    I think that's good advice here, and you've (all) convinced me. I ran this option by the boss, and she said that that would work fine for her. I think I'll have a separate switch next to the light switch, as Jim suggested.

    BTW, I've been following the thread with your experiment with tankless. We could talk about high maintenance!

    Also, how is it that some of you seem to respond to EVERY thread? And at least one of you (Jim) have helped me on the tile forum too! How much time IS there in a day in your universes? Or do none of you need sleep?

    We all make billions of dollars a year in our jobs and have all this extra time to try and help people save $$$$.

    BTW The photo below is a bridge I have for sale if any one is interested.

    Well, you got me thinking....
    most plumbers just have a natrual knack for bulls//t.....
    its part of our sales experience. with customers.......
    My wife says I gossip way too much with my cusotomers on the phone

    So.... with high speed cable...its like being on steroids...


    In my personal case I do my bookwork on Sunday Mornings
    and and I find it a nice break to take every so often..
    and occasionally its very educational......


    I prowl the internet like a "plumbing hound-dog" looking
    to solve other peoples problems ----
    probably cause no one else will listen to me anymore....

    Or Maybe it could be I need to get out more often.....

    yesterday, I took a 9 year old to a soccer game in Columbus Ind
    then I got to baby sit 5 9 year olds into the evening

    So this was my only outlet to the real world...

    I am just living the plumbing dream

    My good friend (who is also my minister, TV/computer repairman, and golfing buddy) is from Columbus, IN. His name is I.C. (Iredell Camuel) Wyatt, and he has family there, and he goes home for a reunion almost every summer.

    I don't know why others do it, but this DIY "help advice" stuff can be a lot of fun, very educational (for me), and a real great hobby because it can be done at any hour at one's own convenience.
    I'm not a licensed professional at any of the construction trades, but I've been DIYing for more than 50 years and have learned whatever I know from pros and others.
    I got into DIY websites when I got my first computer about 9 years ago. I don't participate nearly as much as I used to, but I have a total of more than 14,000 posts now on various DIY websites as a member or moderator (I'm up all hours of every night).
    Sure, I blow something every once in a while (advancing senility LOL), but someone always promptly straightens it out. That's what's great about multiple opinions and numerous people participating.
    Keep on keepin on.
    Mike
