    I am looking for the hot and cold water valves that will screw on my existing 1/2 pipe. What I have now is the following(house built in 1911),the assembly is mounted 11 above the tub and goes through a plaster wall covered with ceramic tile wall. The valves screw on a 1/2 pipe, the valve stems sticking out of the valves are 4 long and with a 11 1/2 center valve to valve.

    I Live in Sun City AZ in a Del Web retirement area. The toilet bowl is of the type that connects to the wall with 4 bolts. The Tank mounts on top of it, I dont want to have to have them come in with a jack hammer to just change the bowls. They have become worn inside from where the water has eaten away at the porcelan. They need to be replaced I need 2 of them. If you have them or I can have you get them for me could you quote a price with shipping

    The linkage/stopper that was connected to my Bathtub Overflow Face Plate has broken off the back of the old face plate. I bought a new face plate and it says to attach it to linkage w/ cotter pin – which I do not have. Do you sell just a linkage & cotter pin ?? I live on Nantucket Island, and the only home center that we have here says that you have to buy this whole kit with pipes, etc. for $45 – is this insane ? The Face Plate was old, and had the linkage attached, but it corroided off. Please help. Thanks!

    A customer told me, yesterday, that they got theirs from Cyberfaucet on the internet. If it was in the same condition when they received it was when they gave it to me to install , then I think it was a display unit, or possibly a returned item.: Can anyone give me the name or phone number of a good discount plumbing fixture supply?

I am going to replace the lower thermostat this afternoon. : Any other suggestions??One of the elements, probably the bottom one, has burned out, but not in such a way as to blow the breaker. It is bypassing the thermostat and running all the time at a reduced power level. The only thing that shuts it down is the reset kcking out. Check power draw with an ammeter on all four element wires to see if one is running when the other one to the same element is off.

    in reply to: Hot Water Running out way too soon. #304669

    Larry:–Sounds like your lower heating element has taken early retirement. Check the voltage to the lower element…if its getting voltage(220), and its not heating, its the element. If you change it use a low watt density element to replace it . after you clean any accumulation of debris from the bottom of the tank…Lots of Luck…Bud.

    in reply to: Hot Water Running out way too soon. #304696

    I had the same problem. I found the problem to be my lower heating element. When I took it out I saw why – it was pretty corroded. I replaced both the upper and lower elements and now I have hot water to spare. I know virtually nothing about water heaters so I asked at Lowes Home Improvement Store and got the scoop on what to do. Its an easy job and the heating elements were only $6.00 apiece.
