comment Why can't some light bulbs be used with timers?
Neither, it's about motion sensors. But it's the same problem.

comment Is it safe to pull a continuous 18 amps from a 15 amp outlet?
Custom extension cords and undersized extension cords and ignoring the rating labels on your devices are good ways to get insurance claims denied, too.

Some timers switches do not require a neutral, just like some motion detectors. See diy.stackexchange.com/questions/30359/…

comment How can I make the underneath of an outdoor playset usable and not a mudpit?
Nope, I just bought whatever brand they had at Lowe's or Home Depot. For rubber mulch, there are multiple grades. One is recycled tires and it's very dirty and dusty. The grade I used looks like peanut shells and is clean.

As an alternative to rubber mulch, you can get those foam mats the look like jigsaw puzzle pieces. You'll have to replace them occasionally, but then you don't have to worry about the mulch being thrown. My kids did like to throw the rubber mulch, but they stopped after a while. It didn't seem to damage my lawn mower.

The playset looks like the one in the picture above: there is a wooden rail going around the footprint of that portion. The rail keeps the mulch in.

comment Blower motor wires crossed
Do the blower motors have stickers with wiring diagrams on them? If so, take pictures of both and post them here. Also, model and part numbers would be helpful.

comment How should I remove the water from my pool cover?
You can also use a shut-off valve to siphon. Lower the entire hose in to the puddle so that the hose fills with water. Screw the shut-off valve on to the hose and shut it. Then pull that end of the hose out and low. Open the valve and voila! I've also done the same with a pool vacuum hose and a plastic cup as a cap.
