I have skimmed that page a few times and missed the part about "durable/chemical resistance". I really would think the pressure tests would be better on PEC-A!

Cool. Yeah no filtering here. I'll just go to the big box.

comment Replace buried polybutelyne/Qest with Pex
Awesome idea. Researching my local code to see if that's possible. Thanks!

So you think the incoming water line is run through the slab and not underneath. I thought, I guess hopefully, that it was run underneath the slab until it poked up through.

comment Do I need to replace this toilet ring?
I have plenty of access the toilet is upstairs and the downstairs ceiling is open. Might try the easy way first though.

comment Can I avoid the slab and run the new PEX through walls and interstitial space?
Thanks. Running the pipe nearest the edge of the wall is something I didn't think of. I knew the nail plate requirement.

even the groutable vinyl tiles say they aren't water proof - i think they need to add a water resistant category

comment How to get proper support for a closet system from a firewall?
It is not a 2x4 it is a 2x2. I am aware that 2x4 does not actually mean 2 inches by 4 inches and should have been clearer about the size in my OP. Please see my update. The product weight itself is 85 lbs and that's before customization and clothes. I would say upwards of 300 lbs total.

Mike this was occurring before that fan install + the fan is on a completely different breaker.

comment What type of wire should I run when updating a ceiling fan?
OK my plan then is to slide the fan wall switch all the way up. Pull the cord until it's at the highest setting. Slide the fan wall switch all the way down then remove the cord. Thanks!

comment What type of wire should I run when updating a ceiling fan?
Perfect. I think you answered it all. I finally RTFM and reviewed the wiring diagram. That switch above is in the manual as an example of the switch I can use. I will def go in that direction. Do you pull the string to set it at the highest fan speed then use the slider to change it? I take for granted the switch will come with its own wiring diagram. Thanks!

comment What type of wire should I run when updating a ceiling fan?
@bib The new fan does have a light ( hence the blue wire, right? ). There is a light on the old fan. The light and fan were not separately controlled. The new fan does not have a remote control unit.

comment Should I cancel our appointment with the repair tech for our washing machine?
Actually 6 1/2 months isn't long at all. What kind of warranty do you have? Could the repair be covered under warranty? If so let them do it.
