  1. Kitchen sink backup in a condo

The Lead Plumbing Inspector after looking at a video of the inside said the 3" vertical drain pipe bends slightly on it's way to the 2nd floor and and the cast iron is pitted. Building built in 1989 and converted to condos in 2005.

    Any ideas.

  2. Franke Gooseneck Faucet that allows a very thin stream of water

    My kitchen Franke gooseneck faucet is only allowing a thin stream of water to flow. I unscrewed the head and the stream of water was still the same... very constricted. The the coil was removed from under the counter and I can see no way of flushing water through that. Now I have no use of my kitchen faucet. Is my faucet shot or can it be fixed?

  4. Copper vs. Polyethylene pipe?

    We are doing a reroute through our ceiling (no attic) to replace 3/4 copper hot and cold water pipes due to a slab leak on our 6 year old custom home (sigh!). What kind of pipe is best suited -- copper or polyethylene?
    Many thanks for your thoughts.
