I have lived in in Georgia, France and Vermont. I have lived in and repaired tens of houses along the way. I have learned most of what I know from my mom, a true DIY-er. My experience runs from foundation work to faux painting to cabinet construction.

comment Are hydraulics stronger against compression or tension?
@anon what he is saying is that the cylinders always work with compression,it's just the position. So this is just a decision on where you want the cylinders on top or underneath, so it's up to you. Are you looking for a table or a rack, that's your decision.

comment Thin walls means lots of noise
@ndubs glad you asked. sound requires hard surfaces to bounce off of. In the link I provided it decribed the change in dB for a room with hard flat surfaces (framed pictures on the walls, hard floors, big windows) to one with shag carpet, no pictures and a towel rack. While this is anecdotal you get the picture.

comment Weird problem with kitchen sink water flow
are there any appliances hooked up to the same drainage as the sink, as a washer or dish washer hook up could cause something very similar.

comment Easy way to get crayon out of grout?
Painting over the grout seems extreme, unless it never came out, which it very well should. But this is a great solution for extreme stains.
