so the plumber is here again today. The week before last our bathtub stopped up and a very nice plumber came out to fix it. It was a bit funny, though, as he kept bringing in larger pieces of equipment and the noise from down the hall just got louder and louder. Finally, he had to go under the house to replace some pipe and that helped. Now he’s in the garage attempting to snake the washer drain and the same thing is happening. Loud noise for a little while, then fumbling as he goes to get some larger equipment. Then louder noise, etc, etc. All I can think is how much all that noise is going to cost 😉
