comment Sump is sealed for radon remediation and doesn't drain water. What can I do for water drainage?
The job of the sump is to move ground water away from the structure, not to drain water from a ruptured water tank.

comment Furnace acts like it is not getting power
Could be in some type of lockout mode. We'll need a lot more details to know for sure. Please provide as much information as you can, so we can provide the most accurate answer possible. What is the sequence of events leading up to this state?

comment Why does my GFI keep going off? Is it dangerous?
GFCI devices don't monitor the grounding conductor at all. In fact, a grounding conductor isn't even required at all for the device to function properly.

comment Why is my A/C's breaker tripping all the others?
Sounds like you should call a local licensed Electrician. It's possible that there is more damage than the average DIYer is able to fix.

comment How should I fill gaps between floorboards?
It's difficult to say this for sure, without seeing the condition of the floor. Pulling up the floor might be the best option, if the current floor is in poor shape.

comment Furnace not working properly with digital thermostat
What type of furnace do you have (make and model)? What type of A/C unit do you have (make and model)? What type of thermostats have you tried to install (make and model)? How are you wiring the new thermostats?

comment How to GFCI protect bathroom lighting circuit
Without more information, it's difficult to provide an accurate answer. Does the switch box only have one cable entering it (the 14/3 cable)? If so, you're not going to be able to protect anything other than the GFCI receptacle itself with the current wiring. Unless you install a GFCI breaker. Could you provide some photos, or at least a simple wiring diagram?
