5 Common Hot Water Heater Problems

Posted 09-23-2009 at 04:33 AM by faucetman886

I wrote a blog a few days ago about a problem a family was having with their hot water heater. They would quickly use up a 50 gal tank of hot water then the reset button would go off. I conjectured, at the time, that they had a lower heating element out or if the reset button wasnít tripping then their problem was that their HWH was just too small for their household. After now having received several comments and direct emails requesting further information on similar situations I decided it's...

Replacing the Bathroom Subfloor

Posted 09-03-2009 at 09:06 PM by faucetman886

I see many questions and discussions about replacing toilets and/or the sub floor in bathrooms. Bathroom floors are probably the worst areas in the home for rot potential in the sub floor. BTW for the uninitiated the sub floor is the material, usually plywood, which forms the actual floor of your home if it is constructed with a wooden floor truss system (as opposed to a concrete slab) or the floor that spans the trusses for multiple story homes of wooden construction. The sub floor, in better homes,...
