comment How can I install 3 way switches that cut power to several 2 way switches?
This is possible, but it may be confusing to the next owner of the home. It could also be dangerous in a finished area, since the lights could potentially be turned off forcing somebody to find their way out in the dark.

comment How to use ceramic glaze to waterproof an earthen tank?
While this question is interesting, I'm not sure it's on topic for this site. We deal with do-it-yourself home improvement, so it's hard to see how this question would fit into that scope.

comment How can I shut off circuits when I have a generator with an automatic transfer switch?
+1 for contacting the Electrician that did the work. Though, operation of the system should have been explained to the customer at time of installation.

comment What dangers are associated with changing the pilot light assembly on a gas water heater?
A 50/50 soap/water mix might be a bit heavy; depending on the dish soap, a bit thinner is better (in my opinion).

Thanks @bcworkz. I've removed that portion of the answer.

comment Why is my electric circuit breaker tripping?
There is a difference between an overload, and a short circuit. In an overload situation (like with the hair dryer), a device is drawing more current than the breaker is set for so the breaker trips. In this situation, the only way to trip the main is to have the whole panel overloaded. In a short circuit situation the current goes up so high so fast, any breaker along the line can trip (including those at transformers, and power stations). In a short circuit scenario, it's possible to see the device closest to the source (incoming power) open.

comment Why is my electric circuit breaker tripping?
have you installed; or are you using, any new electrical devices? Does this happen when you're using a specific device?

comment Are all epoxy created equal?
+1. It's best to check with the sink manufacturer and/or stone supplier, to determine what product to use.
