    Finding short in Cat5e cable

    They usually reserve the other pairs for PoE or telephone. You could always change/rewire the jacks for the good pair of wires, but the integrity is already compromised and might create a bottle neck if you push too much data through it.

    Thoughts on new DIY website...

    Why not just start a tool library? We have two of them in my county. Hand tools are free to borrow and check out to use. Late fines and broken tool fees buy new stuff and keep tools in top order.

    How to turn on sprinkler system.

    Some of the orbit and possibly others have a fuse to protect the controller. When it blows, the solenoids don't work , but on mine, it appears like everything is normal. Just no water. Are you able to turn on a sprinkler valve manually?

    Need suggestion for solid metal shower head bracket

    I just bought a 2 head shower hose add on from the box store. It came with a nice Suction cup holder for the hosed head. Maybe that as a solution?

    Chevron and Texaco Universal Card. A ripoff?

    Our costco just got Diesel, so that is a good option. Chevron down here in California, charges the cash price for cash and a chevron card. Other cards get charged at a higher price. Seems illegal to me, but I cut my gas cards up along time ago like many others have done. buyer beware!

    You might as well buy a set of them because sure as heck you will need a t-10 or t-27 eventually ;-)

    Outrageous furnace repair charges

    The only reason that the board failed was probably just "cheap" engineering. After all, they wouldn't stay in business long if they built a quality furnace.... Planned obsolescence is the way things are built these days. They just fail faster and faster. Just like those plastic gears from...

    DIY Lawn Sprinklers

    I like the rainbird ones because you can change the nozzle to adjust for volume of spray as well. There are so many options. just make sure you do your homework and overlap.

    Corded float switches

    Question. Do Those dongle style float switches come in either Normally open or normally closed? (up for open down for closed) I am trying to draw a wiring diagram for my well setup but would rather not take it apart to measure continuity if I don't have to. Thanks!

    fleck 1500 valve positions

    Hi Guys, I am looking at a diagram of a fleck 1500 softener valve water flow. I am curious what the Slow rinse position and the rapid rinse positions are/do. Thanks!

    Timed inline shutoff for water line that goes to the outside spigot

    maybe if the flow needs aren't too great you could use an irrigation control valve like a sprinkler system uses? Just an idea.

    Short Hiss after sitting on toilet?

    Try turning off the water to the tank. At work, we have a toilet that has a tank that moves causing the fill valve to open ever so slightly causing a hiss as well.

    Does a 2PSI to 0.5PSI natural gas regulator even exist?

    Try this place. Don't forget the updated orifice/jet for it as well as stated in an earlier post.

    Well hole plumbness and pump life.

    Thanks Reach4 . This well is just a lot of money, so I suppose I am just overly cautious.

    Well hole plumbness and pump life.

    I just had a new well drilled and I could tell by the rig's position that the well hole would not be plumb. Will this make a difference in operation or will it affect the life of the pump they put down there? They drilled down 204' , placed a 5" PVC casing with gravel around it. Sealed the...
