Maybe my hearing just got better, I don't know. But are there any general principles on what makes hot water systems quieter or louder? It seems like recently I can hear "white noise", water running...

Thanks, that's at least something.

I'm curious about what's going on inside, why this is an issue. The wine fridge, maybe 5 months old, we brought home laying down (sorry, we don't own a Lark...

The only humidity reading I get is from a decorative weather instrument set I got as a gift 30 years ago and probably not accurate then, nor now; but it has always given a RH reading of well over...

The iron/concrete interface -- ugh!

Was visiting the mother-in-law (age 91) at her 1955 house, and is has one of those concrete front "porches" with iron railing set right into the concrete. Noticed that one vertical post had rotted...

None of that really helped, guys. Anyway, I simply went to Amazon, they have (surprise) options. Got a nice 4-drawer cabinet by Vaultz, and a few hundred sleeves, and everything fits in < 1/2 the...

Keggerator run-on

I bought a used U-Line (I'll dig around and look for a model #, if it's germane) keggerator from a friend dirt cheap; he had never run it, after buying it he decided what he really wants is something...

Thanks, zip2play, but I don't think I want to risk that as this is to correct any imperfections in the board joins in a new beadboard ceiling. So far, I have not liked anything I've tried (tempted to...

(B) Paintable in 7 to 14 DAYS? Really? That slows things a bit.
