This took…all the time.
I have no idea why. No part of it seemed that hard. But I got home from town at 11, went immediately to work on the faucet, and I just now looked up and it’s 2. Maybe the clock’s wrong, but I think I’m just slow. Of course there was the old faucet to basically chisel off the sink, then there was all that calcium buildup that I mostly ended up chiseling off the sink. And the actual plumbing part would have been simple if it weren’t for Joel’s Highly Idiosyncratic Pressure Gauge. Which BB sent me something like 2 years ago, so since I was re-doing all the under-sink plumbing I couldn’t really get out of it with further procrastination. But it’s in, and it works, and it doesn’t even leak.
And who knows? The point of the exercise is to give me some warning when the tank is running low, and the only way to test the theory involves first installing an improbably gigantic conversation piece of a pressure gauge on the sink because a rational-looking one wouldn’t be sensitive enough. It might do some good. Or it might just be a conversation piece.
Now I seem to have roughly 50% of all the tools I own scattered over the cabin’s main room for some reason, plus the sink area needs more cleaning up, plus I have to do chicken chores including moving over 20 gallons of bottled water, and only then may I experience the taste of beer. So I’m going back to work now.
