• How far away can a public pool be smelled?

    I’m considering buying an apartment. It’s pretty perfect - good price, size, daylight, green yard and all - but it is about 500 meters (0.3 miles) from a place that will have two large community swimmingpools in the summer months. Will I be able to smell this at all? I have very strong chlorine and chloramine... show more

Will I be able to smell this at all? I have very strong chlorine and chloramine sensitivity and any smell at all would be a huge problem. How far can pool chemicals travel?

  • I have a continuous bathroom fan that never turns off, the breaker even lists it as a continuous fan. Is this common and/or needed?

    Best answer: Along with sealing up buildings the building codes have included ACH (air changes per hour) requirements to remove stale and contaminated air that include residential buildings. Often the value needed is accomplished by putting timers on fans that are programmed to operate enough hours for the CFM rating of the fan... show more
    Best answer: Along with sealing up buildings the building codes have included ACH (air changes per hour) requirements to remove stale and contaminated air that include residential buildings. Often the value needed is accomplished by putting timers on fans that are programmed to operate enough hours for the CFM rating of the fan to accomplish that rating.

    Maybe they calculated the CFM needed, divided by 24 and bought a fan that barely met the requirement.

    Often times owners disable those fans after occupancy.

  • What should i do in this situation about LED lighting?

    Best answer: Unless you plan spending all day in the communal areas, why would you think this would affect eye health? The only thing I have heard of is that LED doesn't give off infrared radiation (which is considered beneficial to some people) but that is hardly a downside when you consider the reduction in running costs... show more
    Best answer: Unless you plan spending all day in the communal areas, why would you think this would affect eye health? The only thing I have heard of is that LED doesn't give off infrared radiation (which is considered beneficial to some people) but that is hardly a downside when you consider the reduction in running costs and only really applies to incandescent light which is unlikely to be used in maintained lighting. Fluorescent is considered more likely to affect vision than LED; I think you are worrying unnecessarily.

  • How much roughly is it to get a Christmas wreath made in UK?

    Best answer: I have no idea but you can call several florists and ask them. It would depend on how big you want it and what you want it made out of. I know in the states a basic 1 can be as little as $10 and an elaborate one can be over $100.

    I went on a trip a couple days ago, and came back and placed my luggage on my bed. in the midst of putting it up I felt a bite on my foot!! it was a little brown dot. I then realize my bed had a few crawling around. I put my luggage & it’s contents in plastic bags and washed/dryed my sheets immediately. I even vacuumed my mattress and bed. I at first thought it was bed bugs I had brought in from my trip after googling a bit. For these past few nights I thought i have felt safe in bed. But I just noticed about five more little ones on the side of my bed when I got up. I also have a dog who goes outside frequently, so maybe they are baby ticks. Although I never had this problem before my trip? https://imgur.com/a/4hbP5iL That is an image of one. I have decided to keep my dog outside. What else should I do to get rid of these annoying buggers? Don’t really have the money for an exterminator....

  • Would drinks attract rats to out building.?

    Best answer: The rats can't smell cans that haven't been opened. However, I had a rat make a nest in the nice warm spot where the heat exchanger and motor is behind the freezer.
