Mabe I should have explained…
The property I was talking about was an “As Is, Where Is” repop I bought from the VA in 1984 or 1985. It was near a large Air Force Base, in the path of one of the most used runways they had. You wouldn’t believe how much noise and vibration those heavy jets make when they are low and slow. When the gas co. came out to connect service they coudn’t even get the system to hold presure long enough to test it. City code required me to get a licensed plumber to come fix it. The plumber said it was common to have to take apart, redope and reassemble the systems in that area, he said he did it all the time and said nearly all of my connections were leaking.I think I paid him a couple of hundred buks for the job. I was glad to hire out that hot cramped insulation filled attic “job” to someone else.
Carefull with that compressor, our gas company only pumps a few ounces of pressure in their lines, doesn’t take much.
