    Overflow gasket woes

    Not a plumber. These gaskets are typically tapered so check that. A little liquid dish soap may help.

    Were does laundry waste and residual water from hvac go

In the basement the laundry and hvac liquids go straight down into the basement floor. No ejector pump just a...

    Shower Stem Stuck in Valve

    Do you know what make this valve is? That could help. First picture shows what looks like a retaining clip on the bottom. Silver looking. A six point socket maybe an option. I have found knipex waterpump pliers to bite when others tools won't. I would not muscle up until you know the make.

    Tankless water heater- no code, not firing

    If the units are identical you can check resistance on the same parts and compare. Or swap parts like ignition coils, as I have done on cars. I assume you flush/clean them on a regular basis.

    We'd like a cast iron bath tub but our alcove is only 58 in wide.

    Pictures. The two responders have upwards of 100 years of experience. Tub rough openings are pretty well established. Highly unlikely it was a custom fiberglass tub. Cause it would be too expensive. Remodels are invasive. Porta johns. Outdoor showers. Bagged food. Sawzalls are a must along...

    Potential Slab Leak?

    What would the slab leak? Reread your post. Roofs that plane into each other. Dribbles on gutters. Drain lines with some type of clog. Toilet leak. Fish tanks. Bad back flow valve. It goes on.

    Horrific smell Pipe dope?

    Pipe dope on threads there is fine. Plumbing putty between the bottom of the drain and sink. This sounds like a chemistry problem. Out of the ordinary things going down the drain maybe.

    Leaking sink drain

    I followed your picture link. Probably got violated. Based on what I could see I would take a couple of wrenches and see if I could get the elbow off the drain pipe. Then measure the drain pipe and go to a reputable plumbing shop, picture to hand along with said elbow and get an appropriate trap...

    Water draining through vent resulting in leak

    I'll add in my case the leak was condensation, wintertime. They used a hub to hub coupler when they needed PVC to copper.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
