comment Electrolux vacuum lightbulb keeps burning out?
I don't have the bulbs anymore but they were somewhere around 2.5-3" long and maybe about 1/2" diameter at the base? I'm primarily interested in what might be causing the bulbs to die so quickly because if it's something in the power head causing a problem how do I know it may not burn out even an LED bulb. The vacuum, the areas vacuumed and the person doing the vacuuming haven't changed so the bulbs should be having the same stress they previously had but for some reason they burn out quickly.

Yeah works fine. It's not my vacuum so not my call. He likes the light to see while vacuuming underthings.

comment Electrolux vacuum lightbulb keeps burning out?
I don't know of any LED bulbs with that base so nne have been used. If you know of any please let me know but these types of bulbs are supposed to work in this installation and have successfully in the past. I'm wondering if there could somehow be a problem with the socket that may be causing arcing. One more note, after the bulb burns out it gets black from what I'm told if that makes a difference.

This is not a generic bulb and the vacuum is very old and has only had this problem recently. OEM and 3rd party bulbs meant for this vacuum have had issues.

comment mold on basement walls
It doesn't sound like mold. Mold won't grow through the paint in two days. It may be new mold on top of the paint but the antimicrobial additive should be preventing that. May be some type of efflorescence but the masonry waterproofing paint should prevent that. If you have cleaned all the mold off the walls as you indicated there shouldn't be anything to bleed through. Might want to do a mold test to see if it is mold or not and post some close up pictures. By the way, what did you wash the walls with?

Don't know if a self leveling product would be a good fit here because of the gaps.

comment What's the cheapest consumer method for testing my rental home flooring for CH2O (formaldehyde) off-gassing?
Was the laminate flooring you found on the LL website manufactured in China? Those are the only ones that have issues according to the 60 minutes report. I think you may be better off looking for environmental engineering firms (or home inspectors that can refer you to someone) to do the testing since the problems seem to be so serious.

What size is your water heater? Is it possible you have a low flow shower head and she does not?

comment Why won't my my furnace stop running unless I shut it off at the breaker?
Had something similar happen with a gas fired boiler a few years ago. Turned out to be a relay that stopped working. Have warranty with local utility and they came out and replaced it.

comment how to setup bathtub spout and shower head in separate locations
oh I see now. 2 people taking a bath together not showering together. You don't want the spout to be in someone's back. I think 2 valves is the better way to go since you already have the plumbing on the other side of the wall. Easier to run the plumbing that way instead of having to go around the wall and corner. Also easier to repair if something goes wrong in the future. Shower only on one side tub only on long wall. Just my opinion.
