I am very impress with myself! Yes, I did my 3-car garage floor..I was quoted close to 3k for paint on my floors!!!

I gotta say that the prep work was the hardest but not worth 3K..but then again my garage is only 15years old.

Love being a homeownerClick image for larger version

Changing a breaker?

I currently have a 30 amp breaker that keeps tripping. Not all the time, kinda goes in spells where it will trip every 5 minutes or so.
I am in the process (next day or 2) of changing said breaker with another 30 amp. My question is, can I change it to a say 45 amp? Would that screw up anything?

I am not very experienced at electricity, so any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance!

When main breaker is off, I have 3-4 live circuits anyway.

I'm having trouble with 4 separate circuits, at the same time, suddenly going dead and usually in a few minutes they are live again. The circuits involved are single circuits. Washing machine, both kitchen receptacle circuits, and the clock in the range yet the burners do come on. Possible the burners are only live with 110. Most recent testing was this..With the main breaker off, these prementioned circuits were still live. Does this mean I have a bad main breaker?
