  • My water heater shut down, found out in the shower - ugh! It's one of the new ones with electronic controls and the led was flashing 7 times. Googled that and found a utube by somebody speaking like they were from India which said something called a Flammable Vapor Sensor was the culprit and had instructions on how to reset it, great! And like the India guy said, the water was "cooking" after resetting it But it happened again so looked into swapping out the FVS and lo and behold found a post by someone who said the FVS could be fooled by paint fumes, and what was I doing lately? Painting some deck boards in my garage! No problems since I finished my paint job. Ain't the internet great?

      • So I'm working on a McMansion installing copper soffit and fascia (About 700 ln. ft. worth). These strange pipes and vents are everywhere. Turns out, they are some weird excuse for a fart fan in the bathrooms. Instead of just installing a fan, they installed multiple units that remove the air from the bath area, scrub it, eject it from the home, and bring in new air to replace it. Insane!! How much negative air pressure can you have from a bath fan?

            Probly heat exchangers on the fans. and if the fans are big enough, more air than some heaters and airconditioners.

                • Word to the wise. If you wear contact lenses and you take them out every night like I do, make sure you don't have any toothpaste on your finger tip when taking said lense out! You think habenero juice is bad on the eyeball? Try paste for the pearly whites!!!!

                      • When going onto a metal roof to clean a chimney wait till sun is up high enough to clear frost off all of the roof....

                          I feel for you for two reasons: 1) Frost on the roof making it dangerous. 2) Frost this time of year!
