    What kind of drainage solution for the sink in my cabin discarding grey water directly to my backyard? I don't have plumbing system down in my yard. My yard is big and i only use the cabin very occasionally, that is why I want to do it this way. My question is what kind of pipes should I use and how do I prevent insects from coming into the drain pipe? Here is my proposal. I will install PVC p trap underneath the sink, drill a big hole in the wall, and connect the P Trap to a straight PVC pipe that goes through the wall and sticks out to the exterior of the wall. Then I will connect an accordion pipe to the PVC pipe opening to direct the water further away from the structure. I will buy a pipe cap at the end of the pipe, and cut out an opening and glue a window screen to stop insect from going in. Please don't laugh at me. I know there must be something stupid in my proposal. I really do not know much about plumbing. Sharing some ideas would be highly appreciated.

  • Why do tool manufacturers insist on shrinking set sizes and putting them in crappy blow molded cases?

    It used to be you could buy a large set of tools in a cardboard box with the tools in plastic bags and just put the sets together on socket rails at home.

    It used to be you could buy a large set of tools in a cardboard box with the tools in plastic bags and just put the sets together on socket rails at home. Now every set has been shrunk down and comes in stupid blow molded cases that are junk or even worse is the damn foam drawer inserts that never fit anyone's tool box and waste 80 percent of your drawer space. Then, the marketing hype on the shitty cases is just laughable. I went tool shopping and walked out empty handed because the manufacturers have lost their minds.

  • What GFCI outlet do I need?

    I am trying to replace my GFCI outlet because I am having issues with it tripping when trying to run anything higher ampage like a chop saw. I had the garage rewired 2 years ago, and never had an issue till recently when trying to use a heater, and now nothing above a light or a 5 amp freezer will run. I got a tester and the GFCI tested fine, but I can't figure out what the problem is. Looking at the other outlets in the garage, I noticed the electrician used 15 amp outlets which are all daisy chained from the GFCI. The garage is wired with 12 gauge wire and in my breaker box is shown to be 20 amp rated. The problem is when I looked at the GFCI, one side said "120v 60Hz 20amp" while on the opposite side of the plug holes it also says "GFCI Class A 15A Recept". So I have no idea what it is, is it a 20a or a 15a or both? I can't find any other ones that have both 15 and 20 amp marked on it like this one. Also since the garage is rated at 20amp per breaker panel, and the wire is gauged at 12, should all my outlets be 20 amp rated? Did the electrician screw me and throttle my plugs (in a garage where ampage draw is expected to be higher) or is this standard? I thought lights were intended to be put on 15a, but outlets should be on 20a if able?

  • Those liquid air freshener for car vents,?

    Could you use one of those for an electronic heat baseboard to make house smell good too. On low heat 1-10 the heat would be on 2-3. Or would it melt after all it will be on 24/7 unlike the car heating system.

  • How much concrete for a 4x4 post hole?

    Best answer: This stuff comes in a set size bag. About 40lbs. You can get away with one bag per post but I always use two to make sure of a secure fix. If you are doing more than one post one and a half bags per post will be fine.

  • Why is it such a strange concept to other 16 year olds that my family likes to raise and grow our own meat and veggies ?

    Best answer: Just is a very healthy way to eat and live. More people should do that. The food you grow yourself has mire nutrients and and fewer chemicals that anything you buy at a supermarket.
