It's not a bad leak, but it is dripping about every two minutes when the water is running. (it's not like a "turn the spigot" to stop the leak. It's more along the lines of "it's leaking from the pipe connection points") Am I responsible for contacting a plumber or do I call the city water department and have them come out and fix it?

  • Do you loose your socks in laundry?

    It happens to me all the time. It is just a matter of a couple of weeks before I see some socks are not in pairs, or completely missing. Just take them to the washer and dryer a couple of times, and they are gone. Do you experience this as well, or am I doing something stupid

    Guess the title pretty much sums it up.. I recently received an old axe from a friend; The handle was cracked right at the neck, and I decided To fix it up rather than let him throw it out. I'm a decent carpenter and could easily have it fixed up if it weren't for the wood still in the head. It's coming out, but man! what a pain! The lumber in the head is splintered, frayed and coming out in little pieces. Any suggestions on getting the rest of it out quick and preferably clean?

  • UK. I'm having a problem with silverfish in my bathroom. Obviously I wash the floor and vacuum in there, but right now I seem to kill?

    one or two most evenings. Can anybody recommend a good spray (I don't mind about it being 'chemical' I just need rid of 'em). I do keep the window open a lot during the daytime and nothing is leaking in there. Thanks

    So on April 22nd we moved into a house. I asked if there was bedbugs and the leasing agent told me no and that they spray after every tenant leaves. I was then told that they dont spray and never have at our rental property. I talked to the tenant who lived here before me and they said they had to move due to the bedbugs and rid all their belongings and that they sprayed for them and roaches. The landlord said he will return the deposit but not the first months rent even though we lived there 2 days before receiving around 100 bites. 4 people live in the residence one of them is pregnant and she got the most bites. her fiance is on disability he has a prosthetic leg. They said they would spray may 1st but we CANNOT stay there it is inhabitable. we are 18, 19, 21, and 23. Can we win a civil case against him?

  • Is it ok for someone to remove your clothes from the washer the minute that the machine stops?

    Best answer: Public Laundry etiquette, says No! Unless it is the owner of the establishment.
    I doubt the police will be interested unless an item is stolen, damaged, or an affray starts.

Any opinions?
