    My wife did try the hot water and some dish soap, but it did't help. When I got home, it only took a minute or two to clear the clog with a plunger. As the father of 4 (all of whom are now grown) I...

    New Drake Toilet Clogged

    This past weekend I installed a new Drake toilet in the master bath. This is the fourth Drake toilet I've installed, and everything seemed to go just fine. It's been in use since Saturday afternoon...

    Thanks for the opinion. It seems to me like a great price also. I paid considerably more for the 3 I bought at least 5 years ago. I'm also lucky because at that price it's only available in...

    The $180 was for a Drake with elongated bowl so it's really $130 for all of the other items you list. For us, the only one we really care about is the advanced flush, i.e. double-cyclone. I like the...

  6. Drake or Drake II (has anyone successfully removed hard water stains from Sanagloss?)

    In our former house I replaced 3 old American Standard toilets with Drake toilets, two ADA height and one standard. We were extremely pleased with their performance. We've just moved and I've...

    The number in the tank is 389 it that helps. I already posted the rest of the information I have (although a lot of it other than the fact that it is 2" is speculation).

    Thanks. Do the "universal" flappers work? The Toto one seems to be out of stock at Toto. I think I can find it somewhere, but it's about $23. The Korky universal ones are a fraction of that and...

    Toto Toilet Improperly Installed?

    The toilet in the basement bathroom of the house we bought was leaking from the flapper. I thought it just needed a new flapper, but it seems as if the flapper doesn't sit flat. When I looked more...

    Apparently you're not only old - you're also cranky. Also I don't think you're solution will work well. If I put the box behind the pipe and then just re-attach things as they are, the box will be...

    I am more comfortable with electrical work than plumbing, but I think that it's going to be easier to move the pipe than to move the box. The cable to the left has very little slack in it, and it's...

    How Do I Fix This?

    The electric box is just hanging from the wires, which I'm pretty sure is a code violation. The previous homeowner (we just moved in) added that plumbing line to feed a refrigerator ice maker when...

    I just went downstairs and took a look. The supply pipes are all, as you said, CPVC. The waste lines, however, are PVC, and they also have the same yellow cement.

    What PVC Cement Dries Yellow?

    I've discovered that the prior owner of my new house did a lot of work himself, and not all of it is well done. Since I know a bit more about electrical work, I have a pretty good sense of some of...

    Do I really need an air gap? Isn't that to prevent backflow? If so, doesn't the airgap where the humifier tube enters the pipe suffice?
