  2. "proper" method of bullnose around tub/shower surround?

    I am putting some 4.25" ceramic tile above the tub/shower surround in my kids' bathroom. I was wondering what the standard or proper way to align the bullnose in respects to everything else. The...

    Any comments on the suggestion of sanitizing the well/plumbing - suggested by the guy I bought the greensand filter?
    If the greensand filter worked to remove the smell before, why not now?

    Staining? I think so. When we moved in the house a couple years ago, I don't remember how bad it was...except for the fiberglass tub in the basement is really stained. But that was stained badly when...

    I've been adding a bunch of Potassium Permanaganate to the tank over the past month. I was usually adding about 4oz per month before. When I cleaned the brine tank a couple months ago, I saved much...
  9. water smells again

    It has been through at least 10 regenerations since the repair. It actually started working when I cleaned the injector/throat on the 9th of July. After it was working, I manually put it through...

    I purchased 2 sets of injector nozzle and throats and put a brand new set in. The filter is now drawing in the potassium in.
    But, the water still smells bad. When I first installed the filter, the...

    I think it's working now. I took the gray tube off and checked for suction at the injector nozzle housing. I felt a tiny bit of suction (maybe) with a little bit of pressure. It seemed to pulse about...

    The pressure is 40/60. I just replaced the pressure tank last week, but was having the no pot/perm drawing problem before that.

    When drain line is mentioned, is that the drain line of the brine tank? I blew that out. It's clear.
    The other drain line from the Fleck head is obviously clear since when put into a manual cycle,...

    I did clean the throat at the same time. I thought it was all just called the same thing. Sorry about that.

    I found this manual online: ...
  16. Trouble with greensand filter not drawing in Potassium Permanganate

    I searched the form, but got so many results that weren't relevant - I have to say my search wasn't very good.

    I'm a homeowner, not a plumber. Though, I did successfully install the greensand...

    I was snowblowing the neighbor's driveway a few weeks ago and we started about things we're doing. I mentioned that I was going to sanitize my well because of the rotten egg smell. He said he had a...
