I'd rather have been cooking

The hideous chore is over and it was successful, but that doesn't mean I enjoyed it.


Taking this one out was necessitated by a broken driveshaft. It was in the house (built 1972) when we bought it, and we left it in when we did the kitchen remodel, so it was probably 34 yrs old. Noisy even before the shaft gave up.


This one went in easier than I feared, only a few small hassles. It has half-again as much hp as the old one, and you can barely hear it run. No leaks so far.


Still life with old parts and tools.

This kind of work always sounds easy on paper. Those rust-welded locknuts ruin the fun for me.

I bet you are glad it is over.

You still have time to cook a steak.

Plumbing sucks! That's why when you call a plumber they charge so much!

Take a look at the second picture. 5 different connections some with different parts that all do the same thing. Is this the best freaking design they could come up with?
