comment How to determine how many gallons of oil your oval tank holds?
Since his tank is 40" rather than 44", or 10% less, it is likely that his tank holds about 10% less so 250 gallons seems the correct capacity.

comment LED lights strip quickly flashes and goes off
It sounds like the adapter has a problem. Can you measure the output voltage of the adapter to see if it is about 12 VDC?

comment Permanent feed from light swicth
What you are describing makes no sense. When the switch is on your points A & B are shorted and the light goes on. When the switch is off, there is power between points A & B only because your lamp completes the circuit. You cannot power another appliance from points A & B as the voltage will split between the lamp and the appliance and neither will work properly. The capacitor you show is intended only for DC operation and is complete unsuitable (and unsafe) to use on a 220V AC circuit.

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.
