Be patient big guy. There should  be some resolution in your favor. 

i’m not worried about any of that, like i said and stated a long time ago, once i figured out the right tool, i’d ride it exclusively.

i figure everything happens for a reason and come on, really, what’s the likelihood of inmotion switching my wheels. just a mistake, i know, but not returning my phone call, i must switch allegiance. and for some reason i knew all this would happen.

anybody, even girls, nothing against girls, they are my only friends, even they could look at a teardown video of the z10 compared with the other wheels and determined it was better built. 

plus the z10 is the only one that they like the looks of.

besides walking Bob, picking up packages at the end of my driveway 1/3rd of a mile away, right or wrong, i think before getting a wheel to get it because i know the tires supposedly are adequate, even though we are running waay over capacity, i don’t go get a fifty pound package and strain the tires additionally. no worries with the z10.

plus i bet i’ve watched that teardown video at least ten times. i just love looking at work that looks like someone was trying. if my living conditions weren’t so primitive, i’d open mine up just to admire the work first hand. 

i love the silicone protectors though. especially for the z10. i don’t want to pop a blood vessel trying carefully laying it in my jeep or touareg. maybe i could reheat them and make them fit the z10?

any wheel will work on my road but only the z10 will work in my pastures also. i choose not to be away from Bob so riding time is very limited. i need to focus on the handling of one wheel. and my storage space s very limited. probably get two more z10’s.

Another water accident this time in my basement. Drywall, carpeting and molding damage. I sucked up over 100 gallons of water yesterday morning and the industrial fans have been running constantly. Thank God I caught it before going to work.

That's a big-@s trophy! Were you national kung-fu champ in 1999?

Oh man, what a pain.  I had a humidifier tubing burst a small hole in my basement.  Good thing I noticed it, but it did soak up a bunch of stuff.  There are water leak detectors that can be wired to alarm systems as well as water leak alarms.  I bought the sound emitting one that takes a nine volt battery off eBay or maybe it was AliExpress.  They were quite cheap.

Was it a burst pipe?

I am very sorry for your loss which you've shared with us before, and for being insensitive. I hope you can have it rebuilt at a professional trophy shop, and return it to a safer display area once all the repairs are complete.

Thank you Litewave. You were not insensitive one bit. It is a big trophy. My son‘s photo is what was destroyed. The trophy is fine. I never thought the photo and trophy sitting high up on a table would ever be an issue but the water sprayed directly downward. I am hoping there is a copy stored somewhere in a computer file. Take care.

I wonder if using PEX tubing and crimp ring compression fittings might be an easier way to go.  I’m no plumber though so I don’t know the pros and cons.  It looks like they use those slip fit shark bite ones in the military so it’s probably installer errors that create issues.

At least the pool table was covered!  

I got some of these el cheapo ones:

But I see they also have wifi ones too:

I use both the crimp and shark bites on PEX. In difficult areas where you can’t use the long crimping tool the sharks work great. Unfortunately their 10Xs the cost of standard crimp fittings. 

Yes it was an installation error.

The water went under the table so I had to lift it up and use my wife’s Tupperware lids to place under the wooden legs. 

I like the WiFi version. Definitely a consideration. I installed a remote control 1” main waterline shut off a few year’s back. In this occasion I was home so it was useless.

Not much to be said Dan. As you say...  therapy.

Best wishes for a tough situation.

Anyone here been paralyzed on a hospital or nursing bed? I have, twice, and it's just pure misery.

Now both times were just simple illnesses that got out of hand, something antibiotics easily cured, but being on one's back with your ass hurting due to the inability to move (the blood pools) is just pure misery. Minutes feel like hours. Men always say they want to go while having sex with a hit woman, but if you have some lingering illness I can assure you sex is the furthest thing from your mind, (even for @Hunka Hunka Burning Love).

I cringe for those that need a tracheotomy, where they pass a tube into your throat.

Is there a realistic possibility of some sort of recovery?
