    Yeah, I seem to split the plywood a lot when I try to screw it. I guess I'll have to continue using brackets when I need to recess blocking. I don't have the best framing and carpentry skills.

    I...

    Thanks for the input, everybody. How did you attach the plywood to the back of the stud bay? I guess I can always use the angle brackets.

    How to install blocking

    How do you typically install blocking in a stud bay when you have vertical drains and the like in that stud bay? I've used little angle brackets before, but I'm wondering if you folks know of an...

    Are we talking +-1/8" or +-1/16" tolerance for the vertical alignment between the riser and the ballcock nipple?

    I can see why these things are not cost effective for a plumber to install . I...

    I'm offended that you would suggest I might overtighten my fittings. I do recall having to crack the nut loose with vise grips. :)

    Thanks, guys. These $125 angle supplies with the fancy finish hit the wallet a lot harder than a braided hose. I'll report back.

    The angle supply has leaked gradually from the nut that clamps down on a brass sleeve,...

    Hosebib, I'm not sure any of those would work my application.

    I liked the stub-out idea, but either the guy at the counter at Ferguson's didn't understand what I was looking for or they don't...

    I sort of suspected as much when I looked at the short length of threads. I have to secure this pipe to the rim (band) joist because I'll have only about 18" of iron at the exterior wall penetration...

  12. How to secure black iron at the wall penetration

    How should I secure 1" black iron at the wall (rim joist) penetration? Can I use a floor flange? I'll be hooking up to CSST on the inside.

    The inspector ended accepting the manufacturer's instructions (1-1/2" vent) becaue the SaniFlo is more like a macerating toilet than an ejector pump.

    My 2-ton (24,000 BTU) LG unit has a setting for rapid cool down.

    Here in New Jersey this size feels about right given the porosity of my house envelope and the occasional week in...

    I believe the Uponor Aquapex is particularly freeze resistant since it's designed to be expanded over the fittings. It's a lot more resilient than some other stuff I tried.

    The inspector didn't allow that connection below the flood rim, even though the ejector would prevent a backup in the event of a clog. I guess a foolproof system is the way to go. I'll just have to...

    What size unit did you install? Is the area you're cooling tight and well-insulated? A two-ton unit is just about right for cooling our 650 square ft. main floor in the Northeast. You don't have to...

    Yeah, I guess you need a larger than average cutting wheel for the large diameter tubing. I've only used my small Ridgid cutter on 1" and smaller. Here's a note from the TracPipe manual:

    I'm not sure about Gastite, but TracPipe cuts very cleanly with a Ridgid close quarters tubing cutter. The TracPipe fittings actually flare the fittings as you tighten them.
