    Here is a new 1-1/2 inch trap (retracting previous thoughts on a vent}

    Can someone explain to me why in all their photos they have a 90° down bend? Why is this even needed, instead of just having a sufficiently long drain tube coming down from the sink so that the outlet pipe just goes straight into the wall the way it normally is with regular bottle traps?

    Help me build a washer hose shut-off valve

    That's what NJ requires for ball valves. Trying to see if my valve is compliant.

    Help me build a washer hose shut-off valve

    This looks ideal https://catalog.nibco.com/item/ball-valves-7/8031w-series---full-port-forged-brass-ball-valves/80313w Too bad almost no one carries it and the price tag is $50…

    Help me build a washer hose shut-off valve

    I guess something like this? https://www.ferguson.com/product/champion-arrowhead-353bvlf-series-34-in-brass-fips-x-threaded-no-kink-hose-bibb-a353bvlf/_/R-5109106?toPdpDirectly=true&searchKeyWord=353bvlf&trackSignal=true Zero mention of ASME on it though. But...

    Help me build a washer hose shut-off valve

    Follow-up on my earlier thread… I'd like to build my own shut-off valves because the standard kits you get at HD don't really work for my setup. Can someone provide a link to components I can use to build a shut-off valve for washing machine hoses? I'm having a hard time finding something that...

    Expanding washer hose connections

    NJ plumbing code requires piping to be rated for 100 psi at 180º: https://up.codes/viewer/new_jersey/nj-plumbing-code-2018/chapter/3/materials#3.4.3

    Expanding washer hose connections

    The outlets you see in the corner of the picture have their own dedicated 20A circuit on which there is nothing else, so I think the existing electrical should suffice. For the water supply, I'm guessing I should tap the existing 3/4" line just before the reducer and run a new line for the...

    Expanding washer hose connections

    In terms of existing pipe topology, here’s what I have: 3/4” pipe splits into two pipes 3/4” for upstairs bathroom (sink, shower, toilet) 1/2” for basement and kitchen hot water splits into kitchen sink, dishwasher, and washing machine hookup cold water splits into kitchen sink, washing...

    haha that requires a 3/4" inlet…

    Expanding washer hose connections

    seems like a bad idea since those aren't rated for hot water I think this is what I'm looking for I think they are just old. You can still get them today but they are more expensive compared to the more standard ones. Apparently you can recharge them...

    Expanding washer hose connections

    And in case you’re wondering about the zip-tied moldy plastic tubing, that’s the condensate pump drain tube for the A/C installed by a “licensed contractor” before my time here (about ten years ago).

    Expanding washer hose connections

    So the odds of all four things (3 washers plus dryer) running at once are pretty close to zero. Existing piping is all exposed in the basement. Here’s the current setup: So question is, I need to split the hot water line three ways to the left and cold water four ways to the right. What parts...

    Expanding washer hose connections

    Hi, I currently have 1/2” copper pipe going to a gate valve and standard washer hose connectors for hot and cold water. This is hooked up with regular hoses to a full size washer. In the near future, I’m going to be adding a bunch of things here: another full size washer, a pedestal washer (LG...

    How do I get this nut (?) off?

    Yeah I tried both, didn’t work. Here’s a video of me trying both pieces as well as regular nuts https://share.icloud.com/photos/04dyAIQyH8cRKt7c4-3V4OJPQ

    How do I get this nut (?) off?

    Got a thread gauge. 11.5 seems right (also wow, inches are crazy enough, but the standard threads are 11 and a half?) Next step is to take a small flathead screwdriver and clean the threads I guess?

    How do I get this nut (?) off?

    Correct, both have the same behavior as what I get with the SJ nuts I got from Home Depot. Locks on for about two turns and that’s it.

    How do I get this nut (?) off?

    Thanks, since it’s Amazon I ordered it. Same problem. The threads are similar but the “outer” connection is a compression one rather than a slip nut.
