What to do, what to do...

Good morning.
The weather has gotten back to 'normal' for this time of year. Highs forecast for the low 80's this week. :-)
We did receive an inch of rain overnight, so the grass should be nice and green for the wedding pics in a week and a half.
On the water heater front..... The tech came and accessed the situation. Couldn't understand why we were getting exhaust into the house. Everything looked just right. All he could suggest was maybe running another 6 inch pipe into the area with the other one to bring in more fresh air. He didn't think a power vent water heater would fix the issue. We'd have to go with a totally closed system like the furnace is. Would cost a couple thousand bucks. This just gets better and better right?
So I said we'd think about it. And we better think fast because later in the afternoon, it was spewing exhaust into the house again! The CO2 detector read a high of 127. A sustained level of 150 or more could be deadly. Fortunately we got the level back down to 0 in about an hour.
The rest of the day was maintenance stuff. One of the rug pieces on the mo-ho steps came off and I had to get some more sticky Velcro to reattach it. I also recharged the dump battery, and cleaned the mo-ho windshield. And of course, more weeding. :-)
And now, it's back to work for what looks to be another busy week!

    Hi Wayne, I was just wondering, could the hot water tank be moved to the attic?

  2. This water heater thing sucks... but you already knew that.

  3. Strange it is such a problem this year, but this year is strange when it comes to weather.
    I'd get a second or third opinion if you can, and maybe think about moving the water heater as your first comment suggested.
