    Pipe from gas boiler making loud noise (link to sound)

    Hi, I have gas baseboard hot water heat with two taco zone valves. One zone in particular makes a loud knocking noise whenever the thermostat calls for heat. The noise is coming from the first part of the zone right where the zone valve is. I've been in the house for one full winter and I've...

    Toto CST776CSG#01 or CST776CEG#01? Any meaningful difference in flush?

    Hi, I have narrowed it down to either of these two models with the help of this forum and @Terry Thank you for the help and input. I know I do not want a taller toilet but I also know I want an elongated bowl so that's I why I have narrowed it down to these two. Now I just have to decide...

    TOTO Drake Dual/Drake II hybrid?

    So, I currently have a Drake Dual-flush and don't really like the low/narrow waterspot because my little one can't yet sit far enough back to hit the target, but I LOVE the 0.8gpf that still handles average solids and paper like a champ. I'm wondering if it's possible to hybridize the Drake II...

    Newly repaired toilet fills inconsistently

    Hi folks. I just replaced the fill valve, overflow and flapper on my toilet and ran into some issues when testing the flush. When flushing the toilet it will usually fill to the fill shutoff level and function normally, stopping the flow of water. But for maybe one in four flushes, the toilet...

    Toilet "gives back" what was flushed several hours before (Kohler 2-pc)

    Kohler 2-pc toilet was installed 20 years ago in a MIL unit over my garage and worked fine. Now I'm using that area as a home office, so using the toilet from time to time. I will use and flush the toilet, and the next day--there is stuff in the toilet bowl. It's almost like I haven't...

    Speculate on the cause of leak thru ceiling directly below toilet when flushed?

    2nd floor toilet (approx 55 yr since installed, current flushometer probably less than 20 yrs), when flushed water leaks through 1st fl. ceiling at the location below that toilet. Would a professional absolutely need to open up the ceiling from below for a look-see before diagnosing/repairing...

    It takes me 10 to 15 tries to flush my toilet

    It takes me ten or fifteen times to flush my toilet. I don't know why the new toilets are so bad and why can't we go back to five gallon toilets? I try and try, but really? Ten times, fifteen times, why all this craziness about wasting water and water? I miss my old toilets. I miss them so...

    Hydronic Radiant In-floor Heating: Pump & air valve replacement

    In our recently purchased approx 20 yr old house, we have an in-floor radiant heating system, that seems to work quite poorly, as in very slow to heat (like, half a day to get rooms up to temp). I suspect the previous owners either did not use it, or only used it supplementally. (house also has...

    How to replace a concealed flush cistern

    I live an area with very hard water and this has resulted in the flush mechanism in the cistern on one of the toilets in the house to seize up. The actual flush itself has never been a very convincing affair. I am now considering changing the entire cistern and/or flush mechanism. The problem...
