    No, the moisture trap goes between the pump and the releaser. Any moisture to get thru the releaser gets stopped before it gets into the vacuum pump, it is to protect the pump.

    Get more quotes. It was 25 years ago, but I used to do siding, insulation and replacement windows. That price is about 9x what we got to do 34 windows in one house in 1992. In another big job we did...

    I also didn't get one. I heard they were just taking a sample and prorating from that. Seems like a faulty way to do it, especially if the pick the wrong ones to poll.
