Plaintiff-appellee, Penstan Supply, Inc., had sold plumbing supplies to defendants-appellants in 1977 for use by said defendants in plumbing work in the Johnstown area following the July 1977 flood.
Following the non-jury verdict exceptions were filed, briefed and argued pursuant to the provisions of Pa.R.C.P. No. 1038.*fn1
