What state is this? Each code varies slightly within states. More than likely, your inspector is right. There are guidlelines we have to follow as to where and how (toilets especially) tie into the sewer. You may still be able to tie your toilet into this line, but in a different spot. It is much too complex to be able to walk you through the steps. Many inspectors are not very accommodating to a homeowner trying to do their own work. Without visually seeing the entire system, I doubt anyone will be able to help via the internet. Due to the complexity of the plumbing codes, I would highly encourage you to see if a plumber would be kind enough to just look at it for you, and offer some suggestions. I believe what you need can be done, but perhaps just not the way it is done right now.

I have a Ruud air conditioner model #13AJA36A01757. The temperture out of the vents is only 70 degrees while it is running. Outside unit, low side is very cold, and the high side is not hot, not even...


If your vents are in the floor, you need to inspect your return air ductwork, you may have some air leaks pulling hot attic air in thru the vents. If the supply vents are in the floor, the return duct may run through your attic, if the duct work is uninsulated or pulled apart, it will pull hot air thru the return, causing a mixture of cold and hot air, giving you a warm air movement through the ductwork. Many service men will not catch this problem. You need to turn the unit on, go up in the attic and visibly inspect the entire return air. I hope this helps you. mark

Sewer Gass after using Bocsh 300 washer


When you have problems with sewer gas smells around a
fixture, there can be a number of causes.
1. Sewer gas coming back up into the home
a. Blocked vent.
b. No vent.
2. Leaking drains that cause rotting below the floor.
3. Moisture that causes mold buildup.
4. No trap on your sink.
5. One roof vent on septic system.
6. Toilet needs to be reset and calked.

Sewer gas can come back up into your home, when the
trap completely empties after a letting the water out
of a fixture, when the trap dries out, or when it is
sucked out by another fixture flushing. When water
goes into a pipe, it first has to push the air ahead
of it, if there is no place for it to go, it comes up
the trap. This causes a buildup of pressure if there
is no vent.

If there is a vent, the pressure is relieved up to the
roof, carrying with it all of the yucky smells. When
the water runs down the drain, the air behind it has
to be replaced, if its not, the pipes will try to ****
it from some drain...typically the shower drain, but
sometimes the floor drain when its close to a washer.
When vacuum draws air in through the trap on the
laundry tub it also takes the water out of the trap,
leaving an opening where the sewer gasses can come
back up from the septic system .

Think about your pipes as if they are a drinking
straw. When you put a straw into a glass of water,
the water fills the straw. But if you put your thumb
over the end of the straw and pull it out of the
water, the water (or liquid) stays in the straw. This
shows you, air has volume. When you remove your thumb
from the end of the straw, the water flows back into
the glass. This is the principal of a vent.

So if you only have the smell when a fixture is
running, the trap is refilling after the fixture and
blocking the sewer gasses from coming into the home,
but your vent is probably not functioning.
In addition, if you have only one vent up through the
roof on a septic system, you can get sewer gas smells
coming up through your home. As the wind blows
across the roof, it pressurizes the plumbing system.
Since the septic tank is full of water, the wind
cannot go into the septic tank. So it bubbles up through the
traps into the house. Installing a vent on an
opposing roof pitch, helps to relieve the pressure buildup,
since the wind then is only hitting one side of the
roof.

Floor drains are succeptable to this type of pressure.

If your drains are partially clogged it can work
similar to a clogged vent. Since there is no place
for the water to go, it forces the air, which is much
lighter up through traps, bringing sewer gas into the
home.

If your fixture is not set right or is wabbling, the
traps or wax ring that seals it underneith may not be tight.
When this happens, if you empty the fixture, sewer gas
will come under the sink into the room.

Each of these senarios will require a different
solution. The key to solving your problem, is having
the right questions to ask when the plumber comes out
to look at it. The previous information should
provide you with a basis for the questions you need.

Make sure before you call a plumber to check
cleanout covers and pipes to see if they have
openings to the sewer. If you have an opening
without a trap, you will get sewer gasses.

In conclusion, if you don't have a vent inside the
wall which equalizes the air pressure inside the
pipes, if you are on a septic system with only
one roof vent, if the vent is clogged off due to
sludge and soap scum, if you don't have a proper trap
on your sink, or if the drain is clogged, sewer gas can escape
into your home.

First floor of house is cold


The thermostat will turn your furnace on and off to satisfy the temperature setting at the location where the thermostat is located. If you move the thermostat to the first floor and set the thermostat at say seventy, it should keep the furnace on until the temperature near the thermostat hits seventy degrees.
