Update: Well, the plumber has come and gone and it took him all of 15 min to fix the problem. I don't think the price will be too bad either. He said we'll figure it out later, and he is super cool and gave us a great price for all the other work that he is going to be doing in the next 2 months.
He is my hero.
Of course, I thought it was going to be much worse, b/c when hubby was 'pretending' to be a plumber before he got here it sprung a leak and was dripping even faster. Why do men think they can really do everything? At least he has NO aspirations to be an electrician! haha
