I'm with you - I don't agree. And told the tech that when I was on the phone w/him. I'm willing to do the work (and, if I can convince the customer, re-plumb most of the pad) and then call the tech back if it blows up and doesn't work.mas985 said:It is pretty easy to slow down the flow rate (i.e. add head loss) and see if that helps the situation. If it works, then there are several options to consider.

Here's a shot I took while I was out there yesterday - don't laugh too hard (and I want to stress... I didn't plumb this):
