I was just pointing out that having stated I was just starting out should imply I have a lot to learn. That is why I turned to you experienced professionals here on this forum for answers. Whether it was a practice inspection or not is irrelevant. It is the responsibility of experts in their field to act as teachers and willingly pass their knowledge along to those wanting to learn.
To my question, one reply-or provided an explanation, two sent very helpful hyperlinks, and the discussion even provided a logical explanation for the “for salt” sticker on the RO tank. The advice to utilize InterNACHI’s educational resources is sound.
Your “innocent comments” were in no way helpful or even attempted to answer my questions. “Innocent comments” such as “education deficient”, go wander around a store until you understand everything, and your questions are basic stuff, were condescending and completely blew off my questions and concerns. Your comments did not allow me to access your knowledge in order to learn from you and your experience.
Your expertise and knowledge were gained through years of experience. I am working on gaining as much knowledge as I can as quickly as I can. When someone asks a question, be a teacher, not a judge.
