    Furnace replacement

    Take a look at Rheem. And if you want to save a little money chech out Goodman, its built well and has a good warranty. Any system is only as good as the installation.

    Slab floor drain leak

    The red tag said, NO fall on drain line. He said it was about 1/8 inch back the wrong direction. Yes my dirt is a sandy topsoil with no rocks. I live close to the Arkansas River and are surrounded by sod farms and a sand plant, pretty good soil. Thanks for all the help.

    Slab floor drain leak

    No answers on the concrete? I have some extra time. Inspector came out and red tagged it. Plumbers have to return, repair and call an inspection again. Glad I’m replacing my own carpet and tile.

    Delta Shower Faucet

    I have a Delta shower faucet that was installed about 1 yr. ago. It's a single lever with a temp lever in the center. The large handle as well as the small are getting a little stiff to turn. Can someone tell me if the valve needs to be taken apart and lubed or have I got something to tight...

    Furnace quotes-BTU question

    If it was my house and I were to just ballpark it. I would look at something about 92% 80,000 BTU furnace with a 5 ton drive blower, then add a 13 seer 4 ton condensing unit, and use an expansion valve.

    HELP - gas funace will not stay on

    Make sure everything is dried up. Look for a small metal rod that is in the flame on one of the burners. Once located, get some fine sand cloth or paper and clean this rod then retry. Good luck.
