    Check valve question

    I moved into an 11 year old townhouse last year. Replaced HW, expansion tank, and PRV valve (house pressure was 100 psi).

    OK - to start with I'm confident none of the previous owners touched this water heater.

    So - I figured the T&P was defective as it "weeped" everytime hot water was used plus I couldn't budge the...

    Thanks -

    I'm planning to replace the T&P tonight. Will check pressure on WH with gage.

    The water doesn't feel too hot - but I have turned it down as the previous owners had it cranked up.

    Thanks for...

    Thought I had it licked . . .

    Last summer I moved into a 10 year old townhouse.

    Several months ago I discovered the house pressure was about 100 psi. Had the PRV replaced. This week had the expansion tank replaced as it had...

    OK - I'm listening

    I haven't touched the T&P - I'm confident previous owners didn't check it either - but who knows.

    I ran some hot water at the kitchen sink and the T&P released a little. When using no hot water...

    Replacing Thermal Expansion Tank

    Is it difficult to replace a thermal expansion tank?

    Heater is gas

    Tonight I ran all faucets for about 5 minutes. Got rid of the cloudiness (which apparently is only on the first floor). About a half hour later it returned to the powder room downstairs - but not...

    Holy crap

    Interesting read. The house was not vacant when I bought it - I try to run the extra bath faucets once a week - just to keep things in check.

    I always turn on the hot water before using the...

    Yes

    I have an expansion tank - it is original (assuming) with a 11 year old Bradford White 40 gal WH.

    As a note - the HW from the faucet is very cloudy and pretty hot. I moved in August of 2008 -...

    Thanks

    Since the noise/creak decreased after tightening the tub drain cover could this indicate anything?

    Perhaps the drain basket is slightly loose at the tub?

    Thanks

    Believe it or not there is no access panel - I had a plumber in for something else when I first moved in (4 months ago) and he used a camera to check this particular tub - no leaks underneath at the...

    OK - stupid question?

    Went to Home Depot - no Moen cartridges. Lowes has a few (1222) but all of them have only one o-ring towards the end of the cartridge.

    It's obvious I'm no plumbing expert (that's why I'm here)...

    Does it make a difference if

    All the Moen cartridges at Lowes must have been a bad order as all only had one o-ring (I Moen cartridge I pulled out has two).

    I used a Danko cartridge. Does it make a difference? I could run...

    I thought about it being the neighbors (in a way I hope it isn't as I plan to fix this). The neighbors on that side are never home (vacation property).

    The townhouse on that side is also a...
