Crazy busy day

February 12th, 2018 at 11:35 pm

Yesterday I found some water under my electric hot water heater that had dribbled across the concrete floor in basement about 5 feet. I sprung a leak.

First thing this morning I called a plumber, assuming I'd have to replace it. Got the ok to work at home to deal with it. It's 5 years old. Called the manufacturer as my paperwork indicated it was still under a limited warranty.

However this morning, the wetness surrounding the hot water heater had mostly dried except for one area near the back wall.

The plumber came, but concluded the hot water heater was not leaking becus, he said, it wouldn't start leaking and then stop like that; He said the water was seepage from outside; we had a lot of rain all weekend, and actually, this would not be unusual if it did. Duh, me.

I asked him to go ahead and give me prices for 1) upgrading to a longer warrantied hot water heater and 2) upgrading to a heat pump and 3) to determine if my current model allows you to replace just the anode, which is the first part to corrode.

I ran out at lunchtime and got a replacement wiper blade for the car.

I also finished my tax return and after 3 tries, was finally successful at filing the federal return. Will get back about $1400. (The gallery's accountant will be sending me a revised 1099 form.)

I don't have the energy to start my state tax return tonight but will do that this weekend.

I also applied/enrolled to a new health plan on the healthcare exchange. I should get the welcome kit in about a week.

All in all, a lot of important tasks done. I had no time for lunch today, nor my lunchtime walk!
