  1. Grohe volume control... plastic linkage tube

    Wonder if many of you out there have had problems with this setup. Last year built a house with two showers, both have Talia level handles and 29 273 rough-in valves. There are a couple of plastic...

    The plumber is dealing with Kohler on it, and he seems to feel a new tub is the right call.

    How good would a patch or repair on a tub like this be? And, what are the chances that where there's one...

    A tiny bit of rust in a new CI tub

    Tub is a Kohler Maestro cast iron drop-in, white. It sat outside my plumber's shop for a month or so in its crate, then we moved it to the job where it was inside, uncrated, and in perfect...
  4. Kohler K839 "Maestro" tub--opinions?

    A customer of mine has tentatively selected this tub. It's a cast iron tub and goes for about $850, which seems fairly low to me, although I am a GC and don't deal directly with a lot of fixture...

    Thanks Leo. I am going to get new carts... but the faucet itself was new 2 months ago. Sometimes "laying on the hands" works for no apparent reason.

    The plumber should be able to find the leak all by himself. He should disconnect the meter, disconnect all of the appliances, cap the stubouts, and attach a gauge to the system somewhere so that he...
  7. Kohler lav cartridges... slow leaks?

    We recently did a bath remodel and the lav faucet seems to have a very slow drip (so slow it's almost not happening, but the drain stopper is wet, and there is usually a drip hanging from the...

    Precast shower pans

    I have a client that is interested in a precast shower pan. She saw something on the east coast while traveling there but was not able to name it. I have used Florestone terrazzo shower pans a few...

    Pump runs but there's no demand

    We have a 150' well with a submersible pump. Occasionally the pump runs when there's no water running anywhere on the system. After much head-scratching I've come to the conclusion that there must be...

    Now that my curiousity's up, I got down my copy of the 2003 IRC and see that P2803.6.1 states that:

    "....The discharge from the relief valve shall be piped full-size separately to the floor, to...

    I'm guessing you have the water heater in the basement, and that the PRV terminates at or near a floor drain? I doubt it has/had anything to do with your drain being slow... especially if the vent...

    These would generally be used where the pipe is vertical and against a stud. I have the correct hangers for running underfloor.
  13. Connecting sewer ejector to gravity lines

    I have a shop building about 40 feet from the house. When I poured the concrete I installed a Liberty sewer ejector that will handle the drain from the one bathroom. There is 2" ABS piping buried...

    Metal straps on ABS pipe?

    I bought a couple of boxes of 2" and 3" C-shaped pipe straps from Keller. When I opened them they turned out to be galv steel. I'm going to be running ABS drains and am not sure that metal straps are...

    Sediment in water

    Before I say anything else, let me say that I know I need to get the water tested and will do so. It's geographically inconvenient and therefore has not happened yet.

    Anyway, we are on a well that...
