    Can anyone identify this shower cartridge? Looked at all the parts and the cartridge itself. Don't see any sort of name, letter, or number anywhere.

    Hello Everyone, I'm hoping someone can verify how I should remove my hose spigot. When trying to turn off the hose, the handle broke off. I contacted a local plumbing supply and they're recommending that I bring in the old one to determine the length of the pipe necessary. I have a valve...

    Could someone let me know if this is the main water shutoff to my house? I can't seem to figure this out. Thank you!

    Hello! New to the forums and relatively new to homeownership + DIY home improvement. Looking forward to learning new stuff from this community. My 1940s home's wood-burning brick fireplace was replaced (I'd guess 15 yrs ago?) with a gas line and set of fake logs. The gas line runs up from the...

    Hi, I am new to this forum. I'm wondering if anyone has any ideas about fixing my natural gas furnace. I am pretty handy with DIY projects, including electrical issues, so I am attempting to fix it myself. Here's what I see: 1) The low voltage system is supposed to run at 24V AC. It actually...

    I'm working on a Mixet shower valved replacement, and not sure what my next step is. I have a replacement, and am taking out the current one, but not sure I got the whole thing out. Attached are two photos - one with the removed cartridge and the new one next to it. The stop stem on the removed...

    I have a pipe in the basement with a Gate Valve that isolates the sprinkler system. I just closed it for sprinkler system winterization, and noticed that it is not shutting off 100% the water. I looked at my local Home Depot for a replacement, and all I could find is a ball valve with the same...

    Soooo, got this valve stuck on but it's buried somewhere in a half-acre area. I've been looking for it for months to no avail (like Vern looking for his jar of pennies in the movie Stand By Me---I don't know whether to laugh or cry!) I have to shut it off from the PVB all the time and would...

    I have a Carrier (Model 80U-19A) furnace from the mid-1970s that is not working. When the thermostat turns on, normally the flames ignite and a short time later the blower kicks in. However, the flames are not igniting, now. The blower still kicks in after the usual wait period. It is a...

    Hi Everyone, I need some advice on dealing with two problem hose bib valves. Valve 1: This is the one pictured with a handle. It is allowing water to pass. Other than that it does not leak. I replaced the washer but it still runs (about 15% flow when closed). Is just replacing the stem a...

    I'm trying to get updates finished in my bathroom. I'm finding out a lot as I go along. I left the shower trim until last and am having trouble identifying the rough in type. I've attached a picture of it. Any help would be appreciated. Note: the picture appears to be orientated wrong. It...

    This valve leaks. I can't quite figure out how much, but I'm pretty certain it's my culprit. There have been a couple of times I've gone downstairs and water is dripping quite rapidly out of several of the subfloor cuts. Looking up through the holes, there is water apparently coming from the...

    The shower drips unless this valve is shut extra tight. I need to replace the washer, but need to first identify the brand. The home is in a remote location so need to show up with the correct washer -- or at least a kit of washers for that particular brand of valve. The home was built in...

    This is on a water neutralizer tank. I have Gccgled everywhere and can't find one like it. The tank was in the home I bought that was built in the 1960's. I have repaired leaks on the intake side due to copper corrosion, but now the valve is leaking at the control handle. I was wondering...

    I'm assuming this is just an old shutoff valve but I can't find any similar pics on the web. I want to be sure it doesn't have some other purpose that needs a specific replacement. It looks like something you'd find on the beaches of Normandy. It's above the water softener and a pinhole leak...

    Does anyone know if there is a trim that will fit a 12 year old Moen roman Tub valve that was used with a Monticello trim? I would like to replace the polished brass trim with oil rubbed bronze without ripping out the whole tub. It's a two handle 10" spread.

    I have a MOEN faucet on my master bathtub mounted to deck of tub, three posts (Cold, Faucet, Hot). The hot valve now will not close - water streams out at more than a trickle when valve is turned off. (NOT just a drip leak) My questions are: 1) I cannot access the plumbing from deck of tub; I...

    My house is almost 18 years old (including original shower, gas hot water heater, plumbing, etc.). I have been having problems from time to time with the shower in that I can’t get much, if any, cold water from the faucet/shower head. A couple of time I have been able to somewhat remedy the...

    Hi everyone and thanks for looking at my post. This is my first post here and i'm in desperate need of some help. I recently purchased a house that was built in 2007 but it wasn't completely finished downstairs. I have started to finish off one of the rooms, the laundry room, which is the room...
