ERV systems usually exhaust the bathrooms. The air eventually leaves the ERV unit and exhausts to the outside through a sidewall hood or a roofcap. As long as the opening to the outside can handle the flow, you can direct the output of the bathfan to that opening. Find the duct that exhausts outside and install a Y duct fitting. Point the single tail of the ...

Do not violate the recoat window Paints dry (lose wetness and stop being sticky). Put salt water in a tray, and it'll dry leaving a coat of salt; thats's drying. As a totally separate action, they also cure (polymerize into long tough molecules); this polymerization is what makes paint not whitewash, and what allows cured paint to resist its own solvent. ...

A single handle faucet will have seals called o-rings they wear out over time, dissemble and take the the o-rings in to a plumbing or big box store and they should have replacements there are not that many different sizes of o rings in the range used for faucets.

There's a link to the applcation instructions on their website. https://www.homaxproducts.com/kitchen-bath/sink-tile-refinishing/tough-as-tile-one-part-finish-spray-on-kit-white (this page is not the instructions but contains a non-transferrable link ) It says not to allow it to cure for more than 6 hourse before recoating, so you'll have to re-do the ...

I'm willing to bet that it is dirt and grime in the plumbing that is preventing a good seal. I would take out the linkage and plunger and clean out the pipe at least to the length of the plunger unit. There are several ways to do this but it should be mechanical in nature, like scrubbing a dirty pan. Here is one example of a tool that you can buy and you can ...

Most tubs have a flow sensor that must be made to turn the heat on. I have had these sensors fail and cause the same problem but had no error code as mine was even older. The sensor or switch was on the length of pipe (metal) where the heater was it closed when the pump was running and opened when the pump was not running , this was the safety so the heat ...

If you try to repair that crack then the complete length needs supporting as it is flexing too much. I had one where we noticed the flex early and I fitted a beam with supports underneath - made access a bit more difficult but still ok. Seen one where the next crack developed a short distance down from the repair so think carefully about the real cause as ...

If you just had it replaced then that means that your contractor should fix this issue. Regarding fix vs replace: I suggest trying to work that out with your contractor. If the decision is to attempt a repair I would be sure to get IN WRITING that they are guarantying the repair of the tub. You paid your good money to have your new bathroom and you deserve ...

I'd repeat what you did with the faucet but after removing the cartridge put a large bowl over the opening and then open the supply valve for the hot to flush out the pipe. See if it's the same flow as the cold. Then examine the cartridge and back feed some water through to flush out any debris. Also, many faucets have valve screens installed around where ...

Yes, there could be a connection between the two. In fact several things. Sometimes scale buildup (lime deposits) will occur especially in hard water areas. If the hot shutoff valve is old or your water is particularly hard you could have builup in the valve that is preventing full flow-through. Sometimes turning the main off and then on will loosen some of ...
