» Monday, April 10, 2006Curses...Foiled for the First Time
So I finished working in the garagecheck out Autumn Hollowand decided it was time to try out the jetted tub. So I filled it with nice hot water, eased in, pressed the button to turn on the jets...
...and nothing happened.
I remembered after I was fully immersed that after Dan (the building inspector) tested out the tub, he shut it off (there's a switch underneath) and put the cover panel back on. This was to keep the activation button from being pushed accidentally while we were moving in, since if you turn the jets on with no water in the tub it can burn them out. Never remembered to turn the switch on again.
It wasn't worth getting out of the tub and hunting up a Phillips screwdriver to take the panel off and then put it back on again, so I just "chilled" figuratively in the bath for a few minutes while the ibuprofin got to work.
But it was pretty disappointing. :-)
