You need the tool. Personally I don't reuse fittings.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


Can you explain to me how that valve works for the whole house when the line branches off before the valve to the front outside hose? Am I missing something? I don't want to start cutting pipes until I'm sure I'm messing with the right lines. The hot water line that's capped off goes down in the wall into the crawlspace and then goes toward the back of the house (I'm assuming to the sink). Then it goes all over the place. I just need to find where the new tankless unit attaches to that line underneath the house. I hate plumbing. Lol

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


Here's pictures from under the house. First picture shows main line going to to pantry. Second picture shows where that line goes after coming back down the wall (nothing on other side of that support). 3rd picture is where the hot water from the pantry goes to attach to the rest of the plumbing. Thinking I can cut the pipe off at that 3 way splitter and cap it and get rid of all that plumbing in the wall of the pantry for the hot side.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


Also, will the all purpose cememt work for attaching the 3/4 pvc from the well to the 3/4 cpvc plumbing? It says on the can it works for both and no primer is required. Can someone also link me to a good valve example to use as the main shut off under my house?

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


I completed this task today and all is working. Really slow leak on the thread side of the ball valve but I'm pretty sure I just need to get a better wrench so I can tighten it. I left a tiny toy cup under it for a few hours and maybe 2 drops of water had dripped in it.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


Is that ceramic or vinyl? If it is ceramic and in a pantry (not a visible area of the house), go underneath and glue or nail a piece of wood over it to stop anything from falling through. Then fill the hole with grout or vinyl concrete patch, or floor leveling compound.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


It's either linoleum or vinyl. I have a roll of the stuff somewhere that I guess was left over when they put it down before I bought the house. There's another hole the same size with a piece of pvc glued inside of it.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


If the final floor needs to look nice, do as I suggested to fill the holes. Then remove the parts of the flooring with the holes by cutting on the "grout lines". It would probably be best to cut the new flooring while it is directly on top of the damaged flooring. Do this with a very sharp blade. Remove the damaged flooring and get a vinyl adhesive to adhere the replacement piece.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


That's what I was going to try. It doesn't have to look perfect but I plan to sell this house in a few years so it needs to look decent. That corner hole will be tricky since there is a tare in the vinyl in the corner starting at the hole. Also I think the hole crosses over the fake grout line. I'll give it a shot. Worst case I can have someone put down new vinyl just in that pantry.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


Wall is fixed and I have 2 squares of new linoleum cut out to fix the holes in the floor but it's a lot harder to do that with the squares needing to be fixed are in corners and against a wall. I can't figure out how to cut out the partial square the right size.

Is the new linoleum tiles or sheet goods? If sheet goods i would suggest using thin cardboard like posterboard folded and or cut to fit and then using that as a template to cut the linoleum. If tile, post back and i will give you a way to do it easily, but it is far harder to explain than to do, and you will need at least one extra tile.

Re: Want to relocate main water line in pantry


It is sheets. I cut out 2 squares well past the grout lines for each to give some play. I will try the posters board thing.
