comment How to stop a leak of water through a concrete floor
The man from upstairs came today, while I was at work, and the wife let him in. He's filled around the pipe and cracks with cement. Don't know what he's done upstairs, probably the same cement round the drain, but I don't expect the repair to last more than a few days.

It's in a bathroom. Water goes on the floor during normal bathroom activities.

The water is not escaping the pipe. It is going down the crack between the pipe and the concrete.

There's no landlord. We own the apartments. The leak is not sewage. It is water from the bathroom not from the pipe.

comment Which way is up? (electric outlet)
This question need not be local to the USA. Other sockets designs also have the same issue and in my travels I's seen sockets fitted in many strange positions. For example, China and Australia use the same shaped three pin socket but in China the earth is top where as Australia the code says earth is bottom.
