    how big was the pond?
     
  2. Not that big. I'll take pics. Wait til I show you the elevator on this place. A place and time the ADA forgot.

    OK, I can understand that. A higher CFM reduces the "blow & go" time as well as increasing the efficiency of the job. We don't have any real freeze issues here, but I can appreciate a more thorough blowout is essential in areas with a frost zone.

    Thanks for the useful info.:)

    I asked if 125 CFM is necessary for a blowout. It seemed excessive to me as an inexperienced amateur.

    The CFM requirement has been explained, which I appreciate. Thanks for your time.

    Yes, Welcome. Often the first few (hundred) interactions can cause some stress and confusion, but we're good people.

    "What was the question" is kind of an inside joke.

    Absolutely. I've got some fires burning up there, Im up there about every other week these days. Count me in. I need some input on some goings-on (going-ons?)

    BTW, I look forward to the day that I can "forget" about driving cross-country for the winter!:)
