OK Marcel Gratton & Roy Lewis are this week’s winners.
You both got 4 of 5 correct. But I also agree with Marcel on #2.
Thank you! :cowboy_hat_face:

2) Existing knob-and-tube wiring should be replaced

c

3) Which of the following requires aesthetically pleasant water?
a) Domestic use
b) Industrial use
c) Irrigation
d) Aquaculture
e) none
b
Industries need aesthetically pleasant water with low turbidity, colour, taste and odour, absence of macro-organisms. The water should be free from organisms harmful to health

~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~ ~~
4) How can I tell if my floor drains are trapped?
Pour water into the opening (at least 2 gallons) and visually inspect by looking down the opening. If there is considerable water standing (so that it fills the pipe), then the drain is trapped. Check it again a couple of hours later to be sure the water hasn’t drained out.

5) Interior basement stairways should have
a) graspable handrail on at least one side
b) adequate headroom
c) adequate lighting
d) risers of equal height
e) a & d
