    What is the problem with 2"? Everything I have read says that oversize pipe is better. Some places have even said that oversized pipe can eliminate the need for a vent. Since there was no...

    when you say "before the p-trap" do you mean between the p-trap and the wall?

    I think that is what I have. I just put the AAV off to the far right because I wanted to get it as high as possible...

    HJ, how would you hook it up? This was my mock up and I was looking for advice because I didn't like how complicated it came out.

    I could have simplified down to one Y and have both sinks share...

    AAVs are allowed--it is a little tough to put a vent line in after the sheetrock and cabinets are installed.
  9. Kitchen Sink -- disposal hookup, drain miscalculation

    When I roughed in my kitchen, I placed my 2" drain stub out where I thought would be close to the edge of the cabinet making it easy to install my p-trap and disposal.

    I have a keller and ferguson account and even with my discount the prices are significantly higher than the big box stores. For example I picked up a 1.5" abs y for $1.86 at HD where my ferguson...

  12. kohler k-438-k versus k-300-k -- diverter?

    I made a mistake and bought and installed a k-438-k tub valve instead of a k-300-k. the k-438-k works fine, it just costs a lot more and has a diverter that I am not using.

    My question is...

    Is there some trick to getting the tub out that I don't know about? If there is maybe I can pursue the new tub option again, not sure the tile guy is going to like me very much.

    We considered a new tub, but there is no way to get it out. It is lodged in with the drywall. We have about four million other things going on in the house and we just need to finish so we can move...

    Yes the instructions are clear, almost a little too clear--I laughed the first time I saw them. Only problem is that they don't talk about any of the edge cases. Like how much you can actually shim...

  18. Waste and Overflow -- cable drive or push pull

    I am getting close to setting a 72"x32" soaker tub and I need to put on the waste and overflow for it. I like the idea of the kind that you can twist that raises and lowers the stopper, but I am...

    There were no instructions in the box. The link I provided above is the link from the Mackinzie tub on the American Standard website. The tub is pretty much identical to the one in the instructions...
