    I have a Bradford-White 50 gallon running on propane. It's 12 years old and still going strong
    (fingers crossed) after 12 years in a very hard water area.It's what I guess you are calling
    the power ve...

  • Posted in thread: Sharkbite vs Crimp? on 12-17-2015 at 01:49 PM
    I bought a house with PEX 9 years ago, and I've been doing DIY plumbing using John Guest (or
    Lowes equivalent) type press on fittings. The Shark Bite brand is a more recent addition to
    their offerings...

    The girl on the front page sure looks happy. I find most toilets too low, especially modern
    ones.And the water level is too close to the seat, if you get my drift.Edit: OK, I wasn't gonna
    do it, but I...

    I agree with phish, nobody wants to open a c.o. When your drain is packed with water gunk and
    sludge. A c.o is fine there but I'd put one right after your t wye where the drain goes
    vertical (fixture ...

    OK, I see what your saying. I will make the switch. Then there won't be any low pressure dead
    spots in the direction of flow. The downside is the cleanout will be 90 degrees from the
    direction I'll pr...

    I see your point about the wye (using it assbackwards). Wondering what I should have done
    different? I thought I was being clever putting the cleanout there.Here's the offending
    connection, shot from ...

    That hot water trick sounds like a good idea. In that picture, I added a wye and put a cleanout
    plug on the straight-away. It's hidden in the pic by the Freon line to the heat pump. I should
    also ment...

  • Posted in thread: Well system help on 05-17-2013 at 08:03 PM
    I use a Russco spin down filter to get most of my sediment and sand. Then a pleated filter
    after that. I'm guessing my pump is sunk too close to the bottom, I have to flush it almost
    daily during the ...

    Well, I finally have an issue I think is worth posting here. My house is 10 years old; I've
    been here 5. Never had a plumbing issue until this week. The kitchen sink wouldn't drain. So I
    pulled the tr...

    Get on with your life. I you can't flush a toilet 5 years from now, worry about it. With that
    slope, I doubt you'll ever know you had a problem.
