Re: winter power outage + well water

If this is a rural property that you winterize, you will definitely want to get the lines completely drained and also blown out with air. There are local plumbers in nearby towns that specialize in this because it's a seasonal thing they routinely do, and they also usually guarantee their work so if...

Everyone's talking about it. Luckily I have my groceries bought. The grocery stores are probably madness right now because of the double whammy of the snowstorm and Thanksgiving. Wish we got the holiday over with in October like you guys up there.

Re: Reduce Size of Old Work Box

I'm not even sure covering a box without an approved cover is even legal from a code perspective. So if you really want three-gang you'd have to cut out the four-gang and put a three in instead. But then you also can't abandon wire behind a wall if it's live (or even if it's not live it's not illega...

Re: Condensation on an ABS vent pipe in bathroom

It's just odd to me that ABS pipe could get that cold. ABS doesn't conduct temperature that well, or so I thought. This is a very unusual situation if it's condensation.

Re: Condensation on an ABS vent pipe in bathroom

So even if it is intermittent theres a possibility it's still a leak? The pipe will totally dry up some days to not even a bead of water which is why I find it hard to believe.

Re: Condensation on an ABS vent pipe in bathroom

It's weird to say the least. ABS doesn't conduct heat or cold very well anyway, and even if the pipe carried ice cold water it's hard to imagine it being so cold that condensation would form on it? I think the moisture you're getting may not be condensation but a small leak of some sort running alon...

Re: Under/Over-Cabinet Lighting

Tape is fine for over-cabinet lighting, but may look a bit garish under cabinet, because it's less diffuse. Sometimes the tape itself is in some sort of channel with a light diffuser.

As for the circuit, you could likely tie into some existing lighting circuit of the house?

Yeah that'd probably be the easiest sort of mid-term solution. Long term would be to eliminate the soffits over the hanging cupboard cabinets and see if the ceiling could be higher. Everyone wants high ceilings these days (8+ feet).

Good point , the wire lengths may limit the actually accessibility to work on it through the hole?
Yeah in that case, you move the hole for the light. Because you can't stretch the wire!
