Posted by John on October 30th, 2016

In today’s post, I’m going to share with you some lessons learned about changing a faucet on a pedestal sink.  This project should’ve been much easier and frankly, I should have finished  it much sooner than I planned, but I made a big rookie mistake.  In this post, I’m going to share that mistake with you […]

Adding a Reverse Osmosis System

Posted by John on September 5th, 2012

It’s time to say goodbye.  It’s been a long time coming.  This relationship is wasteful.  There are better options out there.  It’s true.  We’re finally kicking the bottled water habit and switching to a reverse osmosis system (ROS).  At any given time over the past year, you could find 5-10 empty bottles of Dasani or […]
