    Oh yeah, carry a pulley block where ever I go. You want a photo, I'll find it. Just for you, LOL.

    I do a triple evac with nitro to remove non condensables.

    I use 56% silver on everything except steel.

    Did you really need the " If you were a real tech " ??

    I always have a personal CO detector.
    What’s with the stock pic of the lineman?
    If I do a job in 30 minutes it's because I spent 30 years learning how to do that in 30 minutes. You owe me for the years, not the minutes.

    That house just looks dangerous with electrical hazards and venting issues and who knows what else.

    I personally wouldn't ever go back to that house. Nothing good can come from having your name associated with a place like that. But to each his own.

    Why can't you give a quote to make it proper? Wouldn't that be the professional thing to do?

    I definitely would have done so for the flue pipe. As for the electrical I might have said to call an electrician and I would return. I definitely would have documented enough of what I saw and make them aware for their safety and covering my a$$.

    You might ask STEVEusaPA the same thing. He said it wasn't his job. JS.

    It's been documented an a solution offered. By 'not my yob' I was referring to the electrical work. The electrical work was done by the people who did the kitchen, and the chimney liner/water heater vent was done by others.
    When (if) the furnace gets replaced the flue pipe will get corrected.
    Last time I was there, no liner and the gas water heater flue pipe was in the chimney higher than the furnace. That's when I told her she needed a new furnace and a liner.
    She got a liner, and a new kitchen...

    If I walked out of every basement that was a mess I'd only have to work part time. Fixing a mess pays pretty darn well, and sometimes customers don't realize it's wrong (like the chimney liner fiasco). I can only share with the homeowner what's wrong and how to fix it. Can't make them.

    It's not what you're capable of doing that defines you, it's what you do on a daily basis.

    They might have smart air there so it knows where to go. To play it safe they should have put arrows so it knows where to go.
