Something about the 1970's and hot tubs in the same story gives me flashbacks I'd rather not have .

I had an issue once with water intrusion and my Airking. Had nothing to do with the crystal, but the crown. Never missed a tick though and was only discovered during a service.
Because you cannot eat a salad with a spork.
