GSKWY, your comments really have a very unpleasant, undiplomatic tone to them, at least on this end.  Do you reread them before you hit "send"?  You might want to, to ensure that they're actually communicating what you want to communicate.  This goes along with the lack of signature; do you prefer anonymity?

Silly me for questioning someone else's competence.  Especially someone who apparently considers himself imminently qualified to comment on anything.
 
But what then is the weird thing?  Post-tensioned tilt-up tanks?  They are not at all uncommon.
 
One might assume that being imminently qualified to comment on and evaluate something means one is very familiar with the method of construction and various options for repair.
 
But others proceed under the assumption that any idiot can do repairs.  The fact that a lot of them do generates a steady stream of income for the legal profession.
