re: OT Plumbers : question of soldering a water line - PSU2LSU
As another poster mentioned you can just use a sharkbite. If you have zero tools then you can still do this for around $50-$60. Need a adjustable wrench, pipe cutter and the sharkbite hose. I helped installed two water heaters this year and even though I can solder I just find it easier to do a s...

re: OT mechanics - PSU2LSU
That's up to you. Toyota service will cost more but the techs are trained from the factory. You might save 10%'20% going to a place like firestone but you won't know what kinda tech you are getting. If you can find a good independent then go that route other wise I would use the dealer ...

re: Purchasing a gas trimmer online? - PSU2LSU
I ended up buying mine local at Dave's equipment in Denham. Same price as Home Depot but he took care of all the warranty paperwork and told me to just bring it in if there are any problems and he would take care of it. Of course I was just choosing between Home Depot and a local small engine ...

re: Tile Shower Cost - PSU2LSU
Make sure you hire someone that know so what they are doing. A Kerdi shower is the best but if you are worried about costs there are other really good cost effective ways to do correctly. Pouring shower pans is a lost art, the old timers are dying off and the new installers just buy styrofoam or ...

re: Best Bug Out Vehicle - PSU2LSU
It depends in what area of the country you are in and where you are headed. Too many variables. In Lousiana we will probably be running from water either a flood of hurricane. I would think a diesel truck with lift kit would be perfect. I noticed during hurricane Isaac that there was a run on gas...

re: Suggestions for getting new tires? - PSU2LSU
Allied tire on Staring Lane. They've always given me the best deals after shopping around. If you aren't local then Costco/Sam's is the way to go. I've read that Costco Sam's sells a lower quality tire then its competitors. But I've always doubted these claims. I don't think Michelin is runn...

re: how long can you drive with an alternator that is failing? - PSU2LSU
Unless it's something like a Ford Escape it should only take an hour or two tops with basic hand tools. The only special tool you may need is a serpentine belt removal tool but you don't need it. Just makes the job easier. Harbor freight quality tools, YouTube, and two hours and most people coul...

re: What can you baws tell me about Zachary? - PSU2LSU
It's a small town, relatively crime free, decent schools depending on the level of your children. Not a lot of great shops but they have a Home Depot and Walmart. The ace hardware and Amrhein hardware in town are decent if you want more personalized service. They've opened a few decent places...
