Leaky Stuff

The faucet is leaking again! We just changed it and it is leaking.


This is where a little education in terminology is required. The pipe in the wall was only a polypipe. That means some thing that resembles plastic.

In the process of tightening the faucet so that it might be water tight, the polypipe cracked.

We had some cosmetic repair done using silicone.

Alas it was of no practical use – the faucet moved every time we used it. Turn on or off, or even swiveling the head caused the faucet to react violently. Sooner or later we were expecting a leak.

We were not wrong.

This morning our suspicions were confirmed.

We need a real GI pipe for the faucet in the wall.
