    How much should I pay for A O Smith ProLine GCR-40 Water Heater replacement

    We don't get into pricing here. Sometimes it's good to get three local quotes. Also with pricing, a lot depends on the area. The cost of living where you're at makes a difference. That does sound good for a gas water heater install though.

    Side sprayer replacement

    Those are quick release fittings. The gray pushes in and releases the grip. I would post a picture of the faucet and we might be able to identify. You will need to stick to the same brand parts for that particular model.

    Shopping for a Polished Chrome Ceiling Shower Arm

    Those are pretty close to being the same, but not. I think you would be fine with either. With so many staying home with Covid the last two years, and fixing up their homes, the manufacturers have been increasing their pricing, It's getting "interesting" out there.

    Need to lower toilet flange Which Reamer is best?

    I prefer the Reed cutter, have used both, and they both work. I would not break up the floor for changing the 14" rough to 12" Also, would have expected the new toilet to sit over the flange. You can dry set first to see if it works with the flange, and if it isn't working with wax...

    Shower Drain Connect To Brass Pipe?

    in the 60's all of the showers were run with 1.5" drains. And that was with 2.5 GPM shower heads. Will it work? Yes. Will it pass a current inspection for a remodel conversion? That's up to your local inspector. The tub works with 1.5", funny isn't it.

    Toilet Choice Overload

    The 776 and the 786 are essentially the same, the difference is the tank style. Quality control on TOTO products has been good, one more reason for the good reviews. I've sold a few thousand over the years and have done many, many installs. They're good. As far as other brands go, many have...

    The lav drain is 1.25" If your p-trap is also 1.25" then that is what you're working with. Often on "new" construction, everything from the wall comes out 1.5", therefore the the comments regarding that.

    An inspector likes an air-gap for the dishwasher drain. A high loop is better than nothing though.

    The reducing slip joint washer fits on the 1.25" tail piece so that the 1.5" extension seals. If it was a 1.5" kitchen or laundry sink drain, then the standard 1.5" slip joint washer.
