You guys have it so easy! Pipes in exterior walls, in attics or even outside. Then you guys have drain clean outs in the front yard! You don't really care about making a mess on the lawn and if the cable gets stuck all you have to do is dig 2 feet? OH my G.O.D!

I concur with Tango, you guys have it easy. Except for the balancing heat most of the year (over 70 is too warm for me).

Here in NC water service is min 12in. Pipe insulation in garages and attics. Not needed in crawl spaces though.

Not too bad.

You have 3 days to post a proper intro because it reads like a spam.
