Hose burst under stink


It is highly unlikely that the faucet failed; it's far more likely the feed tube between the water pipe and the faucet burst. If your faucets were installed 5 years ago, it's likely that they were installed with flexible feed tubes. Reach up under the faucet and unscrew the feed tube, then unscrew the feed tube from the cutoff valve on the water pipe. Take the burst tube to Home Depot and get a new one - it should cost $10 or so. (I would also recommend picking up a small tube of thread seal - it'll look like a travel tube of toothpaste and cost about $3.) Lightly coat the threads of the faucet connection with thread seal and screw the feed pipe onto the faucet as tight as you can with your hand. Do the same at the cutoff valve end with a wrench but do not over tighten. Once both ends are firmly connected, turn the cutoff valve on and check for leaks. If you find any, try to tighten the connections a bit. If you're uncomfortable with any of this, I'm sure there's a DIYer like me in your neighborhood who'd be glad to help out. It's easy and it's quick once you've done it a couple times. Good luck!

Water meter keeps running. When I turn off the water supply to the hot water tank the needle on the water meter stops, does that mean that I have a leak in the hot water pipe coming out of tge tank.


Yes you have a leak on hot pipe or TP overflow tube.
Put ear against pipe to listen for sound of running water.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-electric-problems-with-water-heater.html#listen
If TP valve goes into drain line, check if water is running down TP overflow tube.
Check each faucet for leaks.
If pipes are under slab, put ear against each faucet to determine which faucet is closest to broken pipe.

There is a knocking sound from inside the faucet and it is leaking under it


when plumbing knocks and shakes the fittings I never seen it being the fauect causeing it. What it sounds more like that you have a loose pipe in the wall. That will bang every time the water goes on and off.

All single handle faucets are quick shut off which does not help to stop the bang. It makes it worst.

Try at first to turn off the water to the house, then open every fauect in the house and on the out side. I know it sound nuts, but this is what you are doing. when a house is bulit they install an AIR CHAMBER this is no more than a section of pipe 12 to 24 inch long with a cap on the end.

This traps air inside, you can compress air but not water so this acts like a shock absorboer that stops water hammer.

Now turn the water back on and then tirn off all the open fauects. If it stil does it you might have to open a wall and strap down the pipe work. also get some flex water supply lines for the lav faucet this will let the pipe move without making any bang soounds

Turned off the hot water to fix a leaking tap. now the tap has no hot or cold water and the hot water tank valve is leaking?


It sounds like two problems.
Problem 1) Clog inside faucet or clog inside pipes at faucet
Remove supply tubes leading to faucet and see if problem is inside pipes or inside faucet.
My bet is clog inside faucet.

If you have galvanized pipe that meets copper pipe, this can be trouble spot.

Problem 2) Water heater leak ... you say tank valve is leaking? Is that cold-water shut-off valve? Or tank drain valve? Or TP valve?

If cold water shut-off is leaking, then replace shut off.

If tank drain valve is leaking, then check if plastic valve is cracked. If drain valve is cracked, then replace with a brass valve from Home Depot. If plastic valve breaks off, then use hammer and screwdriver to gently chip out the broken plastic valve. New valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe. If valve is just dripping, then put garden-hose cap over end of valve and screw down tight.

If TP valve is leaking, then replace with same temperature and pressure rating.
New TP valve threads need teflon tape to seal pipe.

Problem 3) If pressure is low all over house:
Buy pressure gauge at hardware store that screws onto hose connection.

Test pressure on outdoor spigot.
Open faucet and check if pressure drops. This says if problem is inside pipes that enter house.

Test pressure on water heater drain valve.
This says if pressure problem is before -or- after water heater.

If problem is before the water heater, then shut-off valve located on cold water line is suspect.
If problem is after water heater, it could be in hot water outflow pipe on top of water heater, or a nearby elbow.

Remove hot water line leading from water heater and check pressure. This says if problem is where hot water leaves tank.
Read articles above about clogs inside water lines.

Trying to install new flexhose to water pipe-told to use o-rings-not making a seal-keeps leaking- water pipe is metal and hose end is metal


THE FLEX HOSES HAVE SEALS BUILT IN NO EXTRA SEALS ARE NEEDED. ON THE BOTTOM OF YOUR PIPE WHAT TYPE OF THREADS ARE THERE / USUALLY THESE ARE 1/2 INCH MALE PIPE THREAD AND WHERE IT CONECTS TO THE FEED VALVE IS 1/4 INCH OR 3/8 INCH COMPRESSION FITTING, IF YOU ARE USE FLEX HOSES GET THE STAINLESS BRAIDED HOSES THEY HAVE LESS OF A CHANCE OF BLOWING APART AND FLOODING YOUR HOME. HOPE THIS HELPS WITH THE INFO I'VE GOTTEN

Broken Nutone central vacuum unit


most of those systems are plumbed with PVC, but some do use flex throughout the home...
If yours is PVC, visit your nutone dealer and get a new outlet/elbow.
Trim the old elbow off with a drywall saw or other small saw (if you have a sawsall, that is fine) and glue the new one in
if it is flex tubing, it's easier; the elbow threads on. just be sure to hold the tubing so it doesn't drop down,

Installation of shut off valves


First shut off the main water supply. This is likely located close to your water meter where the main water supply enters your house. After shutting the water off, open a faucet on the lower level and let the water lines drain. Disconnect the water supply line running to the base of the fixture you will be working on. On some, this will just be a screw on connection, and on others it may be a soldered pipe. If it's soldered, use a hacksaw (or better yet, a pipe cutter) to cut the pipe in two places, about 2" down from the base of the fixture and also 6" to 10" further down the pipe. Use the reamer on the pipe cutter to remove any burrs on the copper pipes, and then clean them (with a piece of sandpaper or emery cloth) until they shine. Slide the compression nut from the shut off valve onto the pipe with the threads facing the open end. Then slide on the compression ring. Wrap the pipe with Teflon tape or spread plumbing joint compound on the end of the pipe, and then push the shutoff onto the end of the pipe. Slide the compression nut and ring up to the shut off valve and hand tighten the nut. Attach the compression fitting of the flexible supply tube to the other side of the shut off valve and hand tighten it as well. Attach the compression fitting on the supply tube to the base of the faucet and hand tighten it. Once all your compression fittings are attached and hand tightened, use an adjustable wrench to tighten them all firmly. Be careful you don't over tighten as this can bend the soft copper pipe out of round or damage a compression fitting. Turn the water back on and check for leaks. (Don't forget to open the shut off valve when you turn on the faucet.)
