How to repair PVC pipe: The Compression Fitting
Greg Chick, Ramona's Plumber, shows how to repairing broken PVC pipe where there is limted space and pipe movement available, by using a compression fitting. This particular method is limited to low pressure situations such as irrigation distribution lines to the sprinkler heads - not water main or water supply lines. Though there are compression fittings available that can handle high pressure, that's for another video. The compression fitting does not require a solvent joint, as so it is great for situations where the repair area is flooded. See the other PVC joining videos for additional methods. PLEASE RATE AND COMMENT. All questions posted will be answered! For additional information go to http://DIYplumbingAdvice.com or call Greg at 760-788-2889

Parker ZoomLock for Braze-free copper tube connecting
www.parker.com/sporlan The new Parker ZoomLock fittings are specially designed to work without brazing, which automatically makes your job simpler and faster when joining copper tubes. In addition, the one-piece fittings are reliably secure, leak-proof and more repeatable than brazed connections — so there’s no compromise on quality or performance. The one-of-a-kind ZoomLock fittings are truly a game-changer for air conditioning/refrigeration contractors looking to be more efficient. The ZoomLock braze-free connecting process is based on exclusive, patented crimping technology. You only need two hands and a few simple tools. No brazing, no experience . . . and practically no time at all. Using specially designed crimping tools, just connect the de-burred tube ends into the fitting (which has O-rings inside), and press the assembly into place for a secure, leak-free seal. Another advantage of the ZoomLock process is that if the press fitting is not crimped properly, it can be easily re-crimped. In addition, it requires no adhesives, just the crimping tool and the fitting. Talk to your local Sporlan Authorized Wholesaler or Parker Distributor about the new Parker ZoomLock braze-free fittings.

DIY: How to Remove a Fastener with Threadlocker without Heat
Video tutorial on how to remove a fastener with high strength thread locker without using heat. A fastener with high strength, usually red in color can be quite the nightmare to remove. I am currently fighting with this, I have four bolts to remove for the wheel bearing which used a thread locker from factory. Heat can’t always be used in every situation, the strut is right next to these bolts so heat would be a good idea or perhaps you don’t have access to a torch. The heat normally helps melt the thread locker making it softer and easier to work with.

Installing an Air Tight Chimney Cap to Stop Air Leakage
http://www.drenergysaver.com | 1-888-225-6260 In this specific job, Dr. Energy Saver was called in to help this home owner cut energy loss while enjoying the heat of a very peculiar fireplace configuration. His fireplace was fitted with a wood stove, and a stainless steel chimney pipe ran through the masonry flue. In homes with a fireplace, the chimney is one of the biggest air leakage sources in the entire structure, regardless of whether the fireplace is lit or not. Heated air in the living space tends to rise towards areas with colder temperature, and the flue from the fireplace to the top of the chimney is basically a hole in your house providing the ideal escape route for heated air. Closing traditional chimney dampers will not stop air leakages because the typical cast iron damper doesn't seal too well and allows air to get by. Wood burning stoves cause a lot of air leakage. When lit, the stove speeds up the leakage process. The stove uses surrounding air for combustion, causing more outside air to be sucked in to replenish the supply. That means that the area next to it might feel warmer thanks to the radiant heat from the fire, but further away from that room, the rooms feel colder, and homeowners can experience cold drafts coming from windows and doors. In addition, the steel pipe expands and contracts with temperature variations. In this case, there were holes around the damper for the air to escape through the masonry flue. To help this homeowner, Dr. Energy Saver installed an air tight chimney cap to stop the air leakage. If you have a fireplace that is causing cold drafts and uneven temperatures around the house, let the experts at Dr. Energy Saver inspect and suggest the best and most cost effective solution to make your home more comfortable and energy efficient.

