Could you possibly label the pipes and valves in this picture?

@ChrisCudmore - Your blog post never really mentions trim. I think the takeway from your post is "leave a 1/4" gap between the floor and the vertical surface it goes up against then cover that gap with a wide enough trim piece to hide the gap as it expands and contracts". Is that a fair summation?

"Buy trim that is thicker and will cover expansion gap." So I need a 1/4" expansion gap. How thick should the trim be to cover that? 1/2"? 3/4" 5/8"

Your remarks as to why I need a gap and that the 1/4 round is used to cover that gap was helpful.

I've had two electricians suggest that replacing the panel is the correct course of action because if one tab on one bus bar had broken off then its likely that others are also likely to go soon. A cheater and some shuffling would work but may only delay the work.

Also the cable run from the panel to the A/C disconnect is only about 6 feet. Running a longer cable to reach a new breaker shouldn't be a showstopper.

The current panel is completely full. I need to find room for a double pole breaker. I have one good slot open. So if the cables are long enough or can be rerun, I could do this with a single cheater breaker. Put the cheater in the single good slot and free up two slots for a double pole.
