Re: Water heater replacement

Temperature/pressure relief valve discharge should terminate outside or into a sealed internal drain. If that TPRV blows, it could vent almost boiling water at 10 bar......be too much for that drip...

Re: Visa interview time frames

Re: Have i dropped a clanger

It was fine, all got in okay, However, my thoughts on Verifly were echoed by American Airlines/BA, Verifly is completely flawed when trying to tag kids onto an adult's pass. I won't bother next time.
