Blooming 'eck! (Or: soap isn't the only thing that shouldn't be "bloomed" )

    So i got a call from home to rush home as there was an emergency.
    I get home to discover water has been pi**ing down from the living room ceiling! :angry019:

    I quickly turned off all the water etc and got a bucked and punched a hole in the ceiling to let whatever was left up there to drain out

    So now my plasterboard living room ceiling has been nicely bloomed and has soggy bits in it.

    The bad news is that i had just recently painted it:angry032:

    The good news is that like a puck of @Primotenore 's williams, it should dry out ok. The soggy bits are fixable. I will have to recut and fill the joints but i don't think the boards need to come down. Also, i don't think this is a pipe leak :confused: i suspect that one of the fruit of my loins (who was having a shower at the time of said leak) may have left the shower door open. :rolleyes005:

    I can find no other cause.

    My weekend is going to be busy :mog:
