Today was the day the plumbers came out to do leak detection for all the damage we incurred due to water. I told them we suspected it was the dishwasher and all the reasons we thought that. After they explained what they would do they got to work. They were pressure testing the lines inside the house and from the house to the meter. Their reading indicated a slow leak somewhere in our lines. They would have to determine where that was by tearing into the walls etc. and then they would reroute any lines needed. It was only on the cold side they were getting these readings.
As they were getting all their equipment ready to go they hooked up their pressure meter again and could not detect any leak. They tested several more times and then tested from the house to the meter. Everything looked good as far as any potential slab leak. They then checked the dishwasher and bingo. So we avoided a major issue of relocating water lines to our attic. They have seen this happen before with air in the lines. Their work also revealed a couple other problems. My pressure relief valve (PRV) is faulty, I am getting 90 lbs. It starts out at 72 lbs and creeps up to 90. Also the water cutoff line to the dishwasher isn't up to code so that will have to be replaced before the new dishwasher can be installed. I have them scheduled to come out for that work next Monday.
Monday will also see the Restoration company the insurance is having prepare an estimate to repair/replace all the damaged flooring, walls and portions of our cabinets. Even though insurance is picking up the tab for everything outside my deductible, it is still going to cost me some serious cash. New Dishwasher and installation along with the plumbing I mentioned above we are going to shell out a chunk. Plumbers are not cheap and have you seen the price of dishwashers?
At least not having to reroute water lines eased my chest pains lol.
Colonoscopy went well. Waiting on a lab report for one polyp.
