    In dry poly pipe (system winterized, and still not opened the next spring) I just use the steel fish tape for a conductor, and get maybe a hundred feet of signal path to trace. It drops off real fast, compared to a copper wire trace.

    even Texas boys can winterize a system if they have an air compressor. Then they got dry pipes and an easier task.

    People've been staring and whispering at and about me so long that i don't care.

    Tell the bystanders to go away or you will cast a spell on them.
