    Could only find a universal cap didn't buy it. Tested the orig cap found 82mfd. Figured I'd try
    removing the corrosion from the contacts/leads. Ran 15+min then shutdown. Changed the filter on
    the A/H ...

    A/C is misbehaving. Compressor/condenser is throwing the 50amp breaker at the house panel. It
    runs for about 8 minutes then breaks. If I immediately flip the breaker on, and re-start, each
    time the ru...

    Thanks for the clarification and confirmation. Reminded me I have a copy of Ching's BCI. Time
    for a refresher.Is it not worth the effort to, not only sister, but also level up the low
    joists so that y...

    thanks Nealtw, (sort of :)) Added Pix at bottom of this. This started with a burst shower head,
    progressed to tiling the shower wall, then all the fixture walls, and finally to the floor
    too.Going for...

    I want to remove the pictured lead drain. anyone suggest a pattern of bracing/framing that
    will allow for the new PVC to run into the castiron -- and still provide a solid base for
    plywood subfloor ...

    So, a rusted out shower head in a wall has resulted in a nearly 100% gut reno of a bathroom in
    a 120yo house. The bath is ~12'x7'. The floor is unlevel -- generally sinking a total of at
    least 1/4 to ...

    For all time, let it be known here:A simple hammer (tap(ping)) on the illustrious BG
    Flo-control solved the circulation issue. It kind of solved itself too-- I'd shut all the
    isolators (3 --2 @ return...

    I can't speak to _how_ you can solve the issue -- but my first reaction to the cork tape (and
    no disrespect at all) was that's way too sloppy for a professional --- and I can't imagine the
    requirement...

    One of my zones isn't circulating. Was fine a few days ago (zone not used constantly), been in
    service for 6 years. Being somewhat ignorant I replaced the cartridge in the Taco 007. no
    change. disasse...
