Oh dear – more water ingress in our Training Hall area. 😦
This time, it’s the wall of our equipment store area which leads to the main doors of the church hall.
I came in to find that the entire floor area was a pool of water and the water had flowed under the doors and into the hall room, under the training mats.
The problem was, I couldn’t find the source.
Initially, I thought it was seeping up from under the floor but a check of the external wall didn’t reveal the problem. But I did notice that the flat roof above the entrance area had a drain pipe which went inside the wall – could this be what was causing the leak?
I had to rip off a piece of the hardboard wall covering to reveal the down pipe and sure enough I had discovered the leak source – or sources a it turned out.
There was a pipe which seemed to be blocked as water was flowing down the connection with the U-bend – but there was also water flowing down the wall signifying another leak probably on the flat roof.
For the time being, I’ve caught the water in a bucket until builder extraordinaire Paul Marchetti can come fix it…..which may be some time as i got this photo from him –
Apparently Paul broke is leg in a number of places when a heavy pallet being unloaded from a lorry fell on top of him on another job.
Get well soon Paul
