    Gymschu - my bathrooms not quite 50 years old but it needed some work - okay it needed a lot of work. I wanted to redo everything in there from the floors to the tub to the vanity....... I came across an awesome site after doing a lot of searching and research, maybe it can help you in your future DIY projects. I;m new to this site so thought I'd share. Good luck with the bathroom.

    Septic replacement

    How often will it have to be pumped out?
    I know that depends on usage?

    Septic replacement

    3000 gallon is a standard size for a holding tank for a two bedroom house. Tank is solid concrete. There are no issue with the tops caving in. They tell you a shouldn't drive on them but I heard about one guy who parks on top of his every day.

    Man, that is the biggest tank I have ever seen. Hopefully it isn't easy for the top to cave in like some I have seen.

    Unknown tool

    Did he ever do any welding? It looks like it might attach to a gas canister or something.

    sump pump pit

    I see no one else has posted on this question yet, so I might as well offer my two cents.

    Normally a sump pump will activate/turn itself on, when the water level gets high enough around the pump. There should be a float or switch that be activated as the water rises. As it pumps it sucks the water into the pump and pumps it upward, out of the house, and either into an underground drain pipe in the yard or just onto the grass. If you look at how it's set up you may be able to tell from the pvc pipe where its going to. I suppose it's possible that someone's hooked it up to pump downward and straight into the drainpipe, but I've never heard of that being done before.

    What makes you think it's draining out the bottom? Can you provide a picture? Also, is this in the basement, or, if the house is on a slab, is the sump pump on the first floor?

    You might want to post this on the open board where most traffic is, very few people read the blogs here.

    Welcome

    My pool cage always has standing and puddles of water standing at the corners and along the full lenght of my screen walls everytime it rains. Dirt, dog hair, etc., stains the deck surface when the water finally dries out on its own. Anyone know a good way to drain the water and debris out without chasing it to the nearest sceen door with a garden hose? Don't tell me to drill holes in the bottom channel or through the deck - neither works!JW

    building materials

    Posting this to a blog is not likely to be effective. Also, this forum is primarily US-based, and therefore, you're going to be hard-pressed to get guidance on available building products in the Philippines.

    Lightning struck my home, lost just about everything, all electronics, appliances, ect. home built in 2006.
    A year later I installed a hot tub, hired an elecrrician.
    I am replacing HT due to this L. strike.
    1} I discovered aluminum wiring [ 7 strand ] was used, between main breaker box in garage to breaker box on deck, terminated at hot tub. should I change this out to cooper.
    2} Did contunuity end to end/ how do I check to see if I have lost current/amperage capability due to this lightning strike?
    I moved this to the Electric forum so it would get more traffic.
