Not really, my husband and I bought this house together. Then he passed away unexpectedly and had no life insurance. I'm just trying to keep it together, so thanks for that.

So sorry to hear of husbands passing. My sympathies. I can't think of anything much worse than losing my wife. This is not a big repair for a plumber. You might check around. Even a decent handyman with plumbing experience could do this. I emphasize the word DECENT. I would check with friends neighbors etc.

Put the word out at your church. Usually a lot of retirees with experience willing to help out a lady in distress.

Re: Major leak under my kitchen sink


This is a one to two hour job----so a service call might do it---I don't know whe rates in your area, so call and ask.

As a temporary fix, try cleaning up the rust and packing the hole with 'JB Weld'

That might buy you some time---

Re: Major leak under my kitchen sink


A good friend hit a stretch of tough times---I dropped into a Salvation Army office and was pleased to find that they had a long list of service providers that worked at a huge discount or even free----they are a good group of folks there.

He was to proud to go himself--but was most pleased to see a doctor for the first time in years---thanks to the helpful gal at the Salvation Army.

It still makes me want to throw up and cry, but I'm so grateful for the very kind and helpful people who have given me some suggestions. I really appreciate it and I thank you all very much.

I didn't think that I was trying to solicit business here. That's what the yellow pages are for. I'm checking with them and some of the other places below to see if I can get a free quote. If there is someone here that is in charge, please feel free to just delete this entire thread. I'm sorry. Thank you again to those who were helpful. I'm only able to use my mobile and I'm doing the best that I can.

Re: Major leak under my kitchen sink


Find the "ignore" feature of the site and use it. It works very well except quotes do tag along to be quickly passed by. Stay with us.

I'm glad you came and hope you noticed that most of us are just ordinary folks trying to be helpful when we can.

Re: Major leak under my kitchen sink


Today we have met two interesting people--Urmy who is trying to find a simple solution to a problem---exactly why this site exists and why most of us enjoy the place.

It makes my day when I can help.

The other person? Unfortunately , came for other reasons----

I'll never figure out people so I leave the unpleasant ones behind.--Mike---

since you still want to keep an issue going, then ill give you food for thought..whats the difference why the op is asking, what does being a poor widow have todo with getting answers on a DIY forum, would she get different answers if those circumstances where different? why put your private business out there then? if you want further you can PM me...

Re: Major leak under my kitchen sink


You asked--she is honest and answered--

Why you asked such a personal question of a new member is a mystery, but you did.
