comment kitchen falcet over pressurized when you turn on
Was it always like this, or has this started recently? Have there been any changes to the plumbing (new water heater, new water meter, etc.)? Does the house have an expansion tank (A metal container smaller than a 5 gal. propane tank, likely near the water heater)?

Can you link to the code that requires pigtails (or quote the text here, or at least mention a reference number or something so folks can look it up)?

This only applies to multiwire branch circuits.

comment What could cause two of my receptacles to stop working?
How are you determining that there's no power to the receptacles? Are you plugging in a lamp, etc.? Are you using the same "lamp" to test all the receptacles or just these two "bad" ones?

comment Copper tubing for refrigerator
If it were me, I'd replace it with nonmetallic tubing. But then again, I hate flexible copper tubing. Most fridge manufactures recommend pulling out the fridge, and cleaning behind it. This repeated movement is not so good for copper tubing, commonly resulting in kinks, bends, and other damage to the tubing.

comment How to remove turn-style tub overflow cover?
The overflow leads to the tub drain. You won't see much if you get the cap off, other than a passage leading to the drain.

comment AFCI keeps tripping after power outage
Use an ammeter to measure the current on the circuit. If it's the thermal protection, a delay wouldn't be that unusual if the current is close to the breakers trip point.

That's true, but the pipe shouldn't be "deformed".
