  •  BTW - here is what I wrote about each reactor (1+ / 0-)

    Unit 1:

    The reactor vessel and associated piping appear to be fully intact.  Were this not so the reactor would not be able to retain the water being added and there would be unexplained pressure drops.

    Unit 2:

    The reactor vessel and associated piping seem to be intact here as well.  There was a brief time when they had trouble maintaining water level increases but that was apparently resolved as a valving issue.

    Unit 3

    The reactor vessel and associated systems appear to be intact and reactor water level is able to be maintained.

    Please explain exactly where I am wrong here ...

    Are the reactor vessels intact or are they not?

    If they are not, please explain how you know this other than by your interpretations of a yellow block on a chart.

    You are confusing their concerns about the status of the construction materials with an assessment of the system itself.
