    Drain WM (w/ air gap) to kitchen sink or tub?

    Greetings, I have two ideas, seeking feedback: IDEA 1: drain WM into sink and monitor with 90 gallons of reserve capacity standing by IDEA 2: drain WM into 84 gallon tub... both ideas would use a mesh over the drain to prevent debris going down the drain. My questions: 1. Will I overflow my...

    New well point struck water...but ZERO gpm

    I am in northern Illinois and wanted to supplement my city water with an irrigation well. I decided to jet in a well point behind my house, since we live in a very marshy area and I know the water table is just a few feet down. I struck water about 6 feet down, and sunk the well point about 12...

    How to remove grouted in shower drain cover

    First-time homeowner here. Our shower drain is clogged probably due to my long hair - also it is broken. We are really struggling to take out the shower drain cover - it almost seems like it is grouted in. Any suggestions on how to remove it?

    Tips for snaking tub that has cable-drive drain?

    I have a tub in a rental unit with a cable-driven drain plug that constantly clogs with hair. I'm wondering what the best way is to get a cable snake in there to clean it out?

    Hi all, This past Summer we purchased our first house, a split-level from the 1960's. With this purchase we had the sewer line inspected by camera and cleaned a couple months after we moved in. Since we've had the house, the basement toilet splashes when upstairs toilet is flushed. These...

    Ooops, there goes my snake

    Happy Holidays! Today I was enjoying a beautiful day golfing and came home to a clogged kitchen sink. I tried to snake (25ft manual) from under the sink, but no luck. No external clean out so went to the roof and sent snake down the air pipe (1 1/2"). Thought it had a stop, but nope, it just...

    Standpipe used for HRV condensate getting clogged

    Hello, I have a standpipe in my basement which has a HRV and 2 minisplits draining condensate water into. So theoretically it should just be basically distilled condensate water going into the standpipe, and just dripping slowly down into it. The condensate tubing lines are only inserted a...

    Shower riser clog caused by brown sediment in water?

    We have a almost total blockage in our shower riser. I noticed that the toilets have a reddish brown sediment in the bottom. I wonder what that is and if it can accumulate over 30 years and cause this blockage. We do have a water softener.

    Wonky toilet issue. 3rd and 2nd floor clogging and slow flushing

    Ok here goes. I have a 3 story home with a bathroom on each floor and all are above each other which I assume that means they are on a shared drain line and vent stack. I'm having a devil of a time figuring out what the real issue is that's troubling the toilets. I keep thinking I have a venting...
