Basic Plumbing Skill

Share

Being at home for quite a while must have a huge effect for me recently as I learned to enhance by Do-It-Yourself skills on tinkering things inside our house. One time, while I have nothing to do, I took a peek under our sink to check on a long time leak problem. Leaks under the sink are disgusting, and promote bacteria build up and a den for pests such as roaches. Whenever I see roaches wandering around I always spray pesticide under the sink and it seems to solve the problem for a period of time but they do come back after a while. Technically, the leak on our sink is surely causing me a hard time and man, it is indeed tough.

The problem made me realized that I must fix it as soon as possible without the help of a plumber since I found problem, then I must solve it alone. I bought some tools and materials to be used and that includes the sealant, pipes and the most important thing, a set of copper plumbing supplies which I believe will do the trick mainly because copper produces no odor in longevity. It does not rust at all and it is easy to thread it without destroying it. Not to mention that it looks sturdy tough even though nobody will look into it unless they want to check my work or how good our plumbing system is. So there I have the right supplies and all I did was install it just like the old, worn out piping and fittings. It took me about an hour to finish the job though. I cleaned the old pipes before I dismantle it and then measure the proper sizes and lengths of the line to make it accurate. While I was installing the copper fitting, I also realized that this should be the one installed instead of the old plastic one because those plastic fitting crack after a few years which is the passage way of some nasty looking roaches and moreover it stinks.

It took me a little bit of observation and determination to start fixing the pipes and as of this writing  no leaks can be seen as I just did what my instinct told m too. However, plumbers are always the best bet for doing this kind of stuffs but of course, it won’t help doing it yourself at all. At least, I had the luxury of choosing the materials I know will work and I have myself to blame if it deteriorate after quite some time.

Spending time on my Porch Glider Chair

I have a lots of friends and quite a number of colleagues. Yes I enjoy their company and a night out with some of them is extremely fun however, tiring. Chatting with colleagues is enlightening as well as information just kept on coming in – false or not the feeling of having so many to talk to is inspiring. But what really strikes me the most is the need for some time alone. Being in a crowded environment is very exhausting, blending in speaking myself out and so on. The excitement to be alone for a little time is really the real deal whether I spend it out of town or just inside my room and staring at the ceiling or its four corners, a silent treatment is I think, the word for this. Well, I have my own way of being alone – or maybe just like everyone, but I do it as well on our home porch glider chair or to make it sound classy, a patio glider bench.

Being outside is different when you are enclosed inside the safe confinements of your home or office or maybe a spa to name a few. But sitting on the porch beside our closed doors brings a relaxing feeling couple it up with a coffee or reading a book just to kill some time. Being alone helps me think on some thoughts that is reserved, unlike with people around the pressure sometimes control how and what to I think. How not to be like this or that, not to act like them or by any circumstances, staying out of it is fulfilling. To cut the story short, I consider sitting on our porch as one of the best ways to unwind from a busy lifestyle. Having lots of people around us is not that bad but spending time alone is just as good as having all of them.

A good reward for everything that we have done in the past and a good way to live with our families. Check it out, it must be a good investment for everyone.

Enjoying home

I love my home more than anything else. You may ask me why but I’ll just say that my home is where I feel all the luxury I need. I can sleep freely, move around, enjoy the air and do anything I want. But guess what, a home will never be one without rugs. Now that I’ve thought about that, there was this one time that I am looking for stuffs that I want to put in my room so I went to a nearby mall and looked for discount rugs, luckily I found one. I just think that rugs can be simply amazing and there are no reasons that I need to tell someone, its just simply amazing and somewhat comfortable and so I like it. If ever you want to put something new in your home, try looking for rugs alright?

Mounting Valuables

Last time I renovated my room, I bought some useful stuffs like rack mounts and hangers. I made my room space efficient and mounting was the best way I came up with. Because my room is so small, I needed some work to make it look and have a feel of being big. I love fixing my room especially when it comes to trying different ways to make it look good but one thing I always and will always like is my guitar collection mmounted on the wall and some other collections displayed on a rack mount.
