comment How can I fix a shower faucet valve where hot and cold suddenly reversed?
I think it's a Delta. See if this video helps you (especially around 1m20s) youtube.com/watch?v=XkanSw90Czw And don't be too fearful; those stems/valves are like $20 are a big box store. I watched a couple of videos and got real comfortable with the process and changed my Moen last week in about 10 minutes.

comment How to better waterproof the shower area?
pladur=drywall, right? There are various types of drywall that are engineered with different properties. Generally, water resistant drywall is used in bathrooms. Are you sure the vent is venting to the exterior of your house?

Is there a vent in the bathroom and if so are you sure it's venting properly? Is the drywall moisture resistant?

comment How to add indicator on a light switch to indicate the outdoor 3-way light is on?
I always preferred the light sensing fixtures and they were just always on. A light in the house might solve the issue (depends on how noticeable it would be to you).

No need to make a special trip. Just make it part of your daily trip to Lowe's :)

comment Can I warm up a swimming pool by submerging black-painted milk jugs in it?
I figured I would post back on here. I made the "lily pads". I ended up having to use a soldering iron to join the black plastic to the hoola hoops. Glue didn't work nor did a laundry iron.

Accepting this answer because my question (not what the title was changed too) was for DIY ways to warm up a swimming pool. Upvoted the other answers that were helpful.

I should have been more clear. I would cap the jugs after weighing them down enough to sink (probably with sand). I never intended to let chlorine interact with the paint.
