    Are the answers we give appreciated?

    You give advice based on the knowledge and experience gained over many years of hard work.

    Knowledge that is extremely valuable.

    Knowledge you cannot buy.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you get out of it?

    I will always try and help people. Even if some people do not want to listen. Just the way I am built.

    It's a 2 way learning process.
    Every time you teach or inform in this case, you learn.
    Particularly when it's a forum and others are involved.

    I'm 66 and still learning about lots of things, except for Women where I gave up trying years ago.

    I like to think I am a “team player” and will help anybody , but I like to see people use “manners” so if theres no “thank you” returned, I am out .
    Fortunately most do .

    Learning from people with experience is what makes me a better engineer, and it can save a lot of time in rectifying problems. So from me a big thank you to all the experienced people who post replies to help people with plumbing/ heating problems. Much appreciated.

    Since I moved into the education side of plumbing I appreciate at least keeping an eye on what is going on "out there." I still do some maintenance work and the odd install but it's really helpful to keep up a little with new products, methods, techniques or fixes.

    I naturally enjoy helping people solve problem where I can.
