It all depends on the soil conditions, you want to consider the size of your gravel that you use for your french drain and next thing is,
few days before you start to dig your drainage make sure you should contact your local utility company and driveway contractors. Recently, my husband and I just moved into a new house in Long Island area, and I wanted to install a French drain which would help me to hold water. So I got in contact with the local utility company and driveway Long Island contractors to have all the underground utility lines of our property which are located and marked.

Information about clematis plant.


Clematis is a wonderful flowering vine that is known to many
in the gardening world as the "Queen of the Climbers".

While clematis takes a few years to establish a strong root
base before it hits it\'s stride in the blooming department, it is definitely worth
the wait.

This plant climbs up to 12 feet high and spreads 3 to 4 feet
wide.


If planting more than one follow the steps below spacing the
plants 3 to 4 feet apart.



In the spring or early summer, dig a hole one foot deep and one foot wide.




Mix the soil from the hole with compost, working it until it maintains a loose
rich texture.

Ideally this should leave you with a very dark soil.





Create a mound in the bottom of the hole using the
enriched soil.


Place the plant above the mound and allow the roots to trail
over the mound.




Cover the roots and fill in the hole with the enriched
soil, keeping the crown of the plant about 2 inches below the soil level.

This plant likes shade on the bottom and sun on the top.




Water at planting and regularly for the first season,( I
prefer to water in the morning or evening and do so every other day.) after
that you should only need to water in extreme dryness and drought.



Install a piece of trellis or fencing behind the Clematis
to give it support as it grows and a foothold for climbing.



To promote blooming and keep your Clematis healthy, prune
as needed after the blooming season, and in preparation for the blooming season
prune in late March each year.

Floor board is wet on driver side front and rear


Check the weatherstripping around the door. Also look under the dash board for signs of water leaking from the firewall. If your weatherstripping isn't damaged anywhere then make sure the liquid doesn't smell like antifreeze. If it does then you've busted the heater coil. Do not drive the car if this is the case. Your coolant will all leak into the car and it will overheat. Replacing a heater coil tend to be a huge pain in the **** and if you can pay someone else to do it by all means do. The heater coil can be bypassed by connecting the water inlet hose to the outlet hose where they go into the firewall. This is a crutch but your car will run fine until you can get the heater coil replaced. A mechanic will do the bypass for you pretty cheaply. It only takes 5 minutes.

Side by side, freezer very cold, frige warm


Any ice buildup is due to one of 2 problems. Either the defrost circuit is not working properlyor the drain hole where the defrosted water drains down to the underneath pan is clogged. I once found a spider's nest in the drain of a refrig that was in a seasonal house after the winter shutdown.

Very common is a defective (open) defrost thermostat, or a bad defrost timer. But for a unit only 5 yrs old I'd start with the drain hole. BE SURE YOU GET ALL THE ICE OUT. Use hot water, hairdryer etc, so water flows freely to drain pan

2002 Toyota RAV4 passenger side floor Water


Hi, we also have a 2002 Toyota Rav4 and developed a leak in the front driver's side of the car. After much research, we discovered that the drain wells from our sun/moon roof were clogged. If you have one of these, I suggest that you open the sun roof and look carefully. You will notice some tiny little holes in front and in the rear of the sun/moon roof tracks. Over time, these become clogged with dust and debris. You need to find a long, sturdy piece of thin wire and run it down the holes. To test if you have properly unclogged these, take a small amount of water and pour it down the holes. You should see water coming out of the drain wells under the car around the rear of the front tires. Hope this helps.
