I need toilet replaced in my master bath. Thanks.

Abe D

Upstairs toilet is leaking. Ceiling below it on the first floor now has a large water mark. Turned off water to toilet and that has stopped the watermark from growing. Need a free estimate as soon as possible. Thanks and have a great day!

1.70 What does it mean when a house needs new plumbing?

Q. A realtor told this to my fiance on a house. Rather than going ahead and paying an inspector, what does this mean? What does "new plumbing" entail?

A. Well it depends on WHAT he told her....if he said new plumbing then he probably means new water AND drain lines......that would be a repipe of both systems.....but if he said new kitchen lines or bathroom lines then he meant just that......find out EXACTLY what her told her....NOW after saying that i would STILL get the inspector bacause he doesnt just check plumbing...he looks at the WHOLE house.....the framing and support.....electrical.....plumbing....foundation......roof......walls....EVERYTHING....so i would definitely get the inspector that way u will know everything thats needs fixing and not just the plumbing

1.20 How much would it cost to finish and remodel my basement?

Q. I want to rent out my basement by adding a small kitchen with a stove and oven, microwave, dishwasher,sink and two, small, counter tops. I want to add a bathroom with a corner shower, double sink vanity, and toilet. I don't have any plumbing down there. I also need to add a small walls and doors. thanks!!

A. Ollie, people often hire a remodeling contractor to do something like this--totally remodel their basement into a living place--since it usually requires a lot of trades (electrical, interior walls, etc.), and a remodeling contractor usually handles all of such trades, making it--in theory--cheaper to pay one contractor as opposed to paying each specialized-trade contractor. There are plenty of local remodeling contractors seeking to give free estimates with no obligation, and taking advantage of this is the consumer-smart way to go about finding an accurate answer to your question. It's important that you get a local estimate and not rely on guesses found here on Yah, as a lot of factors really bear on the cost of such a project, including the following: The cost of material and labor greatly varies by location. A local remodeling contractor can easily assist you in this project of yours. If you negotiate well with the contractor and he buys the building materials for you, you may try to have him pass the discounted cost of the materials to you in exchange for giving him the job, as usually contractors get discounts (called "contractor's discounts" or "contractor's price") when buying from suppliers because of the many purchases they make as required by their jobs. As I said, free estimates from local remodeling contractors are the key to your success in this home improvement project of yours. Here's a great link to a handyman site that offers free very resourceful information to assist you in determining the cost of your project, and, ultimately, selecting a local remodeling contractor in an effort to get the best deal for you: REMODELING CONTRACTOR INFO: http://yourhandymanzone.com/Your_Handyman_Zone_Free_Estimates_Remodeling_In_Gen.htm I'm sure you'll find the information you need, specifically the tips, useful as it relates to being treated fairly by contractors and exploring the consumer-wise approach of getting free written estimates to find the best contractor in your area. . Source(s): The Internet. Just whatever is available online and what I have on my mind, including the inclusion of relevant sites, like the one cited that came about from my efforts, which is intended to be useful. Helping people get the relevant info they want is great.

1.20 How do I do decorative exposed plumbing?

Q. I'd like to add decorative exposed copper plumbing to my bathroom (for a funky industrial feel) but I have no resources to reference! Does anyone know where I can find some? Thanks!

A. I've seen the look you're after and it's pretty flash here a couple of sites, although one is in black and white you'll get the idea of what is possible using exposed copper plumbing. www.vintageplumbing.com/ This other site has a few of the fittings you'll need to get it down. http://www.bizrate.com/plumbingsupplies/products__keyword--plumbing+copper+cross.html I tried answering your mail but it came back? anyway it's right now. Edit: Now this one isn't working, you're going to have to copy and paste the URL to get there, I have no idea whats happening here.

1.20 What are the issues with copper plumbing in a home built in 1988?

Q. I have a friend who has a home that has copper plumbing. The residence was built in 1988, and she was told by a neighbor that copper plumbing is bad and has to be removed/replaced in order to keep the value of the home for resale. This doesn't seem to make sense and the home DOES NOT have any plumbing issues to date. The neighbor cautioned that copper plumbing can burst. Is there any ring of truth to this or is the neighbor thinking of something else. A home built in 1988 doesn't seem that old to me. Please help. All answers are welcome. Thanks. Additional details. Here is the suspected issue: Different metals or types of pipe: copper and galvanized iron, were directly connected in the potable water supply system From this point of view, we are told the entire plumbing in the home needs to be changed. Can this be right?

A. If the copper pipe is stressed, it will create a leak, but only if stressed. By this I mean thin wall, kinks, etc. I have never heard of copper pipes devaluing a home. If anything, copper will add value compared to CPVC or galvanized. If there are no issues with leakage or significant corrosion, leave it.

1.20 Is hot water plumbing connected to the toilet plumbing?

Q. I have a problem. I always flush my cig butts down the toilet and now there is a plumbing problem in my apt building. They will be turning off the hot water for repairs. Will It get traced back to me?

A. Only cold water it routed to the toilet. Flushing drains the water to the sewage pipe. Hot or cold bears nothing to this, its all sewage.

1.20 How difficult is it to get electricity and plumbing for a backyard pond that is 33 feet away from the house?

Q. According to my previous research about ponds, I will need an electricity and plumbing source for a pump in a pond. I would like my pond to be around 100 gallons maximum. So how difficult is it to bring electricity and plumbing to my desired location? Thanks-- any help will work!

A. I have 2 ponds, both over 100 gallons, 40' from my house, and the only plumbing I have ever needed is in my outside water faucet, with my hose attached. If you want electricity, I paid a handy man $300. He dug the trench, laid the conduit, wired the box and tapped into my household circuit.

1.20 If this is stated in the lease, who is responsible for a new AC unit in a building I just leased a month ago?

Q. Repairs by Tenant: Tenant shall keep by routine maintenance, repair, and replacement, at its sole cost and expense, the interior of the Premises, together with the storefront and all doors and windows of the Premises, and all electrical, plumbing, and any other mechanical installations serving the Premises or located therein, whether or not in or under the floor slab or on the roof of the Premises, in good condition and working order. Tenant agrees to employ a suitable contractor to perform Tenant's obligations for maintenance of the heating, cooling and ventilating units of the Premises, including at least semiannual inspections and cleaning of the system together with such servicing as each such inspection shall disclose, or as shall otherwise be reasonably required by Landlord.

Georgia

A. The landlord is responsible for all major repairs. If the unit is bad, that is not considered maintenance.

1.20 Basement remodel & they installed toilet drain incorrectly, it passed inspection - Warranty expired?

Q. Added bathroom in basement remodel & contractor incorrectly ran the toilet to our outside drain & not into the city sewer system - it was passed by the city inspector. There was a two year warranty that has already expired. It cost $1200 to have plumber fix sewer extractor - not sump pump. That is how we found out about the incorrect plumbing. We cannot use the toilet because it comes out in the middle of our backyard. Can we sue the contractor even though the warranty expired?

A. Yes you can. Contact them first to see if they will resolve it. If not I would not contact codes I would contact another plumber or two and get estimates with noting on the estimate that it was installed incorrect. If you call codes they most likely will take no responsibility and could fine you for dumping waste. They will deny all responsibility and cover there a**. Then send them a copy of the estimate and file small claims case.
