Our fix worked.

Unfortunately, we have to blow a solid cave formation's worth of sediment out of our lines.

And probably replace our toilet inflow stuff.

Positive progress. Toilet replacement stuff is $25. I'm able to run the dishwasher. The toilets are refilling, if slowly. Maybe tomorrow we can shower.

Hell yes!

Where did you end up finding epoxy?

plumbing 

@RussSharek eh, we managed to get epoxy at home despot, but it didn't set right, twice.

Richard (eldest son) had a length of PVC, and his partner, Allison, works at Lowe's. They're out of CPVC fittings, but had PVC.

So we fixed it for really real.

@thraeryn

better than a hack or a patch I suspect.

plumbing 

@RussSharek Yeah, it's actually fixed. It should be good.

We're still mystified at the JB Weld not setting correctly. Gave it a BUNCH of cure time. Should've been like steel; was instead like hard rubber. Don't even know what's up there.
