I have a Hunter lawn watering system. It is Model #: XC-600. I have it set up to water twice on Tuesday and twice on Saturday. Recently, it started watering ever day of the week, at the times that I have it set to water on Tue/Sat. I have reprogrammed it, unplugged it, pulled the battery out, and still it does the same.

My kitchen drain continues to get stopped up, even though it

My kitchen drain continues to get stopped up, even though it was cleaned by a plumber a few months ago. It is not hard to clear the clog now--just a couple of pushes with the plunger will clear it. But the garbage disposal is 14 years old. Do you think that the disposal is not doing as good a job as it used to and should be replaced?

Plumbers - The front load washer in our laundry room

Hi Plumbers -The front load washer in our laundry room produces a sewer-like smell somehow. It peaks during the rinse cycle, although I can smell it somewhat during the agitation. A hose comes out of the bottom of the washer, curls over an edge into our laundry tub where it can drain. I've covered up the tub drain with a stopper to see if the smell is coming from there, but that doesn't seem to get rid of it. Also, when I put my nose down into the tub, it doesn't appear to be the source of the smell. It's strongest in that room. There are no leaks that I can find, and I cannot locate exactly where the smell comes from.What is this?

I think I have a problem with my sump pump. It was

I think I have a problem with my sump pump. It was buzzing/humming this morning so I unplugged it and plugged it back in. That stopped the buzz, but the little bit of water that was in the crock was warm. Now tonight the water is still warm and when I put my hand in it its now very oily, but clear. Also there is a very oily smell in the basement. I have since unplugged the pump and NOT plugged it back in. I know I probably need a new pump, but is the oily water something I need to be converned about?

I have a hansgrohe shower head and tub faucet combo with thermostatic faucet handle...JA: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?Customer: It drips pretty regularly from teh shower head or the faucet. There seems to be no middle ground for the handle to prevent the dripping. Annoying, not severeJA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?Customer: drip every few seconds to maybe 10 secondsJA: Anything else we should know to help you best?Customer: I replaced the thermostatic cartridge, hoping that was it, but it does not seem to have resolved the issue
