  1. If youre going to all that trouble Id go to your favorite box store and pick up a single handle anti scald faucet(moen being my prefered brand) and install it.
  2. Around here thats considered "funneling",A big no go. Anyway I would have installed the cleanout in the 4" instead of the wye.
  3. Floor registers are designed to be regulated,If the buyer thinks theyre too restrictive or not restrictive enough they can always change them later.
  4. If you pull the plastic cap off the threads I think its some kind of expanding plastic plumbing plug.
  5. I was called out to a job south of omaha many years ago where somebody removed the drip leg from a leaking pop off valve and installed a pipe plug in its place. It went through a wall pushing a giant stand up type piano through a bed room wall,Pieces of the piano were stuck in the wall above the head board. Fortunately it happened during the day when nobody was home. Property management company that had their maintenance guy work on the water heater went belly up a couple years later.
  6. To say that I hate scaffolding period is a major understatement,But that clown needs a visit from those guys in "Osha Wisconsin" to say the least.[:-taped]
  7. We blew one up back when I was still teaching many years ago,Cleared the trees in the field straight up around 25' or so.
  8. Size Dimension Ratio,its normally sdr26 or sdr35. Basically its either 26 or 35 times the wall thickness of the pipe,We are only allowed to use it for sewer lines outside of a structure around here anyway.
  9. So,is that a piece of sdr sewer pipe being used for a stack under the pvc or is it just a piece of really green dwv copper?[:-bigeyes
  10. they could have atleast used to fire stop foam! hahaha What a hack.
  11. I agree with that. Id look at the furnace and follow the pipe feeding it combustion air to see where it goes now.
