RE: foil barrier insulation asking JD the roof man

Hi, have not used it on a roof but used it in my trucks as we get extreme cold up in northern Canada. while most trucks and sleepers were insulated i found after using this type of product that truck was as much as 40 degrees warmer and that i was turning the heat down in the truck.

RE: Plastic Pipe Discoloration Question / Problem?

Hello and Welcome to the site,
The problem that you have may be from the type of water you have in your area. I am not 100% sure but that is what i suspect. the coloring sounds like iron content,and having said that i would not worry to much about it as you have no leaks.
