tub disaster!

Landan loves to take baths, especially in our jetted tub. Every Sunday morning I always know he will be spending a good amount of time in the tub. Last Sunday, I went in the bedroom after he had bathed and my feet sloshed in the carpet. I wondered how on earth the carpet in our bedroom got so wet. I started grabbing towels and soaking it up. The water just kept coming.
To make a long story short, the plumber came and diagnosed the problem. The motor had a crack in it which caused the water to leak through the walls and into our bedroom. It will hopefully be fixed by this afternoon. But what a mess!!
We had to cut a hole in our wall so the plumber can fix the tub and we very possible need to replace the carpet. This really STINKS!!

Yuck! No Fun...I am so sorry! Hopefully there will be minimal damage.

I knew your weakness for fancy tubs would be your eventual downfall. May I refer you to my post cleverly entitled 'shower power'...
Seriously, sorry about that stuff. No dang fun. We have a toilet sitting in our basement tub because of leakage problems. We just keep the door closed so we don't have to come up with a solution. Out of sight out of mind!

Oh No! What a mess is right! At least you caught it fairly early.

That really stinks. Nothing like unplanned expenses!
I have to chuckle about Landan in the tub, though. It is less typical for the man to be lounging in the bubble bath..

Ah, that sucks! You maybe wanted your carpets cleaned, but that is a little too literal! Good luck with that yucky clean up!

I am just feeling a little bit better about not having a jetted tub. We opted for the shower-power. But there are times that I think it would be nice to soak..or let the kids swim. ha
Good luck with the repairs. No fun at all!
