I just wanted to share a story of vindication about my woot addiction. They all thought I was crazy when I unveiled my beautiful leakfrog. Here’s the backstory:
I recently moved into a new house and the previous owners had (unbenknownst to me) jerry rigged a pipe in the wall. It was a drain that connected to a sink that they had to remove to sell the house (otherwise we couldn’t get a C of O). They stuffed a child’s T-shirt into the pipe to keep the water back. Unfortunately for us, a washing machine was also connected to the same pipe. Inevitably, the t-shirt gave way and began filling my basement with dihydrogen monoxide.
The other unfortunate thing is that we weren’t completely moved in yet so we had boxes of stuff stored down there. Pretty much everything I own.
My wife and I were at my Grandmother’s funeral at the time.
Lucky for us though, my mother-in-law was there puppy-sitting when she heard the majestic call of the leakfrog. Bewildered, she made her way to the basement, found the situation, stopped the washing machine, and put a bucket under the pipe. She single handedly assisted the leak frog in saving the day!
Damage was negligible and most of the water flowed to the center of the room because there USED to be a drain in the floor but they had tiled over it. So it’s a natural depression in the floor.
Thank you leakfrog, and thank you woot!
