    we need "good germs" to survive.

    don't get me wrong, i don't tempt destiny, but i'm not phobic about getting sick either.

    speaking of getting sick, do you think that plumbers have a better imune system than the average person?
    I do.
    I got enough disease ridden shloop on me in one day than any other non drain cleaning person will in a life time.And all this for the experience of working with Rick

        And what will "turning the temp all the way up" do to TCO's on alot of FVIR systems. Besides already popping off T&P's. Just a mess waiting to happen.
