Anyone eles in this flood thing around the states? Not a big deal to me, we shall just be pulling toilets and so on, and plugging them next week. :O

According to Cherne if that is what you going to plug them with, you best hope the back pressure on the line your plugging does not exceed 17 psi or they won't hold.

Oh and 2000 plugs will only weigh 1000 lbs. at .5 lbs each.

Or having a ton of plugs as in the quantity then you have 4000 plugs.

That is a hell of allot of toilets your pulling to plug those line. Good Luck your going to be working 24 hrs a day to do that many toilets.

Just wedge 'em down from the cieling with a 2" x 4". A little dimple in the drywall will pale in comparison to the other dammage.
Better stock up. Sounds like there's going to be a run on closet bolts and wax rings too.

The Red River is at 39.27 feet right now, the dikes are at 43 right now. So we are not doing well, keep up the jokes eh?

Helgore, you come on this site with all the attitude in the world then get uptite over some good natured ribbing. Stop the tears, you don't want to add to the flood.

The reason you are being ribbed has nothing to do with the flood.

We sympathize with those who have fallen in danger of a possible levee breach or over-topping.

You come on here acting like an asshat. Then folks bite back at you and all of a sudden folks are picking on the poor flood victim.
