Toilet testing can be fun!!! Ed just returned from Greenbuild® 2013 and over 1500 people visited the Kohler toilet bus to see his demonstration. See the video for yourself and think about changing out your old, water-guzzling toilet for a new, high-efficiency Kohler toilet.
My friends at RotoZip® sent me a complimentary new tool so I could see the different ways I can “zip it” with RotoZip®. So far, I’ve “zipped” my lobster boat, I’ve “zipped it” in the kitchen, and I even “zipped it” in the shower! I’ve zipped it here, I’ve zipped it there, and found out I can zip it anywhere! It’s easy to use and it always gets the job done. Thank you, RotoZip®! For more information go to rotozip.com/zipit.
It’s been an exciting 2013. In the April edition of ShopSmart Magazine, published by Consumer Reports, my howdini.com video was voted one of the best home repair DIY videos. “Author and master contractor Ed Del Grande is encouraging and entertaining as he shows DIY novice, author, and TV personality Lisa Birnbach how to patch a hole in a wall in a few easy steps.” To see this award-winning video, just click here.
With the recent storms in the Northeast, not to mention winter weather, I’ve received a lot of questions about standby generators. You can click the “play” button, below, to see me explain how standby generators can work for your home and supply electricity during a short-term or long-term power outage.
Installing a new bathroom faucet? Here is Ed’s “Pro Tip.” Always hook up the pop-up assembly and sink drain connection first. Then, install the faucet body and make the water connections. This will eliminate the possibility (and mess) of the faucet running without the sink drain line connected. It happens more than you think!
