How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The ADA says that grab bars should be installed horizontally between 33 inches and 36 inches maximum above the finished floor to the top of the gripping surface (section 609.4). This is likely due to average height and common usage.
A 42 inches (1065 mm) minimum length grab bar is required on the side wall, spaced a maximum of 12 inches (305 mm) from the back wall and extending a minimum of 54 inches (1370 mm) from the back wall at a height of 33-36 inches (840-915 mm).
Grab bars are usually available in two common diameters – 1 ¼ inch and 1 ½ inch. If you have joint issues or smaller hands, a grab bar with a smaller diameter may be easier to grip. Otherwise, 1 ½ inch is standard and most often encountered in public settings where you may find grab bars.
All grab bars should be installed with 1.5 inches of space between the grab bar and the wall.
Horizontal grab bars offer better leverage when you are trying to get out of a bathtub or up and down from a toilet, but a grab bar placed at a 45 degree angle to the toilet or bathtub`s rim is better when trying to accommodate people of different heights . Angling your grab bar has an additional advantage.
Vertical grab bar placement is helpful near the outside edge of a shower or forward of a toilet area to offer balance and leverage. Horizontal grab bars work well alongside toilet spaces and on the longer wall of a bathtub or shower.
Grab bars shall be installed in a horizontal position, 33 inches (840 mm) minimum and 36 inches (915 mm) maximum above the finish floor measured to the top of the gripping surface, except that at water closets for children`s use complying with 604.9, grab bars shall be installed in a horizontal position 18 inches (455 …
Grab bars are intended to assist with balance and support for those who may require minimal to moderate assistance while performing sit-to-stand, stand-to-sit and sit-to-sit transfers. Handrails are intended to assist a person at risk of slipping or falling when moving in indoor and outdoor environments.
A vertical grab bar 18 inches (455 mm) minimum in length shall be mounted with the bottom of the bar located 39 inches (990 mm) minimum and 41 inches (1040 mm) maximum above the floor, and with the center line of the bar located 39 inches (990 mm) minimum and 41 inches (1040 mm) maximum from the rear wall.
(a) A horizontal grab rail placed at approx. 700mm from above floor level is a good height for most people when getting up from the toilet. A vertical grab rail, placed at approx. 800mm above the floor, can give you extra support when pulling up from a seated position.
“Grab bars are safety devices designed to enable a person to maintain balance, lessen fatigue while standing, hold some of their weight while maneuvering or have something to grab onto in case of a slip or fall. A caregiver may use a grab bar to assist with transferring a patient from one place to another.
A vertical grab bar 18 inches (457 mm) minimum in length shall be mounted with the bottom of the bar located between 39 inches (991 mm) and 41 inches (1041 mm) above the floor, and with the center of the bar located between 39 inches (991 mm) and 41 inches (1041 mm) from the rear wall.
The weight-bearing capacity of a grab bar: In public spaces, in particular, to be ADA compliant, the grab bar that is to be installed must be able to hold 250 lbs or 114 kgs (approximately).
Grab bars next to a toilet help people using a wheelchair transfer to the toilet seat and back to the wheelchair. They also assist people who have difficulty sitting down, have balance problems while seated or need help rising from a seated position.
Grab bars can be installed on any surface—drywall, tile, fiberglass, stone, concrete and wood paneling—as long as they are secured with screws or fasteners directly into a wood stud. This guide offers a step-by-step guide to help you install grab bars in your bathroom.
What Are Grab Bars? Grab Bars, also known as safety rails, handrails, shower bars, etc., are secure rails, typically mounted on the wall, ceiling, or floor, to help weakened, disabled, or elderly individuals safely access and navigate rooms and facilities.
There are three common types of grab rails available in the market – Straight, Angled, and Folding grab rails.
A grab rail is a safety device designed to enable users to maintain their balance, reduce fatigue while standing, and support users` weight when moving between two places. They are commonly installed in high-risk areas such as bathrooms to reduce the possibility of slipping or falling.
With no blocking or wall studs required, this fastener is fire retardant and installs completely waterproof in both new and existing construction, used extensively in commercial, institutional and residential grab bar installations.
Handicare`s Door frame grab rail has been specially designed to be installed on a door frame; the extremely narrow flange is only 30 mm wide. Door frame grab rail is available in three lengths, all made from coated steel and available in neutral white colour only.

