    NPT fitting doesn't quite fit in NPT tap!

    What type of radiators are these and who is the manufacturer? It could be that the manufacturer over tapped the NPT threads.

    Delta R10000 Shower Valve With PEX - best practices

    I read the Aquapex install guide. The minimum bend is 5" c-c. That would leave me with less than 4" for the valve in my 14" stud cavity. But... apparently Uponor has this covered with tub elbows...

    Delta R10000 Shower Valve With PEX - best practices

    Thanks all. My build is shower only. I guess I mixed up the requirements to spout vs. showerhead.

    Delta R10000 Shower Valve With PEX - best practices

    I'm installing a shower valve and diverter. The shower circuit is going to be a home run using PEX. Is there any benefit to use a valve body with 1/2" inlets and then sweat in a couple elbows and PEX adapters? Will the PEX with bends and shower faucet fit within a 14" stud cavity? Also, I think...

    Pipe not fully seated in fitting.

    The pipe and fitting that is in question is the wye and the pipe to the right of it. The pipe into the 45 fit perfectly; I had better leverage to push it in. Would this ever be a problem... either with leaks, or snagging something from the WC, etc? That's what I'm trying to wrap my head around...

    Pipe not fully seated in fitting.

    I'm working on gluing up the drain for the toilet. After I measured everything out and glued it together, I discovered that the length ran about 1/4" longer than measured. I sent my phone into the pipe to have a look at the inside to see what happened. It looks like the pipe is not fully seated...

    Gurgling in one half of kitchen sink

    Is the drain for the right sink lower than the trap weir? That drain needs to be placed a bit higher. The way it is here, it can never fully drain. Edit: Another look, I don't think you can make that work. The drain entering the wall is too high.

    Toilet rough in measurement

    Thanks, I don't have a specific toilet yet but perusing the TOTO site, the spacing is all over the place. I'll stick with 12 and pick one that fits. Tangent thought, I had no idea that you can spend $19k on a toilet; guess I'm not in the that target market.

    Toilet rough in measurement

    Thanks for this. The illustrations look like they assume no baseboard trim. I just want to make sure I don't have to do some wonky trim mods behind the toilet.

    Toilet rough in measurement

    Before I glue this all together... is the 12" rough-in measurement for a toilet from the finished drywall or the baseboard trim? TIA

    Charlotte 3" long 1/4 bend

    I thought maybe it was designed this way for added strength or something along those lines but you're probably right, something to do with manufacturing.

    Charlotte 3" long 1/4 bend

    There seems to be a design consideration built into this bend. Any idea why one side of the 90 is different than the other? Using this below a WC to go to horizontal.
