For the past week or so, I've needed to mow the yard, but due to the rain, its been too soggy.
Today, i was thinking the yard would be dry enough to mow.....
So last night at some point, the flex hose going from the pump to the sand filter blew off the fitting and the pump proceeded to empty as much water as it could out of the pool (1000-1500 gallons from what i can tell).
I've always eyed that connection and thought "what a stupid place to use flex hose" with the intention of changing it out for hard plumbing when i did my solar install over the next few weekends.
So, there goes my mowing for today. I figure Ill just mow tomorrow.
I go to lowes, pick up the pieces I need for the solar and to hard plumb from the pump to filter, go in the back yard and start working on it.
I also put the hose in the pool to start replacing the lost water.
The reason I am home from work today is because we were taking my son for an MRI. I work on the plumbing up until we go to the MRI at 11am this morning.
I just pulled in the driveway and noticed the street had water all in the gutter. Then it hit me, I forgot to turn the hose off.
Sign, the yard looks like a swamp now. So much for mowing.
Have a laugh at my expense
