re: Anyone on here not know how to swim? - PSU2LSU
When I moved to Baton Rouge and bought a house with a pool I had to take swim lessons as an adult at Crawfish. That lady (Nan) that teaches the kids is really nice to the kids. She's down right mean and hurtful if your an adult and don't listen. After a week with her I still can't swim, but if I ...

re: Where can I buy Kerdi boards for bathroom remodel in BR? - PSU2LSU
Kerdi is a waterproof membrane typically used in shower enclosures. Far superior to any other method when it was introduced. It's very difficult to install and very pricey. 10 years ago it wouldn't be unheard of for someone that knew how to install a Kerdi shower to charge $10k+. Last shower ...

re: Police, crime scene tape, Shenandoah - PSU2LSU
The family that lives on the corner of Bluewater and George O'neal by all accounts seemed like a normal middle class family in Baton Rouge. I've talked to the dad a few times during the flood. If I remember correctly he's a plant worker. Oldest Son joined the armed forces and they have several ot...

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: 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 ...
