comment How do I change lights bulbs that are 20 feet off the ground and pointing up (in a vanity fixture)?
The dimmer suggestion is a good one. We have a soft start / soft stop dimmer in our bedroom, and its 4-bulb fixture is going on 3 years now on the same set of GE Reveals. It gets used at least 2x a day.

comment Can I branch off of 1/4" copper tubing to a standard hose connector?
I wouldn't do it with my method then. If it's a permanent installation, I'd suggest plumbing it from the 1/2" lines. Otherwise, go to the hardware store, and look at the push-fit polyethelyne tubing stuff. There's Tees, and adapters of all sorts. Go man-gineer something.

How permanent do you want this to be? I'd do it with a 3/4" hose cap, and drill & tap for brass.

$1000 mattress. It was our engagement gift to ourselves. You decide which that qualifies as :)

That IS the three-hour window, installers come by first thing in the morning, and I'm still at work tonight. I have other obligations in the evening as well.
