Garden fix ups

You know its not good when I gotta write a follow up post on a praising post about a product. Well, the disillusion about Mighty Putty has been felt. Here are the circumstances:

So there was a tiny crack in this PVC pipe in a garden and I applied some mighty putty to contain the leak. However, it was observed that Mighty Putty would have worked only if the pipe was a drain pipe or something that is not pressurized water. In our case, it didnt take long until the hole leaked again, though at least not spraying out.

We ended up just changing the whole pipe. It would have been cool to try other solutions I saw online, the most interesting being to apply PVC primer and then PVC cement. The primer would effectively melt the PVC to get it ready to actually bond with the PVC cement so its actually sealed.

Traveling with Groupons !! Good or Bad??

Sounds like a good idea right??

If you know you will be there for a long time and maybe if you BUY when you are at the place you are traveling to...then yes.

But we've learned the hard way to never PRE-BUY Groupons before our trips!

Here are some of the reasons:

  1. Time constraint - if you are unorganized, you might not realize you have to pre-book or the place is unavailable when you are free.
  2. The deal really isn't THAT good if you're not familiar with the place..might be better deals there
  3. Probably not in the prime location - you'll probably have to travel really far - and this is hard to do when you don't know that area well or if you don't have your own transportation.

You maybe saving yourselves a lot of money, but to be frank, you might be just lying to yourself and causing yourselves a lot of stress.
