    Gerberit Wall Hung Toilet Rough-In

    Either way you first diagramed it will work. No need to use a wye on the stack. If you don't have that much room underneath then bring the line up to the left of the toilet, put a heel outlet above the floor and turn the 90 on the toilet to the left.

    Notching studs?

    It's only a nailer for the drywall, run a cup saw through it leaving as much as possible. How did you intend on turning this into a double vanity, you can put only 1 trap on a trap arm. You need to either cut in a san tee underneath, run over to within 42 inches of the other sink then revent or...

    Bolt on wall mounted toilet came out of wall

    is this a residential toilet or a commercial toilet? Do you mean when you backed off the mounting nut the threaded rod came out with it? You should be able to screw it back in. There should have been a backup nut to lock it in place. Depending on the wall material there also should be an...

    Replace 63 year old Cast Iron drain lines or no?

    If it's within your budget I'd change it now while you have the chance. A lot cheaper then opening up walls and ceiling later.

    Kohler valvet question

    keep the stem half closed. Tighten it by hand ensuring that the stem can spin freely until the bonnet is tight. Why not replace the hot and cold at the same time while the water is off? Do not apply any grease on the stem, have had them open by itself after using greaseon the stem (brass barrel...

    Does shower faucet stem packing nut need to be removed before removing the stem ?

    Make sure the water is off and the stem is open (the bibb washer is not compressed against the seat.) This will not only make removal easier it wil also ensure you don't strip the threads in the valve body. Some valves like harcraft for example have fine soft threads and trying to remove the...

    Tight space trap arm question

    It doesn't appear that you are that much of a stickler, it could have been done correctly without reframing anything or dealing with any cement. Nor is a lack of convenience a valid reason for a code violation. While structural conditions play into an inspectors decision it is not applicable...

The combo picking up the W/B should have been cut in the next stud bay then run back to the standpipe. While not...

    Crown-Vented Laundry Drain Trap?

    I already said it means from the crown weir of the trap to the opening in the san tee. The hubs have nothing to do with it. The same requirement applies to hubless pipe and fittings.

    Crown-Vented Laundry Drain Trap?

    Actually he could remove/relocate that stud on the left side to give him the required 2x trap arm required. The offset in the riser is OK as long as the p-trap is set level.

    Crown-Vented Laundry Drain Trap?

    The measurement is taken from the crown weir to the opening in the tee. In that situation the inspector is likely to overlook it.
