Re: Building a house in Trinidad

Drill a hole and use right or left cutting (green or red grip) aviation shears.

I've also used a jigsaw with a fine-toothed metal cutting blade and a carbide blade but that is always noisy and sometimes frustrating when you start breaking blades.

With all due respect, that simply will not disperse the septic tank effluent as intended for a soak away. They built you a tank that only serves to slow down discharge into the overflow drain. The base should be stone and not cast, the walls should be voided and not plastered. If your water table is...

Assuming that these are interior walls: Prime the wall again and let it dry overnight. Although expensive, Drylok or anoth...

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

If the old wall was previously painted, the quality of the gypsum mud skim will depend entirely on how well your contractor does his work. I've seen good and not good. If the wall gets exposed to moisture, the results will not be good. Personally, if the existing wall is concrete, poorly plastered a...

Re: Building a house in Trinidad

Gypsum mud or drywall joint compound offers little to no structural integrity. If both walls are clay or concrete block, the walls would typically be cleated together then the new block would be plastered with concrete mud. It is the concrete plaster applied to the surface of clay block that makes t...

The manual transmission is becoming less and less prevalent. Many manufacturers have seen the option take rate drop to less than 10% for the manual.

Automotive weather stripping is EPDM rubber or silicone rubber. WD40 penetrants evaporate to leave behind a film of mineral oil. WD40 not being a lubricant is a popular myth. It's simply not a very effective lubricant. WD40 works well at treating automotive weather stripping. Silicone is excellent f...

In general, yes. All things being equal, a baffled tank or a twin tank will work better at scum sequestration than a single tank with no baffle. No matter what the design, the best safeguard against a failed septic system is over-capacitization. In my experience, few are willing to shoulder the extr...
