I see many questions and discussions about replacing toilets and/or the sub floor in bathrooms. Bathroom floors are probably the worst areas in the home for rot potential in the sub floor.

The reset button keeps popping on the Hot Water Heater

Posted 08-24-2009 at 05:53 AM by faucetman886

Yes even the Faucetman can be wrong. Just ask my ex-wife. As much as it may be hard for you to believe even I am capable of making a mistake, I divorced my first one (and never made that one again) and then there was the following discussion dialog from this weekend on GardenWeb, one of my favorite forums:
