    That platfom was constructed as part of the building and is not 'movable'. Tear it apart and build the new one out of 2x4s and plywood. It does not have to be "enclosed" with sheetrock.

    It is pretty hard to damage it by overtightening, but one problem is the valve. if it is a new one, which it appears to be. It would have been better if it were a 3/8" compression for the hose...

    Regarding the integral stops

    I have used very few toilet connectors with metal nuts, because they are too easy to cross thread when you make the connection. The settlement only covers supply lines that have failed and if you had...

    Well, first you have to see if there is one. If so, the only way for you to tell if it is working is to remove the top and see if the "flap" opens and closes. A plumber, however, would be able to...

    The toilet will NOT have a "P" trap under it. Other than that, all you have to do is install the piping the way you drew it. But some installers have a hard time doing that, and doing it correctly.

    I would NOT install a sanitary "cross" nor would our inspectors approve it. The proper fitting is a "back to back" fixture fitting. It is NOT a sanitary cross, nor is it a "double combo" but rather a...

    In the "old days" American Standard was one of the top brands, but in recent years that has not been the case. I do not think i have installed an American Standard faucet in the past 20 years.

    If I were there, I would "play it by ear" to take care of it, but I do not know what to tell you as far as DIYing it. When it happened, it would probably have taken about 2 minutes to fix it. By now,...

    Personally, I cannot remember EVER using 1 1/2" for a horizontal drain under a floor. We always used 2" miminmum. 1 1/2" was ONLY for waste arms and vents.
