comment When converting a pool to salt water, should the pool lights be replaced?
Salt water will tend to keep the "levels" more balanced, since there is slow addition of chlorine and not much Human Error, however, it also creates a vapour from the pool which aides corrosion of Iron components. if you have any metal close to the pool, it will start to corrode faster.

comment How to attach a bolt down post support to a fast set concrete post built with
I also feel that the bolt bracket is not strong enough for a fence post, given that the pivot weight is at that bracket position. i.e you will get lots of sagging. Can you not support the top of the post with a section of adjacent fence? or is it free-standing?

comment Horizontal Fence on a slope; what's the best design?
The convention with horizontal fence is to go with option 3. Vertical posts would follow the contour of the slope better, Shorten the panel span if you want it a little more adapted to the slope

comment mud keeps drying and crumbling as i spread it on wall
the mud settles quick, so when on the trowel, you need to practice the re-shaping/mixing technique done by the pro's, i.e you must basically re-mix every piece you apply, then its nice and spongy and ready to stick.

comment What should I do about a stubborn screw on the middle of a dryer cord connection?
Its better to twist then fold the electrical wire into the fitting. or create an l-shaped shim which goes in first. basically trying to minimise the risk of a washer slipping out and causing shorts inside the plug
