re: Purchased house with older pool in BR - Want to have it inspected and need recs - DrewTheEngineer
I don't really have any recommendations for you (as far as inspectors/contractors go), but I'm curious as to the condition of the pool. My house was built in 1959, and when I bought it in 2005, the pool was in terrible condition. The plaster was bad, the coping blocks were loose and falling apa...

re: Pool questions - DrewTheEngineer

I drop 3 large cups of shock in every Thursday night, and keep 3 chlorine tablets in the floating chlorinator, and that is all it takes to keep the algae out. I buy all my chlorine at Sams. I also dro...

re: Radiant barrier insulation - does it really work? - DrewTheEngineer
I've had it for about 7 or 8 years now ... - My energy bills were never really excessive, but my air conditioner always struggled to keep the house cool, and that is why I put the barrier up. With the barrier, the air conditioner definitely seems to work less, and can keep up even on days over 95 ...
