  • Posted in thread: Do valves gravity drain? on 05-05-2014 at 12:58 AM
    The way Ive piped them is to put a ball valve on the outlet piping from the BFP, then a boiler
    drain. In the late fall, I can remove the BFP, shut off the ball valve, hook the compressor up
    to the boi...

    you're not going to gravity drain an irrigation system and get all the water out. Also, I
    wouldnt be comfortable just opening up the checks on my backflow preventer and assuming Ive
    eliminated the fre...

    I agree with phish. Doesnt seem to be much there. In addition, looks low to my eye.

  • Posted in thread: frustrated by UK pipe thread on 02-26-2014 at 02:14 AM
    I had this problem with a UK tub and shower faucet that a friend had purchased on ebay. The
    only thing I could do was to solder the connections. Luckily, the threads were brass and the

    That appears to be a Blazemaster CPVC sprinkler head adapter.Looks to me like you're going to

    metal thre...

    If you're still looking, I'd give these guys a call. They can usually identify and find hard to
    find parts off of a picture. Ask for Eric or Aaron.

    The fact that you were getting alot of air and the wet area near the meter makes me think that
    you have a broken line. I know you said the wet area was before the meter, but that doesnt mean
    that the ...

  • Posted in thread: IS there a glue for ABS cracks? on 12-27-2013 at 12:51 AM
    Agreed. That looks like cast iron and not a minor crack. Either way, the only proper fix is to
    cut it out and replace it.

  • Posted in thread: manabloc help please on 12-27-2013 at 12:48 AM
    try turning it just a 1/4 turn (90 degrees) and see if that doesnt shut it off. Sounds like you
