    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.

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

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

    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.

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

    It's supposed to be up in the teens tomorrow -- even the wind chill is supposed to be above zero by a degree or two -- so I might go out for grouse and cottontails for a couple hours in the afternoon. After that, smooth sailing for a while, temperatures in the high twenties, thirties, and a couple days that are supposed to even hit forty.

    No cabin fever for me. We only received about an inch of snow on Christmas Eve, so other than the cold there's nothing keeping me inside and it hasn't been very effective. In between feeding cows, cutting wood, and putting cows back where they belong I've been staying relatively busy.
    We're on a warming trend this weekend, with today being the first day we've been above freezing since Dec 21, and daytime highs should be up into the 40's and 50's midweek.
    Tomorrow could be interesting as there's rain in the forecast for the morning, with temperatures in the low to mid twenties.

    Also, this is the time I clean all my firearms, even if I have not used them. I do 1 or 2 a day. After this, they get a cleaning again in July.
    Jist placed an order with Brownells for some cleaning supplies and I also bought some 9mm protection rounds. I am going with 147gr HP by SIG. On sale right now for $14.00 and free shipping if order over $50.
    Smart man jimbo with the 147gr 9mm round.
