    Repeatedly clogging bathroom sink

    Ever since we've been in this house (~11 years), the master bath sink slowly clogs every 4 months or so. The culprit is a slow build-up of this nasty slime, until the sink barely drains. Then I...

    While building my house, I'm sure the only thing the carpenters were concerned with was "How long until beer-thirty?" Poke a hole in any wall/floor, and it is all but guaranteed you'll find a...

    What are you saying?

    Are you trying to tell me everything I could possibly need/want can't be found at HD? You know, I get tunnel vision sometimes with regard to the box stores. As if there is no other place to...

    Thicker wax rings without horns

    I've been noticing that the general opinion on this board is the wax rings with horns should be avoided. I have recently tiled a bathroom and the flange with 1/2" Oatey extender is about 1/16" above...

    OK, so the clear instead on bisque to match the toilet. I wouldn't have considered clear I don't believe. Maybe a dumb follow-up, but would I use the Tub & Tile Kitchen & Bath Ultra Sealant product...
