comment Buying a House On Underground Spring. What to do?
Do you have any idea where the water is discharging to? I would suggest making sure it is discharging away from your house. That is a lot of water and I wonder if the water discharged is just making its way back into the sump.

comment My dog chewed the surface of my doors, how should I go about fixing this?
A new door will not come with door knobs, it might not even come with any holes or chiseled out areas for the hinges. The standard procedure is to place the doors on edge next to each other, and copy the location of the hinges and door knob from one door to the other.

comment What to do about particles floating in pool?
I'm not an expert so I won't add as an answer, but generally if your filter stops being effective, it is time to backwash it. Also make sure your skimmer baskets are clean

comment How to read an asbestos report

comment Suspect water heater is using too much gas
Do you use a lot of hot water? Do you have the temperature on your hot water heater set high? Have you ever flushed all the sediment out of it?

comment Where to attach clamps when using a mitre saw?
My first thought is that if you are cutting something so small that it would be dangerous to use your hand, it's probably not the right tool for the job
