Plumbing and food dye

september 24 2008

Sometimes repairs in the house need to be done without male supremacy.
Today the drain of the bathroomsink was clogged enough to irritate me when doing a handwash.

Instead of using chemical dirt or a plunger, I turned the plumbing loose, got the muck out, cleaned it properly, and turned the whole lot together again.

Ofcourse I had to check if it was leaking, but I didn't feel like getting on the floor again.

I took some food dye, put it in the sink together with lots of water and had the whole colourful lot run away, while I held a white bowl under the plumbing.

Not one single drop of coloured water splashed in the bowl.
I even rubbed the connected parts with toiletpaper. Nothing.

The next time I'll use food dye again.

It works for me and I'm sure it'll work for you.
