    Woke up this morning and realized the our cooler air conditioned air was not pumping through the house. My first thought was that the main filters need to be cleaned as we've been doing a lot of renovations and creating a lot of dust. I went down to pull out the filters and, as suspected, they...

    Hello, I'm not sure if this is the best forum for this question, but I figured I'd start here. I have a commercial hedge trimmer that I can't start - It's an Echo SHC-212, It worked well for years but had some difficulty restarting between fills about a month ago - but now it's not cranking...

    Hi, I had just bought a new filter (image attached, link below) to replace in my Philips PowerPro vacuum and what I see now is that there is a gap (image attached) between the body and the dust container and the attached clip just wouldn't fit/click (image)...

    This is probably a very basic question. But I want to change my HVAC filter. But this copper pipe (connected to the HVAC in front and then to nothing else) is in the way. It’s being propped up by a piece of wood and it doesn’t feel moveable. I feel like I need to unscrew something to get to the...

    Is it valid to use the manufacturer's maximum CFM of your furnace/air handler to make sure the air purification/filtering system you select is compatible and won't cause an air restriction problem? I'm thinking if the filter system CFM rating of the manufacturer is higher than the highest CFM...

    I’ve read this note RC Low-pass Filter Design (Sample) to design a a low pass filter for converting 120 VAC to 0-5V to input as analog into the arduino. Attached is the filter I’ve got on the bread board now and it isn’t working and I can’t come up with where I’ve went wrong. The voltage...

    Our dishwasher was filling up and while cleaning the filters, my partner took out the Wash-Cycle Pump Protector and cannot get it back on. After looking at the instructions, in bold letters it says do not remove. Does this mean it is broken beyond repair?

    I realize this is pretty specialized, but if you're landscaping, maybe you're also dealing with ponds and their filter issues. It's clear I need at least a new impeller (replacement part pictured), but I'm debating whether it's time to buy a whole new Laguna 960 filter pump. I plug it in and...

    I just bought a home that has well and septic and everything seems to be fine, but I like knowing my hardware. I have installed RO filters in the past under sinks but a well water system is a bit out of my current league (not that I cannot learn). I wanted to share some photos and need help...

    Not sure this is the proper forum...couldn't find a better one. Maybe 50 years back I recall reading a story about a canoe with a small egg-beater motor getting stranded out on a lake with bad weather approaching, the problem was water in the gas. One of the canoeists poured the gas through a...

    I need help removing water from an air compressor line so I can spray paint without issues. I am a total newbie. I have sprayed polyurethane before with really great results (it was about 13 years ago when I built a baby crib for my daughter and the sprayed on polyurethane top coat turned out...

    Is there a water filter (e.g., an under-sink filter) so I could safely drink hot water from the tap? I was warned about sediments, and that this is not a good idea. But with a filter that can work with hot water, I think this would be possible.

    We had a water system installed several years ago, and it did a great job. However, the iron problem we had is back. This is an Iron Boss that supposedly had much capacity to spare. I've used Iron Out and backwashed it repeatedly, but it seems it's worn out. It's been serviced, and the tech...

    Hello, I just moved into a home that has a TRANE XE 78 in the garage, and I can't figure out how to change the filter. The side panel says it was installed in 2002. I reached up inside as you can see and pulled out 2 of these metallic looking filters, but they were just sort of propped up in...

    Hello, I've got a problem with what I think is inductance from mains cable into the speaker cable. When I short the speaker cables with everything off I'm getting a pop through the speakers. When I ran the cables I tried to keep them separate but I obviously didn't leave enough room. I don't...

    We just got our new home and it has a Heil furnace. The model is #N8MSN0701412A2 and we are unable to locate the Air Filter. It seems like it was installed upside down and there is no filter location on either side of the furnace itself. I am attaching pictures in the hopes that someone may be...

    Hi Everyone. Narrowed down a spider problem to a 3 inch pipe that's beneath (yes) the big elbow that brings the cold air return to the filter housing, to the furnace. I've seen 4 inch filters strongly recommended on numerous occasions in these forums, and since I have to take the elbow off to...

    Hi guys. I would love some help in designing a filter to help prevent sewage clogs in my pipe leading to the main line. I live in a house on a college campus that is over 100 years old. Our sewage line constantly (averaging around twice every three weeks) clogs during the home stretch before...
