Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Mike-B @ #7099: Until it fails again? Did you check your hoses DOM?(date of Manufacture)?

Catch pans under washers and Hot water heaters greatly reduce plumbing repair costs...

When was the last time you exercised your water stop valves indoor and kerbside?

Outlet filters??? for septic system?

DOM on the outlet hose? The thought hadnt crossed my mind. Its as old as the washer. 13 or 14 I'd say. Probably still be ok if it hadnt been rubbing on the corner of a CMU pilaster all this time.

I can see a drain pan being useful if it were on the main floor. My washer, hot water tank, and furnace are all in my unfinished basement right next to a drain. If anything leak, it goes right to a drain.

I have city water. The local water authority was at my house maybe 12 months ago to remove an old meter for a house that was on my property that i demo'd and to install a new remote reading device on the existing meter. We exercised the valve at the curb and in the house that day.

Outet filters are for the new washer discharge house. Keeps lint from clogging up my utility tub.

Re: The Wall Of SHAME!


Mike-B @ #7102:The DOM was in regard to the two Supply hoses, a much greater threat then a 20-40 gallon leak....



If your water supply has a one way valve( anti-back flow preventor) I'd install an expansion tank for hot water heater driven over pressure cycles.

Also some cities routinely run over 60 PSI service pressures that can lead to in house plumbing failures, thus a pressure regulator is recommended...

A few correctly sized anti hammer devices can also lower wear and failure of plumbing components.

That’s a hand dryer, it dries your hands while you wash. Big time saver, gets people in and out of the bathroom faster.

Damn, they made gutters back then? Civilization is amazing. I will say this tho, we have made leaps and bounds over all the other centuries. But couldn't have done so without all their hard work. Tinstaafl, we salute you for all your struggles.

Had a network patch panel today where the work done by the original installer was so bad the punch downs were being held down with electrical tape.

A first for me.
