What happens if you add water while the boiler is still hot?

How do I find out if the boiler is hot or not???



The boiler should have a temperature gauge and a pressure If the boiler has been running and the temperature is up in the 180 degree range, adding cold water could crack the heating block. You'd need a whole new boiler.

Thanks for the interesting link.

Whenever I see a mention of Bayview Cemetery I always think of the story about the JCPD Police Memorial Statue’s history. Check it out…

That's fascinating... I had no idea how much action that statue has seen. It's such a Jersey City story.

To park on the sidewalk, you need to drive on the sidewalk. City and state law are very clear on this. I don't see what complaints about packages have to do with this at all.

Seriously? They have spots marked out on the sidewalk for supervisors to park in. They're there every day. I complained to the city once and they said they'd enforce it, but of course they didn't.

DT Dry cleaner that does throw rugs?

I probably shouldn't have bought a white throw rug for the room by the front door, but now I know. Will pretty much any dry cleaner do this or do I need to find a specific one? Thank you in advance.

Nah, at some point in the past the owners decided to rip the original front of the building off and replace it with that blunt stucco facing. The building lost its historical integrity a long time ago, like most old things around here.

I have been following this more closely than you, JC man24. McCarrick's problem has touched the Vatican is because he went after minors as well as adult men in the seminary. McCarrick would invite seminarians to his beach house where there was only one bedroom. Not all the seminarians took kindly to McCarrick, some transferred to other seminarians and now many of them are posting on Catholic websites. McCarrick's nickname was "Uncle Ted." Pope Benedict stripped McCarrick of all privileges and was basically under house arrest. Pope Francis restored his privileges. So the former Archbishop of Newark will probably bring down the present pope in the Vatican. Abp. Carlo Maria Viganò, the former nuncio to the United States said this Pope Francis knew about McCarrick because he told him.


The Catholic Church has a serious abuse problem regardless of how finely you want to slice and dice the semantics, and the current crisis is probably going to bring up some serious world order-level changes like we haven't seen in centuries. It's going to be hilarious.

That's the entire point of the saying, you dolt.

1) Insults like that are uncalled for, and do not help you make your point.

2) Since you obviously missed it: Brewster used the cliche to suggest that predictions of imminent real estate doom in DT JC are justified, even if they wrong over and over and over again, because eventually someone who makes that prediction will be "right." I'm pointing out that isn't the case.

E.g. If you rub two stones together and say "this will make it rain tomorrow" every single day, then you are still not correct on the day that it inevitably rains.

So, if you exit a real estate market 3+ years before there is a crash, based on a poor predictor (e.g. a few properties whose price is absurd), you may pay a steeper price than exiting shortly after property prices increase by 25% per year. And even if you miraculously exit the market at the perfect time, that still doesn't prove that your "indicator" actually works.

Get it?


Breathe.

why is this a bubble? please explain.


There's lots of signs. One is this kind of pre-construction sale where the seller is trying to get it sold while the market is still hot, and the buyers often think they can make money just holding the property with the downpayment till completion and then they can flip it for profit in a double closing. Another is the GRM of these properties, the rent/purchase ratio. This place would have to rent for $18k a month to make sense as a rental, so who in their truly right mind wants to own it?


Is there a restriction on turning this place into a multi-unit building? Looking at zillow, there are a lot of buildings in the $1m range in the neighborhood that haven't moved despite being listed for months. I just don't see a market for a $1.8m mini-mansion around here.

just curious? is there a reason why people don't seem to use metal or plastic/pvc roofing? are they a lot more expensive?


PVC was a lot more expensive than bitumen. After putting a white coating on the bitumen, I didn't see an advantage using PVC.

If I ever do new construction with a pitched roof, I plan to look at kynar coated steel. I have seen them used where houses get exposed to some pretty brutal winds, ice, hail, etc....


Capitol gave me a 25 year warranty for PVC vs. 10 years for bitumen. The cost difference was small enough to justify PVC.

The reservoir is filled by the Rockaway River and its tributaries, all of which have massive exposure to any recreational activity that the reservoir would see. The water is filtered and sanitized in Boonton before it enters the aqueduct.

Open the reservoir!

It's hilarious watching people throw global historical facts at Yvonne and *every single time* she responds with some decades-old provincial local bullshit that nobody cares about. Yvonne's world doesn't extend past whatever Jersey City's borders were in 1972. Stop rewarding her with responses, even if it's high entertainment.
