  • Buyer Beware

    You gotta know what you're doing with Craig's List and the other online listings and auction sites. As an example look at this ad recently posted on CL in the Philly area.

    I never knew Ridgid made a 3HP version of the TS-2424.
    "When we build let us think we build forever. Let it not be for present delight nor for present use alone. Let it be such work that our descendants will thank us for, and let us think, as we lay stone upon stone, that a time is to come when these stones will be held sacred because our hands have touched them, and that men will say, as they look upon the labor and wrought substance of them, "See! This our fathers did for us."
    John Ruskin (1819 - 1900)

    I believe they used the Sears HP rating system.

      Or the big box store's rating. All the Water Ace Sump and Sewage pumps are made by Myers (Pentair) and their horsepower ratings are always one notch above the Myers variety for the same exact pump... Well, maybe not exact, I'm sure they left something out to make it cheaper.
