  • Posted in thread: How to remove broken and stuck faucet handles? on 08-05-2017 at 05:17 PM
    Yes, the puller should do it. However, the built up corrosion might make it harder to remove
    it. Since you probably don't own a torch, your next best bet is penetrating oil. Saturate the
    top of the ha...

    This system is excellent, self-installed, very affordable and expandable. Check it out

    Flushing a tankless is no big deal. The unit should come with a recirculation valve kit. It
    allows you to isolate the unit from water supply and recirculates the cleaning agent. What
    agent? Plain old ...

  • Posted in thread: Can you glue lay loose vinyl floor planks? on 12-20-2016 at 12:44 PM
    A rough subfloor is not recommended for glue down tiles. You can screw down 1/4" Hardie backer,
    with glue between the existing floor and the Hardie, for a stiffer, smooth finish. The tile
    will adhere ...

    Many faucets with that design have similar construction. The "neck" can be tightened carefully
    with some channel lock pliers. Protect the plumbing with a simple trick .... cut pieces from an
    old hose ...

  • Posted in thread: Which circular saw blade(s), would you recommend? on 12-20-2016 at 12:30 PM
    I use the Diablo for general purposes .... although the 24 tooth version is rough. I prefer
    better finishes on my cuts, so go with more teeth. There is hardly a difference other than
    price with the ot...

    An alternative is Hydrogen Peroxide. Bleach is best for non-porous surfaces. Peroxide is good
    for porous surfaces such as wood. Spray and saturate the areas, then scrub with a scrubbing
    pad. Re-satura...

  • Posted in thread: Toilet Closet Flange broken, unstable subfloor on 10-18-2016 at 02:41 PM
    See this problem often. What is below the tile? Wood or a concrete slab. If you are lucky, its
    on a slab and the damage is directly under the footprint of the toilet. Remove the soft
    material and re-f...

    Check your joists for warping. If you see gaps, you can install shims or 2x6 blocks
    perpendicular to the joist. Some people sister a section of 2x6 parallel to the area. Either
    way, the block has to v...
