    A mixing valve is suggested when the store is in a warmer climate since our water never freezes and incoming temp is higher than most other States. It mixes incoming water with the hot outgoing water to increase pressure & flow called a "Mixing Valve" ...

    That is not an error code but a cycle counter display. It will always pop up when a service panel or service key is opened or if selected when the coin box is opened. It may be the coin box so push the coin box all the way in and make sure the service ...

    Check the serial number.  The first 4 numbers should tell you the year/month of manufacture.  Water bill seems kind of low compared to gross income and dryer costs.  Not much left for labor unless you plan to be unattended. ------------------------------ ...

    The jump in numbers from one year to another would make me nervous. Did the owner stop letting quarters fall out of the bag for the purpose of selling? Is there a major project in the area causing an influx of lower end workers in the area that may ...

    Regarding the lease, you need to know how the 5 year option is exercised. In the lease it might say you are required to notify the LL a year before for example. Also, you need to know what the option is basing the rent on. Will the 5 year option continue ...

    It's not in the washers. Its the organic stuff in the drain line. If you ever find an actual solution please let me know. I use an enzyme cleaner made for killing odors at the end of the day. It helps. On occasion I have the drain hydro blasted. This ...

    Are the doors left open or closed? Dexters can start smelling if the doors are shut when not in use. Run a load (empty) with bleach to clear odor, and then give it a sniff test. ------------------------------ Janet Carson Store Owner/ Employee Busy Bubbles ...

    Any holiday will interrupt the flow. I noticed it takes about a week for people to get back into the normal rhythm. You see some of the same issues at the end of the school year. Customers get their routines all set during the school year and then they ...

    We got these heavy duty metal benches from the sports authority when they were going out of business last year.  They were about $40 each, I regret not buying more.  They seem like they will last a long time. ------------------------------ Chris Lee ...

    I have laid tile on top of adhesives left on the concrete and had no problem. It is just important that you scrape up anything loose. I believe you can prep the floor with a product that will promote a better bond with the concrete and mortar.   As as ...

    Don, First of all, Mr. Seller's payment has nothing to do with you so add that figure back into the net.  That gives you a net of about $4,751.  Now subtract something for labor.  After all, even if the place is unattended (which seems likely) it still ...
