    Outdoor Faucet Leaks

    Well I have two points of shut off. I have a shut off valve directly behind that pipe in my utility room. A few feet below that is the main feed. So it’s just a matter of which knob since it’s all right there, the faucet or or the main.

    Outdoor Faucet Leaks

    My front yard faucet leaks (from the threaded area), by the looks of it I think it might need a new washer or a whole new fitting since this one is original to the house. I have no idea how to go about fixing this because I'm afraid I might do something stupid and make it worse and have to call...

    Weird Toilet Rough

    Don’t have the seat yet! I’m sure it will go over 18” Doesn’t hurt to change the valve either, I had that problem with my hot water heater heater!

    Weird Toilet Rough

    Thanks, but already knew that, which is why I’m wondering if I need a new bowl or a 12” will do.

    Weird Toilet Rough

    Weird Toilet Rough

    Seperate Electrical Problems

    I don't believe power goes to the switch first, I know that the switch is on a circuit with a bunch of other outlets that don't have a problem.

    Seperate Electrical Problems

    Thanks for the help so far folks. The three way switch, I had replaced the switches (both at the same time, and yes they were three way switch replacements). The one switch still didn't register any type of voltage. I'm using a pretty heavy duty multimeter that does a whole bunch of stuff...

    Seperate Electrical Problems

    I have two electrical problems, they are separate and don't run on the same circuit. The first, and I think is the easiest, is my outdoor porch light. It's controlled by a switch inside. The light no longer turns on, and yes it's not the bulb. I took the switch out and replaced it but...
