comment How do I wire a 4 terminal light fixture
Perhaps - but on cheaper fixtures (the kinds of fixtures I use in my rentals) they don't bother to join them all for you, so I just assumed this was one of those style.

comment How can I replace a water pipe on the second floor without the need to damage the bathtub?
That WOULD be the obvious place to start - it hints at a drain issue more than a feed issue - but then there could be a leak from somewhere else coming in and finding a drip edge over the bubble... one never knows til one busts open the drywall.

You don't seem to understand my question. WHY would you be damaging the tub at all? You don't go through the tub to access the pipes, you go through the wall and/or floor.

That response makes no sense to me. What does the mortgage have to do with the water pipe?

Why would replacing a water pipe require damaging the tub in the first place?

comment How can I control a circuit breaker remotely?
Illegal to shut it off. Not illegal to tell the power company that it's going to be put in their name. All of my tenants pay their own power bills.

comment What is the max distance between top of gutter and the roof tiles?
Thanks - did not have the max distance from spout measurement - but makes sense... too much distance and you get too much water buildup along the run to be handled.

comment What is the max distance between top of gutter and the roof tiles?
It's still a maximum slope run of 96' - you're just adding a 2nd slope run end to end ;)

comment What is the max distance between top of gutter and the roof tiles?
You only need about 1/4" over 8' run towards the downspout. If your gutter STARTS directly below the drip edge, to reach a 3" difference between drip edge and gutter, your gutter would need to be 96 feet long. That's a problem I'd like to have...

You should not push the tiles back beyond manufacturer recommendations because you need to make sure you have a proper drip edge. If you don't have that, water will collect at the end of the tile, wrap around and soak into the underlying surfaces that aren't supposed to get wet.

comment What can I use as a thread “tightener” compound for a free-running bolt?
Only I think if you're constantly tightening/loosening the nut in question.
