  1. If it's a bad idea to drain into the utility sink...

    If it's a bad idea to drain into the utility sink then I won't do it. That's why I ask these questions. I'm curious, though: wouldn't the dishwasher have a valve? Does it really rely on the drain...

    That's interesting. The utility sink is pretty gross the way things are now. I have the impression from my wife that stuff draining from the kitchen actually backs up out into the utility sink a...
  3. Fixing dishwasher drain ("sweating" drain hose)

    My dishwasher drain has a translucent ribbed hose in the basement that connects to a black hose that goes up into the kitchen to the disposal. The black hose was in the house when I bought it and...

    Thanks for the advice.

    I would say there's a second thing that matters beyond "no leaks", which is that water actually drains. Or to be more succinct: no clogs. And of course I'd like it to...
  5. Bathroom sink trap: PVC or Polypropylene

    I'm removing some badly constricted steel pipes that drain my bathroom sink and tub and replacing with PVC. The existing trap under the bathroom sink is a heavy weight 1.5" sched 40 PVC and screws...

    I'm not sure I understand your problem. I do not think that the hoses underneath matter, because I don't think they move when you turn the faucet. (The long hose might move a teeny bit, but not...

    I didn't let the spring get tangled up. It seemed fairly well behaved, actually. I did step on it once, though. And the hookup under the sink for the hose is really nice---I didn't get any water...

    Here's my final report in case anybody is looking for a solution to the same problem:

    I found that in order to get the hose out I had to pry the water supply lines to the side (reaching in from...

    We'd never noticed any obvious siphoning problems, but I installed an air admittance valve when I redid the sink. (Connecting a proper P-trap would have entailed ripping out the kitchen cabinets.)...

    I took apart the faucet last night. It turns out the screw is hidden under a plastic ring that snaps down. Anyway, I found that the pull out hose prevented me from getting the arm off. But when I...

    Thanks. Looks like there's supposed to be a screw underneath the front of the handle. I vaguely recall that there is a spring (as shown in the diagram), rather than a weight to retract the pull out...

    I would say I'm adept mechanically, but I've never taken a faucet apart like this, and I've noticed that they go to some pains to hide the fasteners that hold it together. So first step, remove the...

    If I take a close look at the faucet will it be obvious how to go about this disassembly? (This is a style with a pull out hose, if it matters.) Note also that the faucet was installed two years...

    kitche faucet arm hard to turn

    My wife complained that the arm of the Grohe kitchen faucet is hard to turn between the sinks. And indeed it seems harder to turn than it should. (Like the force needed to turn it causes the whole...

    We only hand wash the sharp knives, things with wood on them, and the stuff that doesn't fit in the dishwasher. But often both sinks will up with dirty dishes when the dishwasher is full. We have...

    I took a close look at the assembly over the weekend and noticed that there was indeed an adjustment for the height of the drain plug. I lowered it and the problem is solved.

    If I press the drain plug down it seals. Could it still be misaligned?

    Where would I look for adjustments to the operating rod? (I didn't realize there was anything to adjust.)

    Let me note that we have nobody with long hair in the house. The drain seems to drain properly and speedily at the moment (though we have had some mysterious periods of slow draining). It's...

    tub drain won't stay down

    We have a Kohler tub installed with a Kohler drain about 3 years ago. The drain is operated by a lever on the side of the tub. And for a while now if you fill up the tub the drain will float open. ...

    The above is kind of vague. I thought the concern was water flowing backwards into the dishwasher, which is supposed to be a clean area. Also I guess it would be really annoying if the dishwasher...
