    Hi Jerry -

    Thanks,

    Hi -

    Yeah, I think it's something like that. That's a slip fit though, right? My P-trap is brass.

    Hi Ron -

    The wall's pretty much closed up now, so I don't think I'd be able to get anything to come out clearly. I think the installation is pretty standard though. It's a 4" CI stack that runs...

    I'll just go without it then. Even hand tight is enough to block the flow when the washer is in there. Looking at it, I don't see how it could possibly work with the washer in...

    Hi Guys -

    I just finished installing a hand shower and had had some issues with the vacuum breaker. Every time I tightened the breaker to the supply elbow with the washer included, the washer...

    With the longer nipple, it's not an issue of tightness. It literally protrudes out too far from the wall, leaving the brass exposed. Even when I dry-fit the elbow, it doesn't come anywhere close to...

    No, not that the nut would cut the threads, but that by cutting the pipe without establishing additional threads, not only do I now have less mating surface, but the taper starts as a wider OD. ...

    Hi -

    There may be nipples with straight threads, but these are NPT. From what I've read, sealing threads are NPT, where engineering (structural) threads are straight, for strength. That's why I...

    Hi -

    Will I run into an issue because the threads on the pipe are tapered and the ones on the nut are straight
  13. Issue with hand shower and finished wall depth
