Fix Garage Slope
I think the idea is to remove the liquid fuel before or while a fire is active. Older codes accepted drains, have not seen current ones or researched them...... Anyone? A house fire, especially in the garage (location of majority of electrical panels), would stop any power to a motor or air compressor. Anything other than Code would/should be approved by local officials. Invent it, patent it, save lives, I'm all for that! I enjoy thinking "outside the box" too, and it keeps the gray matter fresh....
Be safe, Gary
Clothes taking longer to dry?
Clean the dryer screen in HOT water if using fabric softener sheets.
They leave a residue that impedes air-flow, costing you money.
Clean the ducting in the last six months? 17,000 dryer fires annually!
