So we went back to Lowes Sunday morning to purchase the drains and the new disposal. We got back home about 11 and completed the sink install.
Then the faucet...I tell you the people who write instructions should be shot. We figured it out but still...How aggravating!
Then the drain and PVC plumbing on the right side, easy enough. The the new garbage disposal on the left side went in easy, peasy.
Speaking of disposals, when we were at Lowes a retired plumber named Jeff was helping us out. I asked him what was the best quality and he pointed to one that said Badger on the side.
"Hey, a garbage disposal named Badger. Just like that skit on the Bob and Tom show. You know...arngh, arngh, arngh."
Both SM and Jeff laughed. They got it. It's an oldie but a goodie. Give Mr Obvious a listen. It's just a few minutes long and a classic. I laugh everytime.
Anyhoo, the moment came when we had to turn the water back on. You know that moment. Visions of Titanic dance in your head.
We crossed our fingers and turned. Nothing. As in leaks or drips. Yeah us! Then we tested the disposal. "Arngh, arngh, arngh"...Yeah us!
Then we heard a weird pressure noise and don't ya know it, the water filter started leaking!!! WTF? (All we did was change out the filters.) We discovered after tearing the unit apart that we must've thrown away a little gasket by mistake. I went out and emptied the trash can looking for it but couldn't find it.
So close and yet so far. So I stayed at the house with a fan on to dry out the cabinet floor that got wet while SM made a return trip to Lowes to try and find a replacement gasket.
So here it is. The big reveal. Before
Wow. Everything works well and I'm astonished at how big the sink is now.
Thanks for tagging along on our reno...."Arngh, arngh, arngh!"
