Any idea why it happened in the first place? What did I do wrong?

Henry's makes a 2, 3, 4, and 7-year formulation. I bought the 7-year, so I guess that means it's more durable than the average...

Bummer, that's what I was afraid of. Thanks for the insight guys!

Maybe a stupid question though, but could I use the common wire from the hot water boiler/hydronic furnace? That does go to the...

Thanks pjmax. Awesome advice. That 3rd cable is a head scratcher. The flood light is too high up for a ladder and I had to lean over my roof to install it, so I wanted to do a "one and done" and...

OK, I finally got around to using my multimeter to test which wires are hot. Going from left to right, this is what I believe the wires are for. I've marked the voltage readings for anything...

You're absolutely right it's a non-contact tester. I guess I feel a decent degree of certainty with it because it reliably shows the first cable as hot only when switched by the single pole, and I...

Yes, there is a jumper from the single pole switch to the 3 way switch. My voltage tester indicates that the 2nd and 4th cables are hot leads though. They are controlled by 1 breaker which controls...

That's what I thought but I can't find the other matching switches, and frankly, even if there are matching switches I don't care if I lose them. Meaning, I'd be fine with converting these to single...

Haha, yes that is just a crapload of excess wire that the installers never bothered with. It's an eyesore but doesn't seem to be doing any harm as far as I can tell.

Still waiting for the issue...

NJ Trooper, you've got a great eye. That is indeed a 4th valve sitting horizontally on the pipe. This is a new house and I'm still getting my bearings. :) That valve is a Honeywell while the other...
