This is the safety check valve. If water is coming out of it then either the water is too high in the tub when it is being used or there is a blockage somewhere in the system making the water go to that valve.

Can you fix a broken pvc pipe

more specific please. so your saying that the actual faucet sticking outta the wall is PVC and not a Brass for plated brass pipe? Also what type of valve do you have. Is it a single knob valve that you rotate to turn on as well as adjust your water temperature, or is there 2 knobs one for hot and one for cold?

A picture would help me answer your question a lot easier

I have a Lasco whirlpool spa SG72ACSK that is new and never used. I would like to add a heater to this unit, is it possible to do so? How?

It is always possible to add a heater to any jetted bathtub at any time.
What you need to find out that is if the tub is plumbed to each jet with rigid PVC pipe or flexible PVC pipe.
If it is plumbed in flex pipe then the Tee heater will be easier to install however if it is plumbed in rigid PVC then I would suggest a inline pressure heater that you will install in the water line any place after the discharge of the pump.
Here is a link to a installation instructions so you can see how all heaters are installed.

Tbx21ji refridgerator has water inside the bottom of fridge. it keeps happening

Mine did the same thing. Pull refrigerator out so that you can access the back. Take off lower dust cover , it's black and has several small screws. Once removed, you can see a pvc pipe running from top to bottom. Remove screw from clamp that holds pvc pipe vertical. Remove pvc pipe from top of refrigerator, then remove the top piece that was attached to pvc pipe. You may need to turn 1/4 turn counter clockwise to remove. Once removed, clean these 2 pieces thoroughly to remove any blockages. Install in reverse order and hopefully this fixes your water problem. This pvc pipe runs to a pan that water pools in and evaporates. If the water can't get here, it has to go somewhere.

A pin hole in pvc pipe under jacuzzi what can i use

Self amalgamating tape wrapped several times around and well over lapped would probably do it. Just to be sure I would secure it in place with one or two 'jubilee' type hose clips (the sort used to secure radiator hoses on cars) would probably make a quick fix.
For a longer term repair you could try using fibreglass car body repair paste (the sort with fibres in it - not the smooth filler paste). However it will not still to pvc very well. The surface needs to be rubbed with a bit of glass paper to roughen it slightly and then degrease by wiping with a cloth moistened with acetone (nail polish remover would do) before fibre-glassing.

I have two bathrooms directly under each other. The hinges on both cabinets (under the sink) are rusted and the pipes going from the wall to under the sink are also rusted. There are NO LEAKS ANYWHERE in...

You can't stop condensation or humidity in the house, especially in the bathrooms. A few choices: replace the hinges, or oil the hinges with WD-40. Install a vent fan (even though you have a window) and replace the pipes with PVC pipes. Metal drain pipes will always rust, because they drain water. Replace all under sink drain pipes with PVC

I have water pooling in the bottom of the freezer compartment. My model is TPX24BPDA

This is most likely the drain hole that is blocked.

Remove the rear cover on the freezer inside to expose the cooling coils.

At the base there will be a channel leading to an outlet pipe.

Use a piece of PVC covered wire to clear the pipe by inserting about 8" into that hole.
Follow it with a squirt of anti-bacterial cleaner to kill off any mould in there.
Replace covers and drawers.

My 1042 Power Humidifier has water under the PVC pipe leading from the unit into the drain. Does that mean the unit itself is leaking water?

Hi, if the unit is leaking and it looks as though it is coming from the PVC pipe, more then likely its leaking at the unit its self where the pipe connects. Water will run down the pipe and drip down line. Dry it off and put your hand around where the PVC pipe screws into unit. Unless the pipe is cracked, this is where the leak is. If the fitting is a male or female threaded PVC fitting and a piece of PVC pipe that goes to the drain, you can repair this very easy. Just cut the pipe near the fitting with a hacksaw. Unscrew the fitting that goes to unit. Go to a hardware store like Home Depot, take the old fitting with you and buy a replacement. Buy a coupling, a small can of clear PVC glue and a small can or tube of pipe dope to put on the fitting threads. Screw the fitting in first and make sure it has pipe dope on it, get it tight with pliers. Take the pipe and coupling and glue it on the pipe. Put glue on the other end and slide it in the fitting that was where it was leaking before. Hold it in place for a few seconds. Once you put the glue on, be ready to put it together as it drys super fast and you cant take it apart once it sets. Very easy to repair and the parts cost pennys. Keep me posted. You can do this and will learn about plumbing! Good Luck.

Unable to put gas in my tank. gas will squirt out

It seems the breather pipe is blocked thus the squirt out of the gas.
This breather pipe should be somwhere around the filler neck, it's like a small by pass.It may need to be unblock.
Hope this helps!
