Seems like every time I turn around in the last 6 months or so, something in my house is getting damaged by water.

Leaky window resulting in water damage to the windowsill.

Leaky shower resulting in water damage to the walls and trim.

Leaky roof resulting in water damage to the soffit.

Failing exhaust fan resulting in condensation damage to the guest bathroom ceiling.


Now this morning I discovered that a shutoff valve under the guest bathroom sink was leaking, resulting in water damage to the cabinet under the sink.


Sure, I love swimming, and showering, and drinking. But seriously, screw water.

It's getting to the point where I'm halfway tempted to move to the desert and build a house out of nothing but materials impervious to water damage.

"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

I can relate.

We've had the wettest "winter" I can recall. The ground is/has been completely saturated since the summer. Everytime I walk across the yard I hear squish, squish. (Doesn't help that the soil here is primarily clay). Usually there is a flooding warning after the winter thaw so it should be really interesting come spring.

I have a leak on the chimney flashing I have to fix once the weather improves. And water is very patient.

Don't forget about the mold that follows. Water. Like a women, can't live with it, can't live without it. Ha

13 years old, and still going strong, but on the list for replacement in the next couple months.

Luckily, it's in the garage, so even if it fails before replacement, damage will be minimal.

Wow, bad luck.

I have been helping a friend of mine with his problem, he had 3 inches of water in his basement.

The waste water drains were backed up from the melting snow and rain, nowhere for the sump pump water to go.

Feel your pain; last house we had a leak in the roof at the vent pipe - damaged the ceiling in our daughters home. Then the condensation drain tube for the HVAC system clogged and dumped water on the floor; we didn't see it for awhile so it soaked into the wall and mold started growing. House we live in now, finished basement flooded 3 times, roof leaked at the chimney, and water leaked from the tub plumbing into the walls and floor; total gut and redo which I'm still working on. Again, I feel your pain man.
