    Rebuilt Pump - Still leaking around gasket

    Hey Fellas, I got this old Duro K-255 piston pump. Last night, wasn't holding prime over night, so took it home and rebuilt it. However, there is still like 5 drips per 20 seconds coming out around this gasket, not under pressure. The mating surfaces are a bit pitted, but I was hoping the...

    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...

    Water in yard when pump runs

    I have a well system, metal encased well. Everything works fine, but about 25ft from the well I'm getting standing water on the grass. I'm noticing this when I do laundry when it's drawing more water I'm assuming or when it's backflushing, I have a neutralizer tank. Just from internet searching...

    Hello I’m currently trying to reinstall a Toto CT414 / Aquia I toilet, but can’t figure out how to fix the leak coming from the tank to bowl nuts connection. I have already checked the supply valve and flush 3" : they don’t leak. After two unsuccessful installations, I placed the toilet...

    Dishwasher plumbing - high loop causing occasional leak

    Hello! I have two questions. A.) I had a leak from my dishwasher years ago, but it seemed like a one-time thing and my husband at the time didn't know why it leaked. But this morning I heard a backup sound from the plumbing under my sink and water was in the cabinet under my sink and on the...

    Leaking Grohe Grohtherm 1000 Temperature Control. New shower could be installed within a month. How should I fix this without throwing away $300?

    Hello! This installation is about 20 years old now, and this is the first problem I've had. It leaks whether the shower is running or off. It leaks whether the temperature control knob is turned hot, cold or in between. It has been leaking for 2 weeks. And the leaking is getting a lot worse...

    Navien NPE-240A condensate drain leak

    I bought a home a few months ago that had a Navien tankless water heater installed in 2019. Yesterday I noticed lots of water coming out of the condensate drain. The floor beneath the unit was a little wet too but whatever caused that bit of moisture has seemed to have stopped. But the water...

    Keeney Manufacturing Company 1/4 turn defective leaking ball valve

    I've got a 1/4 turn ball valve that's leaking. Looking at it, the shaft appears to be plastic and its dripping pretty good. Going to the local ACE and checking Lowes online, they sell what looks like the same valve. Is Keeney a generally good brand, or should I hold out for something higher...

    Seepage around PCV coupler through concrete wall

    I have a rain water cistern, and the inlet and overflow pipes (3" PVC) penetrate the wall at the top of the 7' deep cistern. The pipe penetration was done by placing an ordinary 3" nominal PVC coupler in the poured concrete wall when it was poured. The PVC pipes were then passed through the...

    Old tub drain leaking

    We discovered a leak at a joint where the tub drains. House was built in 60s and the drain lines under the slab are cast iron. Not sure what going on where the leak is.. Looks like maybe copper to cast iron. The pipe with the weird flat flange must be part of a trap - holding water. Any...

    Water Softener Pipe Threads: Tapered or Straight?

    I installed a new softener and used 1 inch PEX to run new water lines. All went great, except for two very slow leaks between water softener connecter and the brass female pipe (NPT) to PEX fitting. Leaks about 1 drop every 5 minutes, tightening the fittings has not really changed the rate. The...
