I'm done canning for the day. Ask me anything..........

I canned 4 quarts of zucchini in tomato sauce.
I also canned 4 quarts of zucchini dill spears. (think zucchini pickles).
I also checked the sauerkraut I started fermenting the other day, and it's delicious. I'll separate it into smaller jars tomorrow & give my brothers and a couple of neighbors a jar.

Between the food bank & a program called Produce to People, I had five 4-5 lb. zucchinis and 4 heads of cabbage. I'm not going to waste it. I have made 2 loaves of zucchini bread. I have 2 zucchinis left. I'm going to put it through the food processor, freeze it and make bread later this year.

Pumbing question

I cross posted this in DIY-Home Improvements.

This evening in the bathroom the hot water faucet flew off its base & of course water went everywhere including to the condo unit downstairs.

I was not home, my 84 year old mother was. She was asleep in her bedroom when she heard an explosion and then water gushing everywhere. She called a neighbor who called maintenance, who got it cleaned up.

My question is, what would cause this to explode off its base. I think either too much water pressure, or possibly something else building up pressure.

I am looking for possible answers, because my maintenance fees pay for water and the maintenance of common elements which are the pipes. I want to at least sound knowledgeable when I meet with maintenance on Monday. I don't want to have my insurance company pay for something I'm not responsible for.
