3 Tapping Glueless Laminate Floor Installation, a Must-See


Did you know that glueless laminate floor planks have more than one tongue and groove? How does this affect the installation? If you are familiar with hardwood floor installation, and you thought laminate floor installation is easier, you could be in for a big surprise unless you take the time to study the floor locking mechanism before you start. Therefore, using the most common kind of glueless-click laminate flooring, we illustrate the tongue and groove locking mechanism and an easy-to-remember 3 tapping installation procedure. To complete the process, we will discuss how to modify this 3 tapping method under a few special conditions or configurations. If you have flooring with a different kind of locking mechanism, based on the process described here, you can easily modify for your own 3 tapping method.

12 DIY Tools For Laminate Flooring Installation


Many times we buy a lot of tools when we start an DIY project. Some of the tools can be used elsewhere, but some of the tools are so specialized they will never be used again in other projects. If you are able to share tools among different projects, of course it will be more economical in the long term and you will have a less crowded tool shed. For those tools only limited to the laminate flooring installation, we have tested them and listed their prices. We also discuss whether you may use alternative tools or make the tools yourself.

Anyway, whether you already have a lot of tools from other projects, or have only limited tools this video would should suit your needs. We first discuss tools specialized for laminate flooring installation. And then we will list type of tools that are needed, i.e. the function of the tools that are needed so that you may match your existing tools inventory with the goal of the installation. If you don’t have many tools and you are not installing large areas, we will show you how to make some of the specialized tools. Note that a few tools at the beginning of the list are essential for this type of installation, while other tools later in the list may or may not be used depending on your requirement/configuration. This list focuses on the installation function; safety related items such as goggles, face mask and knee pads are not listed.

4 Step Minimal Waste Time Saving Laminate/Engineered Wood Installation


How can you have almost zero waste when you install laminate or engineered wood flooring? The laminate flooring salespeople recommend allowing for at least 5% waste. Still, when I installed the flooring from left to right, often I found the right plank was too short and I had to undo the whole row and start all over again. Thus even figuring I will waste 5% of materials (thus money), I can not guarantee I will not also waste time.

In this video, I will show you a very easy simple 4-step process that will not only allow you to save the material (the money) but also the time. In fact, the layout of the whole room can be predicted before the actual installation.

Simplest Early Toilet Leak Detection

Simplest Early Toilet Leak Detection

Most people don’t realize their toilet leaks water to the drain because it does not leak onto the bathroom floor where it can be noticed. However it does waste water. Mostly likely by the time you realize your toilet leaks, it has already leaked for months at a low frequency when you are not at home or not paying attention. How do you know which toilet leaks, and how can you detect such leaks early on and identify which part of the toilet is responsible for the leak? Today, I am sharing with you the simplest and easiest tests to identify the leak early on. I will show you how to fix the leaks as well.

5 Different Ways To Make Your Toilet Use Less Water


In addition to flushing one tank of water, my experiment showed another 3 liters of water flowed to the overflow tube. I was very surprised to discover this. I will provide a zero cost fix to this problem. I will provide 5 different ways to save on water used in toilet flushing. These techniques are based on the amount of water the toilet tank releases, assuming the toilet bowl is efficient. Watch this video to see the efficient toilet siphon effect: https://youtu.be/_EP7LZdnMXo Note that if your toilet bowl is not efficient, reducing the water flushed may not clear the solid waste well, you may have to flush twice. So one of the best techniques is to have a dual flush system which uses more water for the solid waste than the liquid waste. See the explanation and installation of the dual flush system: https://youtu.be/1RDGznJm-U8

You won’t need to waste water repeating my experiments, instead watch this video, share to as many people as you can, favorite it, like it, so that we save water.

Big Mystery of the Adjustable Toilet Flapper Solved

Big Mystery of the Adjustable Toilet Flapper Solved


This big mystery puzzled me for weeks. I bought an adjustable flapper, but can’t figure out why it should work. It looks symmetrical when adjusted from min to max. I asked the following people about it: Home Depot sale people, plumbers and a lot of my DIY type friends, none of them could answer with a reasonable theory (https://youtu.be/DmgkmE8Zn8g). I finally figured it out through many experiments. I am sharing this with you since I have wasted a lot tanks of water in my experiments.

Once we have figured out how the adjustable flapper works, we can also convert our non-adjustable flapper into an adjustable one, enabling you to experiment with the idea first without multiple trips to Home Depot. And of course it saves your money!!

Easy 5 Seconds Toilet Flush Test and Solving the Slow Flush Mystery

Did you know that there are 3 different kinds of openings in your toilet? For a long time, I was trying to figure out the mystery of slow flush in my toilet, and finally I found the explanation and solution. I have discovered this easy 5-second test, which will save your time and money by diagnosing the problem. This is my major contribution to the subject, let’s call it Dr. David Zhang’s 5-second test. I know this 5-second test will not get me a Nobel Prize, but we hope just as many people will benefit because Dr. Zhang’s test is very simple, easy and costs you absolutely nothing.

I will also present two different ways to fix your slow toilet flushing problem.

This video is trying to solve the problem of “slow flushing”. If your problem is “no flushing”, i.e. completely clogged/blocked main drain, please view my previous video:
