    Comparison to the car made me consider what "quality" is today. Maybe plastic compared to brass doesn't mean it is not quality.

    Just came back from a plumbing house I've used in the past. The...

    Try doing mattress shopping sometime. There is no way to compare mattresses from store to store because each store has a different name for their mattress. It may be a mattress under the same brand...

    When it cost $250 to buy a kitchen faucet of quality, there has been a shift and I didn't change with it.

    Maybe...
  4. Kitchen sink faucet - plastic --- did I fall asleep

    It has been a while since I had to replace any faucet in my kitchen. Went to Lowes today to replace it, my wife picked out the faucet from looking at the wall hangings, it was a known brand and home...
  5. Price Pfiester bath faucet now turns backward

    Ok, this is weird.

    I recently tiled the bath surround and had removed the faucet handles and other stuff. While working there was a little white plastic stop that fell off the stem. I waited...
  6. Just came back from Lowes - cadet 3 - I think it will be

    Man reading some of the warnings you would think we are talking medical equipment. Such as warnings that you may need to adjust the chain as a reason to pass on a certain toilet or tighten the...

    There is a regulator in the meter pit (owned by water company) and there is a regulator inside the house, installed when city water was added.

    I'm laughing. You are right, I didn't read the instructions...just installed it.

    Thinking now I did see adjustments available on the tower. Maybe I should go by the just let it be, if it ain't...

    True.

    We'll see how this one goes.

    I can always lower the pressure at the regulator in the meter pit.
  10. Well it has been three days now and the...

    Well it has been three days now and the Fluidmaster is quiet and working. Weird that thwo different Korky towers didn't work and one new cap. Korky's are around $13 and Fluid master is around...

    Yes Korky sent a new cap under warranty.
    Yes I did the hose in the proper position.
    Lifting the hose didn't stop anything.

    I went a bought a Fluidmaster (which is cheaper than the Korky)....

    Think I have the answer but it worked fine for twenty three years with its current plumbing.

    I just noticed that the water supply to the toilet "T"s in before the house pressure regulator. There...

    That is what I thought.

    When I wrote my question tried at some humor but reading it back, it didn't work. I was trying to make the tube seem like it had a thought process.

    I really think it...
  14. It is stuffed into the overflow tube. Why do you...

    It is stuffed into the overflow tube. Why do you ask? How does a tube with water flowing out know if it is in a tube or attached by a clip. And if it knows, why would it care. :)

    Today, I did pull it apart, cleaned the screan and the valve diaphram. They were perfectly clean.

    Since the other day the hissing had stopped but then this morning all H broke lose and the valve...

    Pulled the tube and let it run into the tank and not the refill tube.
    It stopped running when the tanks fill line was reached. Let it sit for a while, came back and the tank water had not risen one...

    But where is the water going? It isn't coming out the tube, it isn't going into the tank, the flapper valve isn't leaking. Weird that both Korky fill valves made the same noise.

    Thanks for the...
  18. Water use - hissing G-Max Korky 528 fill valve - Quiet Fill

    I'll get to my high water use after the story.
