    Re: Loose disposer rotor

    Unless you know someone who can look at it for free, you're probably better off just getting a new one. Depending on how fancy of a model you want, you can easily get one for less than $100.

    Re: Automatic Gutter Cleaning Vehicle

    While expensive, I'm intrigued by this little gadget - also, the cost is much cheaper than the hospital bill from me falling off the side of my house.

    Re: Sweating toilet

    My former house had the valves and I can attest that they work well and from what I've read are really the best solution to the problem. Pretty easy to install too if you have access to your pipes.
