Post: RE: Another wiring question

No comment on the wiring, but what are you doing for a pond pump and how big of a pond? Is this pump for aeration? I have a 1/4 acre pond and want to put in a fountain for aeration and am resear...

Everything I've seen, even in warm climates, has a separate slab for the garage/carport and any patios.

Post: RE: half inch drop in 22ft drain line

Outside shower? Only grey water? Dig a drywall and be done. Don't connect to the house drain. Heck, drain into the yard.

Post: RE: epoxy garage floor DIY?

I did the floor in the last house's empty garage. I used Rustoleum's 2 part product. Came out very nice and looked good 15 years later when we sold it. But it was a lot of work. I chose to not do ...

I think I'd do a vinyl skin. No mess to clean up. For a cabin, see if you can find a camo pattern.

If this was my house, I'd delete the door and any framing back to the side walls and build a cabinet that slides into the space. Drawers below. Doors above for hanging stuff. Maybe small doors way ...

Post: RE: Using grey PVC For Sprinkler

I would glue white pvc or black poly to it and pull it through. The grey would probably work though.

90 exceeds my need and there will be no safety issues. I do need to get back in the attic and elevate the last 20 ft of cable off the insulation though.

I've been looking for a 90 amp Homeline breaker now for months. Looks like my Lowes finally has one I can order. It is supposed to be here in a week. Hope it works. Right now, I just have a 60 amp...

Post: RE: PVC pipe crack

Since you have those grey unions on all the valves, I'd just replace the whole thing. While it is possible to ream out the pipe inside the 2nd Tee so you can replace the 1st tee, you can't get the dr...

Post: RE: PVC pipe crack

Need a broader view. As a minimum, that tee on the right has to go. I'd not trust a repair. Beyond that, no clue without a better picture. If you buy the tool, you can ream out pipe from fitting...

Post: RE: Anybody use "811" successfully?

Here they are prompt. 2 or 3 days, but say they have 2 weeks. However, the Telcom says we don't have service. (AT&T) And the electric company doesn't participate, so you call them separately.

Sell it "as is" and run away. You probably have slab leaks. That will necessitate abandoning the in-floor heat and needing to add a furnace. No sense putting money into it as you can't break even. ...
