Yes, you can do it that way, the last connectionn would be the sink drain tailpiece going into the piping.

Blocked kitchen drain

Due to pop up style drains they have mechanism in pipes and hair tends to wrap around it and over time it dangles down and slowly builds up blocks it. My tip would be to go underneath and unscrew it from basin and s bend pipe and just remove stuff from that point, just make sure you lay old towel in cabinet to catch all the water from pipe.

I have to tap on pipe to get pump to come on when water is pass float

The first thing I would do is unplug pump and disconnect discharge pipe. Then remove pump from pit and check float switch to see if there is anything catching on it that would stop pump from running. While you have pump out of the pit you can wash it off and spray water around base to clean inlet to impeller, also clean float assembly. Install pump and hook up discharge pipe and plug it in. When you put the pump back in the pit make sure that it is sitting so that the float is free to move. If you don't want to remove and clean pump then make sure that float is free to move where it's at. I hope this helps you. Thanks

Disconnect/reconnect drain part of MOEN (Adler) bathroom faucet CAL84502. I'm changing the entire basin and reinstalling the MOEN faucet system but can't find my original installation instructions.

Should be 3 wing pipe nuts. One at basin base, and one on each end of you elbow. They should all turn counter-clockwise to remove. The one on the basin base likely and commonly has pipe thread tape on it.

Filter rattleing in front compatment

Assuming that by "filter" you mean the bit behind that little door at the bottom on the front of the machine........

The other thing that's in there is the workings of the drain pump. It sounds to me as if something hard has got in there and is stopping the pump from turning properly.

Turn the power off before you start.

Once you've got all the water out, all you'll need to do is to open up, remove the obstruction and (if it's what I expect it is) buy yourself a drink with it. (There is a big round plug behing the little door. Give it a quarter turn and it will pull out. On some machines, you may have to loosen a small locking screw before the front of the plug will turn)

The tricky part of this is getting the water out when the pump isn't working. The best approach is to pull the machine away from the wall. Put a basin on the floor, then remove the drain hose from the standpipe it plugs into and allow the machine to empty by gravity into the basin. When the basin is about half full, lift the hose up to stop the flow and empty the basin before starting again. This way, you can get the majority of the water out of the machine.

There is always going to be a little bit of water left. The safest way to deal with this is to put cloths down to catch what spills, slide a baking tray under the corner of the machine, and crack open the pump/filter cover (closing it again to allow you to empty the baking tray) - repeating until no more water comes out.

An alternative approach to this last bit is to tip the machine backwards, physically remove the drain pump from the machine (while still connected to all the hoses) and then suspend it over the basin while opening it up. If you know what you're doing, this is much quicker and cleaner than the baking tray approach - but you have to be really careful not to get the electrical bits of the pump wet and not to let the machine topple over onto anybody.

The twin tub connected to the washing machine doesn't drain.

The laundry tub does not have adequate drain size to handle discharge from the washing machine. In addition, the kitchen and laundry area piping may not be correctly vented.

Saniflow plus works allright for w.c but will not work for shower

Thanks for the clarification - This rules out power supply to the unit, motors/pump and points more towards why the water would be pumped from the WC flush and not the basins ...

1. The Saniflo range of macerators have a pressure switch that engages when the water pressure inside the unit activates a microswitch that is encased in a waterproof container. It is possible that the water pressure from the shower and basins is not great enough to activate the internal switch.

So, I would propose two checks

a) If the unit previously worked for the shower and basins something has changed and it is most likely to be gunk inside the unit causing the switch to be less sensitive and only activate on the high pressure that the WC would provide. The fix would be to open up the unit and clean it - please let me know if you need info on how to do this

b) If this is a new install and the shower and basins never worked, you should check the fall in the pipework into the Saniflo is sufficient (should be 1 in 70 from memory - full install instructions are available from the Saniflo website)

c) It could be that if the unit has been in for a long time with a large number of operations that the microswitch is starting to fail and is not as sensitive as it once was (quite unlikely) - but always a possibility!

Replacement microswitches are freely available online and you should also be able to get the exact match spares from Saniflo

If this helps please leave feedback - if not please let me know and I'll try and help some more!

Good Luck :)

Water is collecting at the bottom. Where is it

Refrigerators have a defrost water drain that carries water produced during the defrost cycle to the bottom of the refrigerator where it flows into a catch pan. The water is then evaporated by heat from the compressor and refrigerant coils.

Something is likely blocked in your drain system. There is usually a catch basin in the rear of the refrigerator behind the inside lining. From that catch basin, water flows into tubes which usually run down the back of the refrigerator. The drain in the catch basin may be stopped up, or the tube itself could be blocked.

Install bathtub without existing drain

it is generally not allowed under the water regs to discharge waste water into anything other than a drain.I would suggest you install a discharge pump, typically the saniflow type which will allow you to run the waste across the room and discharge the waste into the vanity basin drainage.Should you choose to install this be aware of the waste pipe configurations shown by the instructions

Air in cooling system

You need to remove the upper most heater hose from the heater core and raise the hose up high . Fill the rad until coolant comes out of the heater core pipe. Carefully reattach the heater hose. Fill the rad slowly allowing trapped air to escape.This may take a while. Once the rad is full put a catch basin on the floor under the rad filler neck.Start the car and let it run to operating temperature.Allow the expanding coolant fall into the basin.Once you see circulation in the rad you can slowly top the rad off.Once you do this replace the rad cap and fill the reservoir bottle 3/4 ways to the top. Shut the car off and let it cool off filling the bottle as necessary.It's a lot to do,but it works for me every time :-)
