Cloudy water, also known as white water, is caused by air bubbles in the water. It is completely harmless.
It usually happens when it is very cold outside because the solubility of air in water increases as water pressure increases and/or water temperature decreases.
Cold water holds more air than warm water.
In the winter, water travels from the reservoir which is very cold and warms up during its travel to your tap. The air that is present is no longer soluble, and comes out of solution.
In addition, once water from our reservoir enters the transmission and distribution pipes, the water is pressurized. Water under pressure holds more air than water that is not pressurized.
Once the water comes out of your tap, the water is no longer under pressure and the air comes out of solution as bubbles (similar to a carbonated soft drink). The best thing to do is let it sit in an open container until the bubbles naturally disappear.February 19, 2007 at 7:13 pm in reply to: Sears Craftman Garage Door Opener #279934

Whenever I have a garage door problem I have found I should check the linkage from the opener to the door. If it gets a little loose things get out of ‘wack’ and the door wont open or just open a little bit. It may or may not be your problem but make it part of your general maintenance,you will thank yourself for it.December 28, 2006 at 9:49 pm in reply to: Light Swith Won’t Turn On/No Juice To Outlet #278243
it sounds like the ground fault has tripped on one of your outlets. Look and see if the outlet with the reset button has flipped. If it has push it in and all should be ok. If it keeps flipping off you need to get professional help or a friend that knows what they are doing.
im thinkin its too watery too as it dries there is nothing there so it cracks.
my humidifier on the furnace will detect the outside temp and add humidity accordingly. some humidifiers are manual and you set it to the outside temp yourself. As far as humidity tests you can get a decent one at the lumber yards but remember you usually get what you pay for.December 24, 2006 at 2:50 pm in reply to: how to cut roof rafters #278122December 19, 2006 at 5:27 pm in reply to: another water heater issue #278029
first go to the hot water heater and see on the top of it where the pipes go into the how water heater . One side is marked hot and the other side is marked cold. Make sure the cold water going into the heater goes into the spot marked cold. Cold water going into the side marked hot means you are dumping cold water on top of your hot water therfore cooling it off before you ever get any. Let us know if thats not it and we can help you somemore.December 17, 2006 at 7:49 pm in reply to: Need to remove hair from drainage pipe. #277962
I have done this to a snag i just couldn’t get with the snake. I used my wet vac at the drain and sucked the snag hair out really worked good so give it a try. Get some drain cleaner after you fix it and use according to instructions. May want to get a hair strainer for your bath-sink too. What doesn’t go into the drain doesn’t get caught!!
call the dealer or manufacture of the table and see if you an buy new edging . If so send them a sample of what you have and get it replaced. You can usually heat the old edging to get it to come off or use a solvent to remove it. To replace use contact cement or white glue taped well till it dries. Then of corse you will have tyo file the edging to get it smooth and even on top anbd bottom. The edging can be cut on a table saw if they wont send you just the proper size. Cut the laminate face side up so it doesnt chip as the blade cuts.. You can cut the short straight edge to match your starting point with tin snips.December 17, 2006 at 5:20 pm in reply to: bath tub liners #277959

sometimes the faucet assembly comes apart in the spout part of the faucet. You may be able to reassemble it or replace the faucet by taking the set screw out of the underside of the faucet itself. then unscrew the faucet and reinstall another after making sure you have the right one. It just screws onto a pipe sticking from the shower wall. really pretty simple once you see it.
