While I’ve enjoyed the Facebook posts regarding the earthquakes in Arizona and the mammoth efforts to rebuild, I immersed in a rebuilding project of my own. Last week I posted at about the water pipe bursting and flooding our living room and bedroom.
Part of the repair work involved replacing the pipe that burst. This pipe fed the hose bib to the back yard. It also fed the irrigation system and the automatic pool filler.
Since the irrigation system is currently buried under inches of dirt in our yard, we decided to dig it out. And dig and dig. There were 3 lines all together as well as the controls that had to be unearthed. Then we discovered that the condensation from the line from the AC fed into the pool line.
What was that about? Anyway, it took us 2 days to dig it all out. Then we headed to the local HoDe’s and bought paint that formed a vapor membrane, scraped, cleaned, and sanded to clean the brick and cement foundation.
We finished just in time for the rain. Hubby plans to fill the spot with sand for drainage and black soil. Then he wants to plant bulbs and annuals. Now, we just have to figure out how to plant and care for bulbs.
Anyone have any experience in this? Advice is welcome:D
