comment Hot Water Circulating System Problems
I'm only used to seeing a single return from the furthest faucet (often the master bathroom or kitchen). How are the returns for each faucet connected back to the recirculation pump?

comment When my primer flakes off easily how will it help hold the paint
How well did you clean the surface before priming, were you all the way down to the metal, and does the primer say it's designed for metal?

comment How should I remove a raised concrete pad on my basement floor?
6" of concrete may be a massive project if the basement is large, and if there are walls, you'd want to remove them and rebuild them after you're done. I think I'd go for the jackhammer myself.

comment Insulate and fill hole in wall that was for cables?
This is hard to answer without some basic details. How big is the hole, what type of siding material is on the exterior, what kind of insulation is in the wall, and what is the interior surface.

comment Why is my bedroom light not working?
How exactly is the breaker not working, does it immediately trip when you turn it on? How did you verify that the wiring is right?

comment Hot water in cold water pipe
This sounds like an "old work" recirculation pump that is installed between the existing hot and cold lines without a dedicated return. What type of recirculating pump is it, does it include some type of shutoff valve to stop hot water from passing to the cold side, and are the cold water pipes getting hot even when the pump is turned off?
