OK, the house was a mess, but what fun it was to see a wonderfully polite roof leak!
The house is a flip and I knew pulling up the report would be epic.
It was raining horses and cows.
There was a roof repair consisting of lumpy, wrinkled roll roofing, literally taped around a plumbing penetration vent.
There were unsealed gaps.
I could clutter the post up with numerous roof photos.
But that would upstage the star of the show -
THE WONDERFULLY POLITE ROOF LEAK!
There were lots of leaks. But we are talking about the "wonderfully polite" one!
In the attic space I could see brown water dripping onto and down the bathroom fan vent tubing.
From there I could see it making its way to the bath vent.
Inside the bathroom it was obvious that water was furiously dripping from the vent. See how brown the drip is coming off the vent?
Where is it dripping?
YES, RIGHT INTO THE TOILET!
The brown drips have turned the water brown in the toilet!
If you are going to have a roof leak, THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT!
Wake up Flippers! THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT!
I proclaim this technique to be a Best Practice!
My recommendation: so often things I find in Flipper houses are disasters. And while this house was indeed that in so many ways, somehow, SOMEHOW, this Flipper created a very obedient and wonderfully polite roof leak. Cudos! I bow, in obeisance, respect and honor! Oh, the bath vent didn't work ... surprisingly!
