    They probably had trouble locating Nunya on the map!

      It was outside of Nunya. Two towns away between The GumDrop Mountains and Ice Cream Floats.

        Perhaps they were confused. I thought it was between Candy Cane Forest and Gum Drop Mountain. That must be where King Kandy lives

        Maybe the roadshow will be coming your way. Have you looked it up?

          Yes, it's in Charlotte. Too far. It was a miracle I made to this one. Disappointed as I had some questions.

            Maybe you can post your questions or pm one of the Ridgid guys.

              Did find this there. Another press tool. My advice at this point is DO NOT BUY THE PISTOL/BATTERY ONE. That's the only one they had there, not the others.

              Why? The #!$# thing weighs about 20lbs. . Way too fatiguing in my opinion.

                The newest Ridgid one is about 6 1/2 pounds. The first one was heavier-not sure how much.

                  Sounds like an introduction to Charlie!

                    Also learned:

                    Moen is discontinuing their traditional cartridge. (1225? Can't remember).

                    All mfg. are getting in position for the California lead requirement.

                    Flowguard (Lubrizol) PEX is warrantied for 30 years. What rep said. But I need it in writing before it's true.

                    Talked to Uponor about metallurgy. Waiting for Viega to respond through email. Working on some conclusions.

                    and Ridgid was a no-show.

                      Great, I'm going to have another Moen cartridge to carry on my truck. Did they show what is going to replace the 1225?

                        A guy had two propresses on his truck.
                        One Ridgid,the other REMS.
                        He told me he would sell me his REMS.

                        Gee...I wonder why?

                          You should be careful about buying things out of the back of people's trucks. It can be dangerous.

                            Lavatories will start having one #1255. Believe this is correct.

                              So Moen has finally managed to make a Delta stem. That'll fix all the broken handle problems. And the ceramic? Just like everybody else. Hmm.

                              I wonder if they ever test anything they make before they market it. I used one of their Homey faucets that someone handed me and it has the finest trap for rust I've ever seen. Unfortunately, the faucet will not function until you figure out how to get it out of there.
