comment standalone pump options for leaky below-grade room
@Ecnerwal shop vac is loud yes but can suck up the water quickly and get all of it compared to a floor sucking pump. You'd till need a shop vac to suck up what the floor sucking pump can't plus making access to get the pump draining outside may not be feasible in a rental

comment Why the huge difference in cost for Tankless vs Traditional Tank water heater installation?
One other item is repiping the gas line. Generally tankless water heaters need larger pipe than standard water heaters because they need gas faster when they are burning.

comment How can I make suction cups stay securely to a tiled shower wall?
When all else fails switch to Command Strips. They make them for the bathroom. Have some hooks in mine and I don't worry about them.

comment High pitched noise from Shower
It's unlikely anything you did would have made something in another unit start making noise if your fixtures/pipes aren't making noise. Any number of things could be causing the noise in the other unit.

comment What is causing the last two heads in a sprinkler/irrigation system to have no water pressure?
I should have left an answer and not a comment as my first response. Had to skip over some details to fit. For the driveway head if you ever want to replace the riser with Swing Joint/Funny pipe type deal it will minimize the chances of that happening again. Sprinklers near driveways tend to get driven on and walked on a lot. The flexible pipe in the swing joint won't crack like a riser will.

comment What is causing the last two heads in a sprinkler/irrigation system to have no water pressure?
In most cases you don't need to buy caps. With spray nozzles and I believe gear rotors you can turn the screw on the top all the way clockwise to shut off the flow. Impact sprinklers I don't think can be shut off this way. Your answer is written in the third person. What did you actually do to solve the problem and where did you find the leak?

comment How can I stop my shower doors from hitting one another and making an awful noise?
@Michael do a search on the websites for retailers near your area and see what they offer. Kohler makes a few under different names.

comment What would cause the mortar to crack across a number of bricks?
I see what looks like 2, maybe 3 different color mortar in the joints in the close up photo when enlarged. Does that change your opinion on how soon one should act?
