comment Rewire a ceiling fan, ceiling fan on, not controllable by switch
Your ground wires sound OK. Measuring the voltage between the white wire and ground is simply a diagnostic. Also, the voltage between the black wire and ground should be 120 volts.

comment Good, affordable pathway materials for sidewalk with tree root problems
It all depends on what you can get. In my hometown, brick is free because all of the old roads are brick underneath. The public works guys have a huge stack from all of the roads that are ripped up, and any resident can just come pick up however much they want. The labor to install is a bit more because it takes longer.

comment News Exterior Transfer Switch Location and Clearance
What kind of transfer switch? Does it have lots of individual breakers, or just one breaker to switch over the entire household load?

comment Water seeping through where pipe exits slab foundation
Where are you and what kind of slab? Is this a basement slab? Or slab on grade?

comment Where is this water coming from around my condensate pipe? (super confused)
Is there condensation on the outside of the pipe? That might account for the small amount of water on the floor. Also, its pretty irresponsible to not know where that pipe goes. I suggest cutting it and plumbing in a house bib and a ball valve so that you can flush the line out with a hose. That volume of water might also help you figure out where it goes.

comment 230V Single phase connection for 2 HP Table saw to the breakers in the panel
You guys are right. I don't know what I was thinking. I had the comb in mind, but that didn't make it to the sentence forming part of my mind.

comment 230V Single phase connection for 2 HP Table saw to the breakers in the panel
Your question doesn't make sense. In most panels, breakers side-by-side would be on opposite phases, and so would breakers on opposite side in the same row.

comment Optimizing heating in a heat-pump + electric resistive system
Adding to point 7, to 30 amp breaker is probably for the condenser. The 60 amp breaker is for your air handler, and would include the heat strips, blower, and control circuitry. That chart should have a mark on it to indicate which heat package is installed, or written on the unit somewhere. If it doesn't, the contractor that installed it should come back and do that. Without that marking, it wouldn't pass inspection where I live.