How to Seamlessly Join Two Pieces of Pipe - Kevin Caron
From http://www.kevincaron.com - Artist Kevin Caron shows how to seamlessly weld together two pieces of metal pipe, rod or square tubing .... Sometimes you are working on a project - making a fence, a cage, whatever - and your pipe or rod is a little short, so you want to add a piece of scrap to get your correct length and have a smooth piece of pipe. To show you how to join them to make a single piece of metal pipe or rod, Caron starts by taking two lengths of metal pipe over to his chopsaw. But before he puts his stock into the saw, he uses his framing square to check against the backstop and the blade to make sure the chopsaw is set at 90 degrees before he makes his cut. Once that's confirmed, he secures the stock. Caron emphasizes, though, that when you put your stock into the chopsaw, you don't have to crush it - just make sure it's snug. He puts on his safety glasses and hearing protection, then cuts off the ends of both of the pieces he is going to join to get a clean, straight area. Next he goes over to his bench grinder, which he's modified so he can add a 4-1/2" soft pad - which he usually uses on his hand-held angle grinder - on the outside of the grinding wheel. He dresses the edge of each pipe, giving it a nice chamfer, or bevel, and touches the flat end of the pipe to remove any burrs so it will jig up neatly. He lays both pieces of pipe on a piece of thick-walled angle iron, which gives him a straight 90-degree edge - the angle iron is great for square tubing and pipe. Everything fits together and lines up so he can weld down into the joint. He has a good kerf that gives ample penetration while allowing him to grind the welded joint smooth and flush. Next he clamps down each pipe with a Kantwist clamp, which has an X in its bottom pad that lets you lock everything in place. Because it's a tiny joint, Caron uses 1/16" E3 tungsten sharpened almost to a point and some 1/16" filler rod in his TIG welder. Caron then tacks both sides of the pipe because a single tack on the top can result in a bow. Then he welds a small tack on the top, rolls the pipe over, reclamps it, and gets a tack on the other side. So now he has tacked it on all four "corners." Then he welds between the tacks. When the welding is done, he lets the pipe cool down a minute or two, then uses his 4-1/2" angle grinder with a soft pad to smooth the surface. Caron checks his work with a straight edge, looking for light between the pipe and the straight edge. Finally, he can finish the job with some 80 grit and some 120 grit with long passes to hide the weld. For more how-to videos, visit http://www.kevincaron.com

