    Help! Pipe problem - tub to shower conversion

    Had to pull the tub out. It was the original 1970s tub and it had many cracks, it was squishy when you stepped on it. When I pulled it out I found that 1. The drain was not connected, so all the water was just dumping under the tub and into the hole in the ground. 2. The main drain pipe was...

    Cast iron pipe to pvc - connection questions

    Hey all, My kitchen sink no longer drains at all which upon closer investigation looks like it's a cast iron pipe that I believe is just blocked or rusted shut now.

    Easy Answer: Water Flow?

    I want water to flow in two different directions, all from one source, kind of like a T-type ball valve. However, I don't want to spend excess money on T-type ball valves that have the ability to alter water flow by the handle. Instead, what I would like specifically is a pipe/tube fitting that...

    How Well Do Water Chillers Work?

    I live in an old apartment building built in the 1920s. I have an issue where my cold tap water takes 5-10 minutes to get cold. I'm thinking this might be due to the fact that the hot and cold water pipes are uninsulated and/or they're too close together. I don't think my building staff is going...

    Old home, old plumbing

    I live in a very old farm house, built in the 1800's dirt floors in the basement. The plumbing is very old, so old if one person has a faucet running, pressure everywhere else drops. If you have the washer on(which trumps all other water) the shower trickles out, along with every other faucet...

    Issue with hot water abruptly shutting off!

    Hi fellow Plumbers. I ran across an issue today that I am at a loss of words for. The issue is that half of the house has low hot water pressure and the other half is fine. This is also poly pipe. When I turn on the hot water on the left side of the house (ie. kitchen sink, bathroom faucet...

    Hi there! I'm having a strange issue with my copper water piping in our cellar. We are on a well, so the water comes in and is split, with one side going to our filtration/softening system for inside water and the other side going to the outside faucet and irrigation system. The side going...

    Water Pipes Howling/Whining

    The other night my girlfriend and I were sleeping in bed when at around 5am we heard some whining. We thought it was our dog, but when we checked, he was asleep. The noise continued and after some investigation, we concluded it was our water pipes. We could not, and still cannot, find the...
