Our Favorite New Invention

Plumbing is not Chris' favorite thing to do - that's an understatement. He really, really doesn't like doing plumbing, so you can imagine that he wasn't too excited about that portion of this bathroom remodel. Much to his delight, there has been progress in plumbing supplies since his last plumbing project and we are SO excited we just have to share it with you all.

Shark Bite plumbing connectors! Instead of soldering or glueing connections you just push them together and, PRESTO, you have a perfect seal! I kid you not, he has put in many of these over the past week and not once has he had even the slightest leak AND it only takes about 60 seconds to make the connection. Whatever they say about themselves on the link above, it's all true!

They should pay me to advertise for them. I love these things! Heck, even I could do plumbing with these things it's so easy! Next time you have a plumbing job you're going to thank me. you may even kiss my feet, you'll be so grateful.


  1. Barb, I wonder if your dad knows about these wonders. He also hates plumbing but will do it while complaining. Mom

  2. Barb: thanks tons for the insight! Now I, too, can accomplish what would be impossible without.


Thanks for visiting. We would love to hear from you!
