Re: Water Heater Insulation


Its not been that cold here yet. About 40'-50's but overall not really cold yet but my cold water temps feel like I have chilled water coming out my cold faucets. In the summer the cold feels almost warm. I have to sometimes go back to jobs to adjust the max temp setting of the valves because its such a difference in the winter.

So even though it don't feel that different outside the cold incoming water can make your mix much cooler.

Should I draw a diagram of the difference between a thermostatic mixing valve, a pressure balancing valve and vice grips?

Re: Water Heater Insulation


Well Marcy, Darcy, or whatever your name is, I've helped a schist ton of people on here. But you, you have a crap ton of free time so you just scan all threads all day waiting to make a comment. That doesn't say much about you.

And what is Marcy doing in a plumbing thread? Nothing.

It's laughable. Sad really.

This is the fulfilling life we live. I'm drinking at the same time if that makes it more productive.

Re: Water Heater Insulation


Excellent!

I might be missing something really important here on the forum.

Maybe I have this all wrong. Maybe I should be on the wood working & electrical sub-forums giving advice instead sticking with just plumbing & business . Dam, this could be great! This could be a whole new adventure.

I just look at the recent posts and give lousy advice at every opportunity.

What's laughable is how you always stamp your feet, whine about anything that does not pertain to what you wanted it to and then every time you always have some melodramatic post about never posting anything again.

All because you didn't comprehend using vise grips to turn the shower on and then posted one of your little fits about it.

You may think I'm stamping my feet but anybody who knows me knows that's not true. That's just your interpretation, and you are meaningless.

But I do get pissed. I have an extremely short fuse for idiocy. Extremely short.

You contribute nothing Marcy, yet all of a sudden here you are. And once again people can see your useless posts.

You can hate me or like me but at the end of the day I answer real questions by real people and my answers are well thought out and complete, and I answer them until people understand it. That is a fact, and most people here know that.
What do you do here? Nothing. Seriously, what is your purpose? Why are you on this thread? Care to answer?

You don't like me, I get it. So avoid me alright. I mean, are you psychotic?????

How many useless arguments have you participated in? I've seen a lot....

Ocono actually contributes a lot more good stuff to this forum than you or inner10 or any of those other yahoos on here.

If I am so meaningless, why do you bother? I can read and respond to what I so choose to.

At least I have not resorted to your level of name calling.

In fairness to inner 10, he does and has offered good ideas and input. At times I'd really like to kick him in the balls but I can't take away the fact that he has contributed.

You're right now that I thought about it some more. Best of both worlds?
