Thanks terry. the old one would have required using a screw driver. the top is screwed on.
Hey guys, I have a 1 piece Toto toilet that had a Hunter 612 fill valve in it. I tried a korky 528 quiet fill and it doesn't refill the bowl with enough water. Anyone know the correct fill valve to...
It is also possible that the T&P valve on your old heater was stuck shut and could have ended in a very serious problem at some point. Now that you have a new one the new one is working as it should...
Yes, you could remove the nipple and use a pvc male adaptor and a short piece of pvc and a trap adaptor or a trap adaptor that glues inside a hub.
take a torch to the lead and melt it till it all runs out. then dig out the oakum and remove the piece in the hub and install a new longer piece. They make rubber seals to use instead of the lead....
plus the stats are plus or minus 10 degrees from setting.
It seems to me all of you people with a post or 2 are just the owner of this scam trying to water down the facts. It is a scam plain and simple and if any of you are not the owner and really think it...
If you don't plan on filling it, you could try a grid strainer.
that's a common problem. it's not a regular popup. they tend to drain slower than a normal lav sink drain. I have even seen the slam shut when draining a full sink.
Make sure the water heater is set to only 120 degrees. also. if you do have a pressure reducing valve and you still are getting a pressure of over 75 psi then I would say the PRV is indeed bad and...
Looks like a Gerber.
This is a gerber looks close yours might be an older version.
I would go with a bradford white 50 gallon.
Use a 90 with a 1 1/2" on the heel.
glue in a small piece of pipe then use a fernco to connect from the plastic to the old lead.
If you put the handle on without the rest of the trim and turn it can you get hot water? also you can turn off both valves and pull the clip on the top that holds the cartridge in and then remove the...
you have 2 stops on that valve one on the right and one on the left. use a screw driver and make sure the left one assuming its not backwards is open all the way.
If you damaged the valve body then you need to install a new shower valve. remove the cartridge and check it and see if you scraped it or bent it in some way.
It sounds like the flame arrestor is dirty. It will be a pain to clean but you need to vacuum the lint and dust from it. It is located under the heater in the center. You will have to make some kind...
Good to hear it. Yea, people find it hard to believe that a toilet can waste soo much water but they can.
Also check the flappers on the toilets. put some food coloring in the tanks of the toilets and wait 15-20 minutes and see if the color makes its way to the bowl.
Why not use a lift and turn. plus get one that is glue pipe so you can make it whatever size you need.
Is there a name on the toilet?
I probably have a bad check valve on the discharge line.
It has been taken off the market at least in the US. I have done countless repairs to that horrible stuff, It's complete junk. I for one would not use a sharkbite valve just because it isn't listed...
I have never seen a sharkbite listed to fit PB. you could get another multi turn stop and in most cases the stem will work on that older valve. new packing and new washer. If that easy fix won't work...
