Default Where did I put that Duct Tape?

Had a little problem with the water filter for the house. I went to change the filter, when I tried to open the flush valve it wouldn't turn easily, so I decided to give it a little extra elbow torque. That was a mistake.
I turned a little too much and SNAP!, it broke off.

Now there is a hole in the bottom of my filter housing and I have nothing to fix it with and I can't get to the hardware store until tomorrow. But, I need water tonight.

How did I fix it you may wonder.
Well, You might be a redneck if...
You use SuperGlue and a nickel to plug a hole.

That lasted a few hours, enough time for the family to take their showers and stuff.
Then the pressure went away. Uh Oh.

Now I have to figure something else out. I look around for something and can't find anything. I sit and think. What Can I do? Well, if a nickel SuperGlued to the out side of the nipple didn't hold, why not take a Dime and Glue it inside of the fitting so the pressure can push the coin off. Red Neck ingenuity. It should hold until tomorrow when I can go get a replacement filter housing.

I am very impressed. I much prefer Super Glue over duct tape for most of my home repairs. I think it's good for our minds to think creatively like that and solve problems with almost no resources. I'm very impressed, indeed.

It would have been a better repair with a buffalo nickel and mercury dime.
