    So I have a 3/4" line coming in from the street, 1/2 tees off to the water heater and the 3/4" cold continues for about 20' teeing of 1/2" to fixtures, the hot is 1/2" for the 20' and also tees off to each fixture. I am redoing a shower that is at the end of the 20' line. The valve I bought...

    Hi, I just got a new Whirlpool refrigerator, and to get water to it, I tapped into the cold water line for my washer, using a self tapping set up. The pressure is very very low....AND now my whirlpool washer won't fill during the rinse cycle. Any thoughts?

    I've discovered diychatroom in the same way I assume most of you did - searched online for an answer to a problem and found great advice here. I've already been steered away from going about my project the original way i intended (water line for a fridge, saddle valve, simple enough ..) But...

    So I need some help with a rookie problem. My house was built in 2005 by KB. I have gone to the big box retailers and they cannot help me. I have attached a pic of the water line valve to connect to my refrigerator. It looks like a 3/8" but I can only turn the line adapter a half a turn and then...

    I was replacing the washer on the valve under the sink and must have left a piece of the old broken washer. It clogged the line, I tried blowing it out from the fridge end to no avail. this is a copper line that goes up into the attic and down the wall behind the fridge. I was thinking of...

    My daughter’s 1925 era home is kind of like the Winchester Mystery House. I am a 63 year old DIYer who inherited my father’s plumbing tools and until a second ago have never heard of a “shark bite” system. Everything under my daughter’s house is galvanized pipe. I began by wanting to clean up...

    hey yall -- I'm hoping someone here can point me in the right direction! We just put in all new cabinets and counter top and I'm on to installing the dishwasher. I got everything hooked up (electrical, drain, water inlet, etc) but there is a very slow leak occurring where the metal elbow...
  12. Electrical
    I am replacing some drywall and want to take the opportunity to move an electrical outlet. It's an easy move but where I'd like to put it has a copper water line running right behind where the box would be -- if I put it there, the pipe will actually rest against the back of the outlet box...

    I did some googling yesterday and couldn't find any information on installing a water line to my new fridge except for using the piercing valve thing or cutting and installing a new valve. I consider myself too much of a novice to go cutting pipes and installing valves the way a real plumber...
  14. Pex

    Plumbing
    I have to replace the main water line from my well to my house. I was thinking about using pex. Later on, (maybe much later), I will be connecting to city water (about 300 feet or so). Can I also use pex? What size would be best for the 30lbs of well water pressure and also the 60lbs (I'm...
