Got Leaks? Some leaks are very obvious like a faucet or shower dripping, but other types of leaks you may not know about until you see a water stain. Ever see a stain on the ceiling and been filled with the sense of doom? “Doom” in this case, is the “how much damage has been done and how much will this cost me” feeling.
I know of a particular family that avoided their teenage sons’ bathroom like the plague because teenage boys can just be so stinky and gross. Well, let me tell you, all of that avoiding did them no good! One day they noticed a stain on their ceiling directly under the boys bathroom. When they went to investigate they noticed water all around the toilet and when questioned about it the boys just shrugged their shoulders and said, “Yeah, it’s been leaking for awhile.” very nonchalantly.
Leaking for awhile!!! Oh to be a teenager and not have to worry about the financial consequences of things. I guess maybe they thought it would stop leaking by magic, I don’t know, maybe they didn’t think anything at all. For the rest of us, here in the real world, something leaking and then finding the dreaded water stain may cause a few heart palpitations instead of just some shrugged shoulders.
