We've had a dreadful few plumbing weeks, the boiler dying on New Year's Eve just before the extended Bank Holiday and all the historic piping having t o be re-plumbed and all the parts we ordered having taken ages to be delive red :-( It's been c-c-c-cold but since Wednesday we've been WARM :-)
Today's problem was a drainpipe overflowing. It was blocked in the bend fro m the gutter but was sorted by Spouse. But while he was up there he noticed that the pointing on that corner was, shall we say, lacking somewhat. We p ointed all the walls fifty some years ago when we moved in here.
He wants to know what the tool is which he can attach to a drill or suchlik e and which will excavate the gap to a specified limit.
anyone know what I'm talking about?
I don't, it was a very good wine ...
Mary p.s. crows have been going along our gutters and throwing out lumps of moss . Never known that before!
