Last Lawn cut of the season

Well today I made the last lawn cut for the season and also put down the usual fall fertilizer application.

With that I also winterized and cleaned the lawnmower for winter storage.

I also moved my snow blower from the shed to the garage in prep for the winter weather

Also moved my snow tires from the shed to the garage in prep for winter installation in the next little while

Well I just got my furnace tuned up for the winter.
They had to replace the flame sensor, pressure switch, and a 1/2" pipe union.
The previous company that serviced my furnace installed it in the wrong place and the switch melted Yikes!!! He found two gas leaks, one on the hot water heater and one on the main gas pipe leading to my furnace.

He also had to adjust the gas pressure as it was low

I am ready to go now for the winter.

WIMPLIFE: Picked up the gauge at homedepot. The water pressure at my house is 55 Psi Within the range but on the low side.


WIMPLIFE: Cool this morning +6 C partly cloudy
I think I am going to pick up a water pressure gauge at home depot to check my home water pressure. They say it should be between 50 to 70 PSI ideally. If you have to high a pressure it could lead to burst pipes in the home. The washer and dryer connector lines are one of the weak spots
