    Yes, we know it is a favor. The manager, Scott, was a life-saver years ago when someone hit the main and no one had the pieces to fix it! I will bake them cookies for life! I swear I will never,...

    They were attempting to find the galvanized end point. No one knew where the rusty galvanized ended. When the PE came out of the meter, it was in an arc and they were trying to trace it and broke...

    This is why plumbers get paid the big buck!

    So, the galvanized pipe from the 1950's broke under the patio. Scores of plumbers gave estimates for more than I make in month, but when we settled on one, he took the deposit and disappeared. So,...

    Oh Gary! At this point, I just want WATER. The last plumber took the money and ran. I don't have 5 grand that the good guys want and probably deserve. I just thought PEX would be easier because of...

    At this point, it looks like I will be doing a lot of it myself. The plumber we finally agree upon was supposed to be here last Tuesday and have water on by Wednesday. I have called several times...

    Thank you so much for you help, folks! Here is the update:


    Okay. We decided on replacing the whole main line. So far, I want PEX because 300 feet of copper will cost more than my house! I...

    Wow, this is going to be much more complicated than I thought it would be. I will look for the charts in the morning. I tried looking through the town building codes to see what the rules are. The...

    Thanks, Jimbo. I am going to take some pictures in a little while. I was waiting for the water to drain from the big hole so I can see the pipe better. I do remember that a few years ago, when the...

    My gas line comes from the front of the house. My electricity is overhead. So I just have the water supply and the two septic tanks. Digging should be more frustrating than difficult. My yard is...

    I didn't know that the plastic stuff came in rolls. I was pricing the rolls of K type copper tubing- 1 inch and it is pretty spendy for 200 feet. I am leaning toward copper so far because many of...

    I nearly cried when I opened the 789.87 dollar water bill! A huge water leak and we didn't notice. Called a friend, who remembered stepping in a muddy place at the far end of the patio a couple...

    I live in the High Desert. We have some pretty cold winters and the heater is used Dec-Mar. My house is a 1950's ranch with 4 bedrooms/ 3 baths. 3/2 are original. In the 1970's they converted the...

    Well, I crawled under and loosened the connections under the sink. Houston, we now have running water. I will try loosening the ones closer to the angle valves. The water pressure isn't full, but...

    Nothing soldered. Just those screw on replacement valves from Lowe's. I didn't see her screw them on, but I can't seem to loosen them so I guess that may be the case. In fact, the cold water one only...

    Gary, I think you mean the supply to the house when you say supply valve. That seems to have a lever that is either off or on.

    I tried to get under there again and just take the hose off and see...
