Customer Question
Leak. Broken 5/8...

Leak. Broken 5/8 Tee joint. Found replacement online, but one prong of the tee has what appears to be a flow restrictor/reducer insert. Can't find any reference to that online. Can't tell where that tube goes. The other two go to the blowers (2).

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

Just discovered. maybe a week.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes
