comment Sump pump & ejector pump: can I (and should I) change single dedicated non-GFCI receptacle to a dual receptacle GFCI?
Installing a GFCI for an older device (especially a device plugged into a single dedicated receptacle), might be a mistake. The older device is likely not designed to work well with a GFCI, which could lead to nuisance trips.

I wouldn't blame it all on GFCI manufacturers, and those fine folks that write the codes. Device manufacturers have had ample time to design devices that don't trip GFCIs, they simply refuse to do so.

comment How do I install a WiFi thermostat with a Well-McLain steam boiler?
How many wires are in the cable at the thermostat? Have you contacted Honeywell support? Do you have the schematic for the boiler?

comment Is it sane to use a normal router to cut drywall, approximating a spiral saw?
Routers make a mess with wood, can't imagine what they'd do with drywall. Make sure you wear a respirator, and seal off the area where you're working.

comment Connection for C wire on Mastertrol Mark V zone control panel
@TomG I think you're right. I tried to contact Honeywell with no success, but looking at the wiring of others it appears M2 is more likely to be used as C on the Mark V.
