    Hello, a professional repairman installed a new sink, and it leaked a lot. So they returned and applied clear Silicone Caulk to the exterior edges. Then it still leaked some, so he again returned and applied a lot more clear Silicone Caulk to the exterior edges and faucet base. Now there is...

    Ancient 1950's laundry sink. These valves are to the point that we have to lightly tap them closed with a hammer to keep them from dripping. My question is, are there serviceable parts in the valve body or do we have to buy a whole new faucet assembly? Thanks in advance for your advice!

    Hey all, So I am a complete n00b at home reno, and I am trying to install a new vanity in my newly bought house -- circa 1986. It is a fixer upper, so the bathroom is completed gutted. Out of the floor where the vanity/sink should be, there is this aluminum pipe coming from the floor. Pictures...

    Hi I am going to be installing a outdoor sink. Drywells are not allowed. Luckily where I will install it, behind the four foundation concrete wall is my basement laundry room where also my kitchen drainage slopes before going into main drain. At first glance seems pretty easy. I figured I'd run...

    hi all, Changing countertops, keeping drop-in sink; we're looking at oiled wood because it's pretty and we'd like to be able to cut on it directly. The problem is how to do the sink sealant. I've seen so many competing answers on this ranging from not possible to no problem, so I wanted to see...

    Hello again, I am now trying to change the cartridges on my Pfister, two handle sink that has no bolts holding the handles on, nor is there any set screws. I am assuming the escutcheon unscrews but it just keeps on turning. Do I need to tighten the nut under the sink because the thing is just...

    Any issues with the attached diagram? Code is a toilet must be vented within 6’ (3” drain). Note the 2” wet drain from the sink. Do I need to add another vent? If so, is that an appropriate way to do so?

    Hi Everyone, I just moved into my new house and the basement has this setup where I believe there was a wet bar previously. I don’t know the first thing about plumbing but I would like to bring the wet bar back. What do I need to complete this project and how do I tell that all of this existing...

    Can I wrap the sink in something and use it as the form or do I need to use foam? It's a farmhouse sink, it will sit under the counter. It would be ideal for the concrete to have the same shape as the sink.

    I had a leak under my kitchen sink while I was gone for several months. There was water under my kitchen sink. The particle board (that is horizontal) inside the cabinet doors got wet for a long period of time. There was a drip that made a puddle accumulate and sit on the particle board...

    Hello, I can not get the cover off of the old the cartridge. It doesn't pop off or seem to unscrew. There are no little screws holding it in place. Not sure how to replace the cartridge if the top cover doesn't come off. Thank you for helping!

    I am looking to pull out the cabinets in my bathroom and put something like much smaller to free up some space however the plumbing is problematic. Everything that I have looked at would require either having a bathroom vanity sink off-center to the right and/or cutting into the drawers to...

    Hi, I have a laundry sink in the garage with a faucet that is dripping steadily. The handles screw into a separate spout. Does anyone know where I can find the handles?

    I have a Moen pulldown faucet and recently replaced my sink. Previously I had no issues with the faucet not retracting, however, now it will only retract all the way if the water is turned off. Otherwise it is stuck wherever I have pulled it out to. I Have moved the weight all over the hose...

    Anyone had this happen? Attempting to unclog my bathroom sink drain by removing trap. In doing so, the brittle horizontal ABS pipe connecting the trap to the sanitary tee in the drainline broke off. Options that I can foresee - cut out the tee and re-plumb one back in - try to save the...

    Hi everyone: I'm not totally new to plumbing, I've done a few small, simple repairs, but nothing complicated. My bathroom sink used to drain very quickly. I replaced the p-trap, as it was very rusty. IIRC, there was no change in functioning after I replaced the p-trap. BTW, this is 1 1/4"...

    Hi Everyone - I'm going to be installing a small drop-in sink on a bar top and I'm trying to figure out the positioning before I do any cutting. I do not have a lot of room to play with, and I was unable to find an all-in-one sink w/faucet holes that I liked - so I decided to purchase...

    I'm trying to identify a porcelain pedestal sink I bought a year ago from a 2nd hand outlet in Pennsylvania. It's really nice but I lost a metal support piece. I hope by ID'ing the sink I can get a replacement part. I've been back to that store but in classic Northeast PA fashion they denied...

    We have a 1920's home and are in the process of remodeling our bathroom. The original pedestal sink is in basement and IS NOT mounted to wall. With 4-5 people using the sink, we have had NO PROBLEMS with the sink tilting, falling, or leaking or anything. We have new pedestal sinks and would...

    I am planning on installing a sink in my basement. As I did some research for the proper layout of a trap arm, I came across the attached picture that is similar to my configuration. From what I have read, this would not provide adequate venting to the sink P-trap. Is that correct that the trap...
