    Yeah, Google or look in the yellow pages for irriigation supply. They have a variety of solutions. You can glue a manifold together or they have ones that go together like compression fittings....

    Sprinkler Questions

    A customer asked me if I could repair his 10 year old sprinkler system that had sprung a leak. He thought I could just cut out the split female connector, buy some PVC couplings and done. The...

    I suggest you rent a tile saw. You can then cut small slivers off the end of a full tile matching the angle of the intersecting wall. Fill the gap until there is a small enough space where 100%...

    You probably have too much slack in the chain. Adjust the chain so that you have it is as tight as possible but not so tight as to unseat the rubber thingy. (If that's possible on a new Toto)

    I expect you need a steadier hand than I have to use a brush at the ceiling line. I used only a brush when I first started painting so I know it can be done. The tool just seems so much quicker for...

    I've never been able to paint a satisfactory line at the ceiling/wall intersection with a brush. I use an old, very specific tool called a "Shur-line". It has wheels on top and a removable pad. They...

    The best way to remove tiles is to take out the wall down to the studs then put up new drywall. Otherwise, you'd chisel off the tiles and be left with a wall full of hardened thinset (or worse, mud...

    If they glued that on with 100% silicone you will have a bugger of a time getting it off. I've tried to remove stainless steel sinks set in silicone and it's near impossible. If you can get a vise...

    It's turned all the way counter-clockwise and the packing still won't budge? If it's an old type sillcock (not a frost-free) you could grip the stem with vice-grips (not at the top) then gently...

    Make a dam by beading 100% silicone caulk from the tile to the inner tub. It should divert the water. Doesn't look pretty but works for me.

    They have a tool made for cutting PVC. I never bought one since I don't do a lot of plumbing work. I just use my power miter saw. It gives a nice, straight cut if you ease the blade down slowly.

    If it's like a shower head, you may be able to take it apart at the spray and drill a larger bore. (Don't blame me if you mess it up.) Not a plumber.

    I suspect she bought a, hard-to-match, faucet and drain without thinking ahead. BTW, if that's the case, clean them up and return them for a set without an overflow.
