• Electric water heater not getting power or shuts off.?

    I have a 50gal electric water heater from 2014. I get power from the junction box to it but when hooked up it does not power it on. The breaker is not tripped either. The heating elements are brand new as I just replaced them a few months ago. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Should a housing developer replace my taps??

    My wife and I have just (three weeks ago) purchased a new build property.

    My wife and I have just (three weeks ago) purchased a new build property. The bathroom and downstairs toilets have these snazzy shallow sinks and some fancy taps which gush the water out in a jet that is roughly the width and depth of a £2 coin. This is all very attractive. The problem is if you run the tap at anything more than a quarter of it's full pressure, the water splashed right out of the sink. Yes, we could get by with just using them gently but really???? It's a pain! Also, they don't mix the hot/cold water properly when we run them slowly ...so it's either scolding or cold. Not good! So we've come to terms with the fact that this won't do and we'll have to replace them. Should we expect the developer to do this for us?? Could I apply for a CCJ against them to cover the cost if they refuse (I expect they will). Any advise will be much appreciated!!!

  • Did I install this toilet right? What are the chances of a toilet leaking at the base with a jumbo wax ring if you put it in right?

    I put in a toilet, and followed directions, videos, and books. It was just me so I placed a jumbo wax ring on the flange, then placed the toilet down on the bolts, It lined up perfect, then I applied pressure. using it multiple times and so far so good.

    I put in a toilet, and followed directions, videos, and books. It was just me so I placed a jumbo wax ring on the flange, then placed the toilet down on the bolts, It lined up perfect, then I applied pressure. using it multiple times and so far so good. I'm just wondering in my mind though since I did not put the wax ring on the toilet first and I couldn't really see anything but the bolts lining up, then will it be good? How would I know if there was a small leak around the wax ring? It is a tile floor and I checked underneath and didn't see any signs of water but I'm figuring the wax is so thick it shouldn't be an issue I just wish I could see underneath so I can line the whole up perfectly but all I did was line it up with the bolts like the video said to do

  • Is there a way to power a 120 voltage outlet with a 277 voltage line?

    Best answer: There are three wires going into that box from the main circuit breaker box. Two may be black and one should be green. The green is ground. The other two are connected to a 2-pole circuit breaker back in the main circuit breaker box. They are both hot wires in their current configuration. Turn off the 2-pole... show more
    Best answer: There are three wires going into that box from the main circuit breaker box. Two may be black and one should be green. The green is ground. The other two are connected to a 2-pole circuit breaker back in the main circuit breaker box. They are both hot wires in their current configuration. Turn off the 2-pole circuit breaker then remove the two wires from it. Wrap one of them with white electrical tape and then connect it to the common buss with all of the other white wires inside the main circuit breaker panel. Take the other wire that was on that 2-pole breaker and connect it to a 20 Amp single pole breaker.

    Determine which wire is which on the other abandoned pool box end. Wrap white tape on the determined white common wire and connect it to the common white/silver screw side of your new receptacle. Connect the hot wire that is coming from the 20 Amp single pole breaker to the hot brass screw side of your receptacle. Connect the ground wire to the ground green screw connection of your receptacle. OH by-the-by, the new receptacle should be a GFCI type receptacle since it is outdoors.

  • Would this hole cause burglars to enter?

    Best answer: Depends on the size of the hole and its location. Rats, mice or birdies are probably more of an issue than burglars.

  • What s the best way to clean main sewer line pipes??

    So every year once a year the house my husband and I are renting has to get its main sewer line cleaned. If not, the basement will flood with water. At first we were like "okay no big deal, it s $100 a year to get the pipes snaked by Mr. Rooter." But now we are thinking about buying our house so we had Mr. Rooter put a camera down into the pipes and see what the issue is. Well as it turns out these two HUGE trees in our front yard are causing the issue. Their roots have grown into the pipes and are causing major blockage. The Mr. Rooter guy said their solution would be to clean out the roots with an extreme power washer and then put in a permanent liner. This liner will serve as the new pipe and is supposedly so strong that the trees s roots can t penetrate it. IT has a 50 year warranty as well. But it will cost $10,000!!!!! So my landlord is thinking about just paying to have the trees removed and the pipes power washed because that would be cheaper. However the pipes have shifted, in some spots at least two inches, and I m worried about toilet paper getting stuck and still clogging and then maybe after we buy the house then we have to pay an arm and a leg to somehow fix the pipes, even its that were 10+ years from now. So does anyone have experience when it comes to such issues??? Should we just hand over $10,000 or just take away the trees and hope for the best??? Thanks in advance!!!

  • Why do my light bulbs keep exploding?

    Best answer: It may be wired incorrectly so that there is too much voltage on the socket. Light bulbs typically will explode if there s way too much voltage applied to it.

    Here's what to do to check it: Screw in a light bulb adapter (one that lets you plug a cord into it) https://www.lowes.com/pd/Project-Source-...
    Then use an AC volt meter and put the leads into the plug slots on the adapter to measure the voltage. You will probably find 220 volts there. Get an electrician to fix it!

  • Frozen water in plastic bottle?

    Best answer: Firstly, liquids expand when placed in the freezer and so if you had filled the bottle up it probably would have split when it froze.

    When a plastic container comes out of a container it is extremely brittle and if it fell out of the freezer when already frozen it would have broken or shattered.