This video is all about how to fit an outdoor garden tap or faucet. From siting the tap and drilling the hole through your wall to piping it up using copper pipe and installing valves and non return valves. Follow me Instagram! http://www.plumberparts.co.uk/social.php?socail=Instagram ***VISIT OUR SPONSORS*** http://www.traderadiators.com | http://www.grahamplumbersmerchant.co.uk | http://www.wilo.co.uk | http://www.adey.com ***WEBSITE*** http://www.plumberparts.co.uk ***Facebook*** http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001119410854 ***Twitter*** https://twitter.com/#!/plumberparts Hello and welcome to today plumberparts.co.uk video. This video is gonna be all about how to fit an outside tap. There's a couple of ways you can do it. Two types of kits, there's also a kit you can get where everything comes in one massive piece. You have the hose, you have a check valve with all those bits and bobs on it. We're not gonna do it like that, we're gonna do it properly with hard pipe. We're gonna use some soldering, it's gonna be bloody great. Remember to hold tight. Once you've chosen the position for your outside tap, we're gonna try and get it about here, directly under this middle spine of this window. Now it's always easier if you can try and put your tap underneath the kitchen sink outside because you've got your cold feed out there already. A couple of things you need to think about is you probably don't wanna be feeding the outside with softened water supply because you'll be paying for softened water to go outside into your grass. A bit dumb. And also when buying the tap, if your tap you buy doesn't have a built in check valve, that's a non-return valve, you have to buy a non-return valve separately because you cannot have the possibility of water going back into the main from any outside tap. I've chosen where I'm gonna put it. I am not gonna punch a hole through the wall and we're actually gonna feed the tap through and affix to the wall and then I'll show you how to do the connexions out from the other side. Right, so the particular outside tap pack we've got today is one like this. So you can just push it straight into the wall. Obviously a lot of the time you have big tap that have an angled upward inch and a half female plate that you actually screw into the wall. Then you have to screw it in. So that means sometimes you have a bit of 15mm, a 15mm elbow coming up and then going into the plate. But these are slightly simpler, a bit easier to do. So it's a matter of pushing it into the hole now, marking our three holes, drilling them and getting them plugged. Little tip, before you do that, just pop some tape over getting inside your pipe. Drill and plug. I've almost got our plugs in. Just grab yourself a little bit of silicon, pop that in here around this so then if you do get any rain or anything like that, it doesn't get into your home, get all over the place. Popped in beautiful like that. That will stop any water getting in. Right now tighten up your three screws nice and tight. Once this is all in nicely done up and you've smoothed off the silicon around the bottom, or around wherever it may have spread out, don't use the PTFE they supply with the tap okay 'cause it's poo. You wanna use LocTite, this stuff's really good because you need this tap to stay upright and stable and Lock Tight not only seals the joint, but actually creates a really tough, hard to move joint as well once it's in. So how you put that on, you just wrap it and you actually cross it over the threads like so. So you actually sort of go over the thread like that. Then that gets that in. I just wanna run that nice into there. Apprentices always put too much on when they start using this stuff. Then we just run it in, just start off hand tight like that. It's already gotten tight now. So what you wanna do is get yourself, I don't really get that out with the hands. I got a lot of time for that. So we're done outside, no we've got our tap in, make sure that you turn it off. And now we're gonna go inside and I'll show you how to do your connexions up in there. Right now, so here we are under the sink. There's out pipe sticking out as I'm sure you'd a guessed. Right, what we're gonna do it I'll put a little elbow on here. Our cold water is this pipe just down at the bottom here. So just T, we just elbow and T into that cold pipe nice and easy. But along the way, going up we need a valve that turns off the outside and also our check valve or non-return valve. We'll put them in like that on the way out. If you wanna learn more about check valves or anything like that, we do have video on it. I'll leave a link to it at the end of this video. I'm just gonna cut very small piece, put that into there with that arrow pointing up. Pop that piece into there with that arrow pointing up, then this arrow going in the same direction. Pop that in there and then we're gonna tighten these two up.

Individual results may vary, and caution and care should be taken when loading the valves with high pressure. The risk of higher pressures is that the balls may be forced from the adaptor, shooting out like projectiles. High pressures may also cause the ball to lock up, preventing normal operation of the valve, or possibly even structural failure of the valve altogether. These valves are not made, or claimed, to be used in any heavy duty operations. Use of this content is at your own risk. Music By: Music by Jason Shaw (TU-GetAMoveOn) http://www.audionautix.com Project Inspired By: WaterWolf http://www.sscentral.org/homemade/check_valves.html Project History & More Info: I wanted to build a PVC water pump, but the check valves were around $10.00 each. That seemed a little steep for a PVC build, so while looking for alternative options, I settled on this design, which is about the cheapest, while still being practical and useful, that I could imagine. In my testing, the valves work great with air and water. Air pressures up to 60PSI seemed to be fine for normal operation, while pressures above 60PSI occasionally caused the ball to lock into the O-Ring, and required substantial "back-pressure" to unlock it. If you try using rubber bouncy balls as the valve mechanism, only use them in very low pressure applications like blowing up balloons, and possibly for improvised water guns. Relatively high pressures used with these balls seems to eventually force them out of the adaptor, and can shoot them out at surprising velocities. Overall, I'm really happy with the valves because they can be fit into any part of a PVC system, and can be duplicated quickly, easily, and for very very low cost.

