comment Why is the gas water heater pressure valve leaking after installing recirc pump & old radiator?
That means either the water is too hot, or the pressure is too high. Do you have an expansion tank, or other pressure controlling device? When you heat water in a closed loop the pressure goes up, if it gets to high the T&P valve will open.

comment How can I determine what grade air filter is appropriate?
I guess it depends on what you expect from your filter. If you smoke in your house, I can't imagine you're super concerned about air quality. And if you are, you probably shouldn't be relying on your furnace to provide air filtration. Personally I use the the "standard" filters, since I figure the filters only job is to keep crap out of the furnace. If I want to improve the air quality in my house, I'll add a system designed for the purpose.

I think most manufactures (at least in the US), list the types of things each filter is designed to filter out.

comment What kind of floor is this?
I agree. But I think the distance between the rings depends on the growth pattern. I could be wrong, since I don't know much about bamboo.

comment Simple & Cheap dance floor instead of carpet
I don't think laminate flooring would work well over carpet, at least not without a rigid substrate.

comment What kind of floor is this?
Don't know that much about bamboo, but I think the distance between "knots" depends on each seasons growth. If the "knots" are too uniform, I would suspect it's a printed pattern on locking flooring. Part of the beauty of real wood, is the lack of uniformity in the grain.

comment can I use the same carpet carpet
We can't see your flat from here, so it's difficult to say for sure.

You may be able to find a local vender that rents dance floors. I have no idea what pricing would be like, but it might be something to look into.

Depending on the pile of the carpet, sheets of plywood laid on top may create an unstable surface (especially at the edges).

Does this happen when only the main is off, or when both the main and circuit breaker are off?

comment Furniture needs to be attached to the wall, but my tenancy agreement doesn't allow it
@FiascoLabs I agree. Though I feel like landlords in those areas would be more understanding about the situation.
