comment Should I fix my swimming pool with plaster or a clorinated rubber?
From what I understand old pools have longer lasting plaster (because of the hazardous materials that were used that are now outlawed) so it's best to keep it around for as long as you can.

comment How can I diagnose my fridge's evaporator fan?
Any chance it's just the fan motor? I had a dead one on a brand new refrigerator.

comment How can I efficiently heat a pool?
Late but a good answer. I want to do solar but a friend of mine said it wasn't worth it on his pool (though, maybe he just didn't run it right). There is some cost involved to run it since you have to pump the water though the array. Only thing I don't like is I don't know if I want that kind of weight on my roof!

Quickly heating and cooling the concrete could cause cracks would be my guess.

Never heard of a "french drain". I'll check that out.

comment How can I efficiently heat a pool?
Well, mine is rectangular too but the yard is small and the 18 inches or so of cool deck around the pool is the only way to go from one side of the house to another so I'd have to remove the pool cover just to move my mower from one side of the house to another.

comment How do I test a furnace limit switch?
Scary. I would be scared the fan was going on because there was still heat that needed to dissipate and it's cycling on and off because it cools to the right temp and then heats back up and then the fan pops on again to cool it down.

comment How can I repair the cool deck around the pool?
Good point about how painting it will mean it's not a "cool deck" anymore. I don't like the idea of paint anyway . . . it's a temporary solution though I guess everything is temporary but real cool deck will last longer than paint/epoxy.
