    Confounded - Pump Keeps Running At Limit

    I think you hit the nail on the head, Chucky - thank you! I did the same thing a season or two ago. I'll crawl back under there and find the pump info.

    Confounded - Pump Keeps Running At Limit

    Here's a pic of the label. Probably an antiquity, drug from the basement of the builder when I made a well part of the deal...

    Confounded - Pump Keeps Running At Limit

    Thanks, y'all - that worked! Just to close the loop. It is an AOSmith Projet C48K2EC11C3 1HP model. What does it mean that I needed to back the pressure off this season? Is that indicative of a pump losing its gusto or possibly a lower water level in the well? Thanks again!

    Confounded - Pump Keeps Running At Limit

    Thanks guys! It is under the house, so I'll grab the model info next time I crawl under; the depth of piping is around 23 ft. It is climbing to 61-2 per my gauge, which could be off. I think it is within 1-2 psi of the normal shutoff point (was always just above 60, per the gauge). Before I...

    Confounded - Pump Keeps Running At Limit

    I've searched extensively for an answer, but can't seem to find a good match for my issue. Thank you for any suggestions! I have a double-drop jet pump with a 40/60 pressure switch. When I primed it for use this year, it exhibits a strange behavior where it keeps running when it reaches its...

    Multi-washer DWV Questions

    Thanks again! Just wanted to close the loop - I finally got back to this project, picture attached (I added a sink stub through the wall at both ends, as well as a distant end cleanout). I didn't consider the offset of the boxes in the 2x6 wall, but no big deal. Let me know if you see any...

    Adding 2 sinks on 1.5" horizontal run

    Thanks Jeff - It will definitely be very light use. It'll be a few people coming and going for about an hour in the morning, then two people doing general office work for the rest of the day. That said, perhaps I should cut out the section of the stack and drop in a 2inch santee. Even though...

    Adding 2 sinks on 1.5" horizontal run

    Hey all! I need to add 2 sinks (stub out, p-trap, etc) in an office space that I am renting. There is an existing 1.5" pipe off the main stack and heading in the right direction. The crude sketch below generally illustrates my situation. 1) Obviously, venting is going to be a problem. Since...

    Wax Ring Failure?

    Thank you!

    Wax Ring Failure?

    Hey guys - thanks for checking! Reach - you are correct that the flange is below the tile, though just slightly. It has been close to 10 years since the builder installed and, I suspect, didn't do so optimally, as with many things in the house. As for plunger - we didn't keep one in that...

    Wax Ring Failure?

    Hello all, I was chasing down an AC issue at my house today and came upon a new leak. Fortunately, I was just under there recently, so it hasn't been going on for long. I traced to the most likely location (a toilet) and found the following condition of the wax ring/flange. Since I cannot...

    New Mini Split Sizing Questions

    I apologize for the long thread. I feel like heating will be my upper BTU constraint and, because of the super high ceilings, I'm leaning towards a 28k unit with a 18k unit in garage and the option for a 9k in the above room. Does this sound good, or would I be better off running 2 separate 9k...

    New Mini Split Sizing Questions

    Please feel free to ignore my ramblings and look at picture and questions - pretty self explanatory. Good morning! After some kicking and screaming, I have given into my families demands to make the garage a more flexible and usable space for gaming and exercising activities. While I'm very...

    Pressure Test Leak

    Good news - I got back over there and did the repair, as advised by Jeff H - thank you! Knocked out the plumbing rough-in inspection, framing inspection, and went ahead and threw up the insulation, so I can know that inspection out tomorrow. Thanks again for all of your help!

    Pressure Test Leak

    Hey Reach. Yeah, I wasn't thrilled with the configuration of the panel, but wasn't annoyed enough to replace - just re-organized as best I could. The ground and neutral are bonded under the mess on the left - I wish there was a strip on the right too. Probably quality of the image upload, but...

    Pressure Test Leak

    Thanks Jeff - I got pulled out of town for a couple days, but hope to get it knocked out tomorrow. Will let you know how I fare.

    Pressure Test Leak

    Thanks Jeff - I try to be pretty detail oriented and thorough, as, I hope, you can tell from the panel cleanup and water distribution replacement in the same joint (photos attached). I always try to do things right, period. That said, I don't want to overthink this thing.

    Pressure Test Leak

    Sorry - joint was a bad choice of word. I was thinking that I could just cut out a section, leaving around 1/2 inch off of the elbow. Then, I could join the distant end (far from the elbow) with a normal coupling, and use a slip coupling heavily cemented and butted against the elbow and...

    Pressure Test Leak

    Thanks Reach! I see the suspect area that you are referring to. I spent some time up there (in the sweltering heat) and wiped it down, checked and double checked, but will do so one more time, just to be sure. Hopefully that is just a touch of the background insulation doing a photobomb. I've...
