Sell a gun?.... hand wash dishes from now on?... hmmm

What's the problem?

Buy her a different kind of water filler...


Serious answer... DIY.


Do what, myself? Wash? Been.

Finally found an old/new stock part. on order.

If it has a valve. Valve breaks. You can't find a new valve. (Yes, I know you have now. I'm just answering the question. :bigsmile: )

Replace the valve with some other kind of valve. DIY means figure out a way to make something else work.

Cut out the old one, and figure out a way to solder in something new that you can hook a different kind of valve to. That sort of thing...


Holy... must think I'm smart or something! I only just recently figured out how to use a multi-meter to test continuity.

Jeff's right. An intake solenoid valve from nearly any dishwasher or washing machine would work. As long as you match up the plumbing fittings which are pretty universal, hook up the 2 wires to the ones on the machine and you're golden.

I might have one laying around out in my garage. Want me to go look?

I could care less how thin it is. It's the ones that fight back that piss me off. You know you're in trouble when you open the door, and there is a pile of little scraps on the ground.

I'm thinking...they're thinking that the thin will work in 90% of applications.

A Shart..?

Amen.

What is the possible cost savings given that people literally just use 2 - 3x as much? It's so aggravating that it is so thin it just tears every few panels.

Similar pet peeve. What about electronic paper towel dispensers that dispense single, short sheets too small to actually dry your hands. Then make you wait 15-20 seconds for the next sheet to dispense :cussing:

Pro tip for slow/stingy towel dispensers. After drying fingertips on the first sheet...

Give the next sheet a quick, light, even tug on both sides simultaneously. Not all, but most will immediately reset and shit out another sheet without the timed reset. It takes a little practice to get it right, but after that you'll rarely be stuck waiting.

Turned out OK. The guy came from Covington. People wanted to come from Spokane. People from B-ham, M-ville, places south I never heard of, Yakima. WTF????? No lady I am not gonna give you a break because you have to pay for child care to LOOK at a car. A couple guys, 100% Spanish language. I don't care but mostonly Eng speakers would not have replied. I know enough. And no I am not negotiating before you arrive. No I won't take $1500 for a very clean, perfectly maintained, smooth running van with under 150K asking $2500. No, not $2000. $2500.

ONE guy showed up with his BIL. Had a family. Just arrived. Since he showed, wanted the van. I let it go $2300.

How can I help you, and/or make you smile, today?

The problem with being on social media, is that you know too many people that you don't know.

Joy is not a feeling. It is a strength. Some people are stupid, that's all there is to it. (And sometimes that stupid person is me/you.) Sometimes you just have to let stupid people be stupid. Don't let stupid steal your joy.

Holding onto unforgiveness and resentment is like drinking poison and expecting that other person to die. Anger will eat you up.
