Hello, on occasions I get a sewer smell in my house. It appears to be coming from the guest bath that does not get a lot of use. My thought was that the water in the tub trap would evaporate over...
I'm sure my house has copper pipes... how far out the spout would the pipe extend? Not sure what kind of saw I could use to cut the spout down it's length .. Maybe a good job for my dremel.
I'm replacing it because it's old and corroded and does not divert all the water to the shower head . The problem is I can't get the plastic liner to break free and pull off. I took the screw all the...
