Shut Off Valves

Hi Shannon, Hope all is well. I was told by an associate at Home Depot that I could install a shut off valve that will work to shut off the water for both my tub & shower with only installing only one valve. However, for the life of me I cannot picture in my head exactly how this is done. If I had t...

Re: Jacuzzi Tub wiring

I did not know how to reply within the same message so I copied our conversation over. That sounds fine. You should look at the wiring of the GFCI thou, and make sure that the other outlet is in fact on the 'load' terminals. reply: I will confirm. However, I was going to eliminate the other outlet c...

Re: Jacuzzi Tub wiring

Hello EMTNUT. Hope all is well. Just to reiterate. I will like to have a total of 4 switches inside my bathroom once all is said and done. So I finally removed the Jacuzzi and opened up the walls. I confirmed that the Jacuzzi wire is yellow so it is a 12/2 wire, which is coming directly from my main...

Re: Water Lines

Oh ok. Both toilets are rarely used at the same time. That being said, I will reduce them to 1/2. Thank you so much!

On a side note; do you have any videos on how to add a shut off valve using pex?

Water Lines

Hi Shannon, Hope all is well. For the purpose of my illustration; I named the photo Pipe 1 & Pipe 2. However, these two photos in reality is just one pipe. I will need to re-route the pipe, because it is in the way of what I will be doing. Pipe 1 is ¾” coming from the floor with a reducing T that is...

Re: Expansion Tank

oh one more question. Does the expansion tank have water in it? If there is any water in it and If I drain the valve, will it get rid of the water?

Re: Picture molding on stairs

I was just thinking what would be really cool is painting inside those spaces of the moulding, either a lighter or darker shade of the red wall. That would add even more visual interest to the stairwell. [Hi Aaron, I know it has been a very long time but I finally took your advice and painted the m...

Re: Jacuzzi Tub wiring

Hi emtnut,

Thanks for replying. So are you saying that I could just add the 3 additional switches from the existing light switch that turns on my ceiling light?

Also, what exactly do you mean by "you would need to splice on smaller 14 or 12 awg wires."
Thanks again?

I understood that the switch controls the light and the receptacle, but agree... Get back to us JV and clarify :mrgreen:
Yes, the switch powers the receptacle, which powers the light.

Oh sorry, my misunderstanding was the switch at the lower floor switched the light in the attic. I bet the existing single light in the attic is a pull-string type.

Yes I assume it is a pull chain. I guess we will see when he replies?
Actually it is not a pull chain.

Re: Attic Lighting

You can just extend the circuit at the light. The switch would then control all new fixtures you chain on to the existing one. My apologies if I was not clear. SO let me try it again. The way it is set up is that there is a black wire going from the switch to the receptacle in the attic. Then there...

Re: Washer & Dryer Relocation (Gas Line)

I should have asked this previously. Being that the vent pipe going up is ABS and I will be connecting to PVC. What exactly do I need to make the transition?
