    Building up flange

    Hey guys, looking for advice on properly setting toilet flange on concrete slab. My original plan was to put the stainless steel flange on the slab and have the tile flush with the top. After adding the ditra material and tile, I’m wondering if I should build up the flange level some. I saw a...

    Help removing shower valve cartridge. Mainline

    I have a Mainline (trouble finding any help with this brand) shower valve and can’t figure out how to remove the cartridge. No set screws and I tried turning the whole unit and can hear a plastic cracking sound (doesn’t sound good). Any advice? Thanks.

    Options for outdoor tankless gas water heater hookup

    looking to connect from 3/4” PEX inside to my tankless heater outside. I know the most popular seems to be copper. I’ve never done soldering before, but I’d be willing to give it a shot. I was at the store and saw the corrugated stainless steel hoses. Are those ok for outside? Could/should I put...

    Washing machine standpipe question

    I have my stand pipe at 19” for my washing machine. Someone said I may have issues with water coming back up when draining and I should cut and go longer. From y’all experience is this a problem? Thanks

    Separate tub and shower share supply?

    thanks Reach. I’ll probably do the separate 1/2” hot for shower. I’m trying to use as few fittings and materials, mainly to maximize flow.

    Separate tub and shower share supply?

    Should I do 1/2 branch for hot and 3/4 for cold for both the tub and separate shower to share? I also have double vanities in this bathroom that I was going to drop 3/4” hot/cold then split side to side 1/2” to each sink?

    Separate tub and shower share supply?

    So I’m trying to figure out “best” way to run my supplies to a soaking tub and walk-in shower that are back to back in the same bathroom. If I branch down from 3/4” trunk in joists above, could I use the same 3/4” branch to supply both the tub on the left of that wall and the shower to the...

    Kitchen drain/vent routing ideas

    Here’s what I ended up with. Ended up drilling through the girt behind the stud pack and, because of the angle, had the go through the horizontal girt to turn the vent vertical again. If I had started lower on the drain stub up, like Wayne suggested, may have cleared that horizontal girt.

    Kitchen drain/vent routing ideas

    Hey guys, one last question on this. Would it be up to code (IPC 2012) to use a 60 degree fitting to go up through the studs to instead of 45 degree? I know the code doesn’t seem to say specifically.

    Washing machine drain help

    I did see the minimum 4” somewhere. I am hoping for a bit more just to be safe. Just want to be sure the trap will flow ok if it goes backward then forward, but I guess that’s why it’s adjustable in the first place.

    Washing machine drain help

    I’ll dry fit things today and try to get a better photo. I’d like to fit everything in that single bay as long as the trap arm length will work.

    Washing machine drain help

    That stud to the right isn’t supporting anything. There’s a 15” I beam right next to it. So I could probably cut it back or remove it as long as it doesn’t effect any codes.

    Washing machine drain help

    Trying to plan the drain for the clothes washer. Our code is 2012 ipc. I’m trying to keep the trap within the one stud bay since they are 2x4 and I need a 2” pipe. I have about 6-7 inches behind the 2x4 wall that I could use that space. Could I sani-t back towards the space behind the studs...