(#ad) WARNING: This video is only for entertainment purposes. If you rely on the information portrayed in this video, you assume the responsibility for the results. Although sugar rockets are the slowest burning of all rocket fuels, this project should not be attempted without adult supervision, proper permits, adequate training, and at a location far away from people, property, and anything flammable. Misuse, or careless use, of rocket propellants may result in serious injury, wildfire, and in extreme cases, death. Ignition of an incendiary or explosive material may not be legal in your area. Check local laws and inquire with local rocketry clubs on how to safely make and launch sugar rockets. Have fun, but always think ahead, and remember that every project you try is at YOUR OWN RISK. Music By: Scott & Brendo “Kitten Air” Instrumental iTunes: http://bit.ly/ScottBrendoiTunes YouTube: www.youtube.com/scottandbrendo Project Inspired By: A previous project on making Sugar Rockets (http://bit.ly/RedneckRocketry). I wanted a way to lock and load them into a homemade rocket, so they'd eject a parachute in a way that was light weight for the rocket, but still safe. Project History & More Info: I'm really excited to share my passion for building and launching rockets with completely home-made equipment. In my opinion, it's the best way to learn about how rocketry really works. In a previous project (http://bit.ly/SugarRocket) I made rocket motors using PVC, sugar, kitty litter, and stump remover. They worked so well they made me want to design a rocket they could be used with, and my friend Ritchie Kinmont with http://www.sonicdad.com was instrumental in making that project actually happen. I made this tutorial to be a more comprehensive sugar motor tutorial, going over all the things you'd need to do to make a successful motor that will work with the "Randomizer" rocket, and addressing some of the issues and challenges I've faced in the past with failed attempts. The 'Screw-Lock" version features threaded PVC risers, that allow the motors to quickly be changed, for faster turn-around times, and they have built in ejection charges for popping out the parachute at apogee. I played around with ejection charges in the "Redneck Rocketry" video (http://bit.ly/RedneckRocketry) I realize most people aren't very excited by building rockets, but for those who are, I hope you feel the same sense of wonder and awe as I did in building this series. Most rocket clubs won't let you fly sugar motors, except on special experimental launch days. However, the “Randomizer” rocket can also be used with commercial “Estes” D12-3 and E9-6 black power motors. So if you go with those, there's a good chance they'll let you fly your rocket at any club launch. The rocket can fly over 1,000 feet high, and depending on the winds, can stay in the air for around 5 minutes while it floats back to the ground, so it's important to be super cautious where, and when, you launch to avoid doing any damage. Rockets are not toys, and this video is mainly for educational and demonstrational purposes. If you’re going to attempt making a rocket yourself, I highly suggest you check local laws and inquire with local rocketry clubs on how to safely make and launch them.

How To Remove Rounded & Seized Bolts On A Bike | Maintenance Monday
The moment a tool rounds off in the socket, your heart feels like it stops. Simon is here with some bits of advice for removing rounded bolts from bike parts. Subscribe to GCN: http://gcn.eu/SubscribeToGCN Get exclusive GCN gear in the GCN shop! http://gcn.eu/fB Let us know your methods, hacks and tips for removing rounded bolts in the comments below Ex-Professional Cyclist gives you advice and methods of removing those rounded bolt heads on components, using a shoe cleat bolt as an example in this case. A hack we were sent in was putting a rubber band over the head of the hex/allen/torx key. The idea is that the rubber band fills the empty space in the rounded off bolt head. Let us know if that works for you It is also possible to use a Torx key in the head of a rounded off allen/hex socket, you will normally need to hit the Torx key into the socket, and run the risk of damaging your Torx key… Before attempting to remove a bolt with what looks to have a damaged head/socket it is worth soaking the threads in penetrating fluid. Visiting a local hardware store is best for this, as there are some great products out there. Also, Coca-Cola has been known to break down any corrosion too. Drilling bolts out is a last resort, ideally a bench drill is used for this so that you get a clean drill through the bolt. In this instance, the cleat can be sacrificed. Hacksaw the cleat away from the shoe, and use molegrips to twist/undo the bolt from the thread. Before you do this, soak the bolt in penetrating fluid or similar, overnight. Lastly, to help prevent bolts become seized in place, presenting you with rounded off bolt heads/sockets. My personal advice (GCN Jon) is to use a high grade marine grease or copper grease on threads, this will help prevent salt from getting into the threads and causing a rusty joint between the two components. A tip we’ve also heard of, on cleats, is to put some silicone sealant in the head/socket of the bolt, this helps prevent foreign objects interfering with the socket. The silicone can then be removed easily with a pick when it comes to time to remove the bolt.

