What are the chances that I can assemble this myself? WB video said you just need an impact drill and a screwdriver. I hired a local moving company to get the tank from the garage to the living room. They will be here first thing Friday morning, so I need it done by then
I bet you could get it done. If you need help, see if one of the more handy types on this thread can facetime with you and walk you through it you that way. Just so you know, I am NOT one of the more handy types LOL

Ugh I'd rather the vertigo over the ringing. I'm not good at drowing out the noise, I am good at figuring out unique ways to combat dizziness so I can still mostly function.



We're doing the same thing tomorrow, updating the outlet by the tank to a gfci in the swap. Better safe than sorry, we've been lucky.
I didn’t change the outlet to a gfci..the electrician advised against it. He said I’m better off leaving the outlet as is and making sure all cords have a drip loop. They have to come back next week, so I have time to think about it

We didn't either, got this gfci power strip instead. When all was said and done, I wasn't going to be able to access the gfci with the way the stand was set up anyway.

Ugh me too, pollen in FL is brutal after that rain over the weekend. No tinnitus, but vertigo instead :rolleyes:. Hope you feel better soon.
I thought pollen in FL was bad until I moved to GA. You can literally see it! If your car is outside.. it will have a nice yellow tint to it.

be careful with an impact drill. Those go from just screwing this in sir to give it all we got!!! very quickly.

It rains, my car is clean, next day my car is yellow again.
