  We have a Water Alarm Device behind the refrigerator, under the kitchen sink, under the bath basin and behind the washer machine.                        We purchased these dvices last year. They are battery operated; and available from a big box store. We purchased the Water Alarms in New Braunfels Texas at Home Depot. Let me tell you they work. This morning the Water Alarm went off just as Ceil was walking into the house. The sound was coming from the kitchen so she quickly went and disarmed it. She said the sound was deafening but did what it was suppose to do....a small leak. I was able to do the repair myself with my trusty wrench. Just think how long that little leak would leak without the alarm notifying us that there was a problem. Definitely a YES to purchase. Very affordable ...

Why wouldn't you want to buy a home in Sequin, Texas, after-all, it's the home of the World's Largest Pecan!     Texas-Size Pecan - Because everything is bigger and better in Texas! The huge nut on the Courthouse lawn is a popular place for taking photos. Made of concrete but looking quite realistic, it honors a major local industry. Crops can reach up to 3 million pounds of pecans, making this county one of the nation's leading producers. Guadalupe County growers helped to pioneer the now-popular nut, which Spanish explorers encountered in this area hundreds of years ago. Some of the earliest pecan orchards were planted in nearby river bottoms, and local specimens were used in upgrading cultivated varieties. The Guadalupe Valley Pecan Growers Association, founded here, is one of the ol...
