Yeah some tools work well for some and not so much for others. I use my Recip saw alot for other things. Also , there was too much info in that last message from you Rugged! Although we just redid the bathroom and I had never thought of a Bidet! Maybe that will come.

You know how much toilet paper you use knowing how that disease works. It's very awkward at first, but it's like a mini-shower on demand and can make the reach around process obsolete. The ones with a dryer and warm water are top notch, I just haven't graduated to that level yet. It's coming!
Yeah, they say Chron's is from stress. It probably is the only disease I don't have from stress. I got shingles, does that count? Oh, yeah, my new resolution is to control the stress. :rolleyes::confused: Two girlfriends has it, and they have been managing the disease pretty well, by seeing a therapist. Mind over matter?
Nah the girlfriends are lucky. Stress does factor into it for sure, tho. But, being an auto immune disease it pretty much does what it likes.. when it likes. It took a ruptured bowel for them to diagnose it, REALLY bad that year was. She had it for about 20 years before then, and "it was all in the noggin" until then.
For now I think this thread has taken a 90 degree turn from where it started. :)
Rugged is auditioning to become the Toto Washlet Spokesperson.... :D
Rugged, why did you do that? ;)

Can't help it but I know quite a few people with this disease,
and they have a garbage can next to their toilet full of used toilet paper to keep the system from backing up. Disgusting.
There's a learning curve to using toilet seat bidets...but once you get used to a little squirt squirt between your legs, you'll find yourself coming home to use it when you have to resort back to traditional style, away from home.
Ha! This thread did take a turn...
Along with this renovation will come a new water heater and I have a few questions related to it. The current water heater is in a utility closet with the furnace. They both are on a raised floor for the return air vent. A vent has been mounted in the ceiling for combustible air. The pressure release valve has copper coming out of it and terminating into a small bucket. :(
A few questions:
1. Does the new water heater have to be 18" off of the raised floor?
2. What is the typical procedure for water heaters that have no drain in the utility closet?
3. There is an asbestos vent pipe right at the ceiling level. Should I abandon the rusted transition going into it you see below with something else from the flue hat? I've read that the asbestos transite pipes should just be left alone. Is that still recommended?
