    I'd be a little worried after 5 years you feel over your head replumbing a house with pex. At least your honest with yourself.

    I would agree you are better off with other lines of sidework.

    It sounds like you better turn your AC off so you don't cost your grandchildren any more grief.

    On a side note, I'm not a fan of the humidty controlled fan idea. Although I do use an exhaust fan...

    1. I don't see a 3-way to the top of the stairs.

    2. I like more than one outlet in a bathroom, usually a double gang by the sink and one near the floor on the off wall.

    I know its late, but I would think the mxing valve would be plumbed before the solar panel. W would connect to the panel. H would be the return from the tank. C would be feed from the line coming off...

    I would guess true standby tank loss would be very low. I would guess most losses occur through the piping. The exterior of a modern tank is at ambient temperature to the touch.

    I installed a "watercop" after some flood problems. The main limitation is where and how many sensors you use. I also like the added benefit of having a switch to turn the water off. It is easy for...

    I don't think I would put much faith in the professionalism of "licensed guys", when they offer to violate their license and codes before the job is started.

    I've never had a problem with rabbits and herbs. At our house, they really like legumes, like peas and beans. These will not survive at all without fencing. One of the most annoying things we've had...

    Most cavity-nester bird groups (blue bird, purple martins, tree swallows) recommend the killing of Starlings. Starlings will often destroy eggs or kill nestlings of native cavity nesters. House...

    I've had the best luck with buying bags of individual seed types, rather than mixes. I get most stuff at our local wild birds unlimited. We also get too many undesireables if put out something with...

    The best solution would be to run a ground wire from the main panel to the sub panel. But since this is a dedicated circuit to a AC condenser I wouldn't be terribly worried about wiring it as...

    I would want 2 receptacles circuits available to the LR, although they need not be dedicated to only the LR. Another big power user in the LR is a vacuum cleaner, most use 12 amps. I have a central...

    Have you checked the valve for problems? Some valves have built in filters, which can become clogged. Does the valve have flow control and is it opened up?

    You don't mention your furnace type or your water heater type, but its not going to be much more efficient. You don't mention what your goal is, save money, add capacity, etc.

    I don't think you'll have any issues, PVC primer is usually a combination of THF (70%) and MEK (30%), while abs cement uses MEK (70%) and Acetone (30%) as the solvent. I don't see where a little bit...

    I don't think you have to design it for a 24 hr storm. Your house has survived 90 yrs with only surface drainage. If you saturate the drywell, the excess can be released to the surface were you deem...
