    Delta b114900c mixing valve leaking into wall

    Yea that might be what I have to do. I had a delta valve on another faucet that leaked and it had a nut in front of it and a couple turns seated the o rings to stop leaking but I couldn't figure out is this had something like that as well. Whats strange to me is it only leaks with the water on...

    Delta b114900c mixing valve leaking into wall

    Bought a little cabin the previous owner built himself and been fixing stuff he didn't get right. I noticed when my wife showered a drip coming from under the shower. Investigated thinking he didn't get the pex crimped but its actually leaking from the mixing valve. It only leaks when the water...

    Compression shutoff leak, angle on joint, and leaky packing nut

    Yea I didnt have a picture of the valve. The leak appears to be pretty dang slow since yesterday it didn't leak at all and then this morning I saw 2 drops under it. Thought it was good till I woke up for work and did my next morning leak check. I thought about pipe dope on the threads but...

    Compression shutoff leak, angle on joint, and leaky packing nut

    Had some pipes break during the freeze and was lucky enough to only feed some water spigots. Hadn't sweated any copper in years since the last house was converted to PEX. Sweated a shutoff upstream and got the house back on. Finally found all the stuff to fix it and have had a small leak from...

    Water leak inside wall

    Yes it's a tile shower with a tile floor. The leak is inside an exterior wall so I can't see where exactly it's coming from without tearing something down. The pressure gauge I bought was a $10 one from lowes and the pressure dropped slightly every day checking it at the same time. There is a...

    Water leak inside wall

    I'm trying to narrow down where it's coming from. It isn't a major leak I just noticed some dampness on the baseboard and tracked it to behind the shower in the exterior wall. There's a single cold water line behind the shower in the wall that feeds a spigot on the back of the house. I suspect...

    Black residue around water heater roof vent

    Why would it collect on the bottom of the roof? I would think it would collect in the ceiling of the room or around the roof jack outside. I'm not expert though. I would hope they would have checked the flame but since they left the cpvc against the flue pipe I'm not sure they would have. I...

    Black residue around water heater roof vent

    I had all my galvanized pipe replaced earlier this year by a local plumbing company along with my hot water heater. I've been having some ac issues and it looks like when they were working in the breezeway attic they crushed some ductwork. When I was up there I noticed the cpvc was against the...

    Oatey all purpose cement on CPVC

    Hopefully that never happens again.....with the global warming and all it shouldnt. it hasn't in my lifetime but I'm sure it will eventually. The walls are insulated and the pipe is under the insulation and all the siding and plywood so it has a pretty good barrier. Pex is the only pipe i can...

    Oatey all purpose cement on CPVC

    Why the concern? Because of freezing? Well I did a little research and it didn't give me the warm fuzzy feeling I was hoping for but everything said it was alright.... I called oatey and they said that it's fine for cpvc used for hot or cold as long as it's in a residential service. I also...

    Oatey all purpose cement on CPVC

    Yea I agree.... the back wall is closed up already but the front isn't.... maybe I can take some time off and replace it at least and if I can get off tomorrow I can make get the plywood off the back to replace it..... man this sucks.... I try to leave it to the pros but I can't ever get em to...

    Oatey all purpose cement on CPVC

    I had been waiting on a plumber for 2 months to rrplace the old galvanized pipe so the siding guys could get started on my house. I took off work last week and put the CPVC in the exterior walls with the siding removed. I used the Oatey all purpose cement in the red can since I was going to be...

    Valve for PVC to CPVC and under sink shutoff

    Yea the only reason I went with the 1/2 was because the only thing this feeds is the sink and dishwasher and I transitioned from 1 inch to 1/2 right at the fizture. I can swap it to 3/4 but the flexible supply lines are 3/8 so as long as I transition to 1/2 at the fixture it wouldn't be losing...

    Valve for PVC to CPVC and under sink shutoff

    After waiting 2.5 months for a plumber to replace the old galvanized pipes I decided to take some time off work and do it myself. I've don't quite a bit of plumbing before never a repipe though and it's been a while since I've done any though. I just want to make sure what I'm doing is right...
