    After the water was shut off and the steam gone...I looked and it appeared that the hose was touching that bottle of dishwashing soap. The red stains look to me like rust. That bottle is stationary...

    Floodsafe hoses

    So I've read about how terrible Floodsafe hoses are.

    My question is, what's to prevent a "regular" stainless steel braided hose from busting?

    This happened to me yesterday - came home, opened...

    I just checked the pressure before and after the AP903 (with the AP910 non-carbon block filter) today and I'm seeing a 10psi drop from 70=>60.

    This is not good.

    It has been less than a month....

    Sorry to hear you are having the same problem. 3M sent me TWO AP917HD filters and both lasted only 8 days or so. The water was unbelievably clear and it was made more obvious to me when they sent me...

    Thanks Asktom.... I will procure a washer if this setup starts to leak. So far so good.

    As for the bathtub the plumber came back and redid it so that I have a trap I can take apart now if I have...

    When I first put it in...it would trigger, empty the bucket in 2-3 seconds.....trigger again...repeat....

    It doesn't run that often at all whenever I am in the basement. I don't notice it.

    But...

    On the road....

    The mini vent is connected to the "t" in pic 2. Of the first post right where trap is.

    The house is old 1947.

    There is no tub overflow. The tub does not have one and there...

    Ok just showered, filled the bathtub........watched it drain (I guess it's about the same rate as the 1st floor), ran downstairs to see if the laundry sink backed up and it didn't.

    And I can hear...

  10. Bathtub redirect and concrete laundry sink!

    Plumber redirected the 1st floor bathtub to the vent line today.

    Initially the problem was the bathtub kept backing up and everytime I plunged it I got food particles in the bathtub.

    I thought...

    Plumber came by to finish the condensate drain for the tankless heater today...and popped open the trap cleanouts (street and house).

    Interestingly, the water that had pooled up in the exposed...

    Well I am seeing some pressure drop now after 7 days. Haven't heard back from 3M yet on what they saw with my first filter.

    However, I experimented a little with the PRV and cranked it up to the...

    Ha. Well I filled the sump pump with some bluestone gravel I had from when I had my driveway paved with asphalt. It's about the same size as pea gravel so why not use it. Filled it about 1" from the...

    That's what I thought! Although to be honest I've never cleaned it out in the 7 years I've been here. Do I expect to find the-most-digusting-things-I've-ever-seen when I open that trap up??

    Hi Dana. Thanks for the input. It's a lot to digest. :D

    Let me clarify a few points.

    For loss of power I have a generator that I will connect the circuit for the outlet for the sump pump via...

    Doesn't appear so. When I dug the pit for the sump, there was nothing below the concrete floor. I have a 3' ditch on the high side spanning past the house that's filled with gravel + 4" perforated...
  17. Exposed water main in basement and dehumidifier options

    I have a cut out in the basement slab where the water main comes into the house.

    This is the spot where water came up and in and flooded more than half of the basement a few years back. I then put...

    New filter received yesterday. Swapped it out and now I see the expected 1-3psi pressure drop. Spoke to Chad at 3M re: what the expected pressure drop should be.

    After speaking with Chad he said...

    Thanks for all the info. Fwiw I filled tub yest while still on bypass and the difference was ridiculous. The turbidity alone was cause for concern. I had never realized how cloudy my water is without...

    Thanks a lot for posting that. I did call them and gave been waiting for a replacement filter. Sorry to hear you are having issues as well. I will keep you posted on what happens next...

    20 from. Operating psi range is 25-125. I can't find any documation on "expected" pressure drop.

    If the new filter doesn't last a year and does the same thing I'm gonna make 3m do something about...

    Noticeably worse last night my wife complained.

    Snapped a pic without adjust the hose stream this morning with the filter on and off.

    At a wider stream the water was just dribbling out.

    The first gauge reads the incoming pressure so that should be the same regardless, n'est-ce pas? When no water is being used both gauges read the same. So that, in essence, is the incoming pressure.

    The filter cartridge for the ap903 is enclosed in the housing.

    The head, which is stainless steel, remains.

    There is a quick disconnect feature and you swap out the entire blue cartridge.
