Plumbing Forum discussions
TerryLove's DIY forums, what a joke, he has been reported on other forums as terry love forums of dis-information. Terry is a plumber in the Seattle WA area, he should go back to plumbing. His site is so biased in many areas that you need to be very careful to take any of the advice given there, or just do as I did, don't go there. Terry Likes the Toto toilet, OK... but he slams every other brand, even though posters praise many of them, he edits their post, and blots out the price they say they paid for a Toto toilet... why? He doesn't sell the Toto toilet on the internet, it must be because he's price gouging the people of the Seattle area. He edits many posts either as "Terry" or as "Reader Review", why... were the people not justified to post their opinions? The Consumer's Reports magazine recently rated toilets (August 2009), the American Standard brand came out as #1, with Toto coming in way down the list at #9, well Terry in all his wisdom spouts off that CR is never right on their ratings, and "he" as a plumber know best... what!
Pumps and Wells Forum
He has hired the company president of Cycle Stop Valves (CSV) to run his pump and wells forum, what a joke, this guy just deletes posts he doesn't like or puts his CSV in a bad light, or just tells truth about how this device will damage your pump and make you use 3 times as much electricity to pump your water. It will not stop your pump from cycling, and it will not save you any money, avoid it at all costs. He BANS anyone that points out the truth about his valve, just go there and read the posts, if the poster is listed as "Previous member" or "Guest" it is because "Valveman" has banned them, he has banned at least 10 posters, and one was a Professional Engineer who was very helpful at explaining how pump systems worked. He even banned one user "Speedbump" who changed from selling his valve to another company who would drop ship for him... nice guy! Don't believe anything from a poster named "Porky" he's just one of Valveman's employees.
Water Softener Forum, problems, installation and reviews
There's a guy here, named "Gary Slusser" who sell water conditioning equipment out of his motor home, and proudly announces it, he's posted a picture of it and the toybox with Jeep and it's a half a million dollar rig, how does he afford it, simple compare his prices with any of the companies that are doing business on the internet in the water softener arena, his prices are 25% more than anybody else's. He's also incorrect on many of his advice entries.
Electrical Forum discussions
Terry hired this guy by the name of "Joey Tedesco" to run this forum for a while, Joey decided to delete all the posting in this forum, and only after the outrage from many of his long time readers/posters did Terry get rid of this guy.
Bottom line, be careful of any advice you read in a forum, there is no control. And TerryLove's Forums are the worst of the lot because of Terry's attitude toward allowing the forum poster to advertise on his site, even though it is against his published:
"Terry Loves Plumbing & Remodel Forum Rules"
"Advertising: The purpose of Terry Loves Plumbing & Remodel Forums is to provide answers, not an advertising venue. Companies participating in a Forum discussion should provide specific answers to posted questions.."
