I think I might just leave the plumber's putty on there because it's completely stopping the slow leaks. As far as I'm concerned I'm done with the piping installation. Now I need to do some serious...

I cut the pipe, put in the new drain along with the snappy trap pipes, and ended up using the long wall tube instead of the pipe with rubber fittings. There was simply not enough room to use the pipe...

You read my mind, lol. That's the exact spot I was looking at earlier. It should go on there snug and shouldn't leak after tightening up the clamps. Thanks for the confirmation!

Cemented???? I had no idea. I had purchased a snappy trap piping kit from eBay. I wonder if there's a way to still put it to use.

Replacing drain, J-trap, etc. I need advice.

I am preparing to replace the drain and piping in this old house but I can't figure out how to unscrew the old piping. Take a look, please.

Any fill valves with high water output?

So, I've been using Fluidmaster and Korky fill valves for a while. They're OK I guess. The tubes don't produce enough water output IMO. It takes a good 3m 30s just to fill up the tanks. I was trying...

Hmm. I was able to get another 3/4 turn out of it with my channellock and it looks as though it worked. That annoying leak has stopped. I always thought that these locking nuts were supposed to be...

I admit I only hand-tightened it until I couldn't turn it any more. I might try to see if I can get another quarter turn out of the locking nut with a channellock. I sure hope it doesn't crack...

Yeah. It seems the Fluidmaster fill valves are more popular than the Korky's. Everywhere I look on YouTube it's a Fluidmaster fill valve. Though I prefer the Korky design.

Yes. It does fit the valve snugly. I made sure of that. I've tightened the nut as much as I could. I made sure it went into the hole snugly. Strange I didn't have this problem with the Fluidmaster...

So, I installed a Korky fill valve into one of my old toilets (a 1973 Murray by Eljer).

Baby frogs getting into door jamb

The level in the tank is about an inch from the top of the overflow tube. That's where it's always been when it was flushing. I guess I'll have to consider taking the tank off then and looking to see...
