    Adding standpipe to existing sink

    In my basement, there is an existing wash sink that drains directly into the main drain line via a 1.5" pipe. The washing machine currently drains into the sink but I would like to add a standpipe for it to drain into. First off, is my current setup fine the way it is installed without a vent...

    Bathroom Backdraft

    We have a new home and one bathroom fan in particular has horrible cold backdraft from outside. The damper with the fan is angled at the top and bottom. It's not stuck. I suspect it is leaking in air or worse blowing open from the other side if enough air is hitting the flap. That particular...

    Drain pipe outside of kitchen sink on exterior wall

    Hi, this is my first post, so thanks in advance for any help. I was walking along the outside of the house today, and noticed that there is a hole in the wall leaking water at a pretty constant pace, straight onto one of my bushes. This hole lies directly under the kitchen sink on the interior...
