    where do I buy this vent?

    notice the wording in the description of the item: Vent , not intake. If what the OP says he has is truly an intake for furnace make up air, that is the wrong product. It needs to have open, solid venting and not one that opens when air is forced out it, as in the above drier vent.

    AFCI breaker (in Wisconsin) needed for dedicated light circuit?

    After I rewired my entire house, and have most everything on AFCI breakers (lights too) I had one detect a faulty ballast in a bedroom light fixture. It would trip here and there, not often, not too much really at all, just made me wonder why it was the only one that had the issue. (the only...

    Wax versus no-wax rings

    I've used the oatey one on one install where I was replacing a toilet, and it had two stacked wax rings on it, due to the flange being below the finish tile floor. I tried wax, couldn't get a good seal I was comfortable with, the wax shifted, what a mess. The oatey one went on next, and it's...

    Trap/drain on disposer

    Pretty sure the only option for you is to either go without a disposer, or redo the plumbing behind the wall and make the drain line lower to use a disposer. Not a plumber, but have done some extensive remodeling. Someone should chime in soon.

    Washing machine box rough in

    I also have a small laundry area in a kitchen in a rental I rehabbed a few years back. I have the standpipe behind by stacked washer/dryer to the right corner, and the valves off to the right side. Use of a Sioux Chief 'Ox Box' I was able to split the two apart and it works just great.

    Opinions on quick stab connections in can lights

    I used 14 of them in my remodel. They worked good. I would check all premade connections, push the wires into the connector. I had a few that were not pushed in far enough for my liking.

    Schedule 30 for toilet drain?

    " I do not know how you would use it for a complete indoors system" The fittings that I see on what is installed here do not have an adapter. They use sched 30 on two ends and sched 40 on another. like I see a 3x3x2 wye and the 3" portion is sched 30 and the 2" is sched 40. Just for FYI

    Schedule 30 for toilet drain?

    funny, it passed inspection in 2006 when it was built. it is sold at the big box stores locally and the pipe is labeled DWV ASTM-2949 i think EDIT: It's allowed per your .PDF under table 702.3

    Schedule 30 for toilet drain?

    It is legal here in Michigan. Our 2006 home used it along with Sched. 40. Would I change it over if I could? sure. This is made for household use, I have looked it up before. Genova i think is the manufacturer, or at least some of the fittings.

    Noise in shower head

    "You sometimes have to instruct guests on how to activate it, though. " LOL ;) I went to visit my buddy in Kentucky and that's what he had to do, lol. I never saw one like that, but I like it though.
