I replaced the handles with generic ones with the square caps with the allen head bores several years ago. Now the brass is very tore up causing the handle to slip, and the stem needs a complete replacement. I have the 3 knobs; hot, cold, and shower. Is this difficult? Any advice would be appreciated, and I already know those generic caps are junk!3 AnswersDo It Yourself (DIY)10 years ago

It looks like a drain pipe, but it is sticking out of the wall through the drywall. It is about one foot above the right hand corner of the sink. It is a threaded pipe about inch in diameter and sticks out of the drywall about 1/4 inch. What is it or what would need a drain pipe 1 ft above the sink? It looks original to the house which was built in the 1950s. I was going to cut the pipe and drywall the hole, but I think I will just cover with a blank electrical plate for now.3 AnswersOther - Home & Garden1 decade ago
I recently installed a textured ceiling with a roller and diluted joint compound. The color is white, and the appearance looks great.
Do I really need to primer/paint this ceiling? I was told that if I do not paint it will crumble off into dust, is this true?4 AnswersDecorating & Remodeling1 decade ago
I have a total of 4 department store credit cards I would like to close, but I am getting ready to refinance my house. No balance is owed any of these accounts and I have had each account for ~4-5 years. I need wait until July for the re-fi, because there was a collection account on my credit report that was mistaken and is in the process of being removed. This collection account pushed my average credit score to below 700, which effected my interest rate which defeated the purpose of the re-fi. Should I wait until before or after the re-fi to close these accounts?5 AnswersCredit1 decade ago

The tire wall says max PSI 51, and I filled them up to 50 PSI. It was roughly 75 F when I filled the tires. Should I decrease the amount of air in the tires due to them heating while driving??? Decrease pressure when it gets hotter outside???
Again I want maximum safe tire pressure.3 AnswersOther - Cars & Transportation1 decade ago

How do I know if my ceiling light fixture box in Master bedroom can support the weight of a ceiling fan?
This is a home built in the 60's. The current ceiling box looks like if has a 1" bolt through it threaded tightly to a board with a nut. All other bedrooms in this house already have fans. So I don't think it is a large jump to think that this box will be able too. The box is also very stable when I pull on the fixture set screws.5 AnswersDo It Yourself (DIY)1 decade ago
Does a geothermal heat pump system have the heating/cooling capacity to work in a poorly insulated home?
Would you have to supplement a newly installed geothermal system in an older home with an AC unit or heater? I was thinking about getting a system like this but live in an old home that has very poor insulation.4 AnswersEngineering1 decade ago
I went up there and to install a bath fan and it was ridiculously hot. There are currently grated vents at each end of the attic, and grated vents about every 10-15 feet under the gutters. There is also about 1 ft of blown in insulation. I was thinking of installing a gable fan connected to a thermostat. If I were to do this, at what temperature should I set the thermostat? And should the fan blow air inward or outward? I live in Louisville, KY.5 AnswersMaintenance & Repairs1 decade ago
Here is a basic diagram-
4 wires w/ white, black, and ground
(Light 1 WI IB) (Light 2 WI IB) (Load WI IB) (Line WI IB)
(BI IB Switch 1) ( BI IB Switch 2) ( WI IB GFCI-Line) (WI IB GFCI-Load)
The trick is to balence the W to B after the GFCI so it doesn't trip and wire so that the each switch is independent. Everything I have tired either trips the GFCI or one switch turns on both lights. .2 AnswersDo It Yourself (DIY)1 decade ago
I bought and planted four 3 gallon Hydrangeas last Sunday. Today all four of them are showing signs that something is wrong, some worse then others. Leaves are curling up from the tip and sagging to where the underside of the leave is showing. Some are showing browning at the tips. They were watered on Sunday, by a thundershower on Tuesday, and again today. I planted them in Miricle Grow soil and made sure the hole was well drained. They also receive full sun for the majority of the day.
I have always been told to trim off dead or dying leaves/branches of flower brushes, so I trimed the sagging sections off. They are relatively large bushes and the remaining looks to be in good health.
Am I over/under watering? Is their any product I can use to save them if this continues? Any recommendation would be appreciated.7 AnswersGarden & Landscape1 decade ago
