    Need help fixing a weak kitchen sink sprayer

    We ended up getting a Moen Sleek 7864 pull down with a matching soap dispenser. Had to cut my losses with the Pegasus/Glacier Bay faucet. Much simpler setup.

    Which brands do you recommend? Delta, Moen, American Standard, or Kohler. How do they stack up as far as quality?

    Need help fixing a weak kitchen sink sprayer

    Well now I got worse issues. The sprayer is leaking causing a mess on the counter top. None of the orings I have fit in it. I’ve just removed the hose from the valve at the spout and capped it with a 1/4” pipe thread cap until I can figure out how to stop it from leaking. I’m afraid, I’m going...

    Need help fixing a weak kitchen sink sprayer

    Okay. So, when we bought the house back in 2009, all the fixtures appear to have been updated to some nice looking brass/chrome stuff throughout. Heavy and seems quality but I've been having issues with them frequently. Problem is, it's hard to identify who makes the stuff. So after some...

    Is a 30 gal ejection pump basin large enough for in-law suite?

    I'm trying to pick a pump package for a basement finishing project. It's going to have a full bath, kitchen, and washing machine. It will just be one person living there. Will a 30 gallon basin be large enough?

    Sewage pump basin size?

    Thanx for your help. I guess it's safe to have a larger pit than to be stuck with a pit that's too small. I can always adjust the float switch and I'm sure I have the 24in diameter of room for the pit. So I guess it will be fine.

    Sewage pump basin size?

    Wow! I was thinking it would be more like 50 gallons. Hope we don't reach China trying to dig a hole big enough for it. Well, it's only 3ft deep, so I guess it's about right. 2ft deep just doesn't seem large enough. By my calculations, I'm coming up with about 60 gallons, but I'm not sure if...

    Sewage pump basin size?

    I just ordered a Zoeller kit from irawoods.com with a 24" x 36" basin. Can someone tell me how many gallons that size relates to? Irawoods sales person didn't seem to know, but we both know that the "18 x 24" is a 30 gal basin. I wanted something a little larger than a 30 gal because this system...

    Rannai pressure release valve leaking

    Thanx for the info. I still haven't measured the pressure in the house yet, but I'm thinking it's the PRV as well. I'll post my findings.

    Rannai pressure release valve leaking

    I've been hearing a hissing noise in my pipes for weeks now and I finally realized it was coming from the tankless water heater. I was out on the porch and I saw water dripping from the unit. When I opened it I heard the hissing noise and saw that the water was coming from the PRV. I pulled on...

    Need suggestions on sewage ejection pump for in-law suite in basement

    Yea, I was looking at that one but, does it matter that the base is some kind of engineered plastic? I was looking for the same deal with a M264. They're all cast iron.

    Need suggestions on sewage ejection pump for in-law suite in basement

    Thanx. I guess I'll be looking at the Zoeller M264. It's cast iron with a .4HP engine. And from what I've been reading, I want the non-automatic with a piggy-pack switch.

    Need suggestions on sewage ejection pump for in-law suite in basement

    I can live with that then. I guess, if I keep the area with the pump separated from the rest of the basement, it won't be such a bad clean-up. I guess I'm going to go with a Zoeller unit, but I'm still not sure which one. The only kits I see are .4hp or so. And I haven't seen one with the alarm...

    Need suggestions on sewage ejection pump for in-law suite in basement

    Thanx for the replies So I guess I'm looking at replacing this thing every 5 years or so, if I'm lucky? So what I'm not understanding is how do I manage this system so I don't have to pull up carpet and sanitize this thing every 5 years when it goes bad? It seems like such a bad idea to go with...

    Need suggestions on sewage ejection pump for in-law suite in basement

    I've been looking for months for information on how to choose the best pump for my application. I'm basically building an apartment for my mother-in-law in our basement with a full bath, kitchen, washer & dryer hookups, and all. We're on septic tank, and the line going out of the basement is...
