  • Is it safe to plug a fridge into a power strip?

    My grandma has plugged her fridge into a power strip because she ran out of outlets in her kitchen, right now she only has one other thing on the power strip, like a toaster or something, and then she has I think a coffee maker on the other plug of the outlet, now obviously it's not overloaded with plugs, but this is a full size large refrigerator plugged into a probably ten year old power strip, she thinks it's fine but I'm kind of nervous about it, and this is a permanent thing now, is it safe or not so safe?

  • How come I hear all this popping and cracking in my house sometimes it sounds like it's coming from the attic?

    I'll be laying in bed in at like 5:30 in the morning I'll hear popping and cracking right near where the return is in the ceiling. It just comes from random spots in the house sometimes usually it sounds like it's coming from the attic.

  • Do you let your faucets drip in freezing temps?

    Everyone I know in the south lets their faucets drip in freezing temps. But I've heard you're only suppose to do that if you have exposed pipes. My bf use to live up north and he said they've never done that. So which is it? Let them drip, don't have to, or are there other factors to consider?

  • Does flex seal really work to seal leak on pipes?

    Best answer: Depends on what the pipe is made of (i.e. copper, aluminum, PVC, etc). Even then, it's not a permanent fix.

  • Noises in my wall and don t know what it s coming from?

    Anyone know what these noises are? Here is a video of what s going on. Fixed a pipe in the wall last week for a knocking noise, but this is different. My complex doesn t seem to think that this noise is from the water running. Anyone ever experience this before? https://youtu.be/5TCkKDrNtDs

  • What happens if you leave outdoor furniture out in the Winter?

    Best answer: The plastic resin chairs that I had left out eventually got faded and stained. The green chairs I had developed a milky washed out look. The cheap ones break because they become brittle in cold weather and will eventually crack more easily.

    Most patio furniture that has a glass table top uses tempered glass, so it is pretty durable and resistant to cracking. But nothing will save it if you have a chunk of ice drop from the gutters or roof top onto the glass. It will shatter into a million little pieces that you'll have to clean up when the snow melts.

    My advice would be to get yourself a corner of the shed and stack your patio stuff in there. Or get a tarp and bundle the stuff under that in a corner of the back yard where it can remain safe and undisturbed until spring.They sell special covers (looks a bit like a barbecue cover) for wicker furniture. At the price of these patio sets, seems like a small price to pay is to try and protect them a bit.

    I installed a security door for my entrance door. I received a letter from my community saying I violated the rules and asking me to remove. They are saying I can install only glass doors or retractable doors. Personally I'm not comfortable with glass doors as I don't feel safe. After installing the security door, I'm feeling very safe and secured. What to do now? Is there anyway I can keep my door in place.
