I've seen a couple of other posts on flickering lights, and was hoping someone could confirm my thoughts based on those posts or offer another perspective.
Home was built in 2001, I recently purchased... so I do not know if it "always" did this.
#1 - I replaced the wall light fixtures (2) in the living room with new ones because it was blowing bulbs every month or so. The new bulbs are standard type bulbs vs. previous low wattage bulbs... no burnouts since, but, now, when the dryer turns on, it causes the lights in the living room to brighten sharply for a split second. (this affects different circuits)
#2 - We have a water feature outside, and when the pump turns on, it causes several lights (doesn't seem like all of them though) to flicker throughout the house. If we turn the pump off, these lights do not flicker, so it is definitely isolated to the pump. (this affected different circuits)
#3 - When running the pressure washer on the rear deck recently (while stripping to re-stain), the voltage at the living room plugs dropped significantly... I know this because I have an A/V protector that has a voltage readout. Voltage would drop on average between 5-8V... (these MAY be the same circuit so I might expect this to be normal).
In the other threads, it was stated that the Utility connections may be the problem. Do you think that may be the case here... are there other potential problem areas?
