  1. Reverse osmosis drain

    I have a reverse osmosis that drain excess all the time. I understand the cost of clean water with a ratio of 1 gallon of filtered water to 2 to 3 gallons going to the drain, once the system is full (charger without using any water) does the drain shut off automatically or does it continue to drain all the time?
    I appreciate your comment, because if it continues to drain all the time, I will work on a way to shut it off once the system is charged.

    thank you

  2. Americast Tub installation wobbly

    I am installing an Americast tub and have set the tub on a level stringer, but the back of the tub directly over the stringer is not level. It says the back right is 1/4 inch too high. Is it possible that the tub itself that sets on the stringer is not level?

The tub is flimsy and has movement when you are in it. The contractor

We have occasionally gotten brown water and it usually clears up after a day or so. This time it started out cloudy (white in color) then went to a dark brown. We called our driller and they said you need to just run it out. After 6 hours and ...

  5. Transitioning from PVC outside to PEX inside the house

    My water supply line from the meter is 3/4" PVC, and I would like to plumb the house with PEX. The best idea I have is to transition to CPVC for the run through the wall, so I can use sharkbite fittings for the transition to PEX, and to add a sharkbite ball valve for a shut-off. The added consequence is another transition from PVC to CPVC, which I think I will use brass threaded adapters. It's not really clean or pretty, and uses a lot of different materials, I think it will work, any suggestions? ...
