    Back in November, the whole house was leveled by a huge explosion. Focus turned immediately to the HVAC contractor since the furnace was replaced days before. The lawsuit photos show the drip leg was disconnected, and laying on the ground. Wonder if that worked itself loose, or was left off completely?

    I can't imaging a furnace being used with the drip leg "off" and laying on the floor.
    Someone would have smelled the gas, and it wouldn't have taken "days" for an explosion to happen.

    That's what I thought. One person was killed, he was a friend of the homeowners, and was living in the BASEMENT at the time. So, yeah, it is hard to imagine.

    Maybe the "friend" used the drop leg as a stash for his favorite drugs.
