Hi, Sue. Thank you for the welcome. I had read about pipes and the effect of copper. I'll try to find it and share the info. I have all copper in the house I'm in right now. I'm in the process of rehabbing my Chick's Beach house and it, too, is all copper. However, when I went to check progress last week, I saw the plumber did not use copper in the rehab job. He used some plastic pipe. Needless to say, that is not staying. I'm meeting the contractor tomorrow and will enlighten him ONE MORE TIME ! PS…. I will check my water heater temperature. Thank you for that !!
I'm curious. You mention your Texas yard that you share with chickens and wild birds. How in the world do you avoid the "dust"? I have two rescue parakeets and my daughter wants me to pass them onto another home. I was in the hospital this past weekend because I had a lung bleed which was somewhat substantial so I had to go to ER and they admitted me. The on call pulmonologist was in partnership with my usual pulmonologist and he too, was wonderful I asked him about my birds and he wasn't to happy to hear about them, but said he didn't want to end my love affair with them so the very least use a mask when I'm around the. What is your experience/knowledge? These are my two little friends and such good company.
Thank you for all your information! Regards. Toni
