  • How to Replace a Toilet (Step-by-Step)

    Great instructable, thanks for the tutorial. I bought my current house in late 2012 and ever since then I have been contemplating replacing the toilet as it leaves some things to be desired. My question, and apologies if it has already been asked, is: if the existing toilet is *not* an elongated bowl toilet, can it be replaced with an elongated bowl toilet, or can it only be replaced with a non-elongated bowl toilet? Or is it something that depends on certain dimensional details of the space where the existing toilet resides (if so, could you say what dimensional details I should be looking at)? Thanks!

    Very cool project, and I'm sure a lot of fun. Thanks for listing it here on Instructables.com. Makes me think about trying something like this.I just had two comments, and my apologies if these have been stated once or many times by others already. First, I believe three-wheeler ATV vehicles were outlawed in the U.S. due to safety concerns regarding the single front wheel. Might be something to consider to make it a four-wheeler instead. Second, it really seems like it really should have some secondary form of locomotion when floating in the water, just counting on the wheels spinning in the water to move you forward does not seem like the best manner to move forward. Perhaps if you were able to switch to a propeller to move you through the water and then switch back to the wheels...see more »Very cool project, and I'm sure a lot of fun.

    Powerful burning Laser

    Neat instructable. But no need to solder the leads of the diode together to prevent ESD damage, just wear an ESD wrist strap connected to ground when handling, and when transporting carry it in a metallic foil bag.

    Cool design and build!

    Children in particular would not have any issue with the seat width.

    Very neat project, and nicely implemented. I honestly think you could sell something like this (assuming someone else hasn't already patented it :-).

  • Automated Solar Hot Water Power Shower using Black Plastic Pipes

    Very interesting and useful instructable! One question though. From the pictures I was not sure where the water comes in at and where it goes out. I was guessing the water comes in on the top inlet of the leftmost and possibly rightmost vertical pipes and then comes out the bottom of the central vertical downspout. However, if that is the case, how do you ensure the water doesn't just go down through the left/right vertical pipe to the bottom and then horizontally through the bottom horizontal pipe only to the central downspout (in other words how do you make sure the water fills all of the horizontal pipes and not just the bottom-most horizontal pipe)? I guess if the water is instead coming in the bottom inlet of the central vertical pipe and being pushed up by the pump then it sh...see more »Very interesting and useful instructable!

I guess if the water is instead coming in the bottom inlet of the central vertical pipe and being pushed up by the pump then it should fill all of the pipes before coming out the top of the left and/or right vertical pipes, just due to gravity. Just trying to understand that point. But otherwise great instructable.
