    Hot Water Heater Mixing Valve or Not

    I'm having my 38 gallon Bradford White HWH replaced Monday (under warranty). I am contemplating having the plumber install a thermostatic mixing valve at that time.

    Exterior mixing valve for washing machine

    Our tap water here seems to be about 50° or so. I want to mix in a small amount of hot water into the Cold for the washing machine cold water inlet, so that the inlet water is tepid rather than super cold. It is intended for a bidet I believe. I have a mixing valve with a built-in one way flow...

    Hot water out on tub replacement

    I am replacing my yellow tub with a white acrylic tub. I turned off the water to our bathrooms 2 days ago to start demo and have turned it back on whenever I'm not working on it. Today I determined I needed to raise the faucet to accommodate the taller tub. Figuring this would be a good...

    Mystery of the Day: Bad Washer or Missing a Part on This Fixture ?

    This the faucet and stem from an 8 inch spread three hole bathroom sink. Problem: When either the hot or cold water handles are turned on, water drips out the bottom of the spout shank (underneath the sink) and very little or no water at all actually comes out the spout itself. As you can see...
