Life as a New Owner of an Old Home

My kitchen sink faucet leaked when I lifted the lever to the right to pour water.¬†A small amount of water¬†streamed out and down the faucet neck. I didn’t think it was a big deal, but would be nice to have working properly. My HVAC / Plumber guy Eric picked up his check for another job yesterday and I asked him to take a look at it. He pulled the faucet apart and showed me where the metal had corroded in the faucet neck causing the leak. Next he crawled under the sink and pulled more of the contraption apart… except he evidently could not figure out how to get it back together again. He told me I need to buy a new faucet / spray / level combo. These turned out to be quite hard to find online, but at last one showed up on Amazon for around $120. The only other options were $300! Eric didn’t tell me what he was going to charge, but I am sure that will be another hundred or so. I am not even sure how well this new faucet will match the rest of the sink and kitchen. I guess I will see when it arrives in a couple of days. For now, we cannot use our kitchen sink, so the dishes are piling up. Lovely.
