Does your faucet have a lifetime guarantee?

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

I see many inquiries and discussions, on the many forums I follow, about leaking faucets. As you read these discussions you begin to see that there is not always one simple answer as to why a faucet leaks. 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. With today’s complicated faucet systems it can be a buildup of sand stuck in a valve or too much water pressure over a long term which can cause that valve to fail....

Hard water and one solution

Posted 07-15-2009 at 09:26 AM by faucetman886

With the popularity of my 3 blogs on “What’s That Smell?” one of the issues has been what to do about hard water situations. This is a subject that , I personally, have never had to deal with and admit that my knowledge is limited. Through my blogging activities I have managed to establish some new friendships with folks in various elements of the home improvement business in which I am not well versed. One of these friendships and cooperative efforts comes from Ian Adams at Crawford Supply. They...

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.

Multople systems failure or Murphy's law at work

Posted 06-22-2009 at 04:45 AM by faucetman886

Well there was a day in my DIY life where I would have attacked the project myself after all it was going to be simple, just replace old sheet vinyl floors in both of my bathrooms with new laminate wood floors. More and more these days I find it difficult to walk, have to use a cane, difficult time getting up and down, have to use one of those electric lift chairs, have to have an ADA height toilet, grab bars in the shower and the list goes on and on. Hell, it’s time to admit that with my infirmities...
