    Viessman Vitodens 100 Propane Boiler, exhaust gases smell like propane?

    Why call the propane company & not the boiler company? The smell is only detectable in the exhaust?

    Is it the same deal with the Rheem ET's they sell?

    American Standard Champion 4 is poorly engineered and deceiving on specs

    They are large, but I have one & love it. Specs did not come into play for me though, I had plenty of room to work with. If I bought one based off the specs & it was incorrect I would be peeved too.

    Wax versus no-wax rings

    When I bought my foreclosure there was a smell in the bathroom. Pulled the toilet & it had a "no-wax" ring installed that had somehow begun leaking. Don't know why or how, just stating what I found. I don't know what brand it was only that it was black & a bit more towards a foam than a solid...

    Caulking technique - smooth with wet finger or don't touch?

    Are you caulking all the way around the toilet? I'm not a pro but don't practice this because if there is ever a problem with leaking at the drain site you are not going to know immediately. & if it is sealed tight, you are looking at quite a mess underneath the toilet by the time you find out...

    Excessive TP use

    Upstairs I have an American Standard (Champion 4 series I think) On the box it says it will flush a bucket of golf balls. But if you can clog that thing, I would be amazed. It's just unstoppable.

    Kohler Cimarron - Installing the Tank?!?

    Did you get it at a big box store? Not to start a controversy, or disagree with the people who do this day in & day out, but for what it's worth, I got the same exact toilet from Home Depot & the parts were definitely incorrect. Not only the bolts, but the gasket that seals the tank to the bowl...

    Delta vs. Panasonic bathroom exhaust fans?

    lol, I never thought of that. I usually just sing very loudly while I'm in there, hard core rap music, tends to draw attention away from what I am really doing in there.

    Need new shower, design ideas/questions?

    The shower downstairs is just a 2 piece stall, acrylic or FG type material. However the bottom of the shower is starting to crack. The stall is very tight to begin with, if I drop the soap I have to do an awkward squat move to get it otherwise I hit my head or my butt against the shower stall...

    Delta vs. Panasonic bathroom exhaust fans?

    I also have a panasonic (whatever the top model is) & it is extremely quiet. Install was easy & even being so quiet it moves a ton of air. It's remarkable. In the down stairs I have a Delta & someday I will replace it with the same panasonic unit I have upstairs.

    Viessman Vitodens 100 Propane Boiler, exhaust gases smell like propane?

    As the title's a direct vent style boiler, & is supposed to be extremely efficient. But when outside yesterday putting in new basement windows I noticed the exhaust gases smell like propane. It's give you an idea of "how much" it smells like propane. Is this normal...

    Expansion Tank Questions & Recommendation

    Thanks Bison! I understand the theory now. Any plumbers to answer the other questions I had? I won't mention the name or location of the company, just for my own curiosity I want to know if this is how things are done. I'm guessing they didn't read the installation requirements for the Amtrol &...

    Expansion Tank Questions & Recommendation

    Thanks, in another post I noted that I only live 5 minutes from Nashua, I'm in Pepperell MA. So I need a potable water ET, & to charge it to 53 psi which is the pressure coming in from the street. Is that right?

    Expansion Tank Questions & Recommendation

    I have an Amtrol CH-41 IWH. 41 gallons obviously, top mounted coil. It recently started leaking (a lot) out of the top gasket/plate. It was covered under warrantee but the parts/labor was $95 to come & look at it, for which he was here a half hour. Then $462 to replace it. $50 of that was a fee...

    Rust in water tank

    I know this thread is a year old but I wanted to comment on the part I've qouted. I've cleaned windows professionally for almost 20 years and one of the systems we use for tall buildings is called a water fed pole. It uses completely purified water sent up a pole with a brush to clean the...
