    Youngstown Sink Removal

    Hi all,

    Does anyone have any past experience removing one of these beasts? Does the countertop detach from the metal base cabinets? That's really my biggest concern. If so, how? I have a guy who...

    Thanks for the response, Terry.

    As a hypothetical, what if I cut back existing brass pipe with a sawsall and there was no threaded end left? Could you use compression on that?

    Compression fittings and brass pipe

    Hi, I was going to install shutoff valves on existing 1/2" brass cold and hot water lines. Can I use valves with 1/2" compression inlets? Do they play nice with brass pipe? Or should I use 1/2" sweat...

    Just as an update, I was able to successfully bleed the air out of my system by using that thumb screw on the PRV. It was a cinch after I figured that part out. The pressure relief valve didn't end...

    The higher the temperature difference between the supply and return air streams, the greater the heat loss. If it's only a few feet you could probably live with it but it's a total hack job and I...

    Well that's an interesting question. TECHNICALLY this would be the same as running any branch line through a return air plenum above, say, the ceiling tiles of an office space. The code does require...

    Believe me, if I had the money I would have 2 dual fuel heat pump/nat. gas furnace forced air systems - one for each floor. For now I'm stuck with what is there. I don't even have insulation in my...

    I'm sorry, I meant to say John, not Tombstone in my reply. Also, I'll instruct the person engaging the fast fill thumb screw to go easy and place a bucket under the pressure relief to catch any...

    Other than the pressure gauge at the boiler I do not know the internal pressure of the closed loop system. All I can tell you that the boiler pressure was 15lbs at 130F before I started then dropped...
