Great Goofs: Insulation Frustration

What's that tape for?

Insulation Frustration

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! - Chip Budde
