See what I did there lol
I've seen one of those and have been checking it out, not as much activity as here but I've learned a lot. It's a great community too, everyone seems to actually like each other.

Fresh or salt is a trade secret.
Kind of like getting a cordless solder spreader from the supply house and putting flux in your coffee.

You must be a house plumber. Because I don't know any customer in a commercial building who would attempt to do a repair of a professional.

But thanks for your input gramps

I concur.

You younger men should listen to the advice and counsel of us older more experienced plumbers. You guys just might learn something. Experience is a wonderful teacher.

I tell the same thing to my {18} yr. old daughter and {17} yr. old son. Deep down they know dad is correct. It's just youthful pride that won't let them admit it. Some people just have to learn the hard way. Oh well, carry on.

Words of wisdom! My 8y/o (going on 15) knows everything. Mr. & Mrs. OpenSights know nothing about anything.

I am man enough to say he has helped me figure something out on tablet more than once.

I've been participating a little, my post count is 19. You probably haven't seen them since they were mostly about forced air heating. I kind of lay back on a new forum to get the feel of it before posting.
