  • Posted in thread: Tank leaks (on to floor) with new flapper--why? on 02-26-2017 at 04:40 PM
    You answered your own question. Most likely you bumped the tank and disturbed the old tank to
    bowl seal or a loose tank bolt.

    Typical friday screw around. UghI did that once. I was pissed at the boss and through a nail
    plate.OOPS.

  • Posted in thread: Hot Water heater BTU on 02-25-2017 at 05:30 PM
    BTU is the energy output of the heater. The more BTU's the more heat it puts out and the faster
    it heats up the water.It's the vent size that will restrict you from a significant increase in
    BTU ratin...

  • Posted in thread: What type of bathroom drain system is this on 02-24-2017 at 05:11 AM
    To be honest, never seen anything like that before. The plumber that put that in was probably
    buried years ago.

    Like matt said. be careful not to break the stem. I have had a few where the stem separates

    NO o-ring or gasket required.If the threads are IP on that fitting, that fitting would be a MIP
    not FIP.You would use a FIP to attach to it

I tried replying to you on the forum, but I am not "permitted" to write a reply. Don't know why since I was able to post in the first place. Just wanted to thank you for your suggestions! Makes perfect sense. I don't know why the plumber who installed the system didn't put in that valve in the first place!

@mjz Inexperience along with the cost of material and labor is why they did not do it.

How do we get this fixed? I am unable to post - I wanted to include a photo of my current installation. It seems it should be easy to "reverse" the shutoff valve with the hose bib. In this way I would be able to isolate the loop, and then run hot water back through the loop out the hose bib and clear any air (if any...).

@Mr_David - I am unable to post in the forum for some reason. I was allowed to do the initial post (thanks for your reply!), but that's it. I want to post a picture so you can see how it looks currently.

I do suspect an air lock, but it's not 100% locked up. Water will flow through the loop, just painfully slow.
