    I got nothing..... nothing exciting. We're installing 18 ESP-SMT and 7 Hermit Crabs for a client next week. That's about the most excitement we've seen all summer
  2. I think the moral to Walkgood's story is that I need to offer pigtails in two colors.

    Replaced 523 PGP's (96.5% were leaky seals) with 5004's.

    Dang, one site or over the year?

    I posted on a different thread pics of a 5004 running with PGP's and you can clearly see the advantage. Not as much mist, and much lower angle of throw.

    No, but here's a good example.
  7. You wear rubber boats with laces?

    I don't wear boats and that's not my pic.

    Yeah I'm with you on the PGPs something went really south on them.

    Doesn't look like the wiper seal is leaking. Just the screw-on collar is leaking. Perhaps it wasn't tightened correctly?

    I have also found that some very MUCH older PGP canisters do not mate up correctly with new guts-n-collars. Have to replace the whole unit or the screw top leaks. Anyone else have that happen?