I really hope you guys like and find this plumbing video very helpfully. This plumbing job was done back in September 2016. The story of the house is that the home was flooded out in a heavy rainstorm back in April 2016 and after that, the home had to be gutted out and renovated. The rainwater had done so much damage and it was no longer safe in the move back in. Much of the wood had to replace the roof, electrical, Plumbing and even all the bricks were removed and the home was re-bricked. This was a great opportunity to replace all the hot and cold water lines. I was the one renting this house before the flood. I lost just about everything. Just in case you guys were wondering who live there and I didn’t want you guy’s thing that I thought lite of the situation. It was a bad flood, but things happen and life goes on, and given the opportunity to re-pipe the house was a great chance for me to video tape and post it here on YouTube. I do have another pex re-pipe plumbing video here on Youtube, but that was a house that all the walls and ceiling were in place. This job gives me a chance to show you guys what’s going on behind the walls and above your ceilings. And on this video I didn’t make up my own manifold/ Manoblock pex distribution box for the pex pipe plumbing system here you get a chance to see how I really Anker the pex brass fittings down and how the tub and shower valve are installed.

How to Fix a Toilet - Fill Valve Replacement
http://www.homeownerseries.com Fill Valve Repair = http://youtu.be/IB0VHdhUR1s?hd=1 Fill Valve Part Overview = http://youtu.be/bNQFOwuUCKg?hd=1 To view the Fill Valve Replacement Playlist = http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=4A143A19D85596B2 Replacing the Fill Valve Diagnostic The Toilet Fill Valve controls the amount of water in the tank of the toilet. This assembly should be replaced if it begins to not shut off correctly, becomes damaged, or corroded. To minimize any disruptions in service, it is suggested that the Fill Valve be replaced every five years as part of regular toilet maintenance. Parts A new fill valve assembly can be purchased at hardware or plumbing supply stores. The package should include the Fill valve assembly, refill tube, lock nut and any gaskets. Tools The tools needed to replace the Fill Valve are a pair of rib joint pliers, an adjustable open-end wrench, and a small plastic bin. Replacement Begin the replacement of the toilet fill valve by removing the tank's lid, turning off the water supply valve, and flushing the toilet. If the toilet already has an existing Fill Valve, and the base is in good condition, then the fill valve may be quickly replaced by reaching to the base of the fill valve and pulling up the lock ring, removing the refill tub, and sliding the Fill Valve off of its base. The new Fill Valve is installed by simply removing the base that came with it and sliding it onto the existing base in the toilet. Reach behind the Fill Valve and snap the lock ring down into place. Then attach the refill tube to the overflow tube and adjust the new fill valve for optimal water level. If the Fill Valve base in the toilet is not in good condition, then the entire unit will need to be replaced as follows. With the tank empty, position a plastic bin to collect water under the water supply hose and unscrew the hose from the base of the tank, having any water drain into the plastic bin below. Now with an adjustable open-end wrench, or rib joint pliers, unscrew the lock nut located on the shank of the fill valve. With the nut removed the entire assembly can be pulled out of the tank. The old assembly should be placed into the plastic bin as it may continue to drain water. With the old assembly removed, take the new unit and adjust the height to best suit the height of the tank and overflow tube, usually around 1-inch below the tank's edge. Insert the threaded end into the hole where the previous assembly was removed. Position the new assembly and thread the lock nut by hand securing the tube upright. Once hand tight, secure the nut a quarter turn further with the rib joint pliers to insure a watertight seal. Now re-attach the water supply hose to the fill valve's shank. Place the fill valve's refill hose into the overflow tube. The refill hose must not extend below the tank's water line or water will constantly siphon from the tank. Most fill valve kits should include a metal clip or angle adaptor that, when installed, will prevent the refill tube from going below the water line. Once in place, turn on the water-supply valve and the tank will begin to fill. Make any adjustments to the water level by sliding the adjustment clip, located on the fill valve, to change the height of the float-cup. The tank's water level is best at about 1-inch below the top of the overflow tube located in the center of the toilet. Inspect the new connections to make sure that they are not leaking water, and flush the toilet to test the toilet's function. Once in order, replace the tank's lid to complete the project.

