    What could cause hammer-like sound at water service entry point?

    Thanks, following up on your questions: 1. No pressure-reducing valve. 2. Each event lasts about 1 second; an event consists of between 1 and 4 staccato sounds, and then that's it. 3. I called the city and they said I am on tank-fed gravity flow, but the helper said she would query the...

The underground line surfaces in the crawlspace of my 1-level ranch. It's then...

    Can anyone suggest measures to remediate exterior tub drain rust?

    Can anyone suggest measures to remediate exterior tub drain rust?

    Can anyone suggest measures to remediate exterior tub drain rust?

    Greetings to the group: This post seeks info on removing drain rust beneath a 1962-era cast iron tub before resurfacing. I inspected the bottom of my tub, from the crawlspace. Some fresh-looking rust is emerging from between the shoe gasket and the tub bottom. It has spread to about 1/4 inch...
