    I've heard that recommendation told to me countless times. But I think is was in the context of
    clearing the drain line in general, not to unclog a toilet.To close out my original problem
    which starte...

    Thanks. I'll do some monitoring of the defrost cycles to see if it's related. Just one of the
    many issues I have with this fridge. Not a happy camper.

    I've noticed that my side by side refrigerator's temperature varies up to 10 degrees or more at
    times. I use a dial temp gauge which sits in the same area to observe this. I notice no pattern
    as to wh...

    I have some muriatic acid, which I'm told can work. The question is; how much and how do I use

    Hello,My main drain line is starting to back up when draining large amounts of water into it
    (washer or bathtub). Is there an effective drain cleaner I can pour into my basement floor
    drain? I'd like ...

    Thanks. I checked out hammer drills and out of my budget for this use. I used my 3/8" drill and
    masonry bit. I used a 1/4" bit w/same size lead anchors into the mortar. They fit in loosely. A
    couple j...

    Although a great idea, mounting a separate post is not an option for a couple reasons;A
    sidewalk runs adjacent to the wall (which is actually the garage wall),and a downspout runs
    w/in inches of the e...

    Hello,I have a gate which adjoins the side of my house, with the latch side against my brick
    exterior wall. When installed several years aqo, the contractor butted a 2x4 against the brick
    to hold the ...

    Looks like a concrete foundation. Now that I think of it, the majority of cracks happened
    during a relatively short period of time, and may speak to the drought we had in CO over a
    period of several y...

    Hello,I have a 1962 brick ranch with full basement. As I was considering its purchase 10+ years
    ago, I noticed a crack in the living room drywall which ascended up the wall and half way
    across the cei...
