Water at my home has recently become an issue.

On Christmas Eve, my sister's fiance pointed out that my water heater was starting to leak and would need to be replaced soon. I crossed my fingers and hoped that it would hold out until I got my tax refund and that wish was granted.

Another thing about my water - it's the hardest water I've ever seen. I've been wanting to get a water softener for years, and this year I decided that since Dina's fiance is a real Mr. Fixit I'd go ahead and get one, then try to get him to help me with the installation.

So today I went back to the mall and bought a new water heater and a new water softener. I even thought for a while that I'd be able to pick them both up today, but alas, the water heater was apparently missing from the warehouse so I'll have to wait until Wednesday.

I spent a couple of hours tonight doing as much assembly on the water softener as I could. I had to stop when I got to the part about joining copper pipes together because (a) I don't have a blowtorch, and (b) It's a good thing I don't have a blowtorch.

I'll try to get Kenny to help me out with this stuff after I get the water heater.

I'll pretty much approve anything except SPAM comments, or comments that clearly have no purpose except to piss me off, or comments that are insulting to a previous commenter.

Use anything you want for your name and email address. I think it has to at least look like a valid email address though.
