Banned forever.....or not
A few weeks ago I noticed that my washing machine was starting to crap out. When I went to turn the washer shut off valves I discovered that they were "frozen" open. Nothing that I could do could get them closed. Not only that, but one of my main shut off valves would just turn without doing anything. I decided that it was time for "MR HOME REPAIR MAN". I took a half day off and picked up $36 worth of valves and copper at Menards. Three hours later, I finally finished. Maybe I should do this sort of thing for a living. before I decided to do it myself, I found out that a plumber would charge $300 for just the two washer valves, let alone one of the main shut offs. That really bites.
