Good afternoon everyone.

Here I go!

  1. B=3, A=4, D=1, C=2.

2.Electrical Malfunction

  1. Should install a heat sensing alarm, NOT a smoke or CO alarm.

    1. Yes. 2. Observe the connection. Mechanical connection is permitted, glued is not.
  2. This will depend on factors, such as the severity of the stated “Critical Safety Concern,” as determined by the inspector. Also, depending on the state or licensing body, there may be differening guidelines on what must be reported and to whom.

That being said, “F” is the best option, as depending on what I said above, it the home poses an immediate life threatening safety hazard to all parties involved, it must be reported.

Sending 50 cents to you and Burp, need tissues too? I am into saving lives by doing my job the best way possible. If you cannot step up to that level of quality then inform your clients accurately. Have an amazing day Merc.

Screw off FAKER, in the holy cover of health.

Damb you are emotional…pipe down Merc. You are well beyond 50 cents at the moment.
Do your research before you post: Here is my YouTube channel: Enjoy…it is free for you to get your drone certification.

Merc, how do you help your community? You know…besides attacking people online. So, who is the faker here?

Hit the soft spot. Two replies-huh… … …
My mission, sometimes, is to call out higher than thou fakers.
You have no clue what I do in the community & how I proceed to implement it.
Get lost or answer the questions here to demonstrate your fake brilliance.

Funny, I can back up everything I say. I have a huge track record of helping out and giving the best possible service. You, Merc, you stand in my shadow…and the likelihood is you will always be who you are. Best of luck out the amazing Merc! My hope is you will remember who you are every time you place a radon device…just one device. Of course you will reply with something snarky but in the end Merc, you are still you…amazing Merc!
Just for fun Merc, here are over 1000 pictures of my dual radon testing.

That’s the third time you posted a link to all the fake tests you took for scare money from public.

Dude, you need therapy…maybe meds. Just curious, Merc, how does someone fake over 1000 pictures of 2 radon devices?

Could you please keep your comments to another thread other than here.
