    Vent section sloped down the wrong way above bathroom

    Gluing plugs in the joist will do absolutely nothing structurally.

    Toto Nexus... water supply lines in the way?

    IMHO, the Nexus are undesirable because they utilize cheap plastic blocks for securing to the floor, AND crappy brass slotted screws to attach the china to the blocks. You would have to invest heavily on replumbing the water supply to boot.

    70 year old faucet handle replacement

    If you don't have a good little old plumbing shop in your area that has specialty adapters (or a really good hardware store), then its going to be difficult. There are aftermarket universal adapters that use screws from the sides and are a complete waste of time and don't last. There are...

    Looking for peace of mind regarding my tankless water heater

    Descaling tankless water heater should be done routinely as it removes mineral build-up in the water pathway.. Most mfrs say yearly, but your local water chemistry can be a factor. We find in our area that every two or three years is adequate.

    DWV Modular System Replacement Idea Stemming From Overflowing Laundry Drain Standpipe

    We put down 6mil visqueen plastic sheet in crawlspace AND I recommend large sheets of appliance pkg corrugated boxboard to make the work easier on the body. 2” ABS should be fine for any drain system. I’ve been plumbing 50 years in earthquake country and never seen damage…but we love the husky...

    Ariel tub floor jets drain water when they are off?

    i will guarantee that the jet tubes don't connect to sewer. If you can't see where, how would a plumber ? There is nothing for a plumber to work on except changing out a pump. Everything else are made and part of the tub maker's side and not typically available except online. Sure we can fix...

    Ariel tub floor jets drain water when they are off?

    to my general vast knowledge I've never seen jetted tub with the jet tubing connected to a drain. So if your tub is draining, I think it is ONLY via the drain itself. Jets and their pumped lines are NEVER connected to the plumbing drains.

    NPE-240A2 won’t exceed 1.4 gpm output

    First year Navien warranty includes labor and any parts for the following 5 years. Confirm flow capacity out of your filter and if still an issue within the unit call an NSS for no labor charge service. I've not ever run into Navien contributing to a flow issue. There is not really any part...

    Smart valve shut-off recommendations

    Best to run new copper with modern shut off and go with major brand like Moen. I was given the sales promo pitch just last Friday by a Moen rep. Lots of limitations but a good company backing it up.

    Are recirculating loops/pumps dangerous for my house?

    Well, we certainly don't like to see short turn copper 90s and such. The primary issue is high velocity pumps installed by idiots who don't know what they are doing. Make sure you have low velocity and you should be good.
Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
