    Thanks, the sleeves were preexisting i.e. I have no way to secure the parts without them. As it turns out, the Aberdeen likely has undergone design changes since the model I have (from 2003)--the...

    OK well upon further reflection, it seems the best approach will be to cut-away the damaged wood, such that when I replace the faucet the cylindrical retaining rings sit flat against the underside of...

    Our disposal failed and while under the kit. sink I noticed that our two-hole faucet, one for the discharge and one for the lever/handle/valve, is loose. It seems that over the years water has gotten...

    I really like the PEX-with-insulation idea--but omg Home Depot only sells 3/4" in 100ft rolls for $50 bucks. And it doesn't look as if Sharkbite connectors will allow me to use my PVC Sch40 pipe, it...

    Pressure is normal i.e. 40-60psi and I do have another toilet at the same level w/the FM400 and it works just fine. Indeed our swimming pool has a filler that's a 400-style Fluidmaster and it's...

    Even ignoring the cost, I'd have to figure-out a connection to the closet flange. Given the toilet is a 1.6gpm flush and in perfect shape, it makes most sense to give it away and install an...

    You know how it's supposed to work, yes? The pump feeds the tanks and your house piping and pressurizes the entire system to 60lbs at which point the pump is supposed to turn off. Then the tanks help...