Removing A Stuck Bolt When All Else Fails
When you've got a bolt that has a rounded off head, it's hard, and very frustrating, to try to get it loose. On this stuck bolt, I tried a socket, vice grip pliers and even a pipe wrench, but couldn't get it off. Because the head was rounded off, and the position the bolt was in... well, I just couldn't get a good enough bite on it to loosen it. So... what to do? Well here is a great... last resort way... for removing a stuck, rounded-off bolt... when all else fails.

How to Fix a Kitchen Sink Drain | Basic Plumbing
Watch more Basic Plumbing videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/513655-How-to-Fix-a-Kitchen-Sink-Drain-Basic-Plumbing Okay, folks. So, today, I'm going to show you how to fix a kitchen sink drain. This is a very common repair, because they rot out quickly. The material that you most commonly see under a kitchen sink is this brass, here. This is 17-gauge brass, which is actually referring to the wall thickness of this pipe. This is called a tailpiece. In particular, this is a flanged tailpiece. You can see that flange. Behind me is a sketch of a sink, all right. This item here is called a basket strainer. You've probably seen this in your own sink. This is the stopper that you use that catches all the food. And below that, is the part that's permanently affixed to your sink; this is the basket strainer itself. So, for our purposes today, I've illustrated the basket strainer here, okay? This is the basket strainer, this assembly right here. And this, right there, is the tailpiece. So, when you get a leak below your kitchen sink, when you have a leak, all of a sudden, you open the cabinets one day and there's water below. Most likely, this, or some portion thereof, has rotted out, cracked, decayed; it's time for it to go. So, you need a few tools to get this done, okay? Once again, a Channellock. This time, we want them with the teeth. The reason I have two pair is so that in case I need to hold back, I can turn like so and gain torque that way. I'll demonstrate that in a moment. The other is a 20-cutter. 20 is the number of the cutter, okay? This is a big cutter so that you can get around this pipe to cut it, all right? Most likely, this comes at a standard 12-inch. You'll probably have to cut it to some length, depending on the height of your trap. The trap is that you shape the piece of pipe right there under every kitchen sink. And if it's not under your sink, it should be under there because somebody did something wrong. The purpose of the trap is to keep water in that U. To trap everything in the sewer, out in the sewer. Things like flies, bad smells and sewer gas, more dangerously. So, imagine the water level in the trap will be sitting right here. So, when water goes down from the sink, it goes out into the drain and out into the sewer. But that little U-shaped piece of pipe, the trap, keeps a little bit of water there to keep everything on this side of it, the street side we call it, out there. Now, when removing a basket strainer from an existing sink, it can kind of get hairy. So, imagine this basket strainer living in there for 15, 20 years. So, we've got the nut that holds the assembly onto the sink, like so. With time, that nut can fuse on and it gets really difficult to remove. So, the only caveat there, you might have to hire a plumber, because we need to get in there with a saw and cut it out and it can be a nightmare. If it's not and most of them aren't, you can use this tool here. There's no other purpose for this tool in the world other than that brass nut on the bottom of the basket strainer. It is designed solely for this brass nut. It fits on like so. See the little nubs on that nut? It grabs perfectly and you can turn that nut like this, okay? This is essential. A lot of guys, a lot of plumbers or homeowners, you can get the job done with the Channellocks but what you have to do and it's a pain, is grab those two nubs and then you get what I call the "knuckle buster." It slips, boom, and you smash your knuckles between the Channellocks. And then the next thing you do is throw them behind you. Probably hit your wife or husband or whoever's behind you and we have a bad day. So, I have the right tools for the job. Let's say we've got the basket strainer out and now, we're looking at a kitchen sink that's just a steel sink and there's a hole there. What you're going to do is take this piece here, this collar, as we call it. Put a roll of putty around that collar and smush it down into the sink. That putty is going to kind of keep it there. Okay, now, our head will be up here above the counter top. We're going to go beneath. What you're going to see are these threads here, okay? If I'm going to refer to my drawing, now we've got this collar stuck down into the sink. And we see these threads down here. Now, we can concentrate on putting the basket strainer assembly together. So, from under the sink, again, we're looking at these threads. Your drainage assembly will come with these two gaskets. One is a cardboard gasket. The other is a rubber gasket. The rubber gasket is what makes a watertight seal. The cardboard simply kind of holds it in place. So, you would, again, looking at these threads underneath, put these up, like so. Then you're going to take your brass nut. This wide brass n

