Question about AEG Dishwashers

My house has grey plumbing pipes. I have now suffered failure in an area that did not suffer trama. I understand that this grey, single wall pipe may continue to break down and cause leaks. Should this material be replaced completely?

Hi,
Yes, That is a piping that is not used any more because of the failures...

Why the water pressure in my house is too low and also it takes at least 2 mins to waste water until to start just getting warmer water everywhere in the house???


If you live in an older house without a water softener, the probable cause is a mineral build up inside the pipes restricting flow. Your water heater may be suffering the same fate.

Searching for black water release on 2013 cougar 27rks


That should be easy to locate. Outside, down low. Usually black, 3" diameter. Has a cap over it (or should). The unit will have 2 pipes running into it. One usually 1 1/2" or 2" for the grey water and a bigger 3" for black water. Made out of PVC plumbing pipe, just like in a house.

My water pipes vibrate without any taps on


This is a two parter. Mainly would be to strap the plumbing down where possible. Second is the water main in your area may not be able to handle the demand of the area. So you'r water pressure actually drops when theyone in the immedia area gets ready for work. Simple but not so simple is placing a butterfly or one way valve at the main supply. The will let water into the home but not out so if pressure in the area drops, your's won't. Putting one in can be a pain bepending on your plumbing setup though.

Banging noise when hot water is turned off


plenty of water pipes particularly in older houses where pipes may not be fastened tightly or at all to the frame of the house suffer from what plumbers refer to as waterhammer. This can be fixed by installing a small device inline from your local plumbing shop. It can also often be solved ( I have found) by fastening you water pipes at closer intivals/more securely to your house frame. Hope this helps. Mine stopped doing it once the pipes were locked in place.

There is a knocking sound from inside the faucet and it is leaking under it


when plumbing knocks and shakes the fittings I never seen it being the fauect causeing it. What it sounds more like that you have a loose pipe in the wall. That will bang every time the water goes on and off.

All single handle faucets are quick shut off which does not help to stop the bang. It makes it worst.

Try at first to turn off the water to the house, then open every fauect in the house and on the out side. I know it sound nuts, but this is what you are doing. when a house is bulit they install an AIR CHAMBER this is no more than a section of pipe 12 to 24 inch long with a cap on the end.

This traps air inside, you can compress air but not water so this acts like a shock absorboer that stops water hammer.

Now turn the water back on and then tirn off all the open fauects. If it stil does it you might have to open a wall and strap down the pipe work. also get some flex water supply lines for the lav faucet this will let the pipe move without making any bang soounds

There is loose wall mount tub filler. How can I tight it?


Most tub spout are pretty covers for the generic ugly pipes that deliver the water from the wall water plumbing into the tub area. Speaking for this water pipe it's either going to be copper or galvanized iron pipe. The pipe that you see sticking out of the wall is rather short. It ends just inside the wall usually at a 90 degree elbow which in turn is connected to a pipe and other things inside the wall cavity. If this short pipe stub is loose so you can move it in and out of the wall hole some, the reason is that the plumbing pipes inside the wall are not tied down to the wall studs properly.
If the backside of the wall can be opened by cutting out a section of sheetrock in the same location as where the spout pipe is located, you can expose the inside wall plumbing and tie in the wall pipes securely to the wall framing. Afterwards, you need to seal up the sheetrock hole you created.
In some cases this is not possible. When that is the case, your fix is spotty at best. You can use a caulking that becomes rock hard when cured around the pipe nipple as it comes through the wall hole. Hopefully the hard caulking will provide enough tightness tying the pipe to the wall material to help stop the movement. Install the caulking so it is underneath the pretty tub spout when you reinstall it over the generic pipe. Make sure you do not have this caulking involved with the pretty spout so if you need to remove it again, it won't be locked in by the hardening caulk.

I have the exact same problem, house is only 6 years old, two handel faucet, Ive turned off the cold side to eliminate it, turn on hot and have to run at full blast and it takes a full 10 minutes to get to...


You have a clog in the water line?
Or a faulty check valve or mixing valve?

Add a comment and say how you fixed the problem, or add more information about size of pipes.
It seems like the cold water is getting into the hot water line somehow. There is no other explanation, as much as I can see from 800+ miles away.
If you have crossover on a single-handled faucet where the cartridge is bad, that can cause this problem.
Slab house can have plumbing in attic. It can be a chore to drop poly pipe down into walls, but it can be done with angle drill. Assuming walls are 8 foot high and pipes can be easily dropped to sink level where the sheetrock is removed and new pipes tied into sinks and tubs.
This kind of DIY project would take a couple weeks working a few hours each night when temps cool off, depending on size of house and number of affected faucets.
I live in Houston on a slab and ran my pipes in the attic when I built the house. Of course I worry about broken pipes collapsing the ceiling and filling the house with water, which happened to lots of homes one year when temps dropped to 4 below. I was in the painting business at that time, which was a boon to business for a few weeks.

Upvote the help.
And take advantage of fixya expert assistance live.

Two people can not shower at the same time because of the water temprature fluxuation. How can I remedy this problem


Hello.. The problem you are having is common. there are only two causes. One is that the water pipes in the house are old and partially filled with scale and such. The other, and more common problem is that the house is plumbed entirely with one size of pipe, usually 1/2 inch pipe. Houses that do not have this problem use a larger size pipe to carry the water around the house, say 3/4 inch and then only go down to 1/2 inch when they are about to feed a faucet or a toilet. There is no inexpensive fix to this problem. The only fix is to replumb the main lines in the house with a larger size pipe and then go down to the 1/2 inch size when you are near the faucet or toilet.

IAM TRYING TO REMOVE A RAYBURN 80 FIRE


Assuming you are using natural gas to light the fire in your fireplace, is the pipe black iron gas pipe, regular galvanized pipe, or copper?

Is there a cut-off valve probably located just before the chimney, that is in-line with the pipe?

You do understand there is no fire in the pipe, but gas, right?

Removing natural gas pipes that are not properly isolated from the rest of the gas pipes is not a task for someone with no experience in this area.

Sometimes the gas must be shut off at the main, and then all your pilots will go out inside the house, in your range, hot water heater, etc, assuming they run on natural gas.

The excess gas in the pipe must be bled to the atmosphere if the main must be shut off, and then the proper pressure must be established prior to lighting pilots and/or appliances.

I highly recommend that you call a service man from a gas company to come out and do this for you. He will have the proper equipment and gauges if they are needed.
