    If you were right there and turned it back on you have nothing to worry about. If you left it off til this morning you might have problems. EJW

    Rooster, I agree with others as long as you re-opened it right away it should be ok. However as I read the wall I see you're a person that is thirsty for knowledge (this is a good thing)and that's why you'll do well getting into this business. With that said I believe you'll like reading this article from our host, Dan. And once again as Dan says. "It pays to wonder off The Wall"!

    Why you should never dead-head a circulator
