Not everything we fix around here is exciting. The bracket for this down pipe used to fall down the beam when the fat possums used to run up and down it. Given the pipes had not been glued this made everything come adrift, not great for catching water. New and improved made with another upright support in the middle of the pipe. This is now welded in place and the pipes have been glued.
This is a very bad photo of one of the fat possums in question. I was inside the kitchen and this fellow sat on the hot water system to peer in and say hello.
