Our Pipes Broke Now What !

January 23, 2020 100 By William Morgan


on Thursday okay so I’m gonna have to go
back a little bit and tell you a little bit what happened so for the last couple
of months we had a leak under our trailer and then the sounded very small
but over the last couple weeks of course that got really larger it sounded really
bad so finally on Thursday we had somebody that came out crawled under the
trailer took a look at it and was able to fix it
five hundred bucks later it was fixed but what happened was because now we
have better water pressure another leak so this leak is in the upper part of our
house so it’s not under the trailer but all weekend now I don’t have any water
because we had to turn the water off because of the leak and on Monday we’ll
get the same guy out to fix it he looked under the trailer and he said everything
else looked okay with our water lines so with our cold water lines everything was
great but now above who we had this leak and I wasn’t gonna do a video and I
thought hey why not because in life things like this happen so what am I
gonna do for three days without any running water so I’m gonna share with
you some of the things that I am doing in case you’re ever under this situation
you know we always talk about prevention and we always talk about emergencies in
life and here is an emergency you know the first thought is to panic oh my word
what am I gonna do what am I gonna do what am I gonna do I have no water then
you start realizing okay what can I do as you know we had a lot of snow but you
know what these two days it’s 60 degrees we don’t have the snow but last night
before all of it melted with gathering up snow so I would have water I want to
share with you just ways that you if you’re an emergency like me that you’ll
be okay you can stay calm and not get excited we
could have a plumber out today but then the cost would be enormous because it
would be considered an emergency and it’s okay
I can go a couple days without running water I mean think about it think about
countries like Venezuela where they don’t even have electric on a daily
basis and water come on a lot of people gone weeks and
weeks without any water so this video is just going to share with you the real
life of when you don’t have any running water Thanks all right I just want to
show you all that I really don’t have running water tada
there’s no running water we turned the pump off so now water is a precious commodity people
precious we can’t waste a drop of it now and that’s literally we can’t waste a
drop of it so I washed my hair last night with cold water right before I had
to turn the pump off and so we have these days without it so my hair is okay
if I had to I cook it down and get a shower at my daughter’s but you know
what we’re gonna rough it up a little bit and see what’s it really like mm-hmm
so let me go outside and show you what I was doing so I was collecting this water
some of it has snow in it yet so I was collecting all this water and this is
what we’ll use to boil to wash dishes and so this will give me enough of water
to last me quite a while so I’ll bring this in the house and I’ll use it as I
need it now if it be the summertime I wouldn’t mind it so much because I would
have rain barrels well it’s just too cold to have rain barrels right now even
though it’s like 60 degrees but next week they say it’s supposed to get down
into the tens and twenties so getting have rain barrels but you find a way you
always find a way this another reason why I always tell
you it’s so important to have buckets always have buckets on hand because you
never know when you’re gonna need them right now we need a lot of buckets
because I’ll show you how I’m collecting some of my water I’m standing at my well
and what happens is since all the snow melted this well fills up with water and
then it comes out here but guess what I put my buckets here and look I’m
collecting all this water so this is great so now I can use this water for
dishes and all kinds of things so I’m gonna go ahead and get another bucket
because we can have this water to use for dishes this is clean water that came
in the well that was overflowing so I gotta hurry up and get another bucket
here and collect this water all right I’m not too excited because I have my
berkey water filter and I can use that as well
so having some filter water is great on hand because we can use this to cook
with so I’m set with having this so we have water to do a dishes we have water
to cook with and water to flush the toilets and that we have our own well
and being that we have our own sewer I’m able to do all these things so now we’re
left is washing your hair bathing and so you can give yourself a sponge bath and
really clean yourself Wow in fact that’s what they did for centuries and washing
your hair that’s easy too and I’ll show you how I wash my hair when we don’t
even have any running water how is that going to work you know what things like
these happen to anybody no matter where you live and a lot of times people get
so excited and they panic you don’t need to panic you just got to think a little
bit so you gotta think okay how do we work around this problem and so and
having some things in case of emergency ahead of time is the key my friends is
the key for beverages but we’re gonna use this to wash your hands and things
now this was what the water that was collected from the pump that was
draining out of our well which are wellis bugs when we have a lot of snow
that’s smelling so it comes out of that sump pump so we’re gonna go put this in
the bathroom and this one’s in kitchen perfect people perfect you guys
are gonna find me rather silly but I want to share with you how you wash your
hair if you don’t have running water these things can happen to all of us no
matter where we live sometimes we don’t have water because we need to get our
pipes fixed so I’m gonna share with you what we do so we took the snow and we
melted it and now we heated it on the stove that’s why having things like this
help you out so what we’re gonna do is we’re just gonna put all over here in
front of us like this then we’re gonna take our water now if you have someone
to help you that’s even better because this is heavy to lift with one hand but
I have done this many times alright so now we just had a little water enough to
make our hair wet now we’re going to use a little bit of shampoo and now we’re going to take the rest of
our water and rinse it and it’s just as easy as that if you
want to make it easier if you don’t wear a shirt and just have your bra on that
makes it a lot easier because then you don’t have a shirt getting wet but it
really is easy to do it doesn’t take long at all and to give a sponge bath
it’s the same basically thing we’re gonna put warm water into a basin and
you work with your face and you work your way down and so I hope you enjoyed
this as you know it can be very stressful when things in our house don’t
work but you know what we try to make the best of it and try to make it as
pleasant as we can and you know what there’s always somebody who has a little
bit worse than us take care of I will see you guys tomorrow hey wait a minute
if you guys like videos like these just wait a second have you seen the videos
below that’s where I get to share with you all of my life in my vlogs and all
the things that I do here on the homestead take a look at these videos I
think you’ll enjoy them as well
