comment Can I take a 220 line and convert it to a regular house outlet what would be the damage?
@Tester101 (and @Random832), Here is a product page for that splitter. It apparently has no overcurrent protection.

comment Splitting maul handle cracked… is it still usable?
@gbronner, okay but if you've really broken several of those, you may be doing somethings wrong. :)

If they make a replacement handle, replace it ASAP. Otherwise chuck it. The head should come flying off once the shell finishes delaminating from the core -- which looks like it could be soon.

comment What is the correct way to seal/flash coolant lines through T1-11 siding?
@Damon, who says it's retrofit? This is a brand new installation, and I have no problem making them tear it out and do it right.

I'm ok with the weather-resistant aspects of the vent approach, NOT the reduced critter exclusion. You'll also note that with the vibration, the insulation was worn away at the penetration, and the lines are stained with corrosion (mostly from the mesh). But at least it won't have wet rotting wood and the destructive insects that that attracts. :)

@Jack, Didn't say I liked that vent pass-thru, but it is much more weatherproof. The photo came from one of about 80 houses in a newish subdivision. They were all built like that.

Yeah I like this stuff. Have you seen it used in a vibration and temperature-extreme scenario? Also, this would still look rather ugly. ;)

Yeah, I was looking for something like this. (My Google-fu had failed me.)

How is this a good solution? It will still look ugly as sin and the caulk will not last in the sun and vibration. We'd have to reseal it every year or two, which is unacceptable.

From the deposits left by the leak, it may be that all you have to is tighten the bonnet nut. Do this no more than a 8th of a turn at a time.
