    Interesting. My gas pipe into the house is sloped upwards, and has a concentric profile like that. It leaked last night under the heavy downpours - had never seen that before. Mine is metal in...

    I know it isn't technically properly vented. The laundry sink isn't either and it has worked perfectly for 90 years. Both the laundry sink and standpipe drain perfect. Have run many loads of wash...

    Torqued the no hub couplings to 60 in-lb, and all has been well, knock on wood, so far at both ends.

    Don't think this house ever had coal heat or hot water (my parents' home did, but is a few years older than mine and is also dual set up for electric and gas lights!). I assume it was built in the...

    Apparently the pipe was made in Salem, NJ. Likely Salen Brass and Iron Foundry, per this 1916 ad on using cast vs wrought sanitary pipe.

    Ok! I'm finally laying in bed. Tired.

    Probably spent around $125-150 for pipe, solve to, no hub fittings, all US made. Had to make a special trip to HD to get US made no hubs as the Lowes ones...

    Ok, well my concern was that it wouldn't snap and rather crush to a jagged end... Then I'd have more trouble. I thought moving around it, like a small tubing cutter would minimize risk. This stuff...

    Charlotte Pipe TruFit System - important?

    Bought a bunch of 4" sch 40 PVC at Lowes to tie in to some bad CI pipe. It was all Charlotte brand. In more than one place it says to not mix with other brands, because Charlotte uses the same...

    I picked up two of them. First went to lowes, but the couplings were Chinese made, so I went to HD where I found US made couplings. Got the pipes, couplings, fittings, etc., so we are ready to go...

    Went down in the basement tonight to find a water spot on the floor. It hasn't rained, and we havent gotten water in our basement in years. I tracked it and got to this:

    So I did some more checking about my leak. It leaked right down to the bottom of the flap. In fact it looked like it was 1/16 below the top of the grey part.

    it could be, but while there always was a very slow leak that caused a very seldom cycling of the fill valve, it is very fast now that I have the other seal on. Im going to try the double trick, and...

    I stopped the water when just the red gasket was covered but not the black thing on top. I could still hear water trickling, so it seems that it is the gasket somehow. These things are pretty...

    Hi!

    Yes it is a green rubber duck!

    Unfortunately my job is not as good as Id like, while the first few flushes it seems to seal and hold water, we woke up this AM to the toilet pulling water...

    Then put the flap on and tightened it with the black nut. The nut can be really hard to get real tight. Getting it to click a few tines, requires some good force, and one of the little tabs that...

    Well, work has been hectic and I've been traveling a lot. My home repairs amounted to the replacement of a through wall AC which took a lot of time. Finally I've replaced that gasket.

    Hello,

    I have a champion from around 2010. It doesn't have the piston, but does indeed leak so I hear the water coming to fill it back.

    Can anyone advise the best approach for the flap style...
