        No cabin fever here.
        I been going non stop on freeze ups on water pipes. It amazing what you can thaw out with a hand held electric hair dryer or a small Bernzomatic torch. ?
        I got so many calls I even passed a few over to my friend.
        I love when it gets down to zero. ?
        I need the money for my out-of-state Canadian bear hunt this year. ?

          Is it true water heaters fail most during a freeze/thaw ? Someone at H-D told me that.

              Tree, customers not having water working in their house can cause a major panic. ?
              When I walk up to their front door, these same folks in need, have a smile from ear to ear.
              If you asked them if it was worth it. They would say "yes every penny."
              BTW, the idiot contractors who install the pipes in the freezing cold outside wall caused the problem.
              I never install pipes in an outside wall unless, I have fiberglass insulation between the pipes and the wall.
              I also put armor flex pipe covering around the pipes. You could even install the pipes up from the floor, instead of the back wall.
              Handymen and fix-it guys do not think about the weather dropping down to zero, and a strong wind blowing against the outside wall.

              Jimbo, water heaters last from 13 to 15 years. Here is a tip to make your water heater last 6 to 8 years longer.
              Once a year, get a bucket and open the bottom drain valve on the water heater removing a gallon of water.
              Rust builds up on the bottom of the WH over the years causing them to leak. Most people do not do that and when you drain their WH after 14 years a dark brown rusty water will empty out from the bottom.
              Here is a Denver plumbing link for you, on cold weather and water heaters.

                The second half of your post confused me, until I remembered your a plumber.

                  Henry, workers on construction sites call electricians "Sparky".
                  You what they call plumbers? "Turd Divers" ?

                    Old thread but I am curious how it all ended.
                    I personally am a very pretentious person and for this reason, I took a conditioner so that when it is too hot or cold, it saves me.
                    Recently it broke down and I had to turn to socool.sg and they helped me a lot.
                    I don't know what to do if I didn't find a good company to fix it. It is essential for me to always have a conditioner.
