    How do you react at a LFS?

    If given the chance, I normally explain to the customer whats deemed to be the proper or correct way, and point them in the direction where they can research the info for themselves (normally here). But i would never tell someone that they are flat out wrong in their approach. Somtimes the...

    To all guests on

    I believe that most guests are looking around first and reading discussions and posts if they have questions. They may not want to ask a question and be told "Did you" OR the guaranteed verbal beat down that they get when they post their methods of doing things if its not...

The reason to know this is to determine how long will you need to house the occupants in a temporary tank or...
