    Years ago I did something like this using an automatic watering unit from a farm supply house. The problem is float valves do not always work right and may stick on or leak. In a toilet they just...

    Yup, could have done it faster, or I could have taken longer. Since I was not on the clock I did it at my own pace with out rushing in any way. I figure if I were to hire this out I would expect it...

    The problem was 50+ years of turbulent water had worn away the pipe wall just past the valve.

    My gut says the elbo is broken under the floor. Can you add a support at the top of the block wall? If so I would do that before excivating any more soil/cement. Be carful you don't undermine the...

    Is an old school compression fitting really that bad? I am talking the ones with a metal band crushed in under a wrenced on nut. Not the shark bite crap.

    One concern I have is that the curb stop is not 100% at least I don't think it is. I was thinking compression fitting to the first valve so I dont have to worry about the little dribble messing up...

    Thank you. That's about what I had in mind. I have a 12" or 18" long bit for the drill. Start breaking up the 1/2 block above the valve. Once it is out I can work down to the valve and pipe.
  10. Main valve buried in cement needs replacement, How would you break it out?

    Hello, I have an old house that has had many changes over the years. I am not sure when the pluming was changed from a well to city water main, could be the 70's could be the 40's. The original...

    Mine came as a system. There should be a solenoid valve wired to a control box. On my system that box has an out side air temp sensor and a couple of sensors in the ducting to monitor humidity. ...

    I guess I should have mentioned our Delta is the one with an on off lever seperate from the temp setting. Also the valves I have on the outlets do leak a bit so they work well for diverting the...

    DWV, supply lines, floor joist.

    Also take a VERY close look at the electrical as well.

    I ran 3/4" copper trunk lines to the kitchen. Then each fixture got 1/2" pex. The only exception is the main shower. I ran 3/4" copper from the heater and reduced to 1/2" copper inches before the...

    My guess is the leaking valve is sending the water out the bowl refill tube. That would totaly bypass the tank and your food coloring.
