J and I live in on post housing, which is a rental. If something breaks down in the home, or with the appliances issued to us for the home like the stove and fridge we call in a repair.
Yesterday as I was doing laundry with my own washer and dryer, they don't issue us those appliances at this installation, I noticed how wet the floor was underfoot. Immediately I checked the washer connections. My connections were fine. However, the cold water spigot wasn't fine. It was leaking at the nut. Great!
I turned off the cold side and called in the repair. J came home at lunch and moved the dryer out of position so that the repair crew whenever they would show up would have room to maneuver.
Here are some photos of what I found.
Now for the photos of what was there after the crew arrived and got to work.
They will call me to set up an appointment to do the drywall and painting. They'll either have to replace the tiles they said or re-glue them down. These tiles get really brittle so I don't know if they can be saved. I'm just glad the water didn't get into my dryer and electrocute me while I was using it. Not like they really seemed all that interested in what their water leaking might have done for damage to my appliances mind you.
So today, the day I normally make cookies for the soldiers at the COF, well it won't be happening not with my kitchen being a walk way galley style to the utility room and all this mess there. I'd rather not have debris end up in the dessert.
I may need to buy one of these when I PCS to the next place.
