Drip drip

It was only in June when we put our new air con unit in. It should have lasted longer. 'My dearest, water appears to be running down the wall. I wonder why?'

I eventually rigged up just the red mop bucket in the perfect position to catch the drips. It dripped about a litre of water in three hours, and it wasn't working that hard.

Call to where we bought it, not our problem, faulty installation. Call installer. After one cancelled time to come, he did eventually, and rectified the problem just as described on a DIY You Tube video. If it wasn't under warranty, I would have fixed it myself, especially as the unit in the YT vid was the same make as ours. The guy in the You Tube vid is just brilliant. In our case, it was a poor connection where the drain pipes meet in the unit and it just needed to be properly sealed, rather than a blockage. I think the installers apprentice may have not done what he was supposed to.

  1. How brilliant! By the way, not all Singaporeans speak with such an accent. The guy narrating the YouTube video sounds like one of those.voice talents who do radio.ads.

    1. Certainly needed it this past week River. We try to limit our usage of it, but how nice it is to come home to the cool after being out in the heat.

  4. Great that they fixed it, but irritating that it needed fixing in the first place - probably due to negligence - and the hassle is all yours! At least the YT vid was some small compensation?!?!?!
