Re: Hot stuffing box...

We just had a stuffing box installed. We were told that about 90 - 100 degrees farenheit was an acceptable temp. Or hot to touch but not so hot that you could not keep your hand on it. I can't remember if that was just for the breaking in period. Maybe I better find out....
Don't know how its going to work out as we are still in the yard! 1 more week.......
