Always an adventure, our old building cried out for some attention earlier this month. Kenneth from Comfort South noticed water coming out of the ground near the loading dock at Wet Dog Glass and together with Santiago found the general direction of the flow. It was coming from a pipe under the building and they turned it off at the valve. It was hard to tell exactly where the leak was until we busted up the concrete and dug down about fifteen feet to find the poor old pipe, exhausted and fractured. Luckily the split was around the circumference and not lengthwise so we were able to patch it. Wesley Brown, the "do everything" guy in Star helped us out by supplying the clamp we needed to get the leak stopped. (It is the shining bit of blue amidst the red clay) Thanks Wesley!!
After that I ordered some perfectly mixed concrete from the guys at Chandler in Biscoe and we sealed it off as good as new...well as close as we could get. In addition to growing one hell of a yummy tomato, our resident gardener Anne Pärtna, can float concrete like a seasoned professional. The whole ordeal was a bit of a mess, but thanks to our awesome staff and our local help, we got 'er done.
