sorry, Pete-zza for the delay. We had some excitement over here in the night from Friday to Saturday. In our bathroom a corner valve just popped off sending the valve head flying thru the room. Luckily, I am a light sleeper and heard something abnormal and woke up from it.
At first, I hesitated to enter the bathroom due to the strange noise coming from within (it had no resemblance with anything I had personally heard before...it didn't sound like water
). When I finally opened the door, I was greeted by something similar to Niagra Falls!
You'd be surprised at how much water can be pressed thru a small opening in a miniature valve when the pressure is high enough ! Since we live in an apartment house on the 4th floor, this was a massively critical situation. While I waded thru the gushing water to turn off the main valve, my wife placed everything we had on towels and bedwash she could find on the floors to hold up the water from trenching the neighbored apartments under ours. The water was 5 fingers high in the bathroom and poured quickly into the adjascent rooms.
We spent 3 hours wringing out the towels over and over and over again.... I'm not the type who uses expletives (I made an exception this time), but this is something I certainly "really needed", just like a hole in my head. Why do things like these happen on the Weekends, where no one from your apartment management can be reached!?
The neighbors under us are not home, I have no idea what happened below us. I'm already wondering what surprises our insurance company has for us when we report the damage tomorrow morning.... (nope sorry mr.Kiefer; see the exclusion paragraph § 3b, on side 24, section 12c, 4th sentence......)

Wait a second, let me get my magnifying glass (12" wide) out and then.....son $%&%#####& !!
It's very late right now here.... near 1am. I need to get some sleep and hope for the best tomorrow. I'll get back you all then. Wish me some luck guys. I need it!!
