YES!!!! all a window does is change the vapor into liquid. What is needed is to get the moisture OUT OF THE building. I prefer Neutone 200 CFM unit, for get specs, they are all way too low. You are combating health issues if you allow moisture to remain....mold...

Also, the exhaust ducting needs to run downhill as it exits the building, or you risk moisture dripping from the fan...

Futher, put a 60 minute timer on the fan, and run 45 minutes (at least) for every shower....

probably hair stuck in the drain. did you remove the stopper "pop up" if no hair or blockage there or in the trap, then its further down, you will need a small snake. 1/4 inch cable works well in bath and kitchen drains.
you can purchase one at home depot.

If it is truly a porcelin top then you can use a product called plumbers putty available at your local hardware store. It will conform to the shape of the drain and provide a good seal. If this is a cast marble or resin type of product then plumbers putty will void any warranty and possibly discolor the sink. Ensure it is indeed porcelin before continuing and follow the manufacturers directions for installation. Good luck with your project.

It depends on the brand of jet and tub, if it is a gold or silver trim ring, they will generally pry off with a screwdriver, just be careful not to damage the tub when doing so. When prying, move the screwdriver around the jet an inch at a time, just like opening a can of paint. Some rings will screw on, but most just pry off.

The bowl is filled up with the little hose inside the tank, it locks inside of the overflow drain. And runs water in there as it flushes to swirl the water and fill the bowl. Water seeks it's own level, and the level in the bowl is at the top of the trap. It has to hold water, unless it isn't filling or it is leaking. Check out the filler and hope the bowl doesn't have a crack in it. Hope this helps.

you can get universal replacement parts from your local hardware or plumbing supply store. For some models you may have to remove the tank from the bowl. Most you can unscrew from inside the tank without removing. Good luck.

There's a lot of variety in the works in the toilet tank. Assuming this is not a pressure-assisted toilet-----First understand the three valves are: 1. The shutoff valve - on the supply line coming into the toilet tank. 2. The fill valve - inside the tank, opens with the float descends, closes when the tank fills up. 3. The flush valve - inside the tank on the bottom. Common old style is a flapper on a pivot. Yours may operate straight up and down rather than on a pivot.
Three very common problems are---- 1. The chain that connects the handle to lift the flush valve is getting caught, not allowing the flush valve to close. 2. There is problem with the flush valve being able to get a good seal when it closes - could be debris or misalignment. 3. The fill valve is not closing when the tank is full, could need adjustment or there is debris preventing the valve to seat. . Here's are some steps to diagnose---- close the shutoff valve. Wait a few minutes as you watch the level in the tank. If the water level decreases, you have problem with the flush valve. To confirm the fill valve as the problem, turn the shutoff valve back on. Lift up on the float that is supposed to turn off the fill valve. If it shuts off, you should be able to adjust it - most have a +/- plastic adjustment screw. But if raising the float by hand only slows it down, you have problem with the seating of the fill valve - which can sometimes be cleaned, but more often would need to be replaced.
I hope this is helpful. Thanks for using FixYa.

Are you on well water? If so you may have dissolved iron in the well water, it enters your house as clear water iron and then once areated in the tub it turns yellow as the iron oxidizes. Another sure sign of this is if the water in your toilet yellows after sitting in the bowel with no use after a few days. Solution: have a reputable local water treatment company come test your water, test for disolved iron, total hardness, and pH. If the disolved iron is 5ppm or less then a water softener will fix the problem. Make sure they add a turbulator to the softener and use iron fighter salt or mix iron-out into the salt tank.

Run a short snake thru the line. Somewhere between the drain and the tee into the line with the sink is a clog.

The only way that water can get from the tank to the bowl is thru the hole in the middle of the tank. That is the hole that the valve, or flapper closes when you flush and after the appropriate amount of water is dispensed from your tank. Your valve could be ok..especially since it is a new one, but not making a good seal at the seat in the bottom of the tank. I have seen this before with a flush valve change, I have on occaison had to return the part and get another one. Can you manually push on the seal and stop the leak? If so, this will narrow down which part of the seal is leaking. Not much adjustment though. American Standard also sells a replacement seat, that can be cemented on top of a worn or leaky seat, this usually will cure the issue as well. I have found that when replacing the valve, it is a good idea to replace the seat seal as well just to be sure and not have to do it over. Good Luck! I hope you find this to be very helpful!
