comment Water draining out of pipe when usage is high.
@Mazura Thanks! reading up on that tells me that the "vent" was important in this case because if it was not there then the waste water would have gotten into the water softener. Based on my research I've told the plumber to not proceed with the work. I will call a plumber who knows a thing or two about water softeners.

ok, I'm taking your suggestion of sealing one step ahead. I'm replacing that PVC to 3 inch pipe without any vent (since I assume there is no need for vent here). one end will take the plastic line (from the softner) and the other end will just go in the drain. Does that make sense?

yeah, but I'm not sure whether that is a long term fix. It seems that water is draining out because that PVC gets over filled. It hasn't been over filled in one year. What would cause it to overfill now. Only thing that changed is the new toilet I put in. Maybe the flush pressure is high in that toilet?

Yes, that is the only thing connected to the pvc. In the first image, the black pipes on the left and right of the PVC are what is draining the toilet and the sink.

comment Dimmer not turning bulb on or off
@Peter I've connected the green wire to the copper wire but still when I turn the button on/off it has no effect. However, I have noticed that when I do conenct the green to the copper then both wires coming from the wall become HOT (when dimmer is connected). Latest image: imgur.com/xjiQ1eX
