    Replacing Angle Stop

    All of the toilets in my house have PEX stub outs and angle stops like the one pictured. This is a compression fitting- so I should be able to remove the nut and ferrule and not have to cut the pex, correct? Never done this before so looking for any pointers in dealing with this repair.

    How to secure toilet flange into dry pack floor?

    First post! I just redid the bathroom in my 1925 house, and am unsure how to secure my toilet flange. Under the tile is about 3" of dry pack deck mud, then a 4" slab of concrete. The drain is 4" PVC, cut level with the floor. I am worried the dry pack won't hold a tapcon, and I'm concerned a...

    Relatives of mine got the attic converted a few years back, and installed a toilet up there. Some local guy done the plumbing - not sure of his qualifications. The toilet comes from the far side of the attic and the pipes travel across the room - and it was added to the existing stack in the...

    Anything wrong with running a 1/4 bend into a wye?

    If I remember correctly, 45 degrees is considered vertical, so it seems like I should be able to use a 1/4 bend (with a heel to vent) into a wye like this. Does this work for a WC?