How to Install an Insinkerator Garbage Disposal - PlumberStock.com
https://www.plumbersstock.com/category/221/garbage-disposal/ https://www.plumbersstock.com/category/3071/insinkerator/ In this video West Harris shows us how to install a garbage disposal from Insinkerator. Insinkerator garbage disposals have long been the preffered brand by many homeowners because of their solid construction, quiet operation and dependable performance. Video Transcript: Welcome to our garbage disposal installation video. In this video West Harris shows us how to install an Insinkerator Badger One 1/3 horsepower garbage disposal. This garbage disposal features a powerful 1/3 horsepower engine, a rugged steel construction and an effective sound reduction system. We will start out installation by removing the clip ring and various fasteners from the bottom of the garbage disposal drain. You have the option here to use the included gasket for your drain or to use plumbers putty like West does. West prefers using putty over the included gasket because it provides a better seal and should last longer than the gasket as well. It's a good idea to clean out your sink to prevent any debris from interfering with the seal under your drain. Once the drain has been seated in the sink you may need to get some help for this next part. Ask someone to hold the drain in place from above the sink while you slide the fasteners into position and reattach the clip ring. At this point you can tighten the fasteners down, taking care not to over tighten them. If you used the plumbers putty instead of the gasket, now is a great time to clean off any of the excess putty from around your garbage disposal's drain. Now that the drain is installed we can turn our attention back to the garbage disposal itself. We will start by installing the rubber insert into the drain on the side of the garbage disposal. Then we will slide the chrome fastener plate onto the elbow pipe that is included with our garbage disposal. The flared end of the pipe will be installed into the rubber insert that we just installed inside of the garbage disposal. The metal plate can then be fastened to the disposal to form a tight fit that will prevent leaks. Above your elbow pipe you may notice a small barbed pipe. If you have a dishwasher, the dishwasher drain pipe can be installed onto this fitting. However, since there is no dishwasher involved in this installation we are going to simply let it be. It is now time to install the garbage disposal. Installation is simple but be careful since garbage disposals are very heavy. Simply slip the disposal into place. If you are looking at the disposal from below, the disposal attachment fitting will rotate on in a clockwise direction. Attach your Garbage disposal drain to your P trap using the hand fasteners. You should now test your connections by running some water down your garbage disposal drain. If no leaks are present, you are now ready to plug in your disposal and test it.

Step 1: Brush off Loosen as much rust as possible off the nut with a wire brush. Step 2: Tap Tap the sides of the nut with a hammer to help the rust separate and fall off. Step 3: Apply heat Apply heat to the side of the nut for about a minute. Tip A small, narrowly directed propane torch—one made especially for small jobs—will work best for this job, but be careful. Step 4: Spray lubricant When the bolt is cool enough to touch, spray WD-40 on and around the nut and bolt. Step 5: Tap Tap the end of the bolt with a hammer to loosen the threads and allow the oil to penetrate. Step 6: Loosen Wait another minute or so for the oil to work, and then use your wrench to loosen. Tip It sometimes helps to tighten the nut slightly and then try loosening it again. Step 7: Split it If all else fails, buy a nut splitter and crack that sucker in half. Always wear safety goggles when using a splitter. Did You Know? Painting an object prevents rust from forming by blocking water and air from reaching the iron or steel surface.
