re: Issues with Pressure Washer - ThermoDynamicTiger
Definitely sounds like the water pump. Removal and Installation shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. It will probably run you $65-80. A couple tips for extending the life of your pump and carbs. 1. Do not idle your pressure sprayer for more than 30 seconds. If you aren't going to spray water for...

re: If this country fails to learn to bring 90% of mfg back home then we deserve whatever - ThermoDynamicTiger
Honestly, a very large majority of people dying from this are obese or have obesity related diseases. I hope it inspires Americans to change eating habits and get in shape. Fat people were already putting a major strain on our healthcare system. ...

re: Plumbing Quote - ThermoDynamicTiger
If you are in Baton Rouge, then I would call Ed The Plumber (2253412224). I would guess he would quote you $1,000-$1500 for what you are describing. This guy is awesome and he is a vet! Very clean and fast. ...

re: Think I have wasps in attic. Advice? - ThermoDynamicTiger
Get a can of bengal roach spray (gold). It works really well on wasps. It is a fog, so it doesn't require a direct hit. Just spray a decent amount up there. They will be very pissed off until they die....

re: Floor Cupping - ThermoDynamicTiger
Yea, I have a paint sprayer, so it shouldn't take too long. The caulking will be tedious. No moisture measurements were taken. The cupping is minor but noticeable. The old hardwood that was already installed in the house got refinished at the same time and has no cupping issues. Strange...

re: Floor Cupping - ThermoDynamicTiger
Yes, which is why I am going to try a heavy duty water sealant on the underside of the subfloor and caulk the seems along the floor joists. Hopefully, this can lock out the moisture seeping through the sub. Sounds like no one has done this or endorses this idea.......

I just had new hardwood floors installed and they are beginning to cup. This is a pier and beam home. Water does not pool under the house and it has great ventilation. Any ideas on how to fix this. I'm thinking about getting under there with a paint sprayer and coating the underside of the subfloor ...

Deep Fake Movies - ThermoDynamicTiger
I was watching some of these deep fake videos on youtube. One of them was for the new Han Solo movie. I thought it actually improved the movie significantly, and I wouldn't mind a total deep fake remake...and maybe a voiceover by Harrison ford. Would be pretty cool. Either way, the actor who played ...

re: biggest wasp nest ever inside my propane tank cover - ThermoDynamicTiger
Get a can of Bengal roach spray and empty it in there. Works just as well on wasps and penetrates every nook and cranny. The wasp spray requires a direct shot. The Bengal is more of a fog. ...

re: Wall Insulation...What is the consensus on the direction of faced wall batting? - ThermoDynamicTiger
