WOULD SOFT WATER HAVE A BAD EFFECT ON THIS MODEL AS IT HAS RUSTY BITS


Hot water heaters are a collector of sediment. The proper care includes flushing out the collected debris through the low side drain faucet. The problem is the faucet is not designed correctly to carry out the needed task. If you are handy... turn off the water and gas or electricity to your water heater. Relieve the water pressure through the temperature/pressure relief valve on the side of the water heater tank. Once pressure is relieved close the valve. Determine if you have a 1/2 inch or a 3/4 inch diameter drain valve hole in the side of the tank where the drain valve is located. The drain valve can be removed with channel lock pliers, an 8 or 10 inch adjustable wrench, or a small 8 to 10 inch pipe wrench. Water will leak out the threaded hole while the valve is out. If everything is closed maybe 2 cups of water will leak out of the hot water tank as you check drain valve thread size. DO NOT take your time checking thread size. After you know the pipe thread size go to the hardware store ( Home Depot, Lowe's etc) purchase a short nipple (1 1/2 to 3 inch depending on available space) and a ball valve (brass) due to the water temperature. You will also need a brass adapter for pipe thread to garden hose thread (male both ends). This adapter goes into the ball valve to allow for the connection of a garden hose. Connect the pipe and valve together using the correct pipe thread sealant and install in place of the original plastic drain valve. Install pipe to hose adapter using thread sealant. With the ball valve in place turn the water back on. Gas or electricity back on. Connect a garden hose to the ball valve. Place the other end of the garden hose in a safe area as hot water and debris will be expelled through the hose. With water on, Gas or Electricity on and the relief valve closed actuate the ball valve to the full open position for approximately 3 seconds then close the valve. Repeat the open and close of the ball valve three times. Observe the debris that emptied out of the garden hose. You may be surprised at what you see. If the water runs clear, disconnect the garden hose the task is completed. You can wait until the following year to repeat the process. Your pipe and valve are now a part of the water heater, they may remain in place. Put the hose away.

What diameter is the dryer side service connection? The gas connection on the dryer.


The gas inlet line to this dryer appears to be a male 1/2" "NPT" or "National Pipe Taper" fitting. You will need a 1/2" female NPT x by 1/2" flare fitting to connect a 1/2" flexible stainless steel gas line to the dryer. a 1/2" gas service line is sufficient to provide enough gas to the appliance.

You will need to determine what size the gas line and valve is at the gas valve service connection as well (the line and valve coming out of the wall or floor). They are usually 1/2" npt but can be 3/4" as well and may require a different size pipe and flare fitting.

Some jurisdictions may also re an "excess flow valve" to be installed. The service valve should be within 6 feet of the appliance.

Flush ball sticking dometic toilet


Actually, it's the flush valve that's not closing. The ball operates the valve. In some cases the valve needs to be replaced; in others, the ball has absorbed water and is unable to close the valve completely.

How do i adjust the water level in the toilet tank?


Lift the top lid of the toilet tank. You will ball valve assembly. At the end of the arm of the ball valve there is a nut which if tightened lifts the ball valve. If loosened the ball valve goes down. You can adjust it to suit your requirement.

20 ton jack is new model ge2105a, does not work at all. especially jacking up. it has oil and as far as i can tell no air in the oil.?????


Unscrew the release valve completely and check that the ball is in place. Check that the release valve screws in all the way to seat the ball. Try inspect the ball seat at the bottom of the release valve to see if there is a good solid face for the ball to seat on. (The jack should respond a little, even if there is a slight leak on the release valve). There is another ball valve in the jack. It might be located in the body below the release valve or it might be inside the bottle. (If it is a new jack, surely it should still be under warranty and you can take it back to the dealer?)

The water leak to the bowl. How to fix? Thanks.


This usually indicates one of two things: (1) a poorly seated flush valve ball, which can be easily adjustedor replaced, or (2) a flush handle chain that is too long and is getting caught between the flush valve ball and the seat, which is easily remedied by shortening the chain between the flush handle and the flush ball.

One other possibilty is that the fill valve is not shutting off the bowl wash function. There is a small adjustment screw for regulating the flow.

The flow of water into the bowl does not stop after the toilet is flushed.

Pump won't pick up cleaning fluid thru plastic suction tube.. Troy Built with 5 hp engine


The suction tube connects to a small brass piece that has a ball valve. When pump pushes water down hose, it creates suction on the ball valve. The ball valve has to be the right size. Too large, no suction, too small, no suction. The entire world of electronics is based on similar principle.

When the ball valve wears out, or gets clogged, the pump pressure is not able to lift fluid. Try cleaning valve, but my bet is you need a new part with the ball valve.

Clarify application of straight ball valve 1/4 turn


The ballvalve is normally a compression type fitting and so would not normally require soldering, however you could use a threaded adaptor soldered to the copper supply line and then thread a 1/2" ball valve to that then reduce down to the correct thread to meet the tails from your new tap. Or alternativeley you can insert the valve in the supply line, and extend the pipe to nearer the sink to enable easier connection of the tap.
