    I'm a bit of a house geek, quite interested in how and why things are done, a little less on why weren't they done following the "rules".

  1. This has been a most enlightening thread! Glad you got it working!
  2. Plastic barbed hose fittings ( I believe they are PVC) rated for around 75C and 75 PSI. Didn't insert the elbow fully. But look at how awesome that pipe coming through the floor looks!
  3. The CDC and other sources recommend tempering the water at the point of use. Here, the tempering valves are typically located in the master bathroom and protect the bathrooms only, with no tempered water at the kitchen. There are always compromises in a home. I think a little money for safety is a good thing.
  4. Our province has education departments in each of the universities. In only one university one, you have to successfully complete a practicum course that actually puts you in a real classroom (acting somewhat like a teacher's aide), before you are allowed to join the faculty of Education and begin the path towards becoming a teacher: The other universities teach you you for four years and then throw you out into the teaching world. The different percentage of graduates from each the different schools that are still teaching after just two years reveals the logic of exposing university students to primary school students and classrooms, before the University invests in the student, and before the student invests the time and money in a career that doesn't match their perceived or remembered idea of what a teacher is/does. Do ride alongs / job shadowing before you commit to the glossy school brochures and promises.
  5. I've been in some ugly crawlspaces and always exit promising myself I will buy a krawl tractor. I've done some pretty bendy moves to get into and/or crawl through an attic. My knees have not always been happy with me, but I've never needed yoga to improve my flexibility. I never miss the chance to get up on a roof when its safe to do so, and would never consider the roof inspected if I hadn't touched it with my own hands. They don't yet have a drone that can lift up the shingles and see the nailing pattern. I commend you on your pursuit of training, ride-alongs and a mentor.
  6. I've enjoyed Mike Lamb's submissions and have been inspired to submit my own. Maybe I'll even make some more...
  7. I'm guessing they wouldn't have to pay interest if the judgement was overturned?
  8. So I have to ask about the title of this thread.... Cause I don't get it....
  9. I got called to do a pre-sale inspection on a home and didn't ask enough, or the right questions, for suffiecient details to allow me to properly price the inspection. At this for more than ten years and still learning, but that's another story.... When I was in the garage I looked over and wondered if I had bitten off more than I could chew.... til I realized that this was just an over-designed irrigation system control and fortunately not included!
  10. That is captivating. Good eye, and good skills.
