Will a gray water system work for you?

Posted 09-27-2009 at 05:45 PM by faucetman886

Where does all of that used water go? If you have a septic system this water mixes with your black water (from flushing toilets) and eventually goes into the septic tank and drain fields.

Changing a sink drain

Posted 09-14-2009 at 04:25 AM by faucetman886

I ran across a simple question over the weekend. Simple means I figured I could answer itÖLOL and also thought it was an isolated question until I saw it twice in the same weekend on 2 different forums and no one had answered it. The question was how easy is it to replace the kitchen (or bathroom for that matter) sink drain ring? Thatís the ring you see from the top of the sink that your basket strainer fits into.
