@BigHomie, that is what I understand. I'm actually making jamb extensions for interior doors I replaced in my older home. I found this article and this article to be helpful.

Sounds simple enough. The side of the basement where the breaker box is is unfinished, so I can see the wires. I'm sure that will help quite a bit. I should be able to find which are the supply pretty easily.

@Edwin, I was reading this article on This Old House that talked about that. Which was interesting. I got my multimeter and set it to VAC, stuck the red in the short prong hole and touched the screw. On one outlet I got a reading of around 50, on another I got a reading of 1 or 2. Are they both grounded?

comment Replacing battery in backup sump pump
@Ecnerwal, bought the house 3 years ago and the system was already in place. To test the battery, I unplugged the system and pushed the "test" button which runs the pump. The charge indicator on the unit went from 100% to 25% immediately.
