Apologies to all. Damn NNTP is screwing up and doesn't send confirm code.

Now this will probably not go through or repeat a dozen times...LOL


Somebody nudge Josepi. He's stuck.

@newsfe17.iad:


Been having the same problem the past few days. I am using teranews as well
but wasn't sure of XNews was part of the issue. Since you are using OE,
XNews is probably not a contributor.

Maybe 1 out of 10 works properly.

If you haven't figured it out, just send and if Waiting... persists then
just Stop it. It has been sent and will show up. It will not show up in
your sent folder (Xnews anyway).

 If you are using electric water heating, now I wouldn't bother. There is not
really any gain in economy.

Your lights may dim and you could overload your electric service, depending
on how modern your wiring / fuse panel is.

I doubt you will have enough hot water supply to supply a shower and a dish
washer at the same time.
My rinnai gas unit runs 185,000 BTU and it can be "just barely enough"
sometimes.

Learn the BTU math and get educated so they can't sell you the "infinite
supply of hot water" BS. If your water comes form the ground at 45F your BTU
cannot produce as much volume due to a limited BTU rating. Do the math.

There is also (in a gas unit moreso) a delay in reecognizing water demand so
if you trun the tap on and off repeatedly you may never get hot water. This
inputs a cold water shot ("sandwich") in your pipes if you did this in the
shower.






home depot and lowes sells these, models requiring either 2 x 40 amp or 3 x
40 amp
breakers, depending on power

has anyone installed these and what are your observations / recommendations
?