Leaks bar oil
ANSWER : The chainsaw squirts oil into the oil hole in the bar. The chain picks up the oil and carries it all the way around the bar lubing it and the chain. When you quit running the saw there is still a lot of oil on the chain and all away around the chain guide in the bar. Once you quit running it and it sets a while all the oil will follow gravity and run to the bottom of the bar and drip out into the case. It’s just another one of life’s little nuisances. Have a nice day! Obwhon

Regarding a saniflo macerator installation, this is my second post in the last couple of days. Installation was done by a licensed plumber. Brief background: after the installation was complete, the pump appeared to very noisey to me; when the sink ran, the toilet gurgled and vice versa when the toilet was flushed; also, I saw that the plumber had used several short elbows on the discharge pipe as follows doing initially a horizontal run from the macerator discharge outlet of some 18 inches then vertically up about 30 inches then horizontally some 20 inches and again vertically going down to connect to a Y on the hanging sewer line. Also the discharge line is not strapped, and vibrates/moves as the macerator is engaged. At the time of my first post, I did not realize that he had used an Oatey AAV for venting purposes. Based on the responses from FixYa on my first post, I did some more research on this installation. Also spoke with a tech from Saniflo a couple of times. The configuration of the discharge as currently in place appears to be a major problem. From what I now understand, the discharge should come out the macerator on an elbow going vertically then into a bend horizontally into a Y connection on the sewer line. Am I understanding this correctly and is this the way that the plumber should remediate his prior discharge install? According to Saniflo and another plumber that I talked with, the AAV or any mechanical device cannot be used to vent the Sanibest macerator. I have an unused side wall vent (3″ PVC pipe) at the corner of the basement about 4-5 feet from the macerator. I was told that I could use that to vent the macerator correctly or I could tie into the vent pipe that vents my kitchen sink. That vent pipe is about 8 feet downstream from the macerator, not the best location but accessible. Do either of these vent locations appear viable to use? Last but not least, is there any other venting that needs to be in place with the sink and toilet that run into the macerator? I would like to hear back on these questions from someone who has some definitive experience with these Sanibest installs. I appreciated the prior responses from my first post because they started to point me in the right direction. I want to be as informed as possible when the plumber comes back to remediate this original install. Thanks much.
ANSWER : Here you can find the recommended installation instructionshttp://www.saniflo.co.uk/pdf/install/SANIBEST.pdfTo put it simply the venting in your installation has been done incorrectly and the fact that the pipes were left unsecured to the wall should have been the giveaway – that plumber was just a hack.Yes, if the Y discharge is considerably lower than the macerator the AAV must be used. But only in this case – in all the others its unnecessary. You never said were this aerator is situated but it appears that (since you hear gurgling), it’s not at the top of the loop where it should be.Yes, you could use that extra vent. No, no extra venting should be used – the proper installation is explained in the diagrams on the link above at page 4.Yes, call another plumber to do the install properly.

No bar oil circulating… ran without the bar on and there is not enough bar oil coming out. checked the reservoir and cleaned bar- no gunk… how do i get the plate off to inspect the tiny compartment where the bar oil is let out at the chain? at the crank shaft i see that it is reversed threaded, but do i have to undo the spring clamp system or can i just unthread the breaking mechanism or whatever it is on the end of the crank shaft… if so do i have to use the trick with the spark plug and string to keep the shaft from turning while unscrewing the top part?
ANSWER : The item on the end of the crankshaft is the clutch (inner part) and also part of the chain brake (the outer part of the clutch drum). There should be an oil-volume adjustment screw located under the case near where the chain returns to the engine. Turn it CCW somewhat to increase oil volume. Be sure to clean the small oil passages that run from the large holes in the drive end of the bar out to the chain groove on each bar edge. The correct way to set it is have everything assembled, start the engine and run at speed for a few moments with the bar tip near some cardboard–it should throw off a thin line of oil. Hope this helps!
