    You have no idea how happy this makes me, I have been living for
    over 5 years with leaks in my waterheater, stove and my furnace,
    my house should have never passed the inspection when I bought
    it. I have been sick, well everyone in my house, but mostly me.
    I want to be better so badly, my husband was suffering from
    really bad headaches and mine symptoms were everything you can
    think of, I already had sinus problems and had surgery last year
    but still have not healed from it, this explains everything.
    Good luck and I hope I can feel like superwoman soon. Joyce
