comment Should galvanized steel pipe be used as a tub spout?
I've seen galvanized pipes that were almost closed due to corrosion, but those were supply lines that were always filled with water.

comment What could cause my oven not to light?
It may not have a pilot, but that is usually how it works. Safer to release a bit of unburned gas, than a bunch of unburned gas.

Make sure the pilot orifice is clean and clear of debris. A dirty orifice is never good.

comment What could cause my oven not to light?
Have you opened up the stove (back panel, etc.)? When you do you should find a schematic either as a sticker on the panel, or folded in an envelope attached to the panel or just inside. This should tell you a bit more about the safety features of the ignition system, and will help you determine where the fault could be. The usual process would be... 1.) Ignitor ON (spark or glow). 2.) Pilot gas OPEN. 3.) Pilot Flame Ignition. 4.) Pilot Flame Detected. 5.) Main Burner OPEN.

Not likely anybody would use PEX for a tub spout, unless they wanted a floppy spout.

comment Can I use flexible LED strips to get better lighting in my kitchen?
I believe those LED strips are intended to be installed in some form of container, and the container would defuse the light. This makes it look less like a bunch of individual lights, and more like a single light.
