    If I’m reading your post correctly, I would stick with the issue that caused all of your problems…the drain line that was installed incorrectly. If the drain line was installed incorrectly at the...

    I’m probably missing something here on all of the posts here, but here in Phoenix, most of the homes have a gate or ball valve at the house. Then there is a water meter out by the street that has...
  5. Elec heat no good.

    From what she’s told me, these little rental units were built like in the 40’s, and the power supply to the main panels is almost noting. She says that with just one small electric heater on low, and...
  6. Just a thought...

    My buddy bought a dishwasher that I think someone must have done something like that too. My buddy put some De-foamer in, and ran a load. I just called him, and he said that you can get that...
  7. Thanks,

    Thanks HJ,

    This heater will be for a client/friend of mine that has some small hotel type rental houses in Wilcox Az. She found one of those, “Mr. Heater portable propane heaters” on the web, and...

    Question...

    Is your basement a, “finished basement” and is it heated / cooled? My parents had a house back East, and the basement was cold and damp, and not really finished, (drywall, carpeted etc.).

    Just a thought...

    You may have to...

    Maybe?

    When I had my A/C / heat pump installed in my house, my contractor just installed a 6” vent pipe plumbed into the return air duct work from the outside. He said that it would cost me about ¼ ton of...

    I have a client that the water softener discharge line drains into her sewer line that goes into her septic system. I noticed on my dads discharge line on his water softener, (that he just discharges...

    You may try the, “kill him with kindness” approach. Mail him a letter saying something like you want to put the past behind you and just become good neighbors. Tell him that if he has any issues that...

    Freezing pipes.

    In North Phoenix, (around New River) there is still a problem with pipes freezing. Last year wasn’t too bad, but the year before that a lot of BFP’s and well pipes were busting all over the place;...

    Thanks

    Wow….only four zones on an acre. I will suggest to the owner about going to at least a 1” line. I’m just concerned that the galvanized pipe that is in the house is just as rusty as the main line...

    Thanks much!

    I have been doing some research on using PEX pipe. I have read on the pipe itself, and it recommended not be used if the free chlorine is over 4 PPM. I called the city water quality department and I...

    Not a plumber

    I have done proper under slab copper pipe repair by brazing the pipe together with oxygen and Mapp gas….”even though I’m not a plumber”. Thank you for your concern.

    Back to you....

    Thanks Terry…I did go check out the existing water service, and it was a ¾” galvanized line, with a 5/8” water meter. It’s kind of typical out here in the older part of town. One of the draw backs of...
  23. Thanks Jimbo for the reply

    If the hot water tank, (on the other thread, “Imploding water heater?”) imploded, wouldn’t the nipples on the top of tank be pushed outwards, (away from the vent)?
    If it did implode, I can see why...
