    No leaky valve to soak your insulation eh?
    Cost me $70 to replace what was damaged. :s

    That and I HATE INSULATION!


    **EDIT. Well, ok, it was more like $40 to replace it but I added some to do more of my returns since I was placing an order.

    Around 30. There is still 70 in the forecast so I am not turning it on yet. Besides I haven't even done my maintenance so it's not ready to turn on....that's what I am telling the wife. ;)

    No leaks here. Too warm outside to let it run but we are ready.

    Replaced a couple gortons with Hoffman vents that have adjustable ports on my baseboards because they vented too fast, stinking up a room. Now most air is vented thru gortons at end of mains. Radiators heat up and no smell.
