  1. Those seem like big holes to me. If the holes are clogged, the gravel won't get in the pit. If the holes are clear, you're predicting some very dramatic erosion. Seems like a stretch. If the holes are low, it'll take in more water - that should be good for the floor. I think sump pumps are made to run continously for some time. The cold water is all around it and running through it. That should keep it cool, yes? That said, I'm not sure how the height of the holes, relative to the float, will have a significant effect here. When I see something out of my comfort zone I usually start thinking of sky-is-falling worst-case scenarios. Take a step back. If you're confident what you're seeing is a problem, pursue it or do more research.
  2. I've never played with this light, but I have a lot of experience with other Streamlight products. Unbelievable durability.
  3. Every time I see some of the good stuff, I think, "Aahhh. Job security."
  4. It's a very interesting job opportunity. Sure, it might need patching, but with what? And, by whom? If anybody touches this thing that isn't an expert, they'll likely do more harm than good.
  5. Thanks to you both. It'll be my sister making the decisions - she has a contract on a house there. I'll pass on both sets of info, along with any others posted here. Thanks again. Happy New Year to all.
  6. Hey, all. I'm looking for a good inspector to work in Mendham, New Jersey on a 1973 house. Help!
  7. Damn indeed. Mike Royko would've had lots of great material for the next seven years.
  8. Reminds me of a conversation I had with a man bragging about his new trailer home (his words, not mine). "It's got two fireplaces! You open the front door and you're lookin right at a fireplace. I'm tellin you: it just reeks of class." Later in the same conversation he told me about how great it is to file for bankrupcty. He was on his third.
  9. I'm looking for a good inspector to work in the Kenosha/Racine, Wisconsin area. I don't think Wisconsin welcomes Illinois inspectors - correct me if I'm wrong on that.
  10. Maybe too late by now... I'd be concerned about lateral support and proper load bearing.
  11. Kurt's on track. If I had a paragraph like that for every small problem I found, two things would happen: 1. My reports would be about 60 pages long, 2. My clients wouldn't read the reports and, therefore, wouldn't benefit at all from my service. Brevity good.

    Watts TPR

    Can anyone tell me about the quality of the Watts fusible plug TPR valve? Does it have a good service record?
