    I'm working my way through finishing my basement and I've come to another point where I need a few opinions. Our floor plan results in the main room of our basement being directly under our great room on the main level. Our kids tend to bounce around a lot up there (as well as my wife when...

    I was intending to install only 6 feet of 3/4 non metallic flex (grey pLastic/pvc) but I thought I read somewhere here that the length is not necessarily limited to 6 foot. I would like to install 25 feet of flex under my deck from house (gfci panel) to spa control panel. I will have 3-#6 in...

    So I have a bathroom light switch on my 1960s ranch that currently is outside the bathroom door. I want to move it into the bathroom. Since I am also adding a bathroom fan I will be rewiring the light to a 2-gang box using new romex from the panel. However, the current switch is wired via a...

    I recently bought an appliance which came with a 2.5mm flex and as most flexes I've seen the ends of each conductor had a sort of gold crimp like thing round it to make it a solid and I suppose to make a better connection? The flex wasn't long enough so I had to go out and buy a 10M flex but...

    I have a fan assisted oven which draws about 12A maximum but the nearest socket outlet is already part of a ring main which is pretty fully loaded so I decided that it'd be best to plug it into the other ring main in my house and the nearest socket is about 15metres away, would a 2.5mm flex be...

    Hello folks, the previous owner used single-wall exhaust pipe for the furnace and it went up the chimney out the top of the house. What can I use to replace it? I've got 2x90 bends to make and about 16 foot upwards? Can I bore a hole in the side of the house that the furnace is near and...

    I did search and read on this forum that Metal duct is better than flex foil, but I am confused why my local professionals(through servicemagic) are recommending flexfoil instead of metal ducts. We recently bought a house built in 1983 and the duct work in attic seems to be falling apart, I had...
