Good info. Thank you.

I called Delta and they're sending me two new rubber gaskets. As far as I can tell, that's the fail point. I don't think the gaskets are making a good seal against the inside...

As far as I can tell, that brass screw doesn't touch the middle part. It just keeps the spring loaded mechanism together. I don't think I can use that screw to change the length of the middle part.

Delta Spring-loaded pop-ups don't hold water

Hello!

About a year ago I installed two Delta Spring-loaded pop-ups. They never held water—there was always a slow leak. But it was slow enough that neither my wife or I were bothered.

Lately,...

Just wanted to respond and say that this leak was from a build up of ice where the water line pours into the ice maker tray. After I cleared the blockage, the leak went away.

Refrigerator water line

Hello all:

My Kitchen Aid water line leaks right where it enters the top of the refrigerator—I assume where the ice maker unit sits on the other side.

The line itself looks like it's in good...

Shut-off valves for sink

Hello all:

I installed shut-off valves onto the hot and cold 1/2" copper lines for my new sink. One of them, the cold, makes a drip—a very tiny drip. We are talking one drip about every three...

Adding shut-off valves

I'd like to add shut-off valves to my hot and cold 1-inch lines, so that I can turn off the water to my new addition without turning off the entire house.

I'm wondering how you can "slip on" a...

That's a great idea. I wondered about something similar because I have a tool that works on the same principal, used to identify CAT-5 cable. I'm going to try your idea and I will let you know if it...

Testing for hot and cold?

As I finish up my shower stall plumbing, I'm looking at the hot and cold pipes that come up from the floor that will become the hot and cold into my shower. How can I be positive that the original...

Delta shower valve question:

Looks like I need to close the bottom (six o'clock) opening of my new shower valve (no tub here) and I'm curious to know the preferred method.

Thanks for your response! I should add that I also have two sconces, one sconce each above the mirror, above each sink. My intention is for the overhead cans to complement these new overhead lights.

I would love to learn more about PEX, but I think that will wait for the next project. I need to connect this shower to the water supply and the plumbing portion of this project is done!

Bathroom recessed lights

Hello all!

I understand that can lights above a shower stall need the protective trim, but what about other can lights in the same room? I would like to add 3 4" HALO cans over a vanity. The...

Crooked 1/2" copper pipe

Found these hot and cold 1/2" copper lines up into a bathroom from the crawlspace below. As you can see, the tubes are not vertical—kinda crooked. What options to I have to get them...

Knee wall strength?

Hello!

I've build these two knee walls for a shower, within a bathroom. Both walls will be clad in backerboard and tile and seamless glass will complete the "wall" up.

I've got a little lateral...

I should add that the plywood looks to be exterior grade and it's 3/4" thick. Tongue-and-groved too.

So, do I have a good strong sub floor?

2. 3/4" exterior...

I should also add that we haven't decided on tile, but I would think we will purchase 12" square ceramic.
