There is a element at the top and bottom if there is two. The drain plug is at the bottom of the tank. There is a tool that you can buy when you pur...

Re: Super Bowl 45

Just be thankful you don't live within six miles of the host stadium. I don't care who plays or wins, love football, but this is a joke. Everyday is something different to get ready. My daughter works on the same street the sadium is located and they are a 7 day company, they have been asked to relo...

Re: Camuoflage siding

I was over there about two weeks ago to pick up drain for shower and I thought I had walked into the deer blind area. It looks that real in person. I just laughed as with you I could just see some home somewhere with this on the bottom. Only if you are planting bushes that would cover it at all time...

RE: New Unit

Also forgot to ask about heat strip heating? I have seen that in some ads. Have no clue and I at least want to understand before I go calling everybody.

The ac and heat are all in one and the ducts run under home and hook up to the duct work already under there...

RE: Difficulty Level Of Learning to Use a Water Level

Sandy, To answer your question it will depend on what area of Texas you live in. There are some of us that don't have clay or sand in our soil at all and it has to be mixed in after digging up where you need it. In the last stick built house we had the cement swimming pool. After digging down 15' th...

RE: Do you smoke...?

This was in our newspaper here in Ft. Worth today. Hubby & I started on the patches yesterday. We have been smoking for more than 43 years but I can't see spending 150.00 a week for smokes. That is two car payments and we only have one car. It is going to be harder on him because he has never wa...

RE: Foundation/House shift

I used a soaker hose and like you said can only use water at limited times so you can't get that much water down there to cause harm. It is all going into to the land it is not going to make a puddle. You could climb under in 30 min. and it would be so dry you never knew that water had been there. T...
