Question about Garden

I have a sprinkler head that has broken off right at the 90 degree threaded PVC elbow. There is not enough room to cut the elbow out. Is there a way to remove the broken piece of the sprinkler headed that is inside the threaded fitting. It is broken off exactly of the top of the PVC fitting - there is no exposed piece of the sprinkler head to can grab and turn.

Hello,

yes, it is possible but you need to bring out the whole unit out in other to achieve this.

But, there is something I would like to know before I proceed further, have you remove the whole unit from the ground?

Bye for now.

Have 75 gallon gas water heater. Can I run 90 PVC off top power vent without vertical PVC first? Have Richmond unit.


1) I believe you can immediately elbow the PVC pipe.
There is a limit for how many elbows can be used between blower and termination, and limit is determined by diameter of PVC pipe.

2) Copy following link for venting resources and typical Rheem and Richmond power vent manuals, and diameter-elbow pdf from Bradford White.
http://waterheatertimer.org/How-to-troubleshoot-gas-water-heater.html#venting

3) Richmond is Rheem. Product manual will show specifications for venting.
Product warranty is voided if installation does not follow specifications shown in manual.

Saniplus toilet when toilet is flush the masorator tank leaks around the lid, nnot nice seeing \yuck streaks run down


Is not recommended to use 90 degree elbows in the discharge pipe. Is recommended to use 45 degree elbows back to back with a small piece in between or long sweeping elbows. Using hard 90 degree elbows creates resistance in the discharge pipe and does not allow the unit to pump out the waste as efficiently as it should.

Install side vent for GE dryer


Unlike some other dryers that have knockouts on the side and allows the vent to come out the side I don't believe this one does. The air duct has the rear discharge outlet built right into it. Since it sounds like you don't have enough room to put a 90 degree elbow on the back of the machine, which would move the dryer out about 6 in, you might try one of those square duct dryer fittings. See link for example:
http://www.northlineexpress.com/itemdesc.asp?ic=5CO-89638&source=froogle&kw=5CO-89638. If you had to you could put this 90 degrees, and continue it out with retangular metal duct.

Need to reconnect threaded pvc connections in drip system. Had to CUT out the valve, now am stuck with only threaded connections and no room to add a union.


By drip system you mean watering a lawn or garden? If so, you can cut off one of the threaded connections (far enough) back) to leave enough room for another threaded end, and a union.

I want to cut 2 7/8 inch pipe to make a 90 degree elbow, not a corner but a sweeping corner. I know how to cut 2 45's to make a corner but I want the corner rounded.


They make pipe benders for you application. They are quite inexpensive. If you want to do it your self you can. Remember the total number of degrees you want is 90. Each cut is half the angle. Example 45+45=90. 30+30+30=90. and so forth.

I don't know your application but they sell larger radias 90 degree rigid conduit elbows at Home Depot or Lowes.

Hi, We have two Paragon split systems which effectively cool our large home. One system is playing up. It started 3 days ago where there is water dripping from the front of the unit and the green 'run'...


More then likely the blockage is inside the a-coil section. At the drain. To get to it easier remove the pvc drain line. As the drain line comes out of the collection pan it goes into a pvc line the 90 degrees elbow goes to floor. So cut the line right before the elbow and unscrew the drain line from the a-coil. Be sure to have a towel to catch the water that will come out of unit as the blockage will be holding back a lot of water. Now sometimes the line isn't glued and would be able to just pull apart so try that first. Take the line and clean out with high pressure air out side cause it will get messy.

Now to do it like a pro would do it you would have to take the front cover off the a-coil. to gain access to the inside the unit. And remove any build up and blow from inside out.

If I was going to do it I would do both of these as to make sure line is totally clear.

Replace all line and fittings make sure you use teflon tape on the fitting that screws into the a-coil and glue that joint then when it goes to the 90 degree elbow don't have to glue. and if you need anymore help get back with me ok ken

Broken Nutone central vacuum unit


most of those systems are plumbed with PVC, but some do use flex throughout the home...
If yours is PVC, visit your nutone dealer and get a new outlet/elbow.
Trim the old elbow off with a drywall saw or other small saw (if you have a sawsall, that is fine) and glue the new one in
if it is flex tubing, it's easier; the elbow threads on. just be sure to hold the tubing so it doesn't drop down,
