    Yay me. The AC unit drain is evidently stopped up again and has flooded the carpet under my couch and beyond once again so i guess i get to add that to my list o' to do today.

    Dang Taco, I hope things are getting better. I don't know how well I would handle that situation. That's tough.

    Anyone know a place in the Springs to get 18' treated 2x6's? My big trailer needs a new deck and the supports are made for 18' boards.

    Foxworth - Galbraith has been the place I've had to get lumber that was outside the typical Lowe's/HD offerings. There's one on Nevada between Predator and Filmore.

    Pup surgery sounds tough for the pup as well as the owner. I don't think I could keep my pups immobile long enough for them to heal afterwards.

    The acl stuff seems to heal pretty quick. Had one done on a Friday, lounged around with the dogs over the weekend and went back to work Monday so they were back to being relatively unsupervised for 6 hours until someone else got home.

    Phew, had to sleep in a little today. Got to sleep till 8am! Am still very tired but it felt good to get some much needed rest. Have 15 different projects going on all at once, so it feels like I have been pretty productive, but really I just have a lot I need to complete.

    Whole house has been vacuumed and just have to steam clean the carpets. The hardwoods have been cleaned and polished. Kitchen is clean and new contact paper is getting put into the drawers and cabinets. Got the sewer line repaired, but still need to reassemble the basement bathroom. And the new fence extension is going up. Will be the same style as the fence I did for my old property. Metal and wood brings the smiles to my face. I have a few more posts up from when I took this photo but it was getting dark



    And got one of the interior walls taken down in the shop:

    This is what i am doing as we speak. Fixin' to head to Lowes to get parts.

    Also, while working on this project, i noticed that the water heater has about 1/2" of water in it so its failing. The house is now 10 years old so i guess its lived a good life but i just dont have time to deal with it so close to vacation so im just going to keep an eye on it and turn the water off to it before i leave for vacation.

    If i was just going to replace it, i would do that because its quick and easy but i will be going tankless so i have to run heavier wire and all that crap.

    I have heard that dumping clorox in there is the thing to do but there isnt a convenient place to dump said bleach in my AC unit.

    Pulled the turbo off the F350 tonight. Would've been SO much easier if I had done it before. Unison ring is in good shape with little wear.

    Got new turbo supply and drain lines ready. Will probably do the EGR cooler while I'm staring at it.

    Also have the upgraded STC fitting if I can just get the courage to go that far. Tomorrow....

    I have tried a few sleep meds and all have had the opposite effect on me as in i am wide freakin awake all night long after taking them. I talked to my doc about it and he said that is actually the case with some people. Ive just learned to live with it. Even thought the nights when i dont sleep suck, i really dont seem any more rested on the nights that i do sleep. It all evens out.

    Anyone have experience with tankless water heaters? I was convinced that was the way to go until i started reading some last night. It seems that one big expense issue lots of people have is running big wire to the unit which i dont think will be an issue in my case because my current water heater and breaker box are both in the garage so it wont be more than a 20' run. Any other positives or negatives i should look at?

  29. #50589
    No personal experience, but a quick search of this GCC forum using "tankless" turned up a bunch of results that might be helpful.


    Or, can we just call you Guinea Pig?

    I was told that I need to replace the flu. The existing one isn't big enough. My water heater is in the basement and it would be major work on the house to replace it all the way to the roof.

    My house is all electric so that shouldn't be an issue.

    Yeah, last reply on one of those threads was probably at least 2 years old and technology changes fast.

    I asked here because i know people here and will get honest answers.

    Two weeks ago, i was about to buy a tuner for my truck but for every single one of them including the custom tune people, you get reviews all the way from this is the most fawesome thing in the world to its a waste of money and didnt do crap.

    Online reviews are worthless which again, is why i asked here. I also texted Rex so maybe he will have some insight.

    My first experience owning one will be with the new property. I looked at going to one when we replaced the water heater at my old property. A good buddy convinced me out of it. In that case, the existing vent was not enough and would have added a decent expense to the project. Also, he suggested a water softener since the tankless make your water "harder" since it removes minerals, and our water was already pretty "hard". And that would have been another costly item.

    He also warned that if multiple things are running at once (ie dishwasher, shower, clothes washer, etc) that you could run out of hot water as the tankless has no real reservoir. The purchase price is usually a bit more. Meaning the saving over the conventional takes years to recuperate. And the last thing I remember him telling me was that maintenance was a bunch more. But from what I have learned about my new system, it is basically just descaling the heater at least once a year to rid it of any minerals built up.

    Worked another long, hot day at the new property yesterday. Then the storm rolled though. Holy crap! The lightning was awesome. It was like a very bright blue light was constantly flickering. There were only seconds, if that, between the flashes, and that lasted for about 30 minutes. And it dumped close to an inch and a half of water in that time. Mostly rain, but a little hail.

    Took a break this morning to tend to my wife who is sick. Sucks she feels bad during this stressful time, and that she can not provide much help because of it. And that is stressing her out more. And honestly, I could care less, and just want to see her happy/healthy. The work and the moving will get done when it gets done. That being said, I need to get going to the paint store to pick up my order or the new fencing will never get stained.

    Ok, everything else still applies. I wasn't offering a review as I haven't lived with one for a long period yet. Just offering up what I had learned this far.

    What is your incoming water temp? I know based on the table here in CO an electric unit you have to get a pretty big one to be able to still have the temp rise that you need. I just checked the Rheem Table for them and the 24kw unit is the smallest you can get that can flow 6gpm with only a 30 degree rise. Figure your shower draws about 3gpm, so plan for about 60 degree rise, but if your water is only 55 degrees coming into the house then that means you are almost all hot water for your shower.
    hookers and blow!
