comment Why does my toilet intermittently run continually?
If you use one of those 1000 Flushes in-tank cleaners, it can eat away at the rubber and cause the flapper to leak.

comment What are the tools that every Do-it-Yourselfer must own?
After cutting something metal, such as carpet threshold trim, you can use it to deburr and polish up the edges.

Huh? If you fixed your fridge, you have therefore improved your home.

comment What's the best/easiest way to paint edges?
If you have a textured ceiling, you don't have much choice than to learn how to cut paint into a corner. Once you get the hang of it, you'll wonder why you ever bothered with tape before.

True. There are those edge cases where you need to disassemble/reassemble something and having an organized (and sturdy) set of allen keys can save the day.

comment What are the tools that every Do-it-Yourselfer must own?
There are plenty of hex bolts around the house that need sockets and wrenches: Decks use lag bolts and carriage bolts. Some water and gas line fittings need box end wrenches (sometimes an adjustible wrench won't cut it). etc.

comment Should I set fence posts in dirt, gravel, crushed rock, or concrete?
Depending on your soil and fence structure, you may be able to skip the concrete altogether. e.g. A post and rail setup is light weight and probably does not need concrete to keep it sturdy. Don't skip the gravel. This provides drainage to prevent rotting.
