Clothes washer is home alone

Posted by ChrisR on December 24th, 1998 07:57 AM

Did anyone see the DATELINE segment on TV a few nights
ago about the clothes washer? I guess some family was
on vacation in Hawaii for a few weeks and during that
time, a water hose burst. Water spewed out at a rate
of 3 gallons a minute for several days.

To make matters even worse, the washing machine was
upstairs, not in the basement. Total damage? $170,000.
Since my hoses were five years old, I replaced them
the very next day!

Oh, and before going on vacation, turn the water off to
the clothes washer...
