comment Can I lean a ladder against tempered glass without damaging the window?
I will probably go to that route, but since the question was about ladders and glass, I already picked a more apropriate answer.

They are fixed pane windows. They are high above and decorative. Haven't you noticed the sizes? They are very big.

I thought that IF I could stand a ladder, it would just be a matter of cleaning one area, move the ladder and then another, etc. But I need to find some way to clean this...

comment Can I use caulking to install a marble threshold?
I have the same problem here, I can't use thinset because of the extra thickness so I'm thinking on using a PU adhesive (used in constructions) or maybe an epoxy compound (used to bind screws to concrete). From what I've seem on the Liquid Nails website, they are PU based, right?

comment Are there differences to drywall joint compound and plaster?
Thanks, I will go for the right stuff then. The powdered variety is easier to come by here, it dries in 90 minutes. The ready-mix in buckets takes a whole day to dry and isn't so easy to find.

comment Are there differences to drywall joint compound and plaster?
Searching the net I've found just a few mentions to plaster and drywall. One of them is talking about "plaster skimming", which is done on the whole wall (from what I understand). The other mention that I've found says that joint compound is more britle, cracks easily and needs 3 coats to be applied, plaster is harder (and hard to sand) and can be applied at once.

comment Square tube or C-channel for gate frame
I understand that (I failed to mention it though in my post). I was (am) a bit worried about using it because I actually never saw a gate using c-channel. I think it might be because of the looks of it, but I'm not sure.

comment Does air trapped in water pipe disturb the meter reading?
I made another test. I assured myself that all joints were dry, opened the shut off valves and let the system quiet for 1 hour. When I returned it registered 1.8 liters consumed. That averages to 30ml/minute, this is visible, any joint leaking this much would be soaking wet, but they were all dry. I'm calling the water company tomorrow.

No drains there, the pipe just has a garden tap and the other end is capped (the house is in construction). I think air trapped in the capped end might be expanding and contracting, i set it up for another test later. All in all, i dont think that more than 3 liters fit in the pipes.
