    Another Question about Bathroom Sink with Overflow

    Made mistake - plumber's putty on ABS tub drain threads - fix advice

    So back in July last year (2022) I installed an American Standard deep soak bath drain. I was in a hurry as we were trying to get walls closed up in the baths.

    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...

    Hello! We bought a flipped house as our first home (yeah we're geniuses) and the tub started peeling pretty quick.

    Repair/Replace old overflow plate in tub?

    This house was built in the 1950s, but the plate has been as pictured since I moved in, so I'm not sure when it was added. As far as I can tell, it's hard to find square overflow plates, so I assume it's old. I'm not sure how to remove this or find a cover. It's caulked and there just a bolt...
