  2. I hate cobras. Why give a great snake name to such a crappy product. It should be called stupid tube.

    Someone installed the water service line 6 inches deep. I tagged it with the puller. I was pulling at 10 " . Thinking it was a root I pulled up to hop the root... then water started rushing out. Lol

    All is well with a bid for a service line replacement too

    I'm not so concerned with the quality of the connection as I am with its physical strength. Some suction lines will be in moving water, and they need to have the physical strength of a mechanical connection.

    Don't know what kind of chemicals were stored in the closet with the controller but it sure corroded the wires/terminals.
