I Might Need More Depends

My oil company is here doing their annual furnace cleaning. No sooner did he start when I heard a “Hello, hello”, summoning me into to the furnace room. Alas, there on the floor, a puddle of water under the expansion tank. The word: your bladder is gone. I had so many one-liners to respond but I kept it professional. That was really hard for me when my instinct was to make an old lady joke. 🙂


Anyway, the expansion tank is shot, easier to replace than repair, he said. It’s almost 12 years old so it doesn’t seem illogical that it’s spent. 

Oh well, better a new expansion tank than hearing my ancient furnace is dead. Fingers and toes crossed there.
