My Husband Rocks! (1/3/10)

Daisypath Anniversary Years Ticker


Mr. Fix-It has struck again!

Remember when Seth fixed the portable DVD player!?

This time he fixed our leaky shower head. It was one of those drippy leaks like the over-exaggerated kind you see on commercials. Except we couldn't turn the channel to forget about it. It was obnoxiously loud!

The dripping kept getting worse, so Seth decided to tackle this on his own! I won't lie, I was a little nervous - and so was he - as this isn't his normal calling. But, after a little bit of internet research and a call to my handy-man Stepdad, he figured out that the culprit of our leak was the seal on the cold water knob. I was amazed that Seth was able to get the knob off. I had no idea where to start with it! And after a little more internet research, he learned that there's a cartridge inside the knob that needed to be replaced.


(this is inside the knob...kinda gross, huh?!)

So, after about 6 trips to the hardware store, Seth got all the new tools needed to remove said cartridge and some funny looking nut, got the correct replacement cartridge and fixed another thing that was broken, then got everything put back together!!!!

And guess what?

No drips!!!

Way to go Seth! You rock!

(...his next project is our leaking washing machine!)
