Red face I can be a moron sometimes

:o
Ok, so I did not mention that I did not read the directions on wiring the AFCI breaker. I have wired one before that worked fine so but it was at least 6 months ago and not in this panel.

Tried a few things

Took off black wire from AFCI and put it into a spare, non-AFCI breaker. Overhead light worked! No trip.

Hooked a dedicated circuit that powers only a microwave to the AFCI. The AFCI tripped...

New breaker is tripping me into madness

Pulled out old AL wiring and replaced with 12 ga Romex without removing much drywall. Circuit begins with AFCI breaker in subpanel and 2 wire goes to switch box. Three switches in box, two for...

Smile Sub panel feeder and conduit sizes

I want to make sure I installed the right sizes for wires and AL flex conduit. I installed a subpanel that will eventually carry most of the smaller loads of the house.

I have a 200 amp main...

Shower wall & ceiling joint

There was paper tape that joined the drywalls at the wall and ceiling of my old shower, but now I have removed the shower walls and replaced them with 1/2" Hardibacker to bare studs. The ceiling...

Same noises

Our Socal house was built in 1968 and they used drywall. It pops all the time, mainly at night and most noticeably when there are big temperature swings. I am curious if the engineer has any...

Bingo!

You guessed right. There is one joint that happens to be right where my shower ends and the wall begins. If I have one row of tile over this joint, or even more rows of tile, could it be a problem?

Joint compound with Hardi

I attached Hardibacker to the bare studs of my 1968 master bath. Where the tile is not going, in other words, where there will be just a plain wall, I have used drywall joint compound and fiber mesh...

Top coat sticks to flat paint?

I have a lot of walls that I will have to patch for various reasons. The pattern of the top coat texture seems to be from a roller perhaps or a brush. I have tried several times to make the same...

Question Re-do Hardibacker?

Ok, I think I screwed up. I installed 1/2 inch Hardibacker on the studs in my shower. The plan was to then waterproof the whole thing with Redgard. Here's the catch. I watched the Hardibacker...

30 feet

How does the jumper help prevent electrocution? Isn't 30 feet of water pipe buried in the ground enough? Here's some more fuel to the fire:

Why?

I have done some searching on the web about jumping the water meter. It makes sense when the meter is in or near the house and the pipe is not in the ground for very long before it loses its ability...

Jump the water meter?

Ever since I got a rough inspection on part of my home re-wire project, I have wondered about the bonding of the water main pipe. Here is my situation. The water meter is about 25 feet from the...

Hot mop: what say you?

Two friends of my wife have just had their showers updated and in both cases they used "hot mopping". This is happening in Southern California.

It seems odd that in one case a general...

Thanks!

Great replies from all. I was thinking I could paint the hardibacker just like drywall, but as suggested, the difficulty in handling and the extra seams makes it too difficult to use instead of...

Hardibacker vs. paperless sheetrock

I am getting ready to put my walls back on the wood studs and then it hit me: why not put hardibacker everywhere? I was planning on using hardibacker for the shower enclosure and then the paperless...

Suggestions?

So no one has replied to Joed's comment which is too bad because I think it is really valid. I am concerned because the inspector specifically said all outlets in the garage had to be GFCI.

Another protecting wire in attic question

Ok, so I've already run my wires this way, but I just want to confirm. To make a long description short, there are no places where one could step on the Romex, mainly because I have it stapled to a...
