    Washing Machine Outlet Box

    I think I have to replace a couple of those old screw down valves. I had a plumber come out and he put on a couple of brass hose bib ball valves, but the hot water one weeps around the ball. How do I...

    Water Heater Relief Discharge

    Am I okay if my water heater relief discharge goes into a drip pan that can overflow, if needed, to the dirt crawlspace?

    Ah, water stain

    I'm pretty sure something leaked at one time. I've redone plumbing and fixtures, so leak no more. Stain just looks unsightly. Thanks

    Water Stain

    I'm under the house and I find some old water stains near the pipes and vents. Some are white in color, some are black. I checked the wood and it is sound and the stains superficial. Should I sand...

    ABS Lawsuit

    Thanks, I found that stuff. The brand on the pipe says "Standard" but it was installed around the time here in Nevada. Might be something to all that.

    ABS/DWV repair

    On a 2" line, old 20 year ABS, it's leaking around the joints a little bit. Is there something you can buy to rejoin or meld or some kind of sleeve or should it be replaced? This particular union is...

    Pressure

    The best I can do is hooke it to the outside hose bib. I'll follow your tip, hook it to the bib, open a faucet inside, and then adjust the PRV. How's that?

    Optimum House Water Pressure

    This is nuts. Used to have 80-100 PSI so I added PRV with factory setting at 50. Read about that at the outside taps. I just put in the expansion tank for water heater. Now pressure is at 40. Is this...

    Indeed

    just mentioning the way they hooked it up. I've got the baby Det 5. They ran the line (extension) off the T for that hookup and I wanted to see if it would work for me.

    Got It

    hence my sign in name. "Bib" is actually that copper male fitting I screw the flex line into. I think we're good, then.

    Expansion tank beat to death

    I've read all the links and I think I'm on the right track, but I'd like to check. 40 gal LPG water heater, says the Det 5 from Watts will work, so I had a space issue to contend with. Cold line...

    Pre-soldered fitting

    anyone using these that you get at HD? Looked pretty good and the helper said all you needed to do was clean and flux? Do you need to add more solder or can you? Pros and cons?

    Water heater bang

    Guess it just sounded so unusual because it sometimes happens when you shut down a cold water line. Makes no sense.

    Bang or Ping in water heater

    I looked at some old threads and I'm not sure if I'm on the right track. I get a "bang" in the water heater, one only, as it nears its heating cycle, when I turn a valve off (like the sink or...
