• Can anyone install a Gas oven? (UK)?

    Recently moved into my first flat and I’d like to replace the electric oven with a gas one. The gas pipe is directly behind the current oven, will I need to get it professional installed or can I do it myself?

  • Are flexi hoses recommended for toilets?

The hoses can bend, but should never be used to make sharp turns. Find one the correct length so that it attaches from the valve to... show more

  • Is there a sealant that can adhere thin steel mesh to pvc or brick?

    Best answer: If you are using SEALANTS, that is the problem. You want the ADHESIVE to penetrate both items you are seeking to bond. The purpose of a sealant is to PREVENT such penetration.
    In short, a good sealant PREVENTS good adhesion.

  • I need to find thin weatherproof cord...?

    I need to find thin cord that won't rot from sun or weather. I make and sell ceramic birdhouses and I have been using a waxed poly cord that doesn't always hold up as long as I would like. Due to the nature of the design metal wire is NOT an option. I need to be able to knot the stuff and finish it off with decorative metal beads. For this reason plastic cording is not feasible either since it can't be knotted easily. I've considered Kevlar but am concerned about fraying since it can't be melted and not sure how UV resistant it is. I also prefer a more natural color like brown or tan and Kevlar only seems to be available in a dirty yellow or black. So here's what I am hoping to find: *UV stable, *weather resistant, *1 mm thick (approx) pliable and able to hold a knot. *Ends can be sealed or won't fray *Preferably available in brown or tan Looking for educated suggestions. TIA

  • Using Quikrete fast setting and water?

    Best answer: If you want those posts to be strong you fill the hole with Quikrete then pour in the water.

    Can I catch something by squatting over a toilet seat? I've been doing it my whole life without a care in the world so the only reason I'm asking is because I noticed a hair on a public toilet seat. This next part is kind of embarrassing but sometimes the pee runs off to the side when i squat so i put a piece of toilet paper on my thigh to keep it from flowing down my leg and sometimes the very tip of that piece of toilet paper touches the toilet seat but I'm careful not to let it touch me. Am I still safe?

  • Circuit breaker is 15 Amp. Can I install power outlet rated at 20 Amp through that curcuit breaker rated at 15 Amp?

    Best answer: What a 20 Amp rating on a power outlet means is that the power outlet can operate safely at currents between 0 Amp and 20 Amps. If the circuit has a 15 Amp breaker, then the circuit will not ever have any currents higher than 15 amps --- so that s just fine. That outlet is a little "over-specified" for... show more

    If the circuit has a 15 Amp breaker, then the circuit will not ever have any currents higher than 15 amps --- so that s just fine. That outlet is a little "over-specified" for that circuit. It's like using a chain rated at 20,000 lb to lift a 15,000 lb object.

    What you can not do is replace that 15 Amp breaker with a 20 Amp breaker, because the wiring between the breaker and the outlet may be rated at only 15 Amps (an electrician could check this).
