    My new furnace

    Yeah right, Went to a service call for a disaster restoration co. and found this beautiful do-it-yer-self job. It's a lake place that foreclosed, when the furnace broke down a pipe froze and flooded the place. You should see the rest of the place, it's BAD, personally I think the bank would have been better off if the house floated away or burned down. I did take the time to figure out that it needs a gas valve and used my bubbles to check the gas line they hooked up to their temp. heater. Haven't decided if I will fix it for them as there are way too many liability issues and they don't want anything corrected, understandably.
