    My experience with Taste of Chicago is:

    800,000 people
    90 + degrees F
    4 places to wash your hands
    High risk of food poisoning
    Mobs of S S teen gang banger rob and beat patrons
    Chicago media covers up everything

    Survivors vow to move out of Chicago and become Republicans.

  • I've only gone twice; once by myself and once with a friend, both occasions back in the early 90's. Unimpressed....besides, I loathe crowds and waiting in line.

    What will $1,300 rent you in Chicago?
    Curious just how far your dollar goes in Chicago? We've rounded up the latest rental offerings via rental site Zumper to get a sense of what to expect when it comes to finding housing in Chicago if you're on a budget of $1,300/month. Read on for the listings.
    http://abc7chicago.com

  • headsup not available

    $ 1300 a month = $ 15,600 to your landlord and forever out of your pocket. $ 1300 towards your condo or home payment = $ 1300 to you as the landlord. Not difficult to understand. In 20 years you would have paid down $ 312,000 ! Did I mention you would also enjoy an increase in your real estate value. That is a lot of money in your! pocket.

  • If you don’t have the money on hand to start the process (at least half of society and I’m being generous) or the consistent income to maintain it and build an 8 month untouchable emergency reserve on hand, then it’s a non-starter. Plus people pick up and go a lot...

    If you don’t have the money on hand to start the process (at least half of society and I’m being generous) or the consistent income to maintain it and build an 8 month untouchable emergency reserve on hand, then it’s a non-starter. Plus people pick up and go a lot more than we did 30 years ago. If everything doesn’t go to plan you could end up in the red within 2 years. More variables than not have to be in your favor. I don’t think the majority of society can do it. Wages are the same as they were 15 years ago. It’s only going to get more out of reach.

Plumber Recommendations

I live in a 5 story 1920s condo building with 10 units. There are a total of 4 plumbing riser stacks (galvanized) in the building. We have these risers routed out every year. Our contractor is recommending we route the risers twice a year now.

I am looking for recommendations for reputable plumbers with experience in vintage buildings. We are interested in getting professional opinions on such topics as:

1. Should we even be routing the pipes given their age and potential frailty?
2. Is power flushing a better option to routing?
3. What is remaining useful life and potential approaches to replacement?

Thanks much for any and all suggestions!

  • does your building allow garbage disposals? Get rid of them, now. They cause nothing but grief. Plumbers love them and call them the plumbers full employment act. We outlawed them in our 100 yr old 3 story 16 unit building. Have had almost no issues since we made that decision.

  • KJA

    Lorie, Jack, and Roger -- thank you for the input. Interesting perspective on the garbage disposals; we do allow them. I will research history on clogging (I have been in the building less than a year). Apparently we have been using Madden Plumbing for all the work.
