• Electric water heater not getting power or shuts off.?

    I have a 50gal electric water heater from 2014. I get power from the junction box to it but when hooked up it does not power it on. The breaker is not tripped either. The heating elements are brand new as I just replaced them a few months ago. Does anyone have any ideas?

  • Should a housing developer replace my taps??

    My wife and I have just (three weeks ago) purchased a new build property. The bathroom and downstairs toilets have these snazzy shallow sinks and some fancy taps which gush the water out in a jet that is roughly the width and depth of a £2 coin. This is all very attractive. The problem is if you run the tap at anything more than a quarter of it's full pressure, the water splashed right out of the sink. Yes, we could get by with just using them gently but really???? It's a pain! Also, they don't mix the hot/cold water properly when we run them slowly ...so it's either scolding or cold. Not good! So we've come to terms with the fact that this won't do and we'll have to replace them. Should we expect the developer to do this for us?? Could I apply for a CCJ against them to cover the cost if they refuse (I expect they will). Any advise will be much appreciated!!!

  • Why are towels stuffer when you dry them on a clothesline than in a dryer?

    I am lucky where I live I can dry my laundry outside most of the year and I do. I have noticed the towels are often kind of stiff when I do, but will not be on rare occasions I use the electric dryer. I use the same laundry products (which includes a fabric softener) but I have never used any drier products. ... show more

What causes this??? They are good quality towels.

  • How to choose who to live with after death my parent?

    Best answer: At age 14, you should be getting close to the age where a spanking is probably going to be inappropriate. And quite frankly useless. I was spanked as a child, but only until I reached my teens. After that point, physical pain was no longer the trauma it once was. My father realized quickly that it was much more... show more
    Best answer: At age 14, you should be getting close to the age where a spanking is probably going to be inappropriate. And quite frankly useless. I was spanked as a child, but only until I reached my teens. After that point, physical pain was no longer the trauma it once was. My father realized quickly that it was much more effective to take away something I wanted as punishment. So if I disobeyed or got sassy, perhaps I spent the day in my room. When I did not take care of my bike and left it out where it was rained on or could have been stolen, I lost access to it for two weeks. That sort of thing.

    It certainly sounds like going to stay with your aunt is the better option, mainly because she actually wants you there, seems to love you, and you feel you'd like it better. Your dad will always be your dad through blood, but like you said, if he has not really been in your life and chose not to be there for you (did he see you or call you on birthdays, Christmas, that sort of thing?), then it's possible you'll fee like the ugly duckling, where he has his family and you are just "living there" until you become an adult, when you can decide to move out on your own.

    Your aunt seems like a reasonable person, and you even said "spanking as a last resort". So I'd say don't push her to the point that she would result in corporal punishment and you'll never have to deal with that. And remember, either way you choose, once you turn 18 you could try to get a job and move out on your own. And trust me that those four years will generally fly right by.

  • How can I reduce my power bill?

    Best answer: Turn the temp up to 72. AC consumes a lot of hydro. You might want to invest in a newer more efficient ac unit. If it's central,air that is by far your biggest user .

    Best answer: Turn the temp up to 72. AC consumes a lot of hydro. You might want to invest in a newer more efficient ac unit. If it's central,air that is by far your biggest user . Use a fan too cool u down . My wife does this to cool,her down . We actually keep,our air temp,at 74 but we have a small ac unit in her bedroom . I cut my usage by a third during the hot months .
    Keeping the rooms shaded from the sun helps . Plus we cook outside or at least do,not boil water or use the oven. Barbecueing outside as much as possible
    The lights are not a issue . They use little hydro.
    The wiring is not a issue .

  • Are the mushrooms that grow in your lawn safe for dogs to eat?

    Best answer: No. Dogs shouldn't eat mushrooms at all. Besides those things in your lawn are probably toad stools that are poisonous.

    I've had houseplants a while without this problem. I started growing spider plant cut offs in window boxes indoors and one of the cats has started digging them up. It also looks like since then they've started digging up a big plant I've got in the living room too. It is NOT due to the litter box being dirty, as far as I can tell they're not using the plants as a bathroom.

    My mother is a 36 year old, weighing a good 250 lbs and has serious water retention in her legs among other things that are making it difficult for her to walk. We bought the house we live in way before these problems arrised. As soon as we walk in the door, there is a small nine by nine foot of flat surface before being met with two stair cases: one that leads down to the basement and the other that leads up to the kitchen, bathroom, and bedrooms. My mom has to be helped in and out of bed, uses a cane to get up a curb or out of a parking lot (because the doctor won t give her a handicapped ticket for closer spaces) to get to stores, and can t help with anything around the house because she simply doesn t have the strength. She has a panic button now and can t even drive. Above all of this and more, her room is upstairs. My brother and I - who also live here - have been doing what we can, but we don t know how to get her up the stairs. She s been pushing through it so far and recently has taken to going up backwards by sitting on the steps. My brother lifts her by her belt loops while i move her feet up each step. We also dont have any money and are currently renting from our grandparents for $400 a month. So getting a new house is out of the question right now. I m looking into stairlifts, but the kind we d need for our stairs is close to $1000 which is four months of my paycheck. And I seriously doubt she can last another four months of those stairs. Any ideas? Please?
