    Re: Water heater woes...

    OK, after getting a lesson in sweating the pipes, got everything done Saturday. Because I had 3 runs to Menards or Lowes, it turned into a 6 hour install. I blame the Nationwide race.

    We installed a new shut off on the hot water side.
    Dad elected to keep the pipe with the crazy straw look, and just install a heavy copper flex line with some thick rubber gaskets.
    I tossed on a bit of pipe insulation on the hot line.

    $600 to fix this. AC stuff is going to have to wait a bit now. :-\

    2020...year of seeing clearly for the first time in a while. And moving half way across the USA to rehabilitate a 65 year old abandoned dealership into a rod and resto shop.

    Moving to Alabama from Nebraska...I left Nebraska and came back to Nebraska. Only with a lot less snow.
