The fumes coming off the bins of PVC fittings

In my service van sure stink.
Running water through pipes probably keeps the parts-per-million down, but like lead in brass fixtures, they are trying to get away from contaminants in potable water in the plumbing industry.
Using PVC in flower planters is probably fine, but I would not want to plant my vegetables in PVC pots.
Maybe that is just me, just saying.

I used to work at an antique salvage company in Seattle. We used to have plumbing fixtures re-plated all the time. Old sink faucets and bathtub faucets are all brass. When we would get nice ones that were all pitted or just in bad shape, we would remove the old plating and then buff them until they are glass smooth again and then we would send them to a local plater who would plate them in nickle or chrome. I think that you just need to check around your area more. If they don't plate brass, what the heck do they plate then?

  • Avatar pauljonescpa How can I fix a single knob shower faucet problem?
    Sep 10, 2007 by pauljonescpa | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    There is hot water and cold water, but the way the previous owner installed the knob there is no way to mix the cold and hot water to get warm water. It is obviously installed incorrectly. (turn to the right its cold, turn to the left it s hot, in the middle it s off) I think it should slide out to control flow and then have some type of dial setting for temperature. Is there an easy fix or should I call a plumber?

    • I just replaced my shower stem this weekend. Pop off the front of the plastic handle, you should have a single screw in the middle. Remove the screw and the plastic handle, and then use pliers to pull out the cartridge. The cartridge will be a combination of plastic, brass and black rubber fittings. Don t try to take it apart. You should be able to slide it right back in, turning it 90 degrees so that it operates the valves/input water source correctly. If you damage it, or that doesn t help, take the entire cartridge to the hardware store for a replacement. They run about $10 to maybe …

    Last night my cold water faucet broke in the tub. The knob just keeps turning and turning and no water will come out. Thanks for the answers everyone. I just went and tried the screw. It didn t help any, so I guess the stem or knob is stripped. I guess I m off to the hardware store tomorrow.

    • You need a friend who is good at fixing things to look at it. It s most likely an easy repair, for someone with a hex wrench, screwdriver, and slipjoint pliers.

  • Avatar nathan Why did my water pressure decrease when I changed out my hot water heater?
    May 01, 2013 by nathan | Posted in Maintenance & Repairs

    I swapped out electric hot water heaters. They were the same size (50 gal) and I used all the same diameter fittings, but I feel that my hot water is not holding for as long and the hot water pressure in the shower is greatly reduced. It is not leaking, all valves are fully opened, and the thermostat is set to 120 just as it was on my old one. They were both GE energy star products. I cannot troubleshoot this one. Any suggestions?

    • The work may have disturbed corrosion in the pipes so it flushed to your faucets and is hung up in places like the screens over the faucet head or inside the shower head. It also may have caused something to fall into and block the air vent for the heater. Those would be the first things I would check. Otherwise it might be that when you turned the water to the house off it did something to the main valve and it s not operating properly. That might be a job for your local water company.
