  1. My yard is fairly big, so I do need to use the sprinkler even with water around. The water is mainly in the front side of the house, not much in the back. And it seems like sporadic, today the ground seems to be dry. But some days it has been REALLY wet without any rain.
  2. My house is in Katy and was built in 2006. Since about a year ago, I have been noticing water ozzing out occasionally from a crack in my driveway. I did not pay much attention to it till now, when suddenly my water bill has quadrupled. I don't know if the drivway water and the water around my house are related in any way. PS: I have a detached garage I have shut off all the faucets in the house and the water meter does not move. So there is no leak there. I also got the water company to come out and check the meter and it is fine. There is no loss on any channel of the sprinkler system, indic
  3. Hello, I am in a situation where I have no clue what my options are. I bought my first house in Mar 2008. At the time and even today, hcad.org shows the square footage of the house at 3545. When I bought the house, I used a broker who was a friend's husband, so I trusted him completely. His appraiser came up with 3477 Sq feet of living area, and based on that, the house was appraised at $350K. (I did not see copy of the appraisal at the time), but asked for a copy a couple of months after closing). I have excellent credit so I decide to re-fi my house with a different broker this time(Much bet
  4. Still trying to find the reason for this. I have never had this issue in the apartment that I used to live in jm1fd. I do not have any idea of electrical systems or how they work or anything. Hence I was saying things as a layman. I do not re-call thermodynamics from college So if the lamp will stay on, why won't the power adapter? Your messgae does make sense now. I have this issue when I run the laptop on it's battery and try to re-charge the battery after an hour or so. It does not charge up. So I have to move to the next plug point in the room and it works Is there any way other than UPS,
  5. Coz I have a brand new power adapter for my laptop. Also if it was the power adapter, then it would not work if plugged into a different plug point.
  6. I work from home and use my laptop constantly. since I have a small infant as well, I often work from my master bedroom. I use my power adapter connector to the plug points in the room. The funny thing is, the plug point stops working after three days. I have to start using the next one. Then the next one stops working after 2-3 days. So I switch back to the first one. This is VERY annoying for me.. esp coz all of a sudden my laptop battery stops charging and I have to remove the power adapter and plug it into a new plug point. Any advise on how to diagnose what the problem is, will be very h
  7. I recently bought a 2 year old home in Katy. Since it is a foreclosure, there are a lot of unknowns with the house. I would like to hear from people who have home warranty as to which company are they using and what has been their experience. I am mainly looking to cover the basic stuff, like A/c Heat plumbing etc. I am replacing all appliances with brand new ones so those will have their manufacturer warranty at least for one year. Thank you all in advance.
  8. Thank you all. The house is a brick exterior. Is there anything special that I need to be aware of? Like you mentioned about the stucco?
  9. I am planning to buy a house in Houston. It is a big house and has a lot of hi-tech stuff. Things like pre-wired for speakers, motion sensor lights, dimmers in each room, elevator etc etc. I am looking for recommendation on a good home inspector who knows electrical cricuits very well. It's a fairly new house (1998). Thank you in advance.
