Re: Dryer's vent hose Problem
Wait for the dryer to cool. Unplug the vent hose and inspect its entire length for snags in the pipe. Make sure the vent is not obstructed on the outside wall, and fit a flap or screen to keep out small animals. If your vent pipe is punctured or damaged, you should replace it.

I think the concept behind the Radiant Floor
Heating System is that Installed tubes or heating element, which contains water
beneath the floor, which warm our floor. For more information about Radiant
Floor system you can check this site.http://www.ps2i.biz/
All you really need to do is install it with a slight dowward slope,1/8 inch per foot is fine.point spout as close to straight down as you can. If you are soldering the silcock in place make sure you have it wide open to avoid damage to seat washer. One thing lots of people forget is that these silcocks are not freeze proof and they leave a hose connected. Quite often water will freeze in hose then go back into body of the sicock and cause it to split. You won't notice this till next time you turn silcock on and it gets real wet real fast.You probably already know this but after30 plus years as a plumber you wouldn't believe how many I have replaced because they left the hose on. Anyway best of luck to you and hope this answers your question.Thank you.
You can use metal strapping with short self-tapping sheet metal screws also where it penetrates roof a metal collar on inside should be used and a roof collar approved for B-wall vent pipe to keep water from leaking inside on outside on the roof.You can penetrate outside of B-wall vent pipe with short screws to secure the pipe just don't penetrate both pipes.this outside pipe is just a insulator to keep heat from transferring through pipe.
I would start at the point of entry and work from there. Increase temperature by any safe method. You can use radiant heaters for crawl space or where it is dry and not a fire hazard. Open faucets on hot and cold side of bathtub or kitchen sink slightly. Open cabinet doors and increase temperature in the house. I would only use heat gun or hair dryer directly on pipes unless you have galvanized steel or copper piping in open area and then use torch sparingly. If you think you know where it is you can install heat tape and insulation. Just be carefule and good luck. Thank you.
well I don't know what type fitting yuor dealing with if it is a compression fitting just tighten it if it is a threaded fitting you can try tighting it but you should take it apart and re-dope the treads.
Insulation only slows down the transfer of heat (cold), it does not stop it. If it is below freezing and the water in any pipe is not moving, it will eventually freeze. Most major industrial supply houses like McMaster-Carr or Grainger in the US, carry pipe tracing tape. It comes in various lengths and you secure it to the pipe under the insulation, plug it in and many types have integral thermostats that keep the pipe above freezing. If you have a washing machine, you will have to consider the lines to the washer valves, both hot & cold and any other areas in the washer that may hold water like the pump and the discharge hoses.
Was this washer always outdoors?
I am guessing that the vent cover you are refering to is the vacuum breaker cap on the top of the faucet. The vacuum breaker is there to prevent water from being sucked back into the system. If that is what you are refering to then yes they do make parts for them, but you will need to know the manufacturers name and possibly the model, then start calling or surfing around. Hope this helps.
That should be ok . but if you can use 2 ferncoes(flexible couplings made of rubber &hose clamps) . then you can cut it to fit corectly. make shure not to pull pipe out of the boot on roof, could cause leak, asueming this is a 3" vent stack.
If it is your drain line frozen there must be a clog in the line somewhere because drain lines should never hold water. If it is a trap or goose neck under your house or trailer, you can carefully thaw them with a propane torch very slowly, or a Heat Gun very slowly, or even a Blow Dryer. After the trap or gooseneck is thawed out, run some hot water until your drain works as it used to. Then you can put Heat Tape on the trap so it does not happen again. Use the proper heat tape rated for metal or PVC plasic pipe according to instructions. Disconnect the electrical supply for the Heat Tape in the Spring as weather permits.....Joe
