    Hood Extinguishing Systems - Just venting

    Just venting (no pun intended). I’ve said this many times on this Forum – “You have to pay for your education”.

    I wasn't thinking about a trench when I made that comment. I meant that you can't just lay a rod on the earth's surface and merely cover it up with a thin layer of dirt. I wasn't thinking "out of...
