    Do I need to turn off hot water heater tank?

    Hi I have a large gas water heater/tank - and need to do a very quick (5-10m) repair on a hot water line on the top floor of the house. The water heater does not appear to have a shut off valve on the hot water out of the tank, only on the cold water into the tank. If I turn off the cold...

    Question about Hansgrohe rough out for tub faucet

    Hi All Replacing tub but to save money want to re-use the existing Hansgrohe Axor fittings (fitted on tap deck) - have a question about the rough out. It is a 4 hole fitting - hot/cold/filler and showerhead - I don't really want to use the shower head so want to use it as a three hole unit...

    Supply lines to freestanding tub

    Thanks for the extra info - to make sure I understand you correctly - you connected the miniball valves to the faucet direct, and then the PEX to the valves - with no braided/corrugated flexible lines? If so - interesting - might give that a go! And any particular benefit to copper stubs vs...

    Supply lines to freestanding tub

    Thank you for the info... The freestanding tub has a removable panel on the outer wall - so there is space to access plumbing between the outer and innerwall (the faucets will be fitted on to a tap deck in the tub - once I've drilled the holes in the deck) - so I was thinking the PEX would come...

    Supply lines to freestanding tub

    Hey - PEX newbie so forgive the dumb questions. Existing tub has 1/2 copper teed off a main 3/4 copper supply line. Thinking I will use Sharkbite 1/2 - 3/4 elbow to go from a 1/2 copper to 3/4 PEX (too chickenS=-t to learn solder for this one job) Think the ID of the 3/4 PEX more similar to...

    Wet Vent - Tub and Shower

    Thank you so much Wayne - I am so grateful to have found the right way forward. Appreciate you taking the time. The shower drain (though you can't see in the photo) actually runs beneath the joists - and I just looked and think enough clearance for the 1 1/2" to run to the trap under the joist...

    Wet Vent - Tub and Shower

    Thank you, Wayne, for making that clear....now, the plot thickens! I just got a ladder out and went up on the roof - and I can see there is another vent - this must be a dry vent for the shower - so that explains the 12ft arm. So I'm assuming that's all fine? ie it isn't acting (primarily) as...
