[Histonet] Reality Check

From:"Joe Nocito"

    I want to wish everyone back from the NSH meeting.  Hope you had a good
time.  Maybe I can attend next year.
    I have this issue that just won't go away and I would like your
    In the last three years, I've purchased 4 TBS waterbaths, two of which
the heating element went bad.  One was three years old, the other about two
years.  Now, I realize that TBS has a one year warranty on their equipment,
but shouldn't waterbaths last longer than 3 years? I paid over $1000 per
waterbath and they want $500 a piece to repair them.  I have seen Boekel,
Lab-Line and Fisher waterbaths that were older than me (we won't go there
ok?) Which is to say that I'm much older than 3 years.
    Has anyone else come across this problem?  I'm just waiting for the
other 2 waterbaths to breakdown.  I could see maybe one waterbath, but 2,
with the same problem.  I think the odds are just too high.  Am I like in
outer space or does this bother anyone else?  Maybe it's me.  I don't know.
Oh, as a last comment, we do not suffer from severe power surges either,
just in case someone would ask.  Take care and thanks again for your input.
