  1. An on-demand unit heats water to the same temp as a "regular" boiler. What can happen is that a very long run of un-insulated pipe, particularly one that is in the ground, cools the water off going from the heater to the point of use. Move the heater closer to the point of use, or insulate the line, or run an insulated line. Tubo-Plus (AKA: "the green stuff") is a double walled co-polymer pipe that can do a good job versus copper in these kind of situations and also be more durable and leakproof as well.

  3. Not sure I understand that. We have on demand and a long run to the kitchen and it works great. Getting the hot water there is no slower than it was with a regular hot water heater but we are using 1/3rd the gas we used to. You have to wait for the hot water to arrive regardless. One trick our guy used was to set the operating temperature lower so when you mix hot with cold you use more hot and keep the flow up so it doesn't cycle.

  5. I had to get to SAT twice by ambulance,was there in 5 minutes, and their emerge staff was just fine with my life on the line. The emerg doc worked well by phone with my Cardio. I have complete confidence in their training and abilities.

  6. "X" emergency room has gotten very mixed reviews. Not sure if they are understaffed or under trained but they don't inspire confidence when lives are on the line. In an hour you could be at Puerto Hierro Sur on Lopez Mateos before you ever got paperwork filled out in "X" waiting area...although they do have plenty of parking. Alan

  10. I had a bad experience with Bellon on car insurance about 5 yrs ago and just did the normal thing, moved my insurance to another firm. In this case, Parker has been great. But, agree everyone can have a good experience with any particular vendor of any type.

  11. What I've noticed is that no matter what the service is, from a dentist to insurance agents, is that there is always SOMEONE who has a bad experience and complains, naturally. However, it's the majority experience that counts. Bellon has been my experience for years and it's been fine; however, I'll admit we've never needed to use them to process a claim. w

  13. as read today in the Washington Post. For the past three years the FDA has mandated that hearing aid providers must allow over the counter service for slight to moderate hearing loss. Today, Tuesday, they lost patience, and are now allow hearing aids to be sold in the U.S.A. without a doctors prescription, then filled by an Audiologist. Prices are expected to drop drastically from the current average of $5,000 per pair. The article did not mention this but I forsee sales over the internet and lots of try before you buy options.

  14. I am about to order gas. I last filled my 180 litre tank in December of 2019. Yes, 2019. I have an on demand water heater which has no tank and no pilot light. It lights via piezo ignition automatically when the hot water tap is turned on. It requires two DD batteries. I have changed them once since installing the heater in 2016. And I cook using the stovetop... but have an electric countertop oven. No worries there either since I have 5 solar panels and my electric bill has been zero since March of 2018.

  15. That is perhaps a slightly exaggerated term. But, if I lived in one of those states, yes I would be nervous, perhaps not because the car I drive, but because of the nice neighborhood I live in which would suggest I am more well to do than I actually am.
