How To Install a New Shower Head, Without Loosing Your Head

Posted 03-16-2009 at 05:58 AM by faucetman886



As many of you that follow my blogs know, I am retired and disabled and have sang the praises of my TOTO ADA height toilet that makes life so much better for an ole guy like me. It seems like such a simple thing yet it does make so much difference on a day to day basis as to the quality of my life which has suffered considerably since becoming ill. In this regard I recently acquired another device that has improved my daily life and comfort, a simple item that most of us probably...

Toilet on the Patio? Now thats convenient!

Posted 03-13-2009 at 07:11 AM by faucetman886

My work is always interesting and I try my best to give good answers and to interject some humor to brighten my day if no one elses. A few months back I wrote a blog about the new toilet arriving and sitting in the garage...what now? Well I guess the guy that posted the question below either left his on the patio instead of in the garage or we all now know what he did with the old one. Believe me folks I'm good but not good enough to make up these questions....it's very real from a DIY forum today:...

Posted 03-06-2009 at 07:21 AM by faucetman886

I think its time to discuss plumbing clogs again because the hot topic on ALL of the DIY discussion forums of late has been clogs. The one that I see more than most is the one that leaves me absolutely incredulous. I am a FIRM believer in DIY forums but for the life of me this one floors me….”HELP!!!! my toilet is over flowing and I don’t know what to do…somebody help me quick!!!!”. Well my friends isn’t the answer pretty obvious? Shut the damn water off, look under the toilet and find the shut...

Who is that knocking on my pipes?

Posted 03-02-2009 at 07:08 AM by faucetman886

Maybe it’s the cold weather or the fact that so many people are out of work and have time on their hands to listen for it but it seems this weeks discussion forums are full of questions about plumbing noises, most specifically water hammer. Water hammer is that thunking, clunking, clanging noise you get when you turn a faucet off or the washing machine switches cycles. Plumbing can make many weird noises which can have many causes and; sometimes, they're not easy to isolate and fix. The following...
