    Saddle Valve Question

    I recently replaced all of my supply lines, but I still need to connect my whole-house humidifier to the water line. It looks like a 1/4" line (like my refrigerator water line). Previously, it was...

    curb key

    Just for giggles, I looked for curb keys at Lowes in St. Louis. They were stacked in a barrel like lollipops. Since this is probably not the place where plumbers pick up their supplies (correct me if...

    union vs nipple

    What makes a dielectric nipple better than a dielectric union? Is one more likely to leak than the other?

    distance

    The distance from the 90 to the wall is about 5 or 6 inches. The wall is stone and the home is about 75 years old.

    alignment

    OK, a few stupid questions:
    1. How do I ensure that my brass elbow points straight up when I twist it into place.
    2. I assume that the brass elbow is 1" on both ends, and that the male adapter...

    location of new shut-off

    This is a follow-up question to my last post about replacing my main shut-off valve.
    I've attached a few photos of my current setup. A few weeks ago I put in a new ball valve above my old gate...

    You were all correct!
    I found the shut off. It was burried out by the street. I just went out with a long screwdriver and started poking around. Five minutes later I heard a thunk....gold!...well,...

    curb cock

    I'll take another look to see if there is more than one pipe.
    Have you ever had a problem when closing the curb cock? The water has probably not been shut off for at least 15 years.

    1/2 hour and still nothing dissolving. The chips are very brittle.

    If, as I suspect, this is adding up to a bad tank, can someone with experience recommend a reputable brand? I've never been...

    My wife (who is more of an authority on showers) informed me that she runs out of hot water every time she takes a shower (even before I changed the supply lines).

    I've soaked the chips for 5...

    Oddly enough, yes, the hot water does not last as long as it used to. However, this is a very recent problem....only after the supply lines were changed last week.

    hot water expands

    I'm no expert, that's for sure, but from the perspective of physics, there is a simple reason why the expansion tank must be on the cold water supply line side of the tank instead of the hot side. As...

    That makes sense. I'll check the flex lines first and go from there. I'm not sure of the make of the faucet...I know its very old. I'll check when I get home. Thanks again.
