Hi, /diy/. First time poster here. I have two dogs. You can probably already see where this is going... We have carpeted flooring in our apartment and it's saturated with dog pee. As soon as you walk into the door, you get punched in the throat by the smell. I have tried everything google recommends, including vinegar, water and baking soda but none seems to work. Any tips or tricks to get this shit out short of replacing the carpet?
Pic related, one of the culprits.
stacking storage bins

I need to store various tools and materials and such in a compact fashion in my apartment. I'm currently using six 16-gallon containers stacked in an alcove in the corner of my room: four Sterilite hinged, latching chests from Wal-Mart (http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sterilite-16-Gallon-64-Quart-Hinged-Lid-Storage-Box-Black-Set-of-4/24673334) and two random containers that I already had (similar aesthetic to these 18-gallon containers: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sterilite-18-Gallon-72-Quart-Tote-Box-Set-of-8/10401037).
Since the stack of these things is too damn high (ballpark 7', I don't feel like getting out a tape), the integrity of the chest on the bottom is being compromised. I still have a month and a half to return them to Wal-Mart, and since I paid with a gift card, I'm probably going to get my change in gift card form (maybe they don't have this policy). Do you /diy/nosaurs have any recommendations for Wal-Mart storage solutions for dense /diy/ stuff?
tl;dr: Which storage containers from Wal-Mart stack the best?

Hi all. How's your weekend?
A few days ago I managed to get 4 leaks out of a T-adapter!
>"simple do-it-yourself hook up"
Yeah, I'm starting to hate this phrase.
Pic related. After tightening the connections, I turned the water on (manifold system; left the valve partially closed) and opened the tap back up. Inspected the leaks and poked around for a few seconds, then shut it all off again. Photo was taken shortly thereafter.
None of the leaks were too bad. No spraying or gushing at least. D was the worst, and B was also dribbling pretty steadily. Only a few drops from C, but it was the slow drip from A that's got me concerned.
About ten minutes later I went to double-check all that before making the thread.
