Hello, First you'll have to remove the existing glued trap adapter from the drain pipe, just behind the P-trap. You may have to cut this off with a hand-held hacksaw to keep as much of the drain pipe going into the wall, as possible. You may have to open up the wall to get more access to the drain pipe, if possible. Each installation has it's own issues, depending on where and how it was installed to begin with.

Then you'll have to add a glue to threaded adapter to the drain pipe (at the wall). That will allow you to screw on the waterless brass flange to the PVC pipe (with the new threaded adapter.

I'm not certain as to what the diameter of the drain pipe you've got going into the wall, but you can always get the correct adapter for joining the pipe to the brass flange in your kit.

Here is a link to a brass flange for a waterless urinal that should be similar to what you're using. Basically, you just need to make sure the clearance and measurements of the rough-in meets the specs for the new urinal that you're installing. So double check everything before you glue the threaded adapter on and dry fit the pieces first, so you have the ability to make any changes that might be needed to accomplish your retrofit.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

No hot water coming out from this waterless tank


Humm.....is there ANY water comming out at all???? If so, it sounds like an electrical issue. If not, check fot a blocked water line, or the unit itself may be clogged. If you have hard water, the lines may be full of corrosion.

I drained tank but it still makes rumbling sound


The sediment that can build up in the bottom of a water heater can actually harden the popping sound your hearing is from the water that is trapped under the build up. when your heater fires the water under that build up has no where to go so it turns to steam so the popping sound is that steam bursting through the build up. If flushing it didn't help the only way to stop it would be to get a new heater

NEW WATTER HEATER MAKES A HUMMING /WHISTLING SOUND


Factory-installed heat traps can cause this problem:
http://waterheatertimer.org/Low-hot-water-pressure.html#trap
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html#heat-trap

Remove heat traps, or heat trap inserts, or heat trap nipples.
Make your own heat traps, and save 4-9$ per year, using flex copper connections, or reconnect pipes in heat-trap configuration.
Always insulate pipes.
With electric heater, pipe insulation can run all the way to tank.
With atmospheric-vent gas water heater, the pipe insulation cannot obstruct air intake at draft hood. With power vent gas, the pipe insulation can run all the way to tank.

After plumber flushed out my gas water heater the valve where he connected flush hose leaks. 1st only a few drops, but now a dinner plate size puddle. It never leaked before this. I had the flush done


Put a brass garden hose cap over the dripping drain valve.
Call the plumber.
Absolutely the plumber should take care of this for you since the cap has to be tightened pretty tight.

See illustration:

No water being dispensed from my Insinkerator hot water tap following insallation of new filter


Probably debris from old filter got trapped in the line.
If the insinkerator has aerator, take that off and flush out debris.
Otherwise, the line will have to be taken apart and blown out.

Rheem residential electric water heaters appear on following page:
http://www.rheem.com/products/tank_water_heaters/electric_water_heaters/

New water heaters are made with heat trap nipples pre-installed so the product meets industry energy standards.
Sample Rheem manual says: 'All models equipped with heat traps.'
