    Hi all! I've installed invisaflow powder coat metal gutter screens around my home in February of 2019. The roof pitch is maybe 4-12 or 5-12. Our basement has a history of water seepage so it's important that the gutters work optimally. Link...

    I have a problem with my tub overflow. The stainless steel cover plate screws that held the overflow cover plate to the bronze overflow pipe have corroded away. With virtually no shank to extract them with locking pliers, it appears galvanic corrosion has frozen the threads. Replacing the...

    I don't remember when this started happening (we have been here 5 years) but we keep having a problem with our washer drain overflowing. We have had professionals come out with a snake 3 times, and done it ourselves a couple of times. Each time it's only a temporary solution which lasts for a...

    I'm dealing with a 20 year old Kohler commode that periodically overflows the rim. The water level in the tank is fine. When I flush it, the flush starts "normally" but after the bowl nearly drains it starts to re-fill (like at the end of a normal flush), then drains again. This happens 3-4...

A few hours later after I went downstairs, I noticed water stains on the ceiling in the guest room. I had a friend come over and cut out the area in the ceiling where the...

    I recently purchased a home that was constructed five years ago. On one of the bathtubs we noticed that some stuff was flaking off from behind the overflow plate and dropping into the tub. It was brown/rust colored and about the consistency of dry plaster. I could break it using my fingers. I...

    Greetings! I have a bathtub/shower drain on the 2nd floor of my house that is clogged (only drain with a problem in the whole house). I have replaced the metal overflow, drain and trap with PVC but still no luck. The remaining cast iron metal pipe is horizontal for about a foot or two, and...

    I have a 140L Copperflow Electric Heat Exchange hot water system, model 2895. It is dated 02/2004. In the last few weeks the 'Overflow' has gradually increased its leaking rate, to near a constant flow. (There is a mains tap before the HPNR valve and HWS so currently I am just turning this...

    Hi All... I just purchased a hydroclean fill valve for my toilet. The critical level line is "required" to be 1" above the top of the overflow tube. Either my tank is short or my tube is high but I am unable to adjust the new fill valve to this height without breaching the top of the tank. Can I...

    I'm replacing my tub and I'm in a really tight alcove (60" x 30" stud to stud -- no wiggle room). The only tub I can find that will fit is a Sterling Performa (60" x 29" -- the nailing flange goes right to the edge of the alcove!). First off, does anyone know of any other manufacturer of...
