    I like it! Keeps the hiney cool or warm as needed. Maybe that should be code.

    You sure that's for heat, not the urinal?

    How many inspectors give a little tap to sagging flex duct to see if there is liquid inside?

    What would be your thoughts if you found liquid in the flex duct to this register?

    (a) Bad aim

    (b) Bad seal

    (c) Good aim, Bad child.

    The beatings will continue until morale has improved. mgt.

    I'd even take it a step further to say bad boy.... we boys are just slow learners I'm afraid. My 11 year old still has problems

    As for the flex ducting, I always knock them around a bit. I had a house a few years back where the sellers had just had the carpets cleaned and the guys that did it (from another country where there are lots of floor drains) poured the waste water down the vents as they were working. Yep, about 25 gallons of water down the various registers... surprisingly, the carpet cleaners admitted what happened and took care of it. Apparently, the training couse at ACME carpet cleaning didn't cover absolutely everything
