Diamond tip is the only way to go and yes you need to spray it with water while you drill it whatever you do do not use the hammer or impact function on your driver just let it nice and gently turn its way into the material you can run painters tape criss cross across the whole you're getting ready to drill sometimes that will prevent chipping on the ...

depending on the weight loaded on the shelves and the thickness of the granite, drilling through the granite (and attaching the brackets or standards to wall framing) would produce the most stable and sturdy shelves. The wall anchors would work also, but using the wall framing is more reliable. Drill using a carbide bit slightly larger than the screw ...

Carbide works well on granite. It's best if you can provide cooling by drilling under water. If you're stuck with vertical tiles, frequent squirting might keep the drill bit and granite reasonably cool.

I had this same problem. I tried the same thing you tried also with no lasting result. First plumber acted sleazy and said I needed a new hot water heater fast about $900. No thank you. Second plumber (good reputable company I'd used before) said it might be that the water heater needed cleaning. A little over $100. Okay. They cleaned it. Worked for a couple ...

If the gap bothers you that much, you have a few options. Fill the gap You could fill the gap with wood putty, or color matched caulk. You'll still have a gap, but it will be difficult to see. Remove material from the molding You could remove a bit of the material from the back of the molding, to allow it to lay flat over the lip of the cabinet. This ...

In some places they are called "air gaps" and they do what jofel said, they prevent dirty water from being pulled out of the drain into the dishwasher.

The armature is indeed a valve for the dishwasher or washing machine. The unknown part of it is a ventilation which serves as a non-return device. It avoids that (possibly dirty) water is sucked back into the general fresh water supply, if there is a pressure drop into the "negative region" due to some defects or interruption.

I highly doubt this is a valve for the dishwasher. Since this is above the countertop (which I'm assuming since there's tile on the wall), it may be a pot filler with the end capped off.

You did hear correctly: the floor must be as flat as possible (and as rigid) in order to support the tile. You mentioned the floor being supported on posts. If there is enough head room a better repair is to shim-up the low spot from below. Depending on how severe the floor depression is this may entail hammering some store bought shims under the joists or ...

The concrete board and extra mud will be all you need. Lay the concrete board, then fill in where needed.

I sell and replace these filters all the time. For the first few seconds, black carbon fines are usually flushed out - which is just dust sitting on the outside of the carbon interior core. It is not harmful to drink either. You drink activated carbon (usually compressed into tablets) when you have diarrhea to absorb bacteria causing the diarrhea. If you ...

If you have single phase 240V power, you connect hot to screws 1, 2 and 3. Neutral to screws 4 and 5. That is what the diagram is showing. And of course, ground to the ground screw.

Another option available to you is to do like I did on one kitchen remodel. I removed the range hood and carefully disassembled it removing the electrical connections, switches and light. I then sent the main metal part out to be chemically stripped. It came back looking all bare metal with most of the rust spots clean as well. In a few spots I had to do ...

Never seen one like this - BUT have installed many a hood in cabinets where the vent did not end up exiting the center of the cabinet. a combination of adjustable elbows will offset the vent if you have at least 15" height in the cabinet. As a last resort flexible aluminum duct could be used but only if you have no other options.

Sue, if this idea is not too late: Consider the exhaust fans location. Those small ceiling fans you see at the big box stores can only be installed in the room you want to vent and will quickly (due to use) become noisier. Consider a whole house or multi-room exhaust fan unit. Basically, it's a larger exhaust fan that is installed anyplace in your attic. The ...

Maybe, but probably not. Electrical Most electric dryers are designed to be connected to a 30 ampere branch circuit, using a NEMA 14-30 plug. While most electric ranges are designed to work with a 50 ampere branch circuit, using a NEMA 14-50 plug. Since the two devices likely use different plug configurations, it's not going to be as simple as just ...

Thoughts, in no particular order: Where's the water heater? The longer the pipe run between it and the kitchen, the longer you'll be waiting for hot water. There are instant hot water devices if this is an issue. The oven will presumably need either an electrical or gas connection. You're putting the dining table directly under the toilet. How's the sound ...

Depending on the refrigerator, there may be a way to adjust the door directly. If not, most models have height adjustable feet. Simply adjust the feet, so that the door stays in place or slowly opens. How the adjustments are made, will be specific to the make and model. Check the manufacturer's documentation for your appliance, to determine how to make the ...
