What about tankless hot water heaters?

Posted 07-20-2009 at 01:51 PM by faucetman886

But when has my not knowing about something kept me from finding out information and passing it on? Much of the following info comes from the website, http://www.tanklesswaterheaterguide.com/ to whom...

Does your faucet have a lifetime guarantee?

Posted 07-16-2009 at 05:16 AM by faucetman886

In the old days when faucets were simple it was just a bad washer or something that had loosened that could have just been tightened.

Why Do I Need Plumbing Vents?

Posted 06-28-2009 at 05:31 PM by faucetman886

I have seen a lot of activity on the forums and discussion groups of late about plumbing ventilation or “waste stacks” and although I have written on it before it seems that maybe a better explanation is needed to help people understand the need for vents. To start with let me begin by answering the basic question that I answered for a reader on Saturday morning, yes if you install a new sink it must have a vent. Can it be connected to an existing vent stack? Maybe but that really depends on how...
