    I still have a couple pair of NOMEX. What's required for another trade?

    If you are willing to relocate across the country?? Seattle has been booming for 15 years, non-stop. We have seen no slow-down, winter- summer. HVAC Techs are in demand. If you know what you are doing $30 an hour is normal with bennies after a 60 day trial. The down-side is the typical house costs 289,000. All of the O.T. you can stand is available, year round. $290K may sound extreme for a home` but if you are willing to drive 45 minutes the cost of living goes down considerably ($170, 4 bed, 2.5 bath,)The 300,000 home has a great view of Mt. Rainier. Awesome salmon fishing in the summer, great hunting in the fall(mule deer, white tails, black-tail, chucker, grouse, ducks, geese, quail, rabbits, elk, and black bears 2 per year.)

    Hey all, I got to work yesterday!M on a boiler also revealed a bad gauge, leaky drain and a bad Red Fox pump. I'll go back Monday to replace the pump. Then off to Benihana for no hot water. Taco pump impeller disintegrated. Nobody had a new cartridge anywhere close so they got a new B&G PL50B with flanges. Bill was over $1,000 but I don't design nor do I build the parts, they want hot water NOW, they're going to pay the price. Finally a late-season res furnace PM so I got done at 9.25 hrs for the day and I have some work lined up for Monday.

    Otto ,

    You sound a little remorse about the price of the pump and service. You are right you don't manufacture the pump. Don't try to justify the price. Just take the price apply your markup and bill it.There is no shame in this.

    I just hate when Aunt Flo comes to visit. Everything is our fault and we don't get none.
