My wife and I rented an insulation blower to add insulation in our
attic. When I got the unit home, I noticed it had remnants of tape on
the hose connection. I checked it out and it seemed to work fine. With
my wife feeding bags into the hopper and me up in the attic with the
hose, we proceeded to get the nasty job done. Working my way around the
attic, I noticed that the hose seemed to be caught, so I gave it a tug.
Then nothing was coming out, and finally I heard the machine stop. I
squeezed back downstairs to discover the downstairs covered in
insulation. After a whole day of cleaning, I figured out what all the
tape was for!
