    So sorry to hear. I had a cracked sump problem that ended after two months hard work and many late nights. Hope you will be sorted and stable again soon. Oh yes I almost forgot, I am still fighting the GHA problem that was the result of the sump trouble.

    This question could be two fold ... It could be that you meant to ask what is GHA ... that is Green Hair Algae or you could be asking what is GHD because it means you have to buy your wife a very expensive hair straightener made by "GHD" for helping you mop up .....
