    Thank you again!

    I also like your idea to call them and see what parts they would offer.

    I can see what you're saying.

    Can anyone else add anything, or answer some of my other questions?

    This crawlspace is so nasty, I wanted to have a plan B in case I run into any problems in the hole. Like if I can't get the pipe to drain right to solder or...
