What internet technology are you using, DSL?

Cat5 is a 8-wire twisted pair cable. You have an RJ25 jack, which is 6 wires, which allows 3 plain telephone lines.

I agree, I'd just get a 1/8" plexi or lexan and use some kind of metal L bracket to hang it off the top. While it will bend in the middle, it'll take the brunt of anything that's thrown at it. None...

I've never had trouble with double NATs as long as they are on different IP address schemes. For example, they can't be both on 192.168.1.x.
I assume there's some minor delay going through another...

The drain does need to be vented, but it should be on the sewer-side of the trap. If there's no vent on the drain system, that could cause draining issues... but nothing quite like what you have...

Google Meet is very similar to Zoom. It's been around for years, but didn't get quite the attention Zoom did at the beginning of the pandemic, so most people now know Zoom.

Please don't just switch wires. You need to figure out the correct wiring for the plug you're using and wire both ends correctly.

I think the pilot assembly is your first course of action. They can get gummed up with debris. I have just replaced them in the past as they are about $15 or cheaper. You can probably try blowing...

My first guess is that only one leg of the 240v feed is connected. Typically, this is every other breaker in the panel. I'd measure across a 240v breaker (dryer, oven, etc). you should see 120v...

Yeah, I've never seen anything quite like that before either. I was thinking a floor drain, which as you mentioned, sometimes has a bypass around the trap to snake it, but I've never seen one as...

Height-wise, you can probably trim 3/4" - 1" off the top of the bend before installing the flange.

Another option is an offset flange. There are a few different styles, but here's one:...

Presuming the plug-in transformer is outdoor rated (which I assume it would be), you could get a short 12" extension cord and connect the transformer outside the bubble box.

It's probably a cleanout of some type. It could be for your main sewer, or could be a cleanout for a foundation drain. With a loose fitting cap, I would guess a foundation drain... but it's just a...

No, it's like a typical sump pump. Once the reservoir fills to a certain level, the pump goes on. The only difference is the pump is intended to pump more than just water. So if you wash your...

I agree with everything Pilot Dane mentioned.
Code-wise, you only need to protect the pipes with nailing plates where they go through framing members.

I agree with the others, removing and re-gluing PVC is usually ends up with a poor outcome.

I've never had any problems with dimmer reliability - it's more of whether they actually dim the LEDs or not. It depends on their design and construction. If they dim the LED bulbs reasonably well,...

Most transformers have a circuit breaker on them to handle shorts. During the aeration process, it could have created a short and tripped the breaker. Most are pop-out breakers, you press them back...

Around here, some houses have the meter in the basement next to the panel, it's odd, but seemingly not around here.

I'm not the concrete expert around here, but you're not doing anything structural, so the details aren't critical.

You can backfill with dirt or sand - and some of the old concrete pieces is fine...
