Re: Baseboard Heating Slat Misaligned

Fixed it. Just slid it out, realigned it and slid it back in. Thanks for responses.

Re: Baseboard Heating Slat Misaligned

No, that's not the problem. It seems as if the slat itself is not locking into the exposed metal part.

Re: Sewer Gas Smell in guest bath

This happened to me in my home. All you have to do is run the water in the shower/sink for about a minute and flush the toilet every month so water in the p-traps remains. Otherwise the water in the drain evaporates, allowing vapors from septic system to backup into the house, causing the stink.

Re: Grouting behind sink not lasting

After heating it with blow dryer, just peel it off and reapply?

Re: Grouting behind sink not lasting

The counter is quartz. Will heating it harm the surface?

Re: Bulbs on chandelier dark after only a few hours

Why 40W over 60W? We had 40W in our dining room and they weren’t bright enough. LEDs are amazing, but they have a white plastic base which looks corny on a chandelier.

Got these bulbs from Home Depot. Maybe that’s the problem right there...

Bulbs on chandelier dark after only a few hours

Hi,

Had a chandelier installed in the spot where a ceiling fan used to be. No dimmer on switch. 60 W bulbs, new, which are the max allowed on the chandelier. After about 5 hours use, some of the bulbs have become black. What gives? These are regular, incandescent, non-LED bulbs...

Grouting behind sink not lasting

Hi,

I've had the grouting behind my sink re-done twice, and it looks good for about a month before it starts to deteriorate. Why doesn't it last? Is my contractor using cheap caulking?

Fixing gash in wooden molding

Our plumber created this gash in our entryway molding. What’s the best way to repair this? Are there wood fillers available?

Strange sight on shower grout

Hi,

Does anyone know what this is on my shower grouting? It's been on the floor for about two weeks. Doesn't look like mold to me, and is not coming off with Lysol with Clorox in it. Tried rubbing it out with a Q-tip too, but that also did nothing. Annoying!
