    It just makes my head hurt..............
    Made you take out type L soft copper? Hope he gave you a good reason, I don't see what the big deal is. Just a note: you can no longer wet vent a laundry...

    Ok so it's the tub, at least that's a start. I have seen a fan pull air through a trap but the fan was much bigger and the room was sealed pretty tight. Took a wee bit of effort to open the door. ...

    Were you able to find the area of the smell? Did you check your traps first? A trap can siphon if there is something plugging it downstream, but you should be able to tell which trap is dry if that...

    First thing is put your nose right down into that tub drain. It'll be pretty strong so there would no mistaking where it's coming from. If it's not the tub then try the sink drain and under the...

    It should be a big deal. You shouldn't have a copper to galv. connection, I hope he installed some brass between the two. I'd get him out there and have him fix it and do it the right way, you're...

    Some toilets have a shorter horn on them, which is the ceramic ring on the bottom of the toilet that initially contacts the wax ring forming the seal. Some toilets have longer ones and some have...

    Hmmm, well one of two things, either you have a crack or that little boy is peeing all over the place. Probably peeing around the toilet seat bolts and it's running down the bolts and dripping onto...

    This is a good topic. A few years ago the UPC started allowing plastic pipes in any building. What started happening is plumbing contractors started designing high rises with a typical cast iron...

    One thing to keep in mind is that one of the selling points of PEX was it's ability to withstand freezing without bursting. This was a big selling point but has proven to be untrue. The manufacturers...

    Just like cacher said, soft copper, no matter how careful you are with it, will never be perfectly round. Even if it's just ever so slighty "egged" you won't get a proper seal on that sharkbite. ...

    I've heard of marvel rings but the only ones I've ever seen are brass soldered onto copper. I have to say I've never seen an ABS marvel, same thing I guess? My question would be why wouldn't you...

    I don't know what code you're under but it looks like you've got a really long trap arm. UPC requires 1 1/2" trap arms to be no longer than 3' 6" developed length. How picky is your inspector? I'd...

    Is the hand held shower supply line that comes out of the wall lower than your standard shower head? It sounds like hot water expansion in the pipes is causing the hand held shower valve and piping...

    I don't trust anything that relies on a rubber O ring. Especially if it's hidden in a wall. You stated that you're reusing old brass for water pipe? Some of the old brass I've seen up here has...

    My guess is since the house was built in 1952 Nuke was right when he said it probably has galvinized pipes or maybe even some old crusty cast iron. My guess is also that the vertical drain is 1-1/2...
