Maintenance!

After work I went to the youngest's kindergarten to do some maintenance.

We needed to replace the insulation on all the pipes.  It was originally put in when the place was built about 12 years ago.  One of the dads who is in construction got some type of new pipe sleeve free.   Four of us replaced the insulation on both the hot and cold water pipes.

At one point we needed to rip away part of the outside wall, but it was fairly easy to replace.  My hands are still a bit numb.  We were done fairly quick.

It was supposed to happen this weekend, but two of the dads have to go do company stuff.  Seeing as its been damned cold the last few days, we decided that waiting longer would be a bad idea.

The insulation that was there wasn't in bad shape.  The new stuff is supposed to be very helpful for the hot water especially.

Apparently it will save the kindergarten a bunch of cash on the gas bill.

I'm just happy that we don't need to get at the ondol.

That is beyond our DIY capabilities me thinks.
