On those valves...

@ January 15, 2014 5:30 PM in Water hammer noise after new gas boiler installed

The wiring or terminals are on the inlet side on of the valve body. It appears the black circ.(on return)is pulling water from the wrong port of the ZV.

Hi Gary

Are you sure the zone valves are pointing in the right direction?

Hi- Sorry for lack detail

@ January 15, 2014 2:05 PM in Pex in electrcal conduit

Here is all I want to do. From the outside of the house drill a hole that ends up in the joist space of the interior. Then slide a EMT until it hits some solid blocking. Then cut the smallest hole , in the sheetrock, just to get an angle drill and bit into. Then start pushing through the EMT. Then move on to the next piece of blocking. until I get to the other end of the house.Then finish off the EMT ends with a connector and plastic bushing and in goes the pex.
The EMT is for support in instead of staples. I would gladly drop 60 bucks for EMT instead of some serious sheetrock work. It's somethig I've never done or seen. I'm aware of Pex growing as it gets hot. There will plent of slack.
It seems harmless to me.But just curios as to any warnings
P.S. it's 3/4 going into 1 inch EMT

Pex in electrcal conduit

I have a project where I want to minimize drywall patching.I'm thinking of running EMT just as I would for wires, but instead put Pex in it. This would save me supporting the tube every couple feet and much more drywall repair. Seems to me it's okay, Um, is it okay?

I wondered about the Pic.

Could the cocktail next door to those steaks be implicated??:)

About Matthew

@ January 13, 2014 12:54 AM in Does anyone have any contacts w/ NY METS org? Mad Dog

I don't have any contacts with the Mets. What I do know is all MLB teams have a staff that deals in just what Matthew needs.
My suggestion is to get on the Mets website, click on community,click on Mets foundation, scroll to contact, and then send feedback.
Now don't be shy. I read the paper. This is horrible.
I would be shocked if the Mets didn't respond.
Good for you Matt! (both of you)

On the other hand

@ January 11, 2014 3:35 AM in How do i get this down

The bank let the sale go through because an old asbestos ridden boiler is sitting there minding it's own bussiness. That's fine. Once things start getting moved around everyone gets excited. To the OP, just keep things quiet and safe and nobody will be harmed. Dispose of properly.

I'm with Alan on that one.
The most novel idea of removing an old huge chuck of C.I. was to dig a hole in the basement and bury the thing. That house had to have been built around it.
Talk about contrast. Now let's toss a couple of these Mod/Cons here up on the wall here:)

My first thought...

@ December 31, 2013 12:49 PM in Replacement Taco 007 F5 suddenly buzzing

Hi Red- Is the cold fill pressure high enough? The pump could be cavitating itself to death.

But I'm wondering...

@ December 27, 2013 2:59 AM in Lp ga oven stopped baking.

Just how did the pie or cake turn out:)?

that's exactly what he does.

@ December 17, 2013 9:47 AM in Math quiz at end of first post after login...

I'm certain he, is right now, sitting at his desk, with his scientific calculator, figuring out the complexities of say, 2 plus 1 equals 3:)!!

My take on it is ...

@ December 12, 2013 8:46 PM in What is the definition of

that the term Make up air is air forced into (Fan) say a commercial kitchen, to compensate for the huge airflow through those huge range hoods. This as opposed to the term, combustion air (Just a hole in the building).

The Pics.

Frank, has anyone ever told you look like Neil Young? Now Gordo looks like someone off the food network with the apron:) Keep up the good work!

Actually it's sick

Here is yet another horrible example of how people trivialize guns.

The way I see it is this...

@ December 2, 2013 5:24 AM in Slow leak at joint (picture)

I think we all should fly into this guys town, be picked up, and go over and fix it. All expense paid :) Of course RFB!


@ November 27, 2013 10:49 PM in Boiler T&P valve drips

Oh yea, that's the last words spoken to a Jewish turkey before it's executed and thrown in the oven;)
Now in keeping with the site topic, has anyone ever done a CO reading next to a Menorah?
Also, here is the hot tip, it's Green Bay minus 6.
Now go eat everything in sight! Happy Everything!

@ November 26, 2013 12:31 PM in Effluent lift station

would let the flapper thingy lay flat and make the valve pointless-no?

Effluent lift station

@ November 22, 2013 1:53 AM in Effluent lift station

Can someone offer some tips on making a lift station pump not go bang when it stops.

Imagine that

The length of 3 football feilds of tubing with an i.d. the size of a pencil. Also its an open system.Yikes!
Just curios Alaskan, just where in AK is this? I feel real bad for you.

Walking through those boats is awesome. The name thing is a bit odd to me. When do we get the Richard Nixon:)?

Yeah, it's a trip!
