    Hello, I have regular gas water heater 2 years old. The pressure relief valve is leaking. I opened and closed it several times and it did not stop leak. I then lightly hit it with hammer while valve was open and sediment came out but leak still exists. My question is when I change the valve do...

    Help with leaking Toto Aquia

    My water bill spiked and a dye test came out with color in the bowl of my Toto Aquia (Two Piece Model #CST412MF - Tank #ST412M). It is an older Toto Aquia, installed about 2012. Note: I am not handy. After reading up, I learned that the most likely culprit was the flush valve gasket. I got the...

    Toto drain valve body assembly

    My Toto single piece (bowl and tank are one piece) toilet is failing to hold water in the tank. It seems to be draining into the bowl so there’s no water on the floor. I’ve narrowed it down to a leak at either the flapper or the drain valve body assembly. I replaced the flapper but that made no...

    Navien CH-240 siphon hose leak, gas smell

    Hi everyone, Could a leaking siphon tube also result in gas escaping from a Navien CH-240 boiler? I know - Naviens are fussy. But my CH-240 from back in 2010 has been humming along until just the other day. I found that it has begun leaking from the top of the "siphon hose" where it connects...

    Rheem Tankless Water Heater Leak *UPDATE*

    I have a Rheem CRTGH-95DVLN natural gas tankless water heater. I found a leak on the copper pipe leading into the heat exchanger (unsure if that is the correct terminology) The leak is specifically at the external copper pipe outside the exchanger and what looks to be a temperature sensor. I...

    Leak from swivel 90 in mobile home after shower arm broke

    So my shower arm ended up breaking (gotta love a plastic one) so I’m trying to replace it. I have a new mobile home specific shower arm like what was previously there and I almost have it fixed but the plastic drop ear 90 keeps leaking. Sometimes it’s just a drip, others it may be more of a...

    Bathtub Drainpipe Leak

    I've recently replaced the whole bathtub drainpipe from the overflow to the bathtub drain flange assembly. I used schedule 40 PVC pipe, and all has been well until I found a tiny leak, shown in the images below (I will try to get a video clip uploaded, but my file is too large). I had to cut...

    The clawfoot tub on the second floor is leaking. My daughter was showering upstairs and I saw it was leaking into the first floor. The leak is coming from this connection above the second floor. What’s the best way to connect these two parts? I do have the ability to cut the PVC below, and...

    Low pressure & flow problem

    I've been experiencing low water pressure and flow. I started checking it over the last few weeks. Pressure fluctuates but it usually hovers between 12 and 24 PSI. Flow also fluctuates. The best I've measured is 1.5 GPM, but that's rare. It's been as low as almost 0.5 GPM at times. I let...

    Slow recovering well and a wet yard.

    I just purchased a house about two months ago. So far the plumbing has been a completed disaster and I’ve needed to replace the boiler and the ejector pump already on top of some maintenance on the septic system. My current problem is a mystery for me because I know nothing about wells and I...

    Rheem water heater leaks since Watts pump is installed

    Hello - I installed a Watts Pump on a Rheem 22V50F1 (9 years old) two weeks ago. Since we now had hot water in the cold water line, I experimented with the time settings of the pump. Now I noticed that the water heater is leaking at the bottom. When I switched the Watts pump off, the leaking...

    Clack WS1 slow leak into brine tank

    My Clack WS1 is slowly leaking into the brine tank while in the normal (softening) state. In my attempts to fix this, I have replaced the stack assembly, pistons (amber and black) and (red) injector. I have also checked my drain line by blowing into it. Before I realized that it was a slow leak...

    Toto Aquia II parts for leak

    I have a 2011 Toto Aquia II. It has developed a leak, I believe, at the flush valve gasket. At first I thought it was the connection for the water line to the tank. When the water is off it doesn't seem to leak - or leaks slow enough not to notice. When I turn the water back on before a flush-...

    Water Heater Outlet Nipple - Unsure if leaking

    I'm unsure if there's a drip leak at the water heater outlet to nipple connection of my Bradford White gas water heater. I used 3.5 wraps of Megatape on the threads with a light to moderate amount of Rectorseal 5. It's impossible to see without removing the top cover. I just replaced the...

Didn't seem like water was moving anywhere in the toilet so I turned water off to the toilet and emptied it.... Still hearing that sound! Is it...

    Hello Everyone, First time DIYer, trying to give it a honest go at a self-repair! The shower has been leaking for a little bit with a slow but consistent drip through the tub spout. After some reading and videos online, figured it was probably the cartridge that required a possible...

    Hairline cracks in brand new softener tank

    I bought a whole house carbon filter about 4 years ago and recently I noticed hairline cracks in the neck where the valve screws in and water was slowly leaking out. I contacted the website where I ordered the tank and they had a new one sent out promptly. But I noticed on the new tank there are...

    Sewage Ejector not completely sealed

    Hey all! First post so go easy on me. Just finished roughing in my house. I capped all my lines and went to throw 5 psi of air into the DWV system to check for leaks. Couldn't build any pressure at all so I started looking around. Shot a bunch of soapy water around my sewage ejector basin. It...
