Charlie: Mark in Acres Homes has one for you. I love this one. He says his house has hard water, and he had a water softener but it died. It was outside the east side of his home under barbecue grill cover, which I never thought of putting one under something like that. But anyway, he had two companies come out and say that … two different ways of getting his system to code. I didn’t realize there was a code to how a water softener was put in, Tom.
Tom: There is, it’s just how you take the regeneration water and what you do with it. It goes into a sanitary sewer now, and you have to have a P trap, and it’s not that big a deal.
Charlie: Okay, so he wants to know what would you recommend he do with this? Is this just call AquaTex and get it handled?
Tom: Yeah, call a good water softening company and have it done. Now, a lot of guys will say to code, and they’re just doing an up sale because people don’t know better, so you have to educate yourself on these things. And that’s why you always want to deal with a company that’s up front with you. And a lot of companies, as you know Charlie, aren’t. Our certified Home Show pros always are. The people at AquaTex will tell you what they can and can’t do, and they’re not going to just throw this code thing to scare people. And a lot of people are scared when they hear, “Oh, I’ve got to do code.” You’ve got to be careful when somebody uses that a lot. You know, you’re in sales, and if you oversell something, like we were kind of joking earlier, you’ve got to be leery about that. There’s no doubt about it.
