On hold while the receptionist of plumber said "Can I put you on hold while I have the head of water heater installation reach out to the technicians to see where they are at."
That means one of the following:
a) She looked in the computer and when said "HMM" Saw NO Record of the service having been scheduled-
b) They are actually thankfully SCHEDULED and they are just running later than planned.
That is actually good news and I believe it considering how long/ well rather how QUICKLY She came back on the line and said "They are just running late on the prior job and will be coming out- just give them a little more time."
Hell I have given two weeks of time waiting....
Hope they come out soon and the install goes smoothly without issue.
I need to ALSO call American Home Shield and deal with the other water issues in the house- I mean
The young clueless kid was taking apart the BOTTOM of the drain- the standard drain section and reinforced that with plumbing putty-
I did not SEE him take that part apart and reinforce itl. (Maybe he did?)
Not having had hot water I have not checked that -
I suppose a good idea to check that NOW right before the plumber who ostensibly fixed that comes back.
YEAH Going to fill the tub and see what happens.
I am skeptical.
AH My kid is just telling me that we KNEW for YEARS ( since kid in 10th grade) that our tubs can not be filled up past the overflow
My kid is like "Don't you remember that? You had Art look at it."
YES Art has been in my life off and on a long time. And maybe 10 years ago I did hire him to help with shoring up some plumbing issues- I recall he fixed leaky toilets and looked at stuff but true I forgot that part!
So maybe the leak in the ceiling was just randomly happening when I took a bath and filled it too much concurrent with the water pressure issues.
I am just glad the kid was not here contradicting me when the plumber was here! Cause the know it all kid is like "What does the leak have to do with the water heater?"
In any case AHS said all the plumbing could be looked at on one service call.
So much for that.
Plumber not here.
Test the tub-and if there is STILL a leak can at least try to get the plumbers to shore up THAT Part of the drain if it the problem when they are here.
It should not be a heavy lift for them! And it is after all what they were intended to address to begin with along with the water heater. AND the leaking running toilet.
OH the water in my tub not working at all. I kinda forgot that, I have been using my sink only.
YEAH my short term memory sucks.
So sponge bath and then the interview at 5pm.
Guaranteed that after sitting and WAITING as this is the #1 priority- to get this thing done today.
In GOOD NEWS My 20 yr old borrowed my car and was able to go to medical appointment, store and pick up prescriptions for self.
YES! I realized last night as was trying to figure out logistics of the appointments at same time-
Once I do land a job and finances are straight I would be willing to buy a new car and give the old one to the 20 yr old.
Oh the good news of the day is the kid did pick up the medication needed, the one that was a $450 co pay and YEAH
And the other insurance policy is still active. The other medication they picked up had been run through the other insurance already.
I am presuming that is why the Anthem policy I had bought through the Healthcare marketplace suddenly in OCT had no button for me to pay the copay
Confusing a bit cause again-
I think that is the biggest problem.
If only few can navigate them they are not very effective.
BUT THANK GOD that the kid saw a specialist today and picked up a prescription and was feeling well enough to drive and take care of self, including running to the store for milk and bread.
THAT IS so good! See what happens when I sit still and am not doing that for the kid?
YEAH my kid's medical care will be covered! - 2022-11-18
