comment Am I required to replace a non code compliant balustrade?
Generally, the rule is that if it was to code when built, it can remain. However, once you start work on it, you'll need to bring it up to code. This general rule may vary by jurisdiction, and you'll need professional legal advice.

comment What type of equipment do I need to complete this audio setup?
Off Topic. If you need help with running wires, then we're the the right place. This question deals with audio equipment, which falls outside our scope.

comment Is it normal for water to drip from a shower head for a bit after a shower?
A large shower head will hold more water in its "barrel" than a small one. The only exit path is to drip. Try jiggling the diverter after you shut it off. This can introduce air, and help it drain faster.

comment What is the best choice for patching and leveling concrete before tile install?
Can you add a pic of some of the problem spots? Post a link, and we can edit it into your question. Small holes, like a dimple where a concrete nail was pulled can be filled with the thinset when you lay the tile. High spots that are made of excess concrete splatter, can be chiselled off.

I think they're switching on the return leg. HOT-LIGHT-BLACK-SWITCH-WHITE-NUT-WHITE-PANEL. That is, the switch is after the light.

Just a side note: Questions about Braising belong on cooking.stackexchange.com. Questions about brazing belong here. (I fixed it)
