    When customers say;

    "I installed it myself".

    I proceed with caution.

    The high voltage line run with the copper was nicked and bleeding current to ground, especially after a rain as well as being spliced and the wrong wire.

    The electric piggybacked off of the a/c breaker going to a an outdoor plug has no over current protection for the sized wire and no GFCI of course- not to mention no stress fitting or conduit being exposed along an outside patio wall.

    RUN FOREST , RUN!, that cheap @ss isn't going to pay you to fix their F-up.

    They screwed the pooch, they can fix it theirselves.
    It`s better to be silent and thought the fool; than speak and remove all doubt.

    Avatar is a tribute to my Great Grandfather, Andrew Stewart. This pin was one of his advertisements for his heating and plumbing business. I never knew him but must of inherited his love of things mechanical since I am the only blue collar worker in the family
