I'm living in a new house built by stoned monkeys. We're also on a remote island that boasts one trained contractor and a bunch of DIYers - none of whom think actually working more than 5 hours a day 2 days a week is acceptable.

Bottom line, if you want something done here, you do it yourself. Wish I'd found this forum months ago.

General advice about venturing into the dngrous. unknwn.

Many years ago (not that many, really!) I was part of a General Maintenance team in an HRF (health related facility) When we had to deal with a backed up, 4", Horizontal sewer line which ran above the main dining room on the First floor. In one of the weaker moments I thought of opening the "clean-out" plug to clear the line. Lucky for me I didn't follow through on my "brainstorm". Had I done that, the "disaster" that would have ensued (not life-threatening, really but extremely unpleasant) would be enough to write a few books. So, the lesson to be learned is, that sometimes, when we venture outside our field of expertise, dangerous things can happen!!!:laughing::yes:
