My Geo system was officially turned on dec. 2, 2009. Except for an ECM blower problem, (the contractor will not install one ) the system has been working.
Here is my problem now. Since Jan. 1, 2010 I have woken up with extremely irritated, burning, red eyes, numb hands and headaches. This is unusual for me. About Jan. 6 I smelled a somewhat "sweet smell" in the house and thought of the Methyl alcohol mixture in my geo system. I brought home my combustible gas detector from work the next day and it went nuts around the pump pack canister and pump flanges. I unscrewed the big plastic threaded top of the pump pack canister and wrapped teflon tape around the threads. It helped a little but was still getting a reading on the detector. Tonight I re-wrapped the plastic top with teflon and it still didn't help and the fumes seem to be worse than ever. There is NO liquid on the floor of the basement. This seem to have started the first day of Jan. 2010 when it was minus 30 degrees here and -20 every night for the next 6 days.
I now have a window open in the basement and one one the first floor and the bathroom exhaust on , thank goodness it's only + 18 right now.
I unfortunetely don't have a good working relationship with the contractor so I don't know where to turn.
Any advice would not only be appreciated but may save my health!
