    Ya, that's what I thought. I was hoping there was a sneaky way to make LED work up there. I know there are some less than 1" deep, but I'm still in trouble with the transformer cause I have nowhere...

    I have low hanging ductwork that is framed in with 1" of clearance (they used metal RC strapping). It's against a wall in an area that needs some lighting. Does such a solution exist where recessed...

    Thanks guys, I figured as much - I'll start digging. It shouldn't need a vent as the sink will be about 3' away from the drain.

    To be honest I expected more backlash than that. :)

    Tapping into 4" drain

    Is there any kind of special fitting out there for literally tapping into a 4" drain? It's ABS, running in a side wall in the basement, almost completely surrounded by spray foam - there is about...

    Plastic vs brass inserts for pex

    Does the insert matter for pex? I know the ferrule has to be plastic for pex, but what about the insert?

    If it matters, this is for a 1/4" poly/pex/plastic line (whatever is standard with a...

    I tried to take it apart and had no luck - tomorrow I might try a bit harder, but the appliance parts store sells a 5/16"x1/4" push on fitting specifically for fridge lines. I may just put my tail...

    This is what used to be on the end of the fridge line (don't ask me why my plumber cut it off), but if you know what kind of line that is, I'd be grateful!

    The threaded end was 1/4", but the line...

    Well, I wouldn't place a bet on it, but I tried 1/4" and it was too small, and 3/8" was too big. I called a guy at an appliance parts store and he said they have e 5/16"x1/4" pushon reducer for...

    Unique icemaker supply stop valve

    I'm trying to hook up my icemaker/water inlet for my fridge (Kitchenaid). Apparently it's a 5/16" line. Rather than convert to 1/4", then connect to my 1/2" water line, does anyone know if the...

    Just as a test, I turned on my kitchen tap from cold, and it took 1.37 gallons (22 cups) of cold water before the hot was hot. That was with the tap on full.

    I also checked the tankless, and it...
