I want to know the weather forecast for Cape Town in the Western Cape


Presuming that CapeTown/Western-Cape is for South Africa, (BTW, nice hiking up to Lions-Head & Table-Top), you can use "Widgets" on your Android Smart-Phone (LG, Samsung, etc.). Tap and Hold your finger down on Open-Space/Area of the Home Screen on Phone, then select "Weather" from the available Widgets. You may have to select "Widgets" First, then Weather. You can add multiple towns from any Country/Continent, by tapping Plus-Sign (+) on the Widget, and typing the Town & Country. If you have a Windows-PC (Vista/Win-7/8/10), then you can add "Weather Underground Gadget" to your Windows Sidebar/Gadgets and with the "Wrench/Setting" you can type in the City/State/Country. I believe that the closest Weather-Station for CapeTown that Weather-Underground utilizes, is FBFT - Francistown, Botswana; which is about 39-Miles/63-KMs away from CapeTown; but should be fairly accurate. Be sure to download the newer version of Weather Underground Gadget, as the URL-Link in the "localizedfunction.JS" (Java_Script) has been modified from "http" to "https" (Secure) on Line 26. If you have the older version of Weather-Underground Gadget, then you will likely see an Error Message, stating that unable to Connect to Internet Service. Just close the Gadget, use "Notepad/Notepad++" and add the "s" to "http" on line 26, and then re-open the Weather-Underground Gadget. Good Luck.

Im using a salamander heater to thaw out frozen pipes in a double wide, been running for 3 hrs. I still do not have water! Could the underground pipe be frozen,if so how do I fix this?


just keep heating it, if it is frozen underground heating will be the only way once unfrozen let one tap drip a bit to stop it from freezing again

How do i eliminate moisture from an underground,natural gas galvanized gas line. I have no gas flow to my garage or my 75k garage heater.


Check on the local codes governing gas piping, but it would be my suggestion to consider abandoning the existing line IF you are sure there is a compromise to its integrity allowing water to enter. I would think if water ENTERS...then GAS has to be able to excape. It'd be a lot of condensation that's required to either just block the line or freeze and block the line. If it freezes due to lack of depth, it's going to rupture anyway sooner or later necessitating replacement.

At the above ground location before where it goes subterranean, (after checking the codes), consider installing the appropriate brass fittings to then allow a new underground copper line to be installed by attaching by means of an iron pipe to flare adapter in the appropriate size. Then utilize type L soft roll copper to lay in the new trench to the garage and tie it into the existing line inside the wall. Type L is the thick walled soft tubing and can be used in many locations for gas, whereas Type M soft copper tubing is thin walled tubing for use with water and not gases. Your area may not allow it. That's what building inspectors are for.

Before proceeding, MAKE SURE your line is in fact the problem then double check with a local authority whether or not copper materials are recommended along with brass fittings for the connections. IF the original and suspected problematic gas line is for sure GALVANIZED it is not in any way approved for use with natural gas. It is probably black iron pipe.

What is the best method for retro-fitting a residential water line with a protective shroud, so that a concrete driveway can be poured over it?


Depending how deep it is underground there might not be a solution.
First of all waterline should be below the frost line, about 36" to 42". Anything shallower that that it might be asking for trouble from freezing if you live in a cold climate. If you can open one end of the water line you might try putting a steel pipe (schedule 80) around it then back filling with gravel prior to the concrete install. If you can't open one end of the water pipe cut a piece of culvert pipe in half, place both sides around the pipe, then use tie wire or clamps to keep the halves together then back fill with gravel.

Hot water heater water, went out main line of house that enters house


You did smart thing turning off water and gas.
Play it safe.

Your water heater will NOT explode.
Conduct routine maintenance so water heater lasts longer. If plumber says you need new heater, then post question on fixya and include information showing on tank label on side of tank.
Also include why plumber says to replace.
Get another plumber.

Call city utility company to determine source of noise.

I have williams floor heater model#4505622 which was installed April, 2010. It was working in Nov, but there was heavy rain that month. One day in Dec, 2010, it stopped working. The pilot is off. I called...


Your final question is an excellent one!
YES!-- they SHOULD BE!-- Are they truly, tho?- I doubt it!
and unless the power feed, and the thermostat connections come in from above the floor line, there invariably will be ways for water to get into this box!
So-- Can you shine a light down thru the floor grating, and can you see signs of water having gotten into the equipment?-- Can you remove the grate, and check it out closely?
Let us now what you find-

The cold water in the sink and toilet is brown.


This is usually from three things.1. The outside mains water supply pipes have fractured underground and soil etc is contaminating the water. 2. The existing pipework is steel and not copper which is corroding. 3. You have a tank supplying the outlets and this requires cleaning. You dont state if these are the only outlets doing this .

Refills too slowly.


Hi,
You have dirt in the supply tube or the valve...
Depending on what valve is in the tank you can take the top off and wash the dirt out...
Otherwise you may have to replace the float valve inside your tank...
