#HouseMainatance- Drainage at it's best.
Over the last few days the down pipe tucked in the corner of the office and the bungalow has been , well some will call it a work of art, others may shudder, but the artist within just may appreciate the fortuitous look at a multi jointed, 'arty' - fact obliquus! Hey the fact that that meters of down pipe is holding okay so far is marvellous in itself it's completed] .
Today it was a day of getting ready for the tin shed guttering to go up. YES!!!
Having heard of the saying "Two sides to every story.... it happened today.
The only one with a vehicle that could hold a three meter long piece of gutter was the son who turned up late last night. The ute was quite capable of carrying the pipe. All he did was tie it up with the piece of two meter rope. The piece from the twenty meters that held got a few months back for helping then.
As we went to go in there was the Lions Clubs sausage sizzle. Yes I'll have one of those and mum willl...What do you want mum?" says he with the money out.
This was great cause unknown to him the stop after this was to be the petrol station.
This last week has been so frustrating re transport of long pieces of poly pipe. Public transport means the pipe has to be cut in half as it's classed a dangerous item to transport too larger lengths of materials. occupation health and safety issue.
Hence the ute tray was just perfect.
So into the shop. Straight down to the plumbing and bathroom area. There were the gutters. The choices being
For our needs a three meter piece of poly-pipe was the easiest choice.
Now luckily as the attention turned to the ends a floor staff person came past. The reason for our confusion was quite often the bits get put back in the wrong place. Once the ends were sorted out the things to latch the drain onto the shed.
Oh you drill into the shed!
Do you have a drill? Yes I brought that two months ago. Quietly thinking "but I now need to get those drill bits to make a decent hole." The hole for the water to come through.
With the instructions of
- Work out where the hole will go.
- Drill the hole.
- Use glue to stick this piece of pipe into that hole.
- Connect the down pipe to the ring thing under the gutter. Simple right?
