Kitchen Leak

Monday, November 15th, 2010

This morning I went downstairs to make a bottle for Claire after I got dressed and when I approached the sink I experienced a distinctive splat and wonderful feeling of stepping in a puddle of water in my socks. After a few choice words I wiped up the puddle and saw water dripping from the cabinet below the sink.

I went back upstairs to feed Claire and when we came back down I took all the stuff out of that cabinet to see where the water was coming from. I looked at the drain, the garbage disposal, the pipes feeding the faucet, the wand hose; everything looked good and was dry.

I had given up and was going to see if the water came back after work when Rachelle found the source. There was a gallon milk container under the sink full of distilled water we used to feed an orchid with that had sprung a leak. I guess some cleaner bottle leaked under there recently and some of it got on the bottom of this container and ate a hole in it.

The water didn't do too much damage to the inside of the cabinet, but it's no longer in the pristine condition we got it in. That makes me sad because I would have loved to keep them nice for as long as possible. It looks like we'll end up having to mount locks on them soon anyway since Claire is starting to get into everything, so I guess drilling holes for that will be slightly less painful now that they all aren't in perfect shape anymore.
