Even though I was told different

I do remember him explaining that in specific situations where
Oxygen would rise
And co2 would drop
No one in the room questioned this and I wish I would have
Even though the event may be far and few inbetween,
If it could happen, I'd keep it at eye level just in case
Especially if everyone is saying it don't matter where you put it

I'm looking into it
Because if he can prove to me why
i ll know he knows his *censored*

...he does...CO2 Would "drop"
...were talkin CO tho

So many other people have varying opinions
And seemed the have the science to back it up

Just spoke to Jim Davis
He said he wants his at eye level
Because its a monitor
And displays a given ppm and u need to see it

He kept telling me that u want it where your breathing
And a lot of what's in co
Is co2
And he's done tests where co2 pools from the floor upto wrist height
As for the correct height eye level is ok
But there could be a slightly higher level at the ceiling

He encourages everyone to look at co monitors
Made by nci
He says at eye level
It'll let u know long before u have issues
Mine alerts at 15 ppm
I'll post pics soon
