What's the littlest or cheapest break/failure that has caused the biggest pain in your ares or most expensive fix?
Friday afternoon, I caught a glimpse of some standing water on the backside of my tank. Found a tiny leak coming from my HOB. After uncoupling the box from the plumbing, the bulkhead leaving the bottom of the box was broken - my guess is from me wiggling the standpipe back and forth to get it out every now and then.
This is probably a $3 part, if I can find one (have an email in to Eshopps, so hopefully I hear back on Monday morning). If not, it's an $80 replacement, plus another $20+ in plumbing. And more like $150 total if I upgraded to what I really should have on there and plumbed it up correctly.
But the price really isn't the biggest pita: The other overflow can't handle the flow on it's own, even w/ my return pump cranked down as far as possible. That means I have to manually go over to the tank and plug in my return to get display>sump flow going, watch/wait for the water to come up to the display rim, and then unplug the return. Rinse/repeat.
There have to be some that will beat that, and misery loves company, so please trump my broken $3 part!
