In this episode, John and Kyle discuss the extreme weather conditions experienced
during the summer of 2023 in North Texas. They explain how the combination of a 100-

moisture around homes to protect against foundation damage and broken drain pipes.
They also discuss the potential consequences of neglecting these issues and offer
solutions such as using soaker hoses and watering systems.
