Re: smoke detector that gets disconnected and reconnected every day
Replace it with a smoke detector that has a "hush" button. It will silence the detector for around 10 minutes. This will help prevent the situation of forgetting to put the battery back in.
Now, I don't know if it only hushes it when it first sounds, or if you can "pre-emptively" hush it.
The "Senior Member" designation under my name doesn't mean I know a lot, it just means I talk a lot.I've been a DIYer since I was 12 (thanks, Dad!). I have read several books on various home improvement topics. I do not have any current code books I can refer to. I was an apprentice plumber for two years.
