    I've often wondered why the closet flange should be on top of finished floor. If the toilet flange is level with the base edges, and the closet flange is higher than floor, won't all the weight of...

    Back to the OP's question. What causes this slow leak? If the wax seal is broke, doesn't only leak when you flush? Last year, I had a toilet that was also leaking. Didn't flush it for 1 month to...

    I'm dying to know what problems the plastic funnels cause. What are they for anyway? I always thought it was just a guide for the wax to compress against.

    Thanks for the insightful answer. I was looking a Grohe valves today and they all come threaded. If i use teflon tape, then solder on an L, does the heat destroy the teflon tape? I'm trying to...

    Maybe you can answer this? I'm trying to find out why thermostatic valves seems to be better at higher flow. Most PB valves are 4-8 gpm, while thermostatic are 9-18 gpm. And can you provide...

  11. Can someone suggest a good shower valve and explain pressure balance vs thermostatic

    I finally had it with the Price Pfister 08 tract home cheapo valve. So I tore the drywall down behind the shower and now have full open access to valve. Wide open with no shower head it passes...

    What model valve do you use? The PP 08 seem to be restriced on both sides.
    thanks

    I attached a gauge to where the shower normally goes and got 65lbs. I took the cartridge out and turned on the water supply and it was a massive stream of water that came out. So I have no doubt...
  14. Would you be able to suggest any models that are...

    Would you be able to suggest any models that are not restricted before the shower head? The Price pfister 08 valve is not unrestricted to tub. Takes for ever to fill tub. Kinda useless.
  15. What's the bottom line on flow restriction for shower/bath tub

    In California and maybe all of U.S, is there a specific law regarding flow restriction on shower systems.
    In the case of shower only, does the flow restriction happen at the valve or at shower head...

    Thanks jadnashua for the explanation.

    and hj.
    Using both ports with a tee? Now that's one great idea. Genius. OK,
    I'll be getting back on how that works out. But it won't be for awhile. ...

    On the PP 0X8 valve, doesn't the water go through the pressure balance cartridge regardless if it's diverted to the shower or tub?
    I notice there's only one outlet hole inside the valve.

    I'm...

    Forgot to ask. So I would connect the bottom port to the shower "up" pipe. Then cap off the top port now being used?

    Thanks. I may give that a try. I use this shower stall to also fill up a tub for washing an infant. I have a diverter valve with a hose attached to fill up the tub. You can imagine how long it...

    I've been researching this and it appears that all new showers and for the past years now do limit flow by law/code. i though it was the shower head that limited it to 2.5g but it appears the valve...
  21. So does the pressure balance cartridge also...

    So does the pressure balance cartridge also restrict flow to 2.5g? There's something in this cartridge significantly reducing flow. Since I have an extra one, is there a way to bore it out to test...
  22. "higher pressure side will be reduced to the...

    "higher pressure side will be reduced to the level of the other one" is this simply because the user of shower would adjust the water temp manually and would turn towards the side with less pressure...

    I just took the cartridge out and had the wife turn on the water supply for 5 seconds while I watched the flow. It's definitely not a problem up to the valve. In 5 seconds, it flooded the shower...
