I've been there with a loved one and Alzheimers.

Your relative is better off now. Her suffering is over.

Mourn the loss, but also remember to celebrate the life.

Thoughts & prayers are with you.

SouthEast IPC.

But I'm sure none of the codes are exactly "right". ;)

Seen a black one years ago before Barrett Jackson kind of ruined the muscle car world for the working man.

Man I wanted it but didn't have the $$$$.

Last I tried one was about 10 years ago, it had a carbon tooth that couldn't be sharpened - hit a nail and it's all over.

I haven't had this trouble with the Lenox one tooth or Milwaukee "Big Hawg" three tooth.

Just file them when necessary.

The Milwaukee set even comes with a small file for this.

The percentages of nail strikes are lower with any hole saw/toothed bit vs. a self feed. Less contact area for the cut.

Sidenote: I've been drilling out a remodel today. Floor is old hardwood. Underneath that, for whatever reason, is ANOTHER floor of hardwood ran the opposite way. Both have the angled cut nails. Then the subfloor.

So it's been a day of drill, drill, chomp, chomp, "S.O.B.!", naileater, and a cat's paw.

Right, we have a transition cement available as well, but aren't allowed to use it. Go figure.

Netflix is good by me...
Does anyone go to movie theaters anymore?

I heard a prediction last week on the radio someone made that movie theaters would disappear. I'm not sure I agree. I think they might have to adjust their business like anything else. There is still some good about the experience of it all that's missing in comparison to most home theater experiences.

Going out into the world and seeing this or that along the way is different than just watching at home on 6' screen with state of the art sound.

It is less appealing to do as often though as in the past in my opinion.

This article by Roger Ebert is a few years old, but still hits some points that apply for today.

The COPPER connects to the stop. Not the poly. The poly should not be connected to the stop.

Copper to stop.
Poly together with Tee/John Guest type fitting.

That's the way I remember it.

Posted: Fri Oct 04, 2013 11:46 pm 

I've installed the Toto Unifit, didn't care for it. Rough in a flange, then drill in and attach another flange.

Rough in dimensions are supposed to be rough in dimensions.

10", 12", 14". You measure off the studs/bottom plate to the center distance of the rough-in design. Theoretically.

Personally, I've learned to add .5 inch to every listed toilet rough-in and the finish has always ended up "reasonably" correct.

That is fine and dandy for new construction, however those of us in the service world know that 3 or bath remodels later that 12" rough might be 11 or less.

I'm also in the service world and have seen where the people remodeling and/or plumber screwed up the rough every way you can imagine.

My GF has started this thing where she wants us to go walking in the evenings....I told her I walk, crawl, spin, contort, etc. all day....so no...by the time I get home I am done.

Went out with someone that is a tri-athlete. Asked if I "Wanted to go on a 5 mile run?"

I said "Sure! You go in the kitchen, get a knife, and start chasin' after me down the street. Only way I'm running 5 miles..."

Told her I do "Plumbers Yoga". Over the pipe, under the duct. roll, stretch, slide. And I didn't need to run 5 miles.

Canada, Australia, any other countries outside the U.S.:

Are you reasonably satisfied with your healthcare system & costs associated with it?

Just curious of opinions from "real world" people.

(Not looking for any sort of healthcare/political debate.)



Thanks.

A little bit both ways. But honestly, mostly clockwise if looking from above. Only seemed to turn counterclockwise a few times very briefly.

Don't know what might be wrong with me seeing it the other way some. Might be too many floor joists to the head. :cry:

I also see...nipple...nipple...nipple.....

This might help explain it.

There is a link to the right at the top of the page for "This American Life" if you'd like to listen.

Takes you to another page and you click the chapters starting with "Prologue" in blue.

It can be nerve racking on a deep locate.
There's all that time, work, & dirt.
Tension mounts the deeper they go and not find anything.
Then there's a group of people just waiting to blame that guy with all of his electronic toy B.S. :lost22

A few of Rinnai's "Tank-Tankless" Specs:
Tank Capacity=40 Gallons
First Hour Rating=180 Gallons/Hour
Recovery 90 Degree Rise=89 Gallons/Hour
59,500-91,300 BTU/h
80% Thermal Efficiency

Phoenix's Comparable Specs (Model PH100-55:
Tank Capacity=55 Gallons
First Hour Rating=169 Gallons/Hour
Recovery 100 Degree Rise=115 Gallons/Hour
35,000-100,000 BTU/h
94.8% Thermal Efficiency

Numbers seem right? Or is someone playing with physics?

EDIT: I left out the degree rise from the table for the Phoenix model.
