comment Will I have any issues installing an in-floor heating mat with premix mortar?
I called both the mat and mortar manufacturing company. They both said I should do no it, but neither could give me a definite answer as to what my implications could be. The mat company said the chemical in the thin set would eat the cable coating. The mortar guy just kept saying don't do it, but could not say why I should not do it. I asked if there was a fire risk and he said the mat could cause the plywood to burn. Really? I just need to know there is a risk of fire. I just wont turn it on if there is a risk. Anyone know?

comment What is this in my water softener?
I am in southeast Denver. I have been to our town website and my water has a hardness level around 7 which is acceptable.

Do you know what the brown substance is? The resin is $250 and the O-rings are $40. Unless someone convinces me otherwise, I'm leaning towards a full replacement with a newer and more economical water management program.
