some may remember me I don’t post my installs nor advertise here or anywhere but after so many years and so many jobs it’s a rarity that a HO will contact you aside from issues ? No well once in a occocasion you will get the just wanted to call to say thank you and that the new steam boiler u installed is silent no a peep and we thought the minor banging and loud hissing was all normal now we know the truth I figured I would post this for all the one man shows out there who work alone busting your hump and rarely aside from get the check get a thank you a month or so later it does happen That there are people who will pay for the correct job and the ones who want cheap let them live with there choices same goes for the leave it for the next owner This HO wanted to make sure that when he sold his home that his heating system wouldn’t be a issue and he is sure of it now. From a 30 year old 6 section peerless to a 3 section 118 funny funny stuff I posted this for all those out there who always do the right thing that’s it’s not always in vain and for our mech ego. Lol it’s to honor the craft mans who originally installed these systems and keep them out of the hands of idiots who cannot read or look at a pic and figure it out so to all the knuckle dragging pipe wrench carries remember to take pride in what u do some day outta the blue some will call you w a unexpected thanks Ps don’t wait by the phone this is maybe the 10 or so time in 30 years plus of doing this lol peace and good luck and as always thanks to both our host to which a lot of us would be a little dumber. Peace and good luck clammy

    "Some may remember me..."

    I'd be suprised by anyone who has been a Wallie for at least a few years who doesn't recognize/remember you :)

    Hope your doing well up there. Yeah those calls are nice to get, and well deserved for you. Don't be a stranger...

    There was an error rendering this rich post.

    Nice to hear your voice. Missed you at Henrys this year, he had a heck of a barbecue event in the parking lot.
