comment Low Water Pressure on Sprinkler system
What is controlling the stations? Something is turning Station 1 on; usually the system is controlled by a central timer. Your first issue is to determine why Station 1 is always on. Once that is fixed, the system should work as before.

comment why does the hot water come out of my single handle faucet but the cold will not?
Is this a new installation? If so, check that the cold water valve under the sink is on. If it is old, and has been working, the faucet may have a clog. It needs to be disassembled and cleaned. It might need new parts or it might need replacement depending on its condition. It it is old, it is probably time to replace it.

comment LED lights delayed when turned on
Have you tried interchanging the 6th LED with one of the other 5 to see if the problem shifts? Also, try changing the LEDs in any other fixtures that exhibit the same problem. Frankly, I don't see how the wiring could cause the lights to turn on as much as 5 seconds later. It is more likely to be the LED bulbs.

comment Why doesn't my dishwasher power on?
If the dishwasher is not turning on, you will not be able to measure its current draw. You said you used a voltage tester; instead use the multimeter to measure the actual voltage at the dishwasher connector. It should be approximately 120 volts. If not, you have to determine why. If it is, then you may need to call an appliance repairman (I assume the dishwasher is still under warranty).

comment Why can't I get this plastic drywall anchor into the hole?
It's clear that there is something behind the drywall. That's why the anchor is deforming. The anchors were designed for drywall installed over an empty cavity. You probably drilled into a wooden or metal support beam. This could be a good thing because you can use a regular wood screw instead of the anchors.

comment thermostat batteries replaced, AC unit won't start
You can get a multimeter for little or nothing (depending on the coupon) at Harbor Freight. Every homeowner should have one.

comment How can I get the “new bed” smell out of my daughter's bedroom?
I don't know how to get rid of the smell but you should definitely talk to the store where you bought it or the manufacturer directly. It's possible that something went wrong during the manufacturing process. You certainly need to make them aware of the problem now before too much time has elapsed.
