I'm the sole developer for a publishing house, doing on-line courses and exams.

We have a web designer, who typically does layouts and courses, but I do anything that involves programming logic.

comment What can I do to ensure my pool doesn't freeze?
The pool will be fine. Water has to give up a whole lot of energy to freeze. What might freeze is any above ground pipes near the pump. Just keep the pump running while the temperature is cool.

You need a 1/2 inch to 1/4 inch reducer fitting. These are readily available at your big box store.

comment Replacing a spanned “beam” with a cantilevered beam
While you are correct re: strength vs. deflection, for most household materials the deflection limit typically 1/240 or 1/360 IIRC, are usually the limiting factor. That is, a safe design will typically violate the deflection limit, but a deflection based design will usually be safe. (Although, all bets are off on this short span).

comment Replacing a spanned “beam” with a cantilevered beam
I'd really like to see a photo of the existing situation as well as a sketch of the proposed solution. Also, have you considered how you'll be attaching the cantilever?

The first thing you do is install a CO detector in the room above the garage!

Or you can try clear caulk. Test it in a corner and see if it works for you.
