    Pfister LF-034-4ALS Kitchen faucet leaks

    Hi, I just took my kitchen faucet (Price Pfister LF-034-4ALS) apart because it couldn't be rotated left/right. I cleaned out all the calcium gunk and reassembled it. Now it moves freely but also leaks all over the place. I'm guessing the o-rings need to be replaced, right? Anything else needs...

    Need help to install new shower floor

    Update: I got quotes for a custom shower pan and they're around $1k, not in the budget, unfortunately. The wife wants those sliced pebble tiles and I need to construct a waterproof layer beneath it. Any advice as to what material to use for that layer?

    Need help to install new shower floor

    I think I'll go with a custom-made pan that sits inside the existing pan. It comes with a correct slope and, probably, will outlive us. The problem is, there are so many manufacturers that I don't even know where to start getting price quotes.

    Need help to install new shower floor

    Thanks for the detailed reply. Removing the existing pan is not feasible, the entire shower (cultured marble) sits on top. I did some more research about custom made shower pans. That seems to be the solution. Are there significant downsides to that?

    Need help to install new shower floor

    Hi there.. My wife has "volunteered" me to cover our old shower floor. It's 35 year old cultured marble, totally flat, no slope to the drain and the entire floor tilts slightly to one corner where the water always ends up and the floor looks really crappy. I'm trying to find a not so complicated...

    Water heater stopped working

    OK, thanks. I looked it up at Wikipedia, makes sense. Now I am wondering if that PC board inside is available as a standalone part, might be able to fix it.

    Water heater stopped working

    Hi guys, The local LP vendor has replaced the control unit and everything works fine again. Nosy as I am, I disassembled the old (no spark at all) unit and I am wondering how the LED is flashing without any battery or other power supply?

    Guys, problem is solved. I pulled a new power cable to the well house and everything works now. Thanks for all your input and help. Coming to the rescue as always. Ed

    Well pump does not work

    As I said, it's all buried in concrete. How about if I install a small generator next to the well house to run the well pump (and nothing else)?

    Well pump does not work

    Inspecting the cable sounds good. Except for the fact that the well house is about 150 ft away from the breaker panel, the cable going most of the way underground through concrete!

    Well pump does not work

    OK, I did another round of measurements: The breaker box shows 120V each from white to ground/black to ground, 240V between black and white. In the well house, the disconnected wires coming in from the house show 120V to ground on the white wire and zero to ground on the black wire. Between...

    The breaker is a 2 pole one. Could the breaker be the problem?
