Post  Frank Merkl on December 31st 2014, 10:53 pm

You better be handy !!!  Wake up Tuesday morning to the sound of the water pressure system running , Guess what ? the hot water tank decided to Expire !! After a run to the local hardware store for a new tank and some wet vaccing  ,some pipe fitting (natural gas line) plumbing water lines we have a new hot water tank installed !

and because I'd bought the wifey New kitchen lino for Christmas, today I installed that and be damned it looks really good !


Damn this should be good for some brownie points !!

cheers The new race car is awesome...Kitchen looking great, insurance will need a plumber to sign off on the gas in AB call in a favor or send a pm, if the lino was replaced in 68 it contains asbestos, so don't rip it up when you want to replace it go over top with new subfloor Wink

Happy New Year cheers

as for the asbestos , well hell you only like once !! it wasn't glued down - just moved the fridge and stove out ,pulled the base boards ,rolled it up , rolled it out on the new lino , traced it cut it out with mods to make it fit better , rolled it up and layed it in place , fit perfect !! Not to worried about asbestos as the one auto repair shop I worked in for 10 years had asbestos spray on insulation on the roof and walls . When they tested the place after nothing happening in the shop for a week( wcb shut the shop down for testing) , the test results showed 700 x the allowable exposure limit for a 8 hr period !!! and I stole a copy of the test result for future reference as with workmans comp you can not sue your employer 11

Damn, I guess it's a blessing that the women find me sexy as I have never been able to do tile.
