Installing a Freeze Proof Sprinkler Water Supply

In this video I show you what’s needed and how to hook up a sprinkler water supply for a cold climate that freezes in the winter. This is the plumbing and all the components that connect the main water supply in a house to the in-ground sprinkler box that directs the water to each sprinkler zone. This includes a water shut-off, pressure vacuum breaker/backflow preventer, valves, air blow-out locations, and sprinkler manifold and valves.

Fixing a Cold Shower

In this video we show how to fix a shower that won’t get hot (the fix also works if it won’t get cold). All it takes is a screwdriver, pair of pliers, and a replacement cartridge!

Replacement cartridges can be found at most hardware stores or online.

The cartridge for this faucet is the Moen 1222:

A cartridge removal tool isn’t necessary but helps make this job even easier:

Installing 100,000 lumens of sweet, sweet LED goodness in the workshop.

Yikes! I recently moved into a new shop and the lighting is abysmal! To fix this I picked up two packs of LED light strips equal to 100,000 lumens! The install and process of hooking them up was super quick and easy. Adding better lighting to your workspace is guaranteed to increase your enjoyment of making things by at least 42%!
I installed 20 of the Barrina LED light fixtures (4′ long, 5000 lumens, 40 watts, 5000 kelvin) for a total of 100,000 lumens! The shop space is 620 square feet, and I thought perhaps that many lumens might be too much, but now that they’re installed Iā€™m super glad I went with that many light fixtures.
