Re: Which pain reliever is best for?
The crawl space was a riot. Here's was what was in it, one water furnace, one electric furnace, 3 42 gallon kerosene tanks, and a central vac system. Whoever installed the central vac system was bat **** crazy. I never seen so many funky angles.
Went to rework the wiring in outlet and found it was double stacked inside a 2x6 wall. Wires jammed in the box like it was a competition.
Vent time. I'm on the west side of the house, it's 15 degrees, I'm on a lake and the wind is blowing so hard it hurts. I was outside wresting the vent that obviously had been installed with some type of adhesive they use on airliners. I was in a awkward position on my latter due to pier poles being strewn all over the ground. I finally ripped the housing and vent out, and dumped what believe was chipmunk poop all over my head. I'm not a expert on chipmunk poop but I believe it was poop from some omnivorous creature with a fetish for nuts.
Hook up the water: I noticed that on the cold side inlet of the unit there was no plastic plug as there was on the the hot side. So while I am kneeling there I pull out the plastic plug. When I did that about 2 cups of stagnant water dumped onto my knee and soaked my knee pad. So I remove my knee pads but the smell of death is still on my pants. Moving on.
Fire it up: It's go time, around 3:00 on a Friday. You already know where this is going. I crawl back in the crawl space to the other side of the house because that is the obvious place to put the well and shutoffs. I turn the water on slowly and as I am crawling out, I hear SPRAYING WATER. I commando crawled out of the crawl space so fast that any Drill Sargent would have been impressed. I jump out and find it's just the utility sink I left on.
Turn the unit on, and test it out. It worked fine. I tested every fixture and went out and began cleaning up. Everything is loaded up and I am starting to insulate the lines when I noticed one little drop of water on the male threads of outlet side of the Unit. I thought maybe my union was not tight enough so I snugged it up. No luck. So, I took it apart, inspected it, and the threads, doped and taped it and put it back. It worked. I check it ten minutes later, I seen that small drip again. I finished insulating the lines.
By this time it's late and I have a parent teacher conference to go to. I called the customer let him know that I believe the unit has a cracked brass nipple that is not field serviceable, and I will evaluate it further tomorrow.
Since I am running late I meet my wife at the school. I have chipmunk poop on me, I smell like death, I tore a hole in the knees of my pants. I look like hell and feel like someone beat my knees with a bat. SEXY!
How was your day?

Anyone can tear a man down, few can build one up.
