am not a plumber. When I occasionally embark upon a plumbing
task usually within a few minutes I am wondering if my short
term memory has begun to fail.
This morning I decided to tackle the dripping faucet problem in the
Removing the single piece unit that shuts off both the hot and cold
water was quite easy. I took a photo of the unit that
dispenses the water and carried the camera with me to my local Ace
Hardware at Tates Creek Center.
Digital pictures are a insurance for my visual memory. Ace
doesn't always have what I need but they are much closer and much more
customer friendly than the big chain stores. The Ace help
quickly determined my part was discontinued brand and recommended I
make a quick trip downtown to Day's
Plumbing Supply. The
service desk man immediately identified the part and after only a
couple of minutes returned with the needed pieces. They he
face plate was not included but I was overjoyed to know I wasn't going
to have to hire a plumber. I must have looked like an amateur
because the gentleman was kind enough to make sure I knew how all the
parts went together. There were two small springs with rubber
inserts hiding in the original housing so I was grateful for the help.
I was anxious to get home and impress my wife with my
Getting all the pieces in the right place was easier than anticipated.
Ooops! I am ready to put the face plate back on but
can find only one of the finishing screws. After quickly
looking under all the debris and asking Kathy to help me
scour the bath for the rogue screw I gave up and reluctantly drove back
to Ace. I wasn't expecting to find a four inch screw that would work.
In fact I was contemplating doing an online search.
I walked into Ace and asked if they had a bolt like the one I
was carrying. Immediately a young man grabbed a bolt lying on
the counter and said, I found this earlier on the floor. I
resisted giving that young man a big kiss but did profusely thank him
for not throwing the bolt away. As I was driving back home I
mused about whether that would ever happen at a big chain store.
I doubt it.
Three hours and I have conquered the dripping faucet. I have
saved some water, saved some money and proved the worth of my
local hardware store.
