I think so, but nothing spectacular. That day it installed 14 updates. I also don't appreciate the update box that pops up, for updates I do not want, every time I get on the computer.

I've got a 9'x9' pad in front of my entry door. Probably poured 20+ years ago, and has house structure on two edges, open to grade on the other two. There are no cracks in the pad, nor has it heaved. However, the top surface is concave and colle

I have no idea what burning mercury smells like. If the AC is not cooling like it should I would call the installer back to check it over. Perhaps the second strike did more damage than you think.

The BEST option would be a gravity drainage system but, if that isn't feasible, a retention pond with an exterior pump might take a lot of pressure off of the interior pumps.
