Insurance column: Do I have to file a flood claim?

Chowderhead Charlie decided to do his Tool Man Taylor imitation and fix the leaking pipe under the sink, which his loving spouse has been complaining about for the past two years. After careful analysis, Charlie decides to re-plumb. After all, he’s an expert with 10 minutes experience. Sure enough, big Charlie discovered he didn’t have the right parts and attempts to force-fit the pvc pipe. He pulls and bends as best he can, and discovers the hard way that pvc pipe will tolerate only so much. I sure wouldn’t do this! Would you do this?
