Joys of home ownership

Water bill was substantially higher for last month. I decided to investigate. Broken pipe underground. Dug it all up and cut-in new fittings and even laid some pipe.馃榿

Just glad I caught it before my will went through the roof.

Why isn't the city paying or doing the work to fix the water pipes?

[@795132,Synyster] My old house was that way because the meter was in the basement.

[@593738,rainguy] Can't beat $40 and a little labour to repair what could be an expensive water bill. Yeah, those Sharkbite fittings are awesome.

[@593738,rainguy] Yup, that's exactly where my meter is.
