    Help with understanding report and identify needs

    I am planning a renovation/addition to my house and part of that process will involve the plumbing. For years there has only been a whole house filter and a Whirlpool water softener, which has done fine at keeping stains out of the tub, but it has seen better days. I want to make sure I replace...

    Water Testing - Sealing Toilet Flange in Slab

    Hey y'all. I have a brass toilet flange set into a concrete slab that I need to seal off in order to water test my drain lines. I have a 4" gripper plug in there at the moment, but it looks like the lead(?) lining isn't going to seal to the plug tight enough. What can I do to make this setup...

    Water Testing

    I know there have been a few links to water test companies and the one that is most popular with folks is suspended now due to a merger. Has anyone utilized this one? I know they want to sell you their products but I don't see how that is related as they claim to have an independent lab doing...

    Prepping DWV for Inspection

    We are up for a water test inspection of our addition. Since the entire 180 sq foot addition is a DIY, I want to confirm a few things (after spending hours on this forum!) before we jump into this: All of our underground plumbing is located within our slab foundation. Because of this, no test...
