    The download says "Input current @ 12.2 kW 200/208/240/480 V, 1-PH 70/68/58/29 , 200/208/240/480/600 V, 3-PH 42/40/35/18/17 A.

    So assuming your are talking about residential 240v single phase, you need a circuit rated for 58 amps, so a 60A breaker with #4 wire if wired with sheathed cable (NM,UF), or #6 if installed with USE or pipe and wire.

  • My resident manager says using a bath mat ruined the finish of my bathtub. Is she right?

    Best answer: Only if you're wrapping something heavy (like pool balls) up in the mat and then hitting the bathtub with it. I'll assume you weren't doing that, so no, it does not sound right. It doesn't even make sense. If she's trying to charge you for the repair just google the specific tub and see if... show more

Otherwise ring a tenants advisory service and tell them what's happened and what recourse you have.

    Here are the photos: https://s22.postimg.org/js4x1ndwh/shower... https://s16.postimg.org/k00oohu05/shower... https://s15.postimg.org/ktuskv0gb/shower... Any expert in plumbing in here? I have a water leak inside the wall, behind the shower control knob. After I took out the cover of the shower knob, I can see some water leaking very slowly at the joint from the hot water pipe connecting to the shower valve. A contractor said he needs to cut out the old shower valve and put in a new one. This will require welding. The problem is the current opening is 6 inch by 4 inch. He needs a bigger opening to do the work. This means that some shower tiles will need to be cut. I don't know if he's just saying that to charge a lot more money. Is it possible to just re-seal that leaking joint through welding at that joint, without cutting out the old shower valve and without cutting out some tiles that this contractor is suggesting? Thanks.

I also heard it's good to wash them inside out, is that true. Please give me some tips so that my pants stop fading, so they always look brand new, thanks!
