14 days is our college homecoming. I dont even know if they are going to allow the bus into the tailgate lot haha.
We tore all the wiring guts out of the hot tub and removed the control box from it. We just had to replumb the pump and heater back into the system. They are gonna be hardwired to switches on the wall for now.
Were having a lot of trouble with our plumbing leaking, well more like squirting out. We started with thread tape and then found that wasn't enough, which we had already guessed. Then we used pipe dope and that slowed down the leaks. We just put epoxy over the leaking fittings and that worked great for the heater but it is still squirting out of small holes in the epoxy by the pump. I was gonna go pick up some more epoxy to get a better seal but a quick google searched brought me to something called Plast-Aid. Never heard of it before but apparently its the bees knees when it comes to fixing leaky PVC fittings, chemically bonds to the PVC to make a stronger connection than the PVC itself or something of that nature.
Running out to lowes and hoping they have it now.
Painting the interior a gloss back later tonight. The bus is trashed with tools laying all over the place, insulation, trash, beer cans
, etc. Gotta clean that up and finish masking and taping as well. Gonna be a busy night.
But on a good note, we did take the bus out for a trip to Ace Hardware the other day. We even brought my buddies puppies with us. Everyone loved the puppies (obviously) and the bus idea too. We are now known as the "Hot Tub Bus" guys there. We even gave a little old lady a tour of it even though its got nothing in it but a futon and the shell of a hot tub haha.
