    Cast iron question for powder room

    So I’m remodeling my powder room( my house was built in the 40’s) and the subfloor was bad by the toilet and the flange was cracked. I tore out the floor and was going to use an expandable flange but I’m just not sure how serviceable the cast iron is. I was going to cut it right past the elbow...

    Do I need to return my brand new toilet?

    Hi all, I bought a new DeerValley DV-1F52807 compact toilet online for my remodeled powder room. We were really excited about saving space, but I noticed something weird when I was inspecting it. All the porcelain and everything looks like it's in good shape, except for a hole in the web...

    John Douglas Royal toilet

    John Douglas, a 1905 Royal Toilet. At least that's what it says on the rim of the bowl. Some people claim that the slang name “John” for the toilet, came from the John Douglas Company of Cincinnati putting his name on the toilet in America. There were actually a few manufacturers with John in...

    Snaking with back to back toilets, be careful people!

    Snaking with back to back toilets, be careful people! Sometimes the fitting between the two bowls allows the snake to skip across the fitting, and come up the other side. Here is an example of that. This can also happen with back to back sinks or lavs, though not as serious as something...

    Minimum distance between two 90s

    Is there a minimum distance between two 90s on a toilet line? The current toilet is setup 12" from either wall, which I don't think was right even in 1950 when it was built. 4" cast iron dropping 12" into a 90 right into the main stack. No vent due to being so close to the main stack...

    Toto CST484CEMFG Maris- can't get more than 2" of water in the bowl

    We just moved into a house with a Toto toilet in the ensuite. On moving in the bowl was FILTHY - once we cleaned it up we realized that it's because the bowl only holds a small amount of water in the very bottom where it drains. To clarify, 3-4 sheets of toilet paper is enough to absorb it...

    Tangshan Huida, Help Me Identify this Fill Valve

    Fill valves are never an issue for me, they are about as easy to replace as anything in a toilet. Even a newbie like me can do it. Fast forward to today when I came across this specific fill valve. I can not identify it, and I cannot replace it. What is it? It says Tangshan Huida Anti Siphon on it

    Fixing improper venting, old house

    Hello, This is an update/new question from my last post. My home has old all copper DWV from 1960 and earlier, with even older cast iron at basement level-down, that I'm replacing with PVC. Plumbing noise isn't an issue; I really don't want to do expensive cast. The current copper has pinholing...
