Re: Concrete Steps Repair

Use Sikaflex Concrete Fix. It is a ONE-COMPONENT, POLYURETHANE-BASED ELASTOMERIC SEALANT FOR CRACKS, GAPS AND JOINTS. Not easy to find, Here in Canada you can buy at Rona.
But This is a 100 year fix.

Yep,, try to carefully pry out the plug under the handrail,, about an inch from the wall. Then back out the Lag bolt 1 inch, Then inject a 2 part epoxy into or around the threads and then tighten. Replace the plug. Installers often skip the epoxy causing this issue only after 5-10 years.

Re: Circuit Tracers: What do you recommend?

I use the Amprobe BT-250 Circuit Breaker Tester. Works great even in medium size commercial
locations such as Shoppers drug marts or large variety stores like 7-11 etc.
