    How 3" Indirect Shower

  2. No Difference

    I don't think there is a significant difference between the water heater manufacturers. And if there is with the new FVIR heaters we do not know it yet. This has not always been the case. Twenty...

    I believe

    I do believe the outside vent will work and not cost much money but DebthePipeWench has more experience than I on septics and I will defer to her opinion if it differs.
  4. No Fumes

    Don't fill your house with fumes. If you have fumes you have gas and you should lite it. Only turn on one burner. I don't understand what power you are shutting off. Are you shutting off the...
  5. Bleed Air

    I was unaware of the resetable units. If that is not your case I think you just have not allow enough patience to bleed the air out. Our regulators do not need to be adjusted from the gas being shut...

    I think you'll be better off with last years heater because the new ones have a different system that may have problems that are not worked out yet.

    Don't Spend $$

    Don't spend money on a house trap. I did not mean it as a recommendation but as an approach to understanding the problem. It is most likely that you need real vents to the atmosphere instead of...

    Home to Drain

    In my area, mobile home sewer odors are most often from the connection from the mobile home to where it is tied into the sewer. Often they just use a flex line stuck into the pipe. It is not an air...
  10. Limiting

    I would say temperature limiting instead of controlling. It means we will need an additional valve to limit the temperature. You are correct that changing the water heater setting does change the...

  13. Knowing Codes

    We don't know our codes very well. They didn't use to change so much. The FVIR's are not really a code thing anyway. It's a new appliance thing. It's an agreement between the Consumer Product Safety...

    Better Wait

    These Grohe and hansgrohe rough ins are causing problems. Tile showers are having to be torn out and the valves reset. You should be able to do the rough in separate from the finish but I and others...

    Water's Just Dirty

    The water probably isn't bad it's just dirty. We're getting a lot of posts about black specks lately. Try to isolate it. Is it only the tub valve? and is it both the cold water and the hot. If it's...

    Trap Districts

    I do have trap districts in Wichita. This is city main and not septic which is the subject on the originating post. Traps are installed here on the older mains that get filled to capacity. Our sewer...
  19. hj's Says

    Yes what hj is saying. I didn't take time to understand him although his words are clear.
  20. Sometimes Good

    You can get a good reglazing job that will last. But there are still companies that try to do it too fast and with a lesser quality of chemicals.

    Good Pics

    The water from the vent pipe wouldn't concern me. I usually get some and presume it's from condensation but it could be from the roof. I'm still inclined to think the cross plug is an access for a...

    Yes 1 1/4"

    Deb I think they do make 1 1/4" DWV/PVC. Most sump pumps have 1 1/4" outlets and I have pipe and fittings in 1 1/4".
