    Hi all I'm looking to turn a half bath and office into a full bathroom. The project is on the second floor of an older house. I'm wondering if there's anyway to re plumb everything from within the new room. I plan to remove the current floor hoping I'll be able to access everything I need but...

The first one is about 380' deep, produces about 18-20 gallons/min and is connected to the house with its own pressure tank. The second one is about 600' deep, produces 24-28 gallons/min and...

    So we have this old galvanized piping that will be replaced but we need to put the on off valve back on in the mean time to allow the rest of the house to have water. It just won’t turn and catch the threads 😡! We even cut the uneven end and it still won’t go. Pictures of the one we can’t get...

    I’m laying vinyl plank in my basement. Pulled up the carpet remnant and found this hiding underneath. Should I just cut a circular hole in the plank and add a drain over to make it flush with the planks? (It sits about flush with the asbestos tiles I’m covering)
