Just because you set your washing machine to hot does not guarantee that you are actually getting hot water into it. I found that it takes about 2 gallons of cold water coming thru my pipes leading from the water heater before it actually felt hot. I have a high-efficiency machine. 2 gallons is more than a load uses in the wash cycle, so hot water would never make it into the machine. What I did is put a high quality brass Y-splitter on the spigot. One hose to the machine, one hose looping around back to the drain. Before I start the machine I turn on the bypass hose until the water feels hot. This way I know hot water is ready to flow into my machine. I fill a watering can with the cold water to water plants, fill the fountain, etc.

I have a water moisture problem in my basement. Looks like the DWV pipe is leaking as well as water outside is running against the foundation causing mositure. How do you repair the DWV pipe
I have to remove sink and vanity. The PVC drain has to be cut because connections are glued. The vanity has to be lifted up over the cut drain to remove. Where is the best place to cut and how do I re-connect so I can reset the vanity /sink?

Hi my brother just purchased a foreclosed home and we started gutting out the bathroom. We were planning on replacing the old copper piping. But few days ago a friend of his bosses came down to look at the house and he reccomended we should tear out the floor below the slab and change that copper pipe. I have no idea about plumbing and i have one plumber coming down tommorow to look at it. I would really want to stay away from tearing out the slab. The house is 50 yrs old, how reliable is copper tubing? Is it worth it for us to go that extreme or should we change the piping in the wall to PEX tubing? When we were tearing out the concrete walls there is alot of rot in the wall as youll be able to tell in the pictures. Thank u for any reccomendations and other solutions.
My toilet lever is hard to push down.
I checked the other toilets and it seems to look the same
