comment Will my wood platform support my generator?
Did you try jumping on it? I'm pretty sure jumping on it is the standard DIY live load test. Jumping then wiggling and/or gyrating tests live loads in multiple directions. Getting all the people within earshot to stand on it, is the standard DIY dead load test.

comment Why does the hot water run cold at less than 'full throttle'?
You don't have a tankless (on-demand) water heater, do you? Tankless heaters only turn on when the flow is above a certain threshold.

comment Do home radiators waste water?
+1. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports that an "average family of four can use 400 gallons of water every day", and that "A leaky toilet can waste about 200 gallons of water every day".

@maple_shaft I think the purpose of the exception, is to prevent an unqualified person from turning the main service on while the generator is connected. Which could easily be done if the cover was removed from the panel, during service to the installation (interlocks are disabled by removing the panel cover).

Do you have an irrigation system? If so, it there a really soggy spot in the yard? Are you filling all your neighbors pools, or a killer whale tank? You don't have a fixture hooked up like this, do you? I'd contact the water company to come take a look at the meter.
