    I see your point. Darn. So this won't work unless the pump is mounted at the shower area near the "Tee" fitting - since the temp control is built into the pump. I suppose I could mount the pump in...

    Thank you for setting me right. I will use "plan 3" based on your advise and put the pump in the return line near where it connects to the drain fitting. Should I still use the check valve between...
  3. Another question on recirculating pump - how to connect to water heater?

    2017820177I have been waiting for the day when my 20-year old water heater needed replacement to take my house plumbing project to the next step. That day has come. I just bought a new electric water...
  4. I think you're right. Brillant! Why don't I just...

    I think you're right. Brillant! Why don't I just install a NTP to PEX coupler and use that to get the drain, flush valve, and relief valve, to the outside? I have plenty of 1/2 inch PEX tubing and...

    You're right. I need to sweat a short (maybe 3 inches) straight piece into the threaded fitting then sweat the 90 onto that. But even then, my 90 is only about 1/2 inch away from threaded coupler. I...

    Good point. If the valve pops/opens, anything that drips will go into the drain pan.


    I can't add much of a straight section because the pipe needs to clear the top edge of the drain pan. Not...

    I'm installing a Steam Generator. I have to solder a copper 90 deg fitting onto a short threaded copper fitting which is threaded into the Protection Valve. Thiscopper fitting has threads on one end...

  9. Self installation of electric water heater. PEX, Recirculation Pump, etc. - Questions

    It's time to repalce my 20 year old water heater. I plan to do this myself - but first I have a couple of questions.
    My current unit is a State 510E Censible. 4500W upper and lower elements. 52...

    I had forgotten where this post was - this forum moves pretty fast.

    I now know that the noise is from the hot water side. I can turn the hot off and the noise goes away. It's a weird problem...
  11. Air in pipes? Nothing has been opened/drained. Could my Well be running dry?

    I have not been to this forum in a while - everthing has been working well (until now), and no projects lately. I hope everyone is doing good.

    Yesterday i noticed a noise from the kitchen faucet...

    Thanks for your reply.
    I could run a dedicated return line. If I'm understanding the term properly. When I rebuilt my master shower/bathroom I converted the hot and cold PB lines coming out of the...
  13. Installing 1/2" NTP Grundfos recircultion pump on 3/4" NPT Water Heater

    I bought a Grundfos recircultion pump (model UP10-16BN5/ATLC) to reduce the time it takes to get hot water to the shower on the far side of the house. The plan was to install the pump in-line on the...

    I'm not a plumber ... but here's what I read: PB pipe is more susceptable to failure if the water has a high level of chlorine in it. So if this house is on municiple water (likely to have higher...

    I just looked up the Stiebel Eltron Accelera 300 heat pump water heater. It sure is the cadillac of heaters but with a price to match (about $2000 after tax rebate (internet price without shipping)....
  16. What about those new heat Pump water heaters?

    I saw one of those new Rheem heatpump water heaters at HD today. 50 gallon goes for $1500 (so $1000 with $500 tax credit). Still more than a conventional unit but it claims to save 50% over...

    I considered solar heating but after reading posts here, it seemed most do not recommend them. One downside to solar heating in my case is that I don't have roof facing the right direction (my roof...

    I just reviewed specs again I downloaded, and I notced the Bradford White spec/sizing was recommending two (2) 65 gallon tanks, that's why the First Hour Available is 154 gallons and the Recovery is...

    Good advise. Thank you.
    I reason for the upsize in water heaters is because I just remodeled my masterbath and installed a large jacuzzi type tub (65 gal). I had a spa-tub before but it was smaller....
  20. Need advise on Electric Water heater - Rheem or Bradford White or other

  21. Finished install

    Thanks for all the help. I was able to order two drains without the overflow and drill the overflow holes where I needed them. That took care of the drain overfloe hole location issue. I got the...

    Need help with toilet install

    I read about installing toilets many times - and thought it was going to be easy, but I'm having problems with the mounting bolts.

    I removed my toilet to re-tile. Now I'm having trouble...
  24. Back to square one

    Thanks again.
    I guess I need to go back to the supplier. Perhaps my sink style needs that spacer used for glass vessel sinks shown in the instructions you attached.
  25. I understand you - it's not the correct way. But...

    I understand you - it's not the correct way. But will it work this way? If not, I have to return everything and start over.
