comment Can I warm up a swimming pool by submerging black-painted milk jugs in it?
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.

comment What dangers are associated with changing the pilot light assembly on a gas water heater?
More directly, no I didn't use tape or dope because it wasn't on there before

comment What dangers are associated with changing the pilot light assembly on a gas water heater?
I didn't actually run the black iron pipe as it was already run and the flare nuts didn't have anything like that on them before. I only removed the burner, thermocouple, and pilot light from the control unit. The control unit (with the off/pilot/on dial and temperature control) was already connected and I didn't disconnect that.

I used Dawn dish soap which is pretty thin already.

comment How do I make a manhole?
I actually built a crawlspace access in the last house. This is an excellent answer, but I don't think using molding to cover the seam is ideal. I think using metal thresholds work best; they are much thinner than molding, and won't cause a trip hazard. Cut em at 45 degrees and it can look quite nice. Also, this give you something easy to pry the access open with.

comment Is this fungus? What should I do about it?
Good answer. In my experience and reading, I've found that a 20% bleach solution is no better than a 100% bleach solution at killing the mold and is less irritating to the lungs and eyes.

comment Drilling “misting” pin holes in PVC
I like the duct tape option. You should try that and see if you get the misting action you desire. Let us know because I'm really curious if that would work.
