comment Insulated radiator foil
As long as the asbestos is contained, there isn't much of a danger. Only when it's exposed to the air and likely to be disturbed and create dust do you need to worry. So if you are planning construction you would want to get it tested. But if you won't touch it ever, don't worry.

comment I've noticed the water from the sink won't heat up, while the water in both bathrooms heats fine.
If you turn off the cold water under the sink, then open the tap to the full hot position, does the water get hot? Does it even come out at all?

comment Can I use a pool pump to drain a shallow well?
A pool pump would not be appropriate here. Typically they are not capable of priming more than a foot or two above water. That's why they are always installed adjacent to the pool at nearly the same height as the deck.

comment What might cause water to leak under or behind a bathtub?
If, for example, the spigot is leaking but the puddle is on the floor, then the water has to travel from the spigot to the floor. That travel is what you are looking for.

comment Air Conditioner woes: water pooling in basement, condensation on ducts, frost on outdoor copper pipe
A spinning fan is not enough to know that the compressor is running. The compressor is the tank looking thing in the bottom of the condenser. It sounds like a refrigerator when it starts up. In your case, since you see frost on the refrigerant line we can assume that your compressor is running. There is nothing else in the system that could get the refrigerant cold enough to cause frost.
