We had the water pump on the machine go and it was still under warranty so it was replaced and everything else works great. The repair guy said that the pumps were aftermarket ones th...

Re: Attic frost on north side problem

Attic frost on north side problem

I saw frost inside our attic today. I heard droplets falling. This is what I saw, pics attached.


We did have a brutally cold winter this year -45c in Winnipeg.

The frost is only on the north side and the south side is clear.

What can I do to fix this and get rid of the frost?

Re: FYI - Mobile POS device

I didn’t think of the higher cost work ($1,000 +). That gets to be pretty costly and can be the difference of offering a compatible price or charging more just to cover that 2.75%

Deciding on a Tool Box system

Before I buy another tool bag I figured its best to stop and start looking at a modular tool box system. Just because it would be nice to easily store the tools for transportation in my car (2010 Dodge Caliber) and be easily able to take all or a couple parts to where I need to do work. I also want ...

Question on AquaPex (Wisbro) vs SuperPex

I am accustomed to the use of SuperPex and I love it but when I saw some Shannon's video on Wisbro AquaPex (and I have seen it in newly built houses here in Winnipeg) I wanted to know which is better and why would someone choose one over the other?

Re: hot water tank options.

I'd imagine that gas fired ones have electronic igniters and controls, rendering them useless in a power outage as well. Ya good point. Hot water is not really a necessity in an outage though?

Re: hot water tank options.

One thing to remember to with the thankless is that if the power goes out then there is no hot water till the power is back on if you have electric that is.

I been considering one but it costs allot more then an anode rod and/or dip tube so its been a hard sell for me.

Re: LG All-In-One Washer/Dryer

Why are your hoses so high off the floor? The valves they can attach to are up high. The copper pipes were run outside the wall for some reason and the valves were up high so that hoses could be run along the wall and above the door to where the old washer as. I am guessing that it was done that wa...

We have used the washer for the past few days and so far so good. It only needs a regular 120v outlet. One plug for the main washer and the other for the pedestal washer. The wash cycle takes very little water to clean and takes normal time to wash. The drying cycle takes a long time to dry as it us...
