Yesterday the booster pump arrived, and $2700 later, our dishwasher runs about 4 degrees hotter (Fahrenheit). I can’t say I’m overly excited. The plumbers and electricians who rooted around for an available circuit throughout the ceiling in the kitchen suggested a recirculation pump for the entire building, which makes me start wondering about what kind of malpractice insurance a mechanical engineer might carry. I still have an oven we’re not allowed to use because the engineer didn’t put it under the exhaust hood; we just installed a $2700 pump to boost our water pressure, which still isn’t getting the job done; and they’re talking about yet another pump, which, being significantly larger than the first, I can only imagine will cost significantly more. I will almost certainly be asking for this person’s credentials.
