    One Christmas day the threaded section of the kitchen sink drain crumbled away, I was about 13 at the time and "fixed" it with a funnel made out of a gallon jug attached with an old piece of radiator hose.

    About 25 years later my mother had a plumber in to replace the old galvanized pipes, he looks under the sink and says "that's interesting"... :laugh:

    Well, elections have not been held and I would expect a full slate of nominees for President with many valid claims to the title. Then again, it is more of a default position than an elected position. OK, Prez, all you!

    The problem is the "5 minute jobs" always bite my

    and turn into multi-day extravaganzas requiring disassembling major portions of the house, warmed up credit cards and much swearing. :rant:

    Several years after my dad died, my mom's kitchen tap needed replacing. Working under the sink was nasty because there was only one cupboard door with the accompanying width. After I shoehorned my way thru the tap I tried it and the drain leaked ( I had noticed it was wet when I started). I followed the leak to that thread tailpiece and found that years earlier my dad had "rebuilt" it with silicone. o_O Much of the pipe underneath was now gone and about a 3" section was nothing but silicone. The strainer assembly was installed before my parents bought the house some 45 years earlier. I ended up having to cut the retaining nut off with a Dremel to replace the strainer assembly. It was a ton of fun working under there! :rofl:

    Yea, that was me replacing my bathroom faucet. Faucet was easy, but replacing the pop-up drain... well...

    It’s definitely fine, when I brought the mill home I was excited to get it working and it became temporarily permanent. There is no cable management option with this vfd, I’ll have to mount a junction box underneath and run wire between. When I get time. Someday.

    For years I had problems with the sink drain getting clogged up with a gel like substance - it would adhere to the vertical pipe (plastic). I would remove the pipe, take it out doors and clear it with a whipping motion. This occurred every 3 months or so. :confused:

    The pop up assembly started leaking so I replaced it with a commercial style with no pop up -- the gelling issue went away and hasn't returned in about 10 years. The only part I replaced was the drain tailpiece. :notsure:

    Status Update: Dean is taking a break from TW. A few of us got ahold of him in the past couple days and he is doing well, just a lot on his plate.

    Wonder if it's toothpaste causing the gel on the plastic? Ours does the same thing.

    Shaving cream/foam is a common culprit.

    I have a doctor appointment tomorrow afternoon, they just called to confirm and said I have a copay. I said yeah, I know. She said would you like to go ahead and pay that while I have you on the phone to save time tomorrow? I said no, I'm sure I'll have to sit and wait so that will give me something to do while I'm there. She said okay and hung up o_O

    The new drain is plastic too.
    The only thing different is the pop up is gone with the commercial style mesh opening replacing it.

    Previously I had to take it apart every 3 months or so, the gel would build up in the vertical pipe until there was only a pencil size hole. It hasn't been apart in years now.
