CAN YOU TOP THIS?
Welcome to the latest edition of our popular “Can You Top This?” column, featuring the newest entry in the Service Industry News “Horror File. ”

“Here’s a beauty: we found this heater installed underneath the generator control box”, writes Dave.
“It has been that way since 2009; it passed the building inspection that way. There’s a lot of juice inside that box, probably not a good idea to accelerate its corrosion and become a fire hazard. We will recommend they not use the heater or replace with smaller. We’re cookin’ with gas now!”
Other publications like to print lots of pretty pictures of beautiful pools, spas and well engineered installations.
At Service Industry News, we would rather go behind the scenes and take a closer look at the type of stuff our readers encounter everyday — cracked tiles, spaghetti plumbing, rats in heaters, cars in the pool, snakes in the plumbing, and more!
