Thanks, Pete! So it won't fall off and flood my basement, just from the friction of the tubing against the drain spud? I guess I can believe that, the tubing does seem pretty secure, as long as it...

Hose clamp for Aprilaire drain tubing?

I just installed an Aprilaire 700 and I'm not sure how to secure the drain line. Unlike my previous house's Aprilaire 500, on this one the drain spud is molded into the humidifier housing so if it...

PJmax, I can't blame the company for being cautious. However, I can blame them for making it so difficult to do it the "right" way if they think it matters. It would be very easy for them to make a...

I'm not sure why that is the only way it could work. It's essentially a ball and socket joint, and a guy at my local electrical/lighting store said it should work even though Hunter says they won't...

I'm pretty sure it can pivot in any direction. Hunter seems to think it is less secure on a slope unless the opening is pointed up. I can see how it would be a problem if the opening was pointed...

Yes, the fan comes with a bracket for sloped ceilings. The problem is that Hunter says the bracket opening (that the downrod slips through) has to be oriented toward the peak, but my framing and fan...

Yeah, I was just thinking about the push in connectors. Thinking about the Wago 221 (newer style with levers). I assume it's ok to not use all of the holes/ports, since those only come in 2, 3 and...

As for no pre-twisting:

The wire nuts I'm using say pre-twisting is allowed but not required.

Everything I have seen about doing box offsets says that they are "air bends," with the handle end on the floor and the shoe and conduit in the air.

The bend I'm talking about is in the "run" of...

Furd, that makes me feel a little better.

Here's a crazy idea: as I said the "unbent" part of the EMT ends up being a little bit bent. Would it help to slip a piece of 3/4" black steel pipe over...

Yeah, I've watched that video and another one that's similar but uses the same Klein bender I have. Maybe I just have to keep practicing, but I am surprised at how badly my bends turn out. Thanks.
