Need Proffessional advice about Tub Chaeck Valve????:)))
Posted by Josh Dye on September 10, 2002 at 04:33:02:

I live in the bottom floor of an apartment building... and when someone runs the washer from the second floor about 2 gallons of wash water rush into my bath tub. The water even comes out of the overflow:) How can i prevent this from happening? Would it be a good idea to use a check valve? What type of check valve would you recommend? Would the Check Valve go in front of or behind the p trap? Would it help to put a larger p-trap in? Do you know of any other methods to fix this problem?:) Thanks so much for the advice, Mr. Love. Thanks and take care:) Joshua
