    I'm not a plumber so I am not going to comment on the code aspects to this setup. It does look to be a rather unconventional setup. Is the shutoff between the meter and the filter easily...

    Yes.

    If you change just the flapper, it will use more than 1.6 GPF. Not only will it use more water when you flush, but too much water will be used for the bowl refill. If you change the fill...

    I don't think this is typical for these units. I had a Badger 1 that did not leak until it was something like 14 years old. I replaced it with the ISE Evolution Compact. I like the Evolution...

    I started a thread on this a day or two earlier. Might as well delete that thread since this one has the pictures and video.

    I figured that they would try to resolve the safety problem while...

    There should be some sort of access panel at the back of the freezer. Remove it and check the evaporator coil. I bet it will have built up frost and ice. If that is the case, defrost it manually...

    Jim, I'm in the same boat as you were. For my top floor bathrooms, the ducts for the bath fans were run to the soffit. I need to redo those ducts and get them vented to the outside and was debating...

    What do you folks up north use as far as terminating the duct? Just wall caps or do you also use roof caps? I would expect the vertical rise needed for a roof cap would allow moisture build up and...

    It does not change anything. The good news is that it does not make things worse.
    For your short duct run and assuming no elbows, the wall cap will be the largest restriction in the system by far. ...

    You would really be much better off using a 6" wall cap. Using the 4" wall cap will definitely result in a reduced air flow and more noise than using a 6" wall cap. The short 8" section of 4" round...

    Since you indicate that it cycles as often as it does in a drought, it sound like you are dealing with a fair amount of ground water. I think the water flowing to your sump has more to do with...

    Good call, but I my basement windows are 12" high and above grade, so no window wells.



    The earth around the drain tiles is mostly red clay and not porous. It is certainly possible that all of...

    No, not the basement. That would be rather difficult. The discharge from the bath fan is running to the sump pit. Basically it is set up in a manner you would need to do for a smoke test. I'm...
