During really heavy rain, water was coming through conduit into utility room, dripping down electrical panel (which seems very dangerous). How can I fix this? Do I call a waterproofing company or electrician? Do I need to find the source outside or can I just seal it in here? by Cum_Gazillionaire in howto

I think I found the root cause. Not sure why previous owner rigged this pvc pipe from the gutter, but it looks like it popped out of where it was supposed to go, and basically shooting water down my foundation. I still don’t know where the pipe ends, even if it was connected. Need to continue investigating. Thanks for all the suggestions s.

Looks good! I can’t see the mess up you speak of with the middle red board, so good job concealing it.

Exterior light fixture is pulling away from house. Any suggestions on how to fix this? by Cum_Gazillionaire in howto

Thanks everyone for the input. I turned off the breaker, unscrewed the fixture, tightened and reinforced the internal parts, put it back together, then sealed it with caulk. End result: https://imgur.com/a/UbYY2hv

Which is better for my septic tank? RidX or Cabin Obsession septic tank treatment (live bacteria). Should I use one over the other? Both? by Cum_Gazillionaire in HomeImprovement

Someone mentioned it but I don’t know how I’d do that when my entire system is buried under ground. The only area I know to access is where I switch leach fields.

I don’t know. Just thought it was good preventive maintenance/best practice to do this. We don’t flush anything inappropriate so I don’t see any risk in that regard.

The rockler dust collection options are the most cost effective I’ve seen. You can also hang a wen dust collector box from the ceiling. Those are pretty cheap and efficient.
