    First of all, we don't pull meters. That's a dying practice and isn't even taught anymore. Around here we don't have outside disconnects. I'm not going to go searching for a panel in a large fire...

    It looks to me like somebody's first pex job. The advantage to pex is that you can run continuous supplies that snake around obstacles without having to use lots of fittings. If they had done like...

    Some light fixtures serve as the junction box themselves and don't need a box in the wall. You can either replace the light with one that works the same, put in a pancake box if it needs to be...

    I ended up getting an atrium grate. The hoses will be secured well above the pipe.

    Good. That was essentially my plan but using a floor drain grate to secure the drains to. Thanks.

    I didn't think about the chance of a backup. I can add a new trap off of the kitchen sink drain in the closet opposite the sink where there all of the appliances are located to keep the trap out of...

    I'm replacing a corroded copper drain line in my crawlspace that services the kitchen sink up above. Currently, the AC, humidifier, and water softener all connect together and drain into a hole...

    I couldn't tell you what brand is better as I've never seen a Gentex, but Kidde is pretty well known. As for types, you want both or combination units as they both operate differently, detecting...

    If I can use NM, I'm not going to the trouble of installing EMT. The only way that would make sense is if the run to the switch box was exposed and then went to the fan in the wall. Use your...

    There is no reason not to, you just don't need to. If you already bought one, its fine to use. The only thing different really is that the prong openings can accommodate a 20 amp plug. But I've...

    Your layout and where the wire comes into the room would determine the best way to run the wires. Code states bathroom receptacles require a 20amp GFCI circuit. You can feed the lights with this...

    I would replace every five years. If they are older than that, they probably don't work as well as they should. Its really not something you want to chance. As for the heating system, unless the...

    The layout looks good. The issues I see are first of all the fernco's attaching it to the galvanized. Above ground most places and everywhere here, they must be shielded couplings. Second the...

    Chicago is EMTland, not Chicagoland. My house is about an hour north of Chicago and 30 minute south of Wisconsin. Here and a lot of other cities are all NM besides multi-family and commercial. ...

    You could always use a piece of sill sealer in between the duct and the top plate. It would uncouple the two. Then screw it in place. Screws are easier overhead anyway.

    I see no problem with your plan as far as the concrete work goes. Quick set is fine as long as you work fast enough. I don't think you'll need the mesh as long as you get some rebar in there and...

    Get yourself a closet auger. It has a bend and a protective sleeve. Next step if that doesn't work would be to pull the toilet and either try to dislodge whatever is in the toilet from the bottom,...

    I take it to read that you need (2) 20A receptacles, with both according to 210.12 (B) being AFCI. This is if you are actually on the 2008 NEC. Lots of places have not adopted the AFCI portion of...

    While I'm sure the roof most likely didn't cause the fire, it could certainly contribute to its damages. Two layers of roofing will just hold the roof together more and keep a fire from...

    Since this is for your garage, do you really want drywall all the way to the floor? I'd be worried it would get damaged at the bottom with the type of stuff you typically store in a garage. My...

    I just put one of those in today actually and you are correct about it having a restrictor at the hose to arm connection. I drilled a half inch hole in my two regular shower heads so I don't see why...

    Much better. Did you tie the curb to the slab with some sort of pins or is it just poured on top of it?
