comment Connecting a water heater, what kind of fittings, valves, and adapters?
Is there any reason to not put a valve on the hot too? I mean, this is a tight fight. If I ever want to take it out for maintenance I may not want to have the pipes drip all over the place again. (and, we're only talking another $10) Nit to mention it's not really isolated. I have a sink that has a hot-cold single swing thing that seems to feed back cold water the other way. (that would be my guess anyway).

comment Blade comparison, DW4765 vs DW4701:
Great answer, bad marketing on the park on DW. The DW4765 should be marketed for wet saws only then.

comment How does Red Guard / waterproof relate to floating for tile?
It's a mortar bead of some sort, already. I live in a condo and all I can see for the floor is concrete. The floor is pretty bad out of level. I'm thinking about using a grinder on the concrete to take down the high points -- I'm not sure if that's a kosher idea, that'll be another question. I'm not sure what I'm using yet. To be honest, I don't much care. I tend to think bigger tile looks better and is less grout to clean. So probably something 16 inch or larger. Thanks for all the help.

comment How does Red Guard / waterproof relate to floating for tile?
I'm not doing a shower, I'm doing a bathroom. It'll get wet. But not soaked. I'm just confused at the order of operation with the waterproofing and floating. Do I make the bathroom level with self-leveling mortar, and then waterproof and then the thinset for tiling goes over the waterproofing? Or, do I waterproof and then level the whole bathroom using self-leveling mortar.

so you float first, and then use redguard? I'm not sure if prepping means floating or etching/cleaning.

revised Is there such thing as joint-compound primer? And, is there a need to prime before texturing a ceiling?
