    not having much luck with slow drip on 3/4 copper/brass compression union

    Although the alignment of the pipes is good, my 3/4 copper + brass compression unions are leaking. A single drip every five minutes or so. Three of them have this issue. There's no visible damage on any of them. I've loosened and retightened the threads on all of them and one eventually...

    What type of faucet do I have?

    Can't find any markings and I need to fix drips. Either by replacing washer, or buying a whole new stem. Thanks in advance

    Need to replace a valve on a short PEX pipe- any hope to DIY?

    Hello - I found an issue with my water intake valve where there is a drip from the valve when the water is on. It drips from the right most side of the valve where there is a horizontal line/cutout. The valve seems to be one solid piece with no removable parts so I think my only fix for this is...

    Flushometer handle drips briefly during flush - what's needed for more than a temporary fix?

    Sequence: Plumber is over for an unrelated problem, and asked to look at the handle. Says "easy fix" and swaps in a new handle. Leak stops for a few months. Then repeat. Curious if there perhaps is a more deeply internal part that could use attention? (Presto Valve, Coyne and Delaney, Brooklyn...

    Vent stack condensation

    I've got a vent stack from a 2nd floor bathroom that goes up a chase and into a finished 3rd floor exterior wall where it then vents out through a vaulted roof. There is a consistent, but infrequent drip from where the vent pipe exits the upper wall into the 2nd floor chase. There is no...

    Tub spout still drips after valve + seat replacement

    An older 3-handle shower of mine developed a problem where even when the faucets are turned off, the spout would still drip a little, and I had to turn the faucets really tight to get the dripping to stop. My wife tells me the problem is mostly with the hot water faucet. I hired a plumber for...

    Drip Irrigation without Pressure Reduction?

    I just had a drip system installed to water 9 large green giants, and 4 fruit trees--all on one zone--and planted pretty much in a line. The drip tubing goes around each plant a few times. I looked in the valve box and don't see any kind of pressure reducing valves. Considering our water...

    Dripping tub spout

    I replaced a broken diverter spout a few weeks ago, and it went great. But two weeks ago—about 3 weeks after the replacement—it started dripping. First, it dripped longer and longer after baths and showers, but that’s increased to a constant, rapid drip, day and night. I’d read it could be...

Starts after hot water has been running a bit, after the waters off the noise begins to taper off as well. You may have noticed but it’s been summer and well...

    Leaking faucet

    I had a faucet that was leaking from the cold water handle when either the hot or cold was on. I changed out both the seats and stems (went to a faucet supply store to get the exact parts) and the handles feel great, but now the faucet is dripping like crazy. I’m worried the faucet itself is...
