SOURCE: The hose connection nipple is smaller than the

No, that would probably leak too. What you need to do, is go to your local hardware store or home center (Plumbing Dept) and purchase a female to male connector. The female end is to connect to the unit's male hose connection and the other (Male) end, needs to be the same size for garden hose connection. Make sure that you use an appropriately sized washer for the Female end.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

Just installed a vessel sink and it leaks between the vessel and under sink.


Use silicone to seal the flange and teflon tape on the threads that the drain flange screws onto. make sure that the sink isn't cracked. make sure that you have a washer under the rubber gasket that seals the bottom of the sink and tighten the nut against the washer snuggly.

1. You can buy a bigger bolt at a hardware store with a nut that fits the bolt and use a washer on both sides of the handle bar. Also, before screwing on the bolt, put teflon tape around the bolt screw where the nut is to go. This should secure the nut from unwinding through use. Make sure the nut is on more than hand tight.
2. If you cannot purchase another bolt, then start with washers and teflon tape. Be sure to tighten the nut more than hand tight using a wrench or pair of pliers.

There should bea rubber gasket/washer that goes between threads on shower arm and inside of shower head. If this is a new shower head I would return it to place of purchace for exchange. If not you should be able to get the waher seperatly. If not you can get a cheap shower head and use the gasket from it. I also would recommend that you use several wraps of teflon pipe joint tape on shower arm and tighten snugly.I hop this helps you. Thank you a have a good year

My brand new 40 gallon water heater is leaking from the top temperature control. it is the first time it has bin filled. i have not had hot water in 3 days. please help.


Shut the water and power off. Connect a garden hose to the drain and open the valve as well as the t&pr valve to allow air flow. Remove the top element and inspect the gasket. It should be round without any wrinkels. Straighten the gasket if nessesary and reinstall the element.

If the water is leaking down from the top of the heater onto the thermostat, use a flashlight to inspect the connections on top of the tank, you may need to remove them and wrap them with teflon tape.

On rare occations, the machine that welds the tanks together will miss a small area. If there is no visable leak comming from any of the tank connections, you will have to tank the water heater back to the store and try another one. this is not what anyone wants to hear, but it does happen from time to time.

You can can the 1-800 number on the tank, but dealing with the store where you purchased the heater will be faster.

Pool skimmer has poor suction and I've adjusted valves in various position and it is not functioning properly?


change the gasket on the pump lid. If this doesnt work seal inlet to pump with silicone as a quick fix - or replumb with teflon tape and teflon sealant. If this does not work you could have debris stuck in your impeller. Also check drain plugs to make sure that they are tight (reseal with teflon tape if necessary.
