Our TV/Entertainment wall...

posted by: brownli on 02.09.2007 at 08:23 am in Kitchens Forum

Yes, I know this is not a kitchen....but it is/was part of our kitchen remodel as our kitchen is wide open to this room and wall. The wall is nearly complete - some finishing door trim is required. Remodeling is quite the process with a toddler about....but we have Nemo once again!

RE: water damage to my hw floor (Follow-Up #9)

Here's a link to the type I have. I have two of these under the kitchen sinks - just lay them down and when the bottom gets wet they go off. In the laundry room I have a remote model that uses a sensor on a wire, so you put the little sensor on the floor and the unit mounts to the wall. Then there's a remote alarm unit for it that I keep in the family room, as the laundry room door is usually closed when doing laundry. With that unit, both the component in the laundry room and the remote component in the family sound an alert when water is detected. Just search amazon for "water detector" and you'll get a lot of hits.

Here is a link that might be useful: water detector at amazon

Put in your restricted sites if using Internet Explorer. This prevents the little devil from sending scripts to your browser to make some ads pop-up. The instructions below will get rid of most other ads and for any browser on a windows based computer.

Press Start and then Run

Copy this phrase and paste into the run box --> notepad %windir%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

You should see something sorta like the text below - but has a different set of addresses and names - most likely it just says localhost. Copy and add all of the other lines below. X-out of notepad and press yes to save the file.

RE: Big, busy family...regular dishwasher or dishdrawers? (Follow-Up #13)

Bottom line, both setup will work. Both will have advantages and disadvantages.

I currently have DD's, and I love them. I don't understand how people cannot large items into a DD. I fit my 20 quart (i.e. 5 gallon) stock pot in to my DD. Yes, I have to pull out the racks, big deal, it takes about what-5 seconds to do that.

Every dishwasher has things that don't fit as well as they would in another DW. Small bowls are the hardest thing to cram into a DD, though with practice, I can get a lot more in now than I used to.

As to the flood sensor tripping and stopping operations, it's easy to resolve (it is generally caused by imporper loading). Turn off the power at the circuit breaker. Remove the bottom drawer, which takes a minute or so. Use rags to mop up any water you see. Use a hair dryer for about 5 minutes to remove what the rags cannot get. Reinstall drawer, turn power on, and problem resolved. Note that the DD's have flood sensors, which other machines do not have. My old GE flooded the floor frequently, but the DD's have never let a drop of water onto the kitchen floor.

But as I said, both will work.

yes, several people have both DD's and standard DW's in the same kitchen.
