    Similar situation to that noted in the thread: However, I would like to consider upgrading my Intermatic mechanical pool pump timer to an electronic one, and if not too expensive, potentially one which can be remote-controlled from my...

    Toilet Leak - Wax Ring Picture

    "The attached picture shows the wax ring that was in place. It obviously leaked from above the flange, but I can't find an imperfection that would point to a leak." Picture?

    Pathway gaps... Boy! Did I ever screw up...

    Ready-mix motar mix also appears to lighten up considerably. Is there a way to make it darker? I've used this to do some tuck-pointing in the past and have had the same issue. By the way, your walkway looks great.

(Although I like the dog, and not having him around would free up considerable more room in the dog house for me, if he became...

    Matching mortar... Other alternatives?

    I suppose I could have posted this under "decks and patios" but the concern I have is focused on the mortar between the bricks of my patio, and what other alternatives may be out there. The bricks at the gateway between my patio and the pool deck have settled over the past 17 years. The...
