18b. Over the weekend the downstairs got hot. The downstairs unit wasn't working. I soon discovered that an EJ's technician had cut off a copper drain line coming out of the side of the house and had crimped it shut. Unable to pump the drain water out, the unit refused to come on. Once I uncrimped the line it came back on. I had to argue with the technicians and convince them that they had broken my downstairs unit. Eventually on Monday one came out and "repaired" the line by attaching a couple of additional feet of copper tube with some silicone caulk. Derek and Dominic attended the Chess Camp All Day Intensive.
