    Easy to install. I just used a hacksaw to cut out a 1 1/4 in section (package had...

    I like the idea of just replacing the supply line. But I've never installed a dishwasher. I was checking out the situation. The hole from under the sink is sealed with foam. Is it typically easy...

    Hammer Arrestor Installation Help

    Got banging when the dishwasher shuts off. Seems to be the only thing that causes the hammer.

    Here's what I have under the kitchen sink:

    Well, I'm 99% sure it was the gas pipe. The putty around the pipe/siding moved and water could have gotten in that way. For now I remolded the putty around it. I'll get some new stuff later.

    Thanks. It's really hard to see anything because of the wall framing but I can't see any water stains on the joists or on the subfloor as far as I can tell. It's almost like one of the pipes was...

    OK, makes sense. So what do you guys think is the reason that I keep getting backups? Is it bad design where the pipes are too level and the flow isn't fast enough? When I access the pipes and I...

    Thanks for the quick response.

    Just the one toilet in the basement causes the backup, as far as I can tell. It seems to me that the rest of the house connects to the main sewage outlet after the...

    Thanks for the warning. I have the same setup on the other side of my house so I'll inspect it to see what's up. It's on the unfinished side of the basement and much more accessible. If it's more...

    Outdoor Faucet Leaking Badly

    I have an outdoor frost-free faucet, not sure what brand (although the handle has a plate on it that reads 'proflow'), that does more than drips. Even when I turn it off as tightly as I can, water...
