  1. Plumbing
    I had an issue with Vacuum-assisted toilet. The problem was someone left the bottom plastic cover on the wax donut. The toilet crushed the plastic, and shrunk the outlet circumference. I installed a new bare donut, problem solved. No more clogging. If it's a donut with rubber liner, it's to be...

    Right out of the gate...sigh. bought a new vacuum today. Was so excited to suck up all my dog hair, I didn't pay attention to the part about don't pull the cord out past the red mark. (There's a red mark?!) After I sucked up enough hair to make a beagle-extremely satisfying, I went to put the...

    Does anyone know what the maximum size battery that will physically fit in the Milwaukee 2.5 Gallon Vacuum model # 0970-20? Is it the 8 amp? 12 amp?

    Trying to figure out what motor i need to buy (It is a Shark Rocket HV321) I disassembled the motor, and found that the bearings and motor were quite rusted. Motor was making a ridiculously loud screeching noise, so i figured it needed a replacement. At first i wanted to replace just the...
  5. HVAC
    Hi, I was wondering about what is the difference between -20 psig and -30 psig vacuum. Why is it such a big deal to let the ac manifold gauge shows the vacuum down to -30 psi after turning off the vacuum pump and before charging the refrigerant??? Is it because there is still air inside the ac...

  9. Electrical
    I moved into a new townhouse with a central vac system roughed in. I mounted the canister in the garage near the PVC stub that was coming from the ceiling. I connected the PVC tubes to the canister inlet. There's one low voltage wire that runs along the PVC stub from the ceiling. I took that...
  10. HVAC
    Hi, I have a Fujitsu mini split AC and the condensor is installed on the roof. The roof will be redone shortly and I need to remove the unit for them to work. My unit is working fine, Can I unplug it and replug it afterward by myself? Do I need any special device like a vacuum pump or can I...
  11. Building & Construction
    I just got a central vac unit and our house is roughed in. As I was hooking it up I relized the top floor is hooked up to the garage (where the unit is). The main floor outlet goes directly to the basement. The two outlets are not connected so I spoke with our builder about it and they said I...
