  1. Re: Installing portable dishwasher under-cabinent

    Ok, I got everything hooked up, and unless you are completely incompetent with making water hose connections, no plumber, soldering, or other special skills needed. The local home center had a...
  2. Re: Installing portable dishwasher under-cabinent

    Thank you, that was very helpful. My garbage disposal does have a dishwasher drain port on it, so I THINK that provides the air gap. And then knowing that what I am looking for is called a T helps a...
  3. Re: Installing portable dishwasher under-cabinent

    That's all I need here as well - as I've said a couple of times, there is NOTHING special/different about this dishwasher now that I have removed the roll-around cabinet it was installed in before....
  4. Re: Installing portable dishwasher under-cabinent

    Thanks for the replies. Obviously I do not want to jury-rig this, that's why I'm asking what I need to do it properly. And yes, I am putting a DW under the counter - the only difference between my...
  5. Re: prevent condensation of refrigerator cooling line?

    Actually, no, the problem was never truly resolved. What I ended up doing was wrapping a rag around the problematic hose and zip-tying it in place. Works well enough, I suppose :)
  6. Installing portable dishwasher under-cabinent

    I have a kenmore model 66517769K600 portable dishwasher which I am trying to install under-counter. At one time they made a conversion kit that came with instructions for doing this (Whirlpool model...
  7. prevent condensation of refrigerator cooling line?

    I had my refrigerator pulled out today to clean behind it (trying to track down the source of all the little fruit flies we have been having recently, actually), and I noticed a small copper hose,...

    Re: Fertilizing conundrum

    Yes, that makes sense, thanks. The only problem is that it doesn't align with anything else I've heard, so it leaves me still more confused than I was to begin with :) That is, you are saying the...

    Fertilizing conundrum

    I'm putting in a new lawn, and I'm getting a lot of conflicting information about fertilizing. If I recall correctly from TOH shows I've seen, they recommend using a "starter fertilizer". I want to...

    Re: bifold door opening size?

    As it turns out, you are absolutely correct - the doors labeled as 30"x80" were sized to fit a 30"x80" opening. The doors themselves were somewhat smaller to fit with all the hardware. I did exactly...

    Re: bifold door opening size?

    Finished surfaces - I'm wanting to add doors to the existing laundry cubbyhole in my house. I would just ask at the store, but the doors I'm looking at are at lowes, and I haven't always had the best...

    Ok, I got it. It did just unscrew, it just took a bit more force than I was willing to apply without being sure. Thanks!

    bifold door opening size?

    If I am trying to fill a 60"x (approximately) 81.5" opening, I can get two 30" bi-fold doors to fit the width perfectly (I would assume), but I'm not quite clear on the required height. The standard...

    Tub strainer w/pop-up plug?

    Our tub drain frequently (like, every month) gets clogged with my wife's hair. It seems to me that the easiest solution would be to put a strainer over the drain to catch the hair before it can go...

    Re: TOH episode Question

    Actually, I also remember seeing that on TOH. And I believe they called it "Mineral Wool" Rather than "Rock Wool", although from a google search it appears it can be called either. Don't remember the...

    Poll: Re: Adding attic insulation questions

    My concern with Cellulose is that I've been told the fire retardant leaches out over time - so while it may be completely non-flammable when I first put it in (as you say, even taking a blow torch to...

    Re: Good place for insulation advice?

    Thanks for the suggestions. The last one about shooting at the ceiling looks the most promising - perhaps I'll try that first in a small area, and if it doesn't appear to be working, back off and try...
