Really? Where's the clog?
So, I decided to run the snake down the sink. BAD IDEA! Now I have a snake stuck in my sink and I can't get it out. I hope the plumber can get it out and he doesn't laugh at me too much. I'm about to cry. I feel like an idiot. Ugh.
