    See you later, not goodbye!

    I'm so sorry to hear this. After reading the first paragraph, I got a bit teary eyed. This is where i learned most of my stuff for plumbing. Big hugs to the family.

    Help with leak behind tiled wall

    If I'm not mistaken, I bought it from Delta and the number is RP1745 I did notice that there's some water coming out of the relief hole from the spout when the diverter is activated. I think that has to do with the washer thats inside. I already have it but need to replace it. Don't think that...

    Help with leak behind tiled wall

    So I took off the tub spout to check the O ring from the delta spout adapter and all is okay. I changed out the O ring just in case and took off the tape on the threads to retape them. Checked inside the wall and it seems drier than the desert. I'll take the valve body trim plate soon to take a...

    Help with leak behind tiled wall

    Hmm...good call on this. Both the tub spout and the shower head have one of those 90 degree drop elbows that were soldered on. I'll try the stub out first on the spout. I didn't try that yet but its a good idea. Thanks, I'll report back

    WARNING: Burnham Alpine 105 - Deadly Carbon monoxide danger - defective part

    Sorry to bump this up, but I was able to google this same exact issue and have the same problem. My sensory cap with the wires is totally disintegrated and just hanging there. Not sure what this does but I think it opens up the flue? Anyway, I have to rig something or use hot glue like you did...

    1/4 turn left or 3/4 turn right? Gas shut off valve

    Hey All, Just installed a gas shut off valve but after the stove came in, I realized the valve needs to be turned so the stove can completely be pushed in. I put on the teflon sealant when I screwed it on. I need it to point at 9 o'clock, but its at 12 o'clock now. Do I turn it back just...

    Hey guys, Ok, so I was successful in getting a copper 2"x1-1/2 reducer. Now when I put the 1-1/2 trap adapter to the reducer size, its the same size and it won't fit. Did I buy the wrong piece?
