comment Dehumidifer outside to dry inside
The device does not appear weather proof. It is more likely that they mean it can be placed outside of the room it is feeding dry air to. If you have a passage that states otherwise, please include it even if it is not in english.

Sure you need a drain. But you might be asking if you need a floor drain?

comment Predator generator 6500 watt
Could the inverter be overheating? You might want to clean out any air flow ports it has.

comment can i use a sheet of 26ga aluminium instead of a 1/16" steel plate?
Why couldn't you get a sheet of 1/16" steel? The aluminum is too soft.

comment Extending longevity of ceramic water filters
Anything that would be removed by washing would be too large to be pushed into the filter. You could make that filter last longer without washing by having a particulate filter before it.

comment Can push-in wire connectors handle 20 amp circuits?
What actual connector? Picture of the box. Brand and model number. Without that all that can be said is that some push in connections can handle 20A but yours might not.

comment Can I use a 1KW inverter along with a motor starter to power a water pump?
@DanielGriscom 1. It's quite clear. Run the motor from the inverter. But without the model or starting current rating of the inverter, one can't answer that it will or won't work. 2. No. The starting current is up to 7 times higher than the running current. 3. That relay won't. It's just a relay. But a soft starter might.

comment Sudden low-voltage to the HVAC UV light unit
What was the power source? A transformer or was it some type of solid-state switching converter? The latter can run to problems when the capacitors dry out.

You might want to check that the cold water supply valve to the water heater is fully open.
