If you are worried about it - if it's a humid environment - you should go ahead and use ditra as your underlayment.

The diverter is clean - I checked it when I assembled it. As for home pressure - honestly I don't know. I guess I should pick up a gauge. :)

comment Why are my concrete water tanks not retaining water?
Concrete is porous. It is not a water tight material. The only way to make it water tight is to treat it either on the inside (where the fish live) or on the outside with some kind of waterproofing material.

I'm not certain but I think your panel is discontinued and replacement parts will get harder to find. But you should consult with an electrician on that.

comment Is it legal in a multi-unit building to draw air for ventilation from the attic?
How exactly did you "test" these pipes? As for being in code - that entirely depends upon when the building was built or last renovated. Something that may not be to code today may have been permitted 20 or 50 or 100 years ago and building codes do not require existing buildings that are out of compliance to be updated unless other work is already going on.

Yes - Aluminum is also bad news in the Electrical world. I'm not sure but I think that code requires that if you touch aluminum wire you are supposed to replace it.
