    I had thought of a drop-ear el but at the time, I didn't think it was necessary. What I've done is bored out a hole in a 2 x 8 and cut that in half horizontally so the stub out would be sandwiched in...
  2. HJ and cwhyu2, you're right. I had a closer look...

    HJ and cwhyu2, you're right. I had a closer look at the threads because I had done a test to see how far they'll screw in to a "test" female adapter and I can now see some gold color beneath the...
  3. Gotcha! Thank you!

    Gotcha! Thank you!
  4. Thanks, jadnashua! I thought I read somewhere...

    Thanks, jadnashua! I thought I read somewhere that when you're dealing with stainless on another metal, that the pipe dope had to be anti-galling. Maybe this is true of all pipe-dope? Any brand you...
  5. What type of sealing compound to use for this situation

    Hi all! Still working on the bathroom reno. I have copper stub-outs with sweat-on brass 1/2 in female threaded adapters at the end. I have stainless steel 1/2 in male threaded external shower valve...
  6. Thank you, hj.

    Thank you, hj.

    OK, so I won't be using the glued drain because I like to be able to disassemble things if I need to (I prefer using screws rather than nails if I can, floating floors rather than glue-down, etc.)

  8. LMAO! OK, I guess I asked for that, ballvalve....

    LMAO!

    OK, I guess I asked for that, ballvalve. Any thought on the real issue at hand?
  9. How far down should bush be inserted into shower drain

    Hi everyone,

    I'm ready to install my shower drain kit and I have to either bush down from 2" to 1 1/2" inside the drain or use a 1 1/2" gasket rather than the 2" that comes with the kit. Our code...
  10. Thanks for the faucet lesson, guys. I didn't know...

    Thanks for the faucet lesson, guys. I didn't know brass had lead in it and I didn't know I'd need a beading tool if I were to need to make that kind of connection. About the new brass -- I don't mind...
  11. Thanks Jimbo, I'll have a look at the link...

    Thanks Jimbo,

    I'll have a look at the link you've provided. So, it's because of lead laws. I would have never guessed. I'm not even sure where lead would be involved. I have 3/8 going out the top...
  12. Recommendations on lav faucets that don't use braided supply lines?

    Hey everyone,

    I had purchased a Grohe faucet for the lav that will be going in my new bathroom. The basin is a wall-mounted small design (19 wide x 15 deep) and will have the plumbing exposed....
  13. Doing the sink rough-in right

    OK, since I like to be 2 steps ahead on most things, I have some questions:

    This is the sink I will be installing (wall-hung)

    13586

    This is the plumbing configuration I'm doing in case I...
  14. Oh, cripes. That must have sucked. I don't think...

    Oh, cripes. That must have sucked. I don't think the inspector here will make me do a test anyway. I'm also going to be redoing the whole section of the stack I took out as well as the sink drain arm...
  15. Okey-doke. Makes sense.

    Okey-doke. Makes sense.
  16. Any problem with using a layer of poly (plastic)...

    Any problem with using a layer of poly (plastic) in between the floor and the mortar and the shower base and the mortar (just in case you need to take it out in the future or if you messed up)?
  17. Thanks Tom. I wasn't intentionally trying to...

    Thanks Tom. I wasn't intentionally trying to create slope there, but because of the way the stack is situated (it was installed crooked from the bathroom floor up through the roof), in the wall, I...
  18. All very interesting information, guys. Good...

    All very interesting information, guys. Good segue for my next rudimentary question:

    If the ABS glue actually welds two of the same type of pipes together, am I to assume that if an ABS to ABS...

    Hmmm. Maybe there's a business opportunity in that statement?
  20. AHA!! Just got off the phone with NIBCO...

    AHA!!

    Just got off the phone with NIBCO Canada. Apparently, except for British Columbia, all other provinces, when using a 1 1/2 fitting in DWV to code, needs to be a short radius. That's why the...
  21. Nukeman, that's such a nice offer. I'm going to...

    Nukeman, that's such a nice offer. I'm going to call the remaining two plumbing supply shops here and if I don't have any luck, I'll take you up on it.

    JM, the PVC vs ABS issue, I think, would...
  22. Thanks, JM. I think I'll make a couple of phone...

    Thanks, JM. I think I'll make a couple of phone calls tomorrow morning -- to the city plumbing inspector and see what he says. My access to the plumbing code that I paid for isn't working and they're...
  23. DWV fittings help

    So it was pointed out that I used a vent 90 on my lav drain rough-in. Apparently a real DWV ell doesn't exist around here and everyone uses what I have used. I can order the part from the US but is...
  24. I guess I was thinking about the sections in the...

    I guess I was thinking about the sections in the top and bottom plates that were cut out to accommodate the vent stack. I was going to bridge those gaps, too. I think I might still be able to do the...
  25. Thanks for clarifying, Tom!

    Thanks for clarifying, Tom!
