    Low water pressure

    Thanks for the replies! My apologies, I'm a bit of a novice when it comes to plumbing. I'm not sure if there is a bypass value on the softener. It would seem logical that there would be, but I'm not sure where it would be located on the softener or elsewhere? The strange thing that seems to...

    Live Edge shelf recommendations

    Of course I'm okay with my installer doing the best he can. The contractor I use has done great work for me and I trust his work. That wasn't my original question. If you have some recommendations great.

I've attached...

    Level glass top on stone mantle

    I've planning on putting a beveled glass top on a stone fireplace mantle. Since the stone is uneven, I was looking for a good way to make sure the glass sits on the mantle level and does not slide. I was looking at these clear bumpers on Amazon...

    Need suggestions and help on how to brace t-posts

    Thanks for the reply. The t-posts are still in the ground (crushed granite) as I haven't pulled them up yet. I was going to go to Lowe's, Home Depot or a Tractor store today to see what they had in regards to a tool to use to pull up the t-posts and what bracing options I can find. So, although...

    Prevent t-post from being pulled down

    Is there anchor for the type of t-post I'm using? I was searching online and I see several different brands for wood posts. Also, will the wire strain not pull the anchor as well or will it hold the t-post without any issue?

    I am fencing around a garden bed trying to prevent deer from getting in and destroying the bed. We have a pretty severe deer issue in the neighborhood and it has been a struggle to prevent the landscape from getting completely trampled and eaten by the deer. I'm putting up t-posts around the...
