"I've got to agree with Pat. I'm in Cent./Southern Ohio and older homes almost all have or had cisterns. Most were to collect rainwater from roofs and originally had a hand pump to draw directly from. Later on an elec. pump was…"

Ed Ballard replied to randy tolowski's discussion Why is this picure important in understanding moisture in buildings?
"Randy-----------I'll bite----It appears this is an older home from the siding. The cistern appears to have the drainage lines plugged by roots and the snake is being used to clean the blockage. With the underground drainage blocked the water is…"

Looking for PHIL JEFFERS

It seems fishy that Phil Jeffers seems to have been erased from this site. For those of you who have been members for a while you will know who Phil is. Like him or hate him, Phil always had something to say. Eveyrtime I saw a post with Phil's name in a response it was the first one I went to.Hopefully Phil just got drug off to the loony bin, but if he has been erased by the powers who run this site it would be a great injustice to all of us. You didn't have to agree with Phil and most didn't…See More
