Re: Simple Question.......trying to repair toilet tank leak!

Ok, thanks for your reply Greg? Is the bottom what is called a sharkbite fitting? I am just curious. What size is the tubing..... 1/2 inch?

I did tighten it some more as you suggested and that seems to have fixed the problem.


Again, thank you for responding. I appreciate it.

Re: leaking hot water heater, desperate for help!

This is exactly how my hot water heater looks. I simply found it easier to replace the whole tank. I purchased mine from home depot for $237.00 in 2012 ( GE 40 Gal. Medium 6 Year 4500 Watt Double Element 240 Volts Electric Water Heater) and had a friend do the installation for me. :)

Re: Help Please - bathtub faucet / shower head

Ok, that is what I will do then (replace the cartridges). It is too much trouble trying to replace the entitre assembly without easy access to the rear. I really don't see a way to access unless you cut the drywall after removing the trim I think. Another question Dan. Will the shower head just scre...

Re: Help Please - bathtub faucet / shower head

Hi countrydan, thanks for your reply. why are you replacing these? you can just turn off the water, relieve pressure, and replace the cartridges just so you know... I don't understand.

What can I get to fill in some tiny cracks that I see? I see some other little tiny cracks in other parts of the ...
