      Howdy, I've been working in the plumbing field for 17 yrs. , I believe most plumber have a little pride in what they do, I know I do. I can't stand char, or burn marks on my wood. I have done the "OH crap dance", one too many times. Several yrs ago, I came up with a nifty device. Got the patent, and soon you'll be able to purchase them thru Ferguson.

      I am redoing my 2nd floor bath that has old copper that I am replacing it with new copper.
      third floor bath directly above has threaded brass pipe that looks in great shape. I do have to disconnect and reconnect supply line Q should I remove old brass pipe? House built in 1925 its the only brass pipe left . I can get to most of the pipe but not the line for the shower with out opening up hallway ceiling.

      Hi HJ

      New member with a question: Am trying to remove toilet bolts from a plastic flange and they won't budge. This flange doesn't have the long slots where you rotate the bolts over to the keyhole slot then remove them. This one has the bolts slid into the sides at 9/3. I've put vice-grips on them and am only able to turn them slightly, and have tapped them with a hammer, but they won't slide out. Am hesitant to start whailing on them with a hammer 'cause I don't want to break the flange and have to rip out a second story subfloor. Any ideas???

      Thanks so much in advance

      hj, if you think the toilet is a junk what would you recomend for a dual flush. Thanks.

      HJ, you posted a message in 2008 about CPVC and recirc lines. You mentioned that you thought it was not recommended by the manufacturer. I to thought it was not recommended but I can no longer find it. Can you help.

      Thanks HJ really do appreciate the response. Will go ahead and replace it with a diverter spout. In terms of the trim do you know if I have to use a set that operates the same as the old ball, or would it be possible to use a lever set i.e 1500-1700? Thanks antone

      Hello, my name is Tony and I noticed that a gentleman had a problem with a Pegasus shower valve that pertained to the balnce spool. Can you tell me where I can purchase the Balance Spool?

      This is from a old post : Flushing will seldom stop the noise because it is often caused by "nodes" that have built up on the center flue pipe. The nodes allow water in, and then the hot flue gases heat it to the point it becomes steam and is forced out of the node where it condenses upon contact with the water and creates a mini-explosion as the excess eneregy is expended <--- I have this problem with my water heater. Do I need to replace it because of this? Thanks Alain M.

      I have a one piece kohler toilet and the seat is loose. When I try to tighten the screw it keeps spining. The same goes for when I try to remove the screw. First what is going on? and since the screws go directly into the toilet how do I get the screws out ? Thanks Steve k.
