    The State of Vermont got on everyone's a$$ about getting licenses for everything. So now besides the EPA certification, which you all have, I have a VT electrical license, VT plumbers license, VT oil burners license, and a VT gas technician license. I am one legal beagle now.

    When ever I bid a job the question comes up. "Do you install HOT water tanks." I would say no let your plumber do that part of the job. And everyone was happy.

    Screw it now. I'm licensed to sell HOT water tanks so I am going to get my self in hot water. I sold 2 in two days. One gas to a HO and one oil to the School Dist.

    I thinking of having BC1 change my handle to "bennHOTwater".

    Sorry, I just had to vent out of my P/T relief valve.

    What about hot water boosters in a commercial dishwasher room?

    Experience is what you have an hour after you need it.

    My "hot" water heater comes on when it gets below 130deg. Is that a warm water heater?

    "No sir.. it's technically a cold water heater"

    That's what he said in his post. Hot water heater is only in the title.

    I do about 15 a year. What the hell. Actually next week got a biggie at a local mall for a yuppie style pub. Hey, it aint my fault they license me for it. It's easy work and you make a few bucks off it. Come to think of it, on any of my commmercial accounts I almost always get first crack at any plumbing project I want. There is a lot of grey area to whom is able to do what here in the State of Michigan, if you hold a mechanical contractors license or the Plumbing license. They can't touch my stuff, but I can put my hands all over there stuff. New installs I can not touch, obviously, but service and replacement I can do. I am always fixing water lines, a toilet here and there and water heaters. I have a very close friend who is a self employed plumber, I will just say, I don't often mention to him I am involved in little jobs like I have said here. He'd get ticked off, and understandably so. Same for him though, running duct for dryer vents and what not.

    You let a plumber run a dryer vent with 4" round 1 time. He all of a sudden will claim he is a bona fide HVAC tin knocker. They, the majority of them I have met think they can do what we do. And I always just sort of chuckle at that.
