The home warranty asks me: Water Heater: Leaking from the tank (controllable). Do I click on this? Does "controllable" mean the home isn't being flooded or are they asking if I can repair the over flow faucet?

A drain pipe in my basement is dripping. I just had a

A drain pipe in my basement is dripping. I just had a laundry tub grey water pump installed and when it is pumping water out I see drips. It is dripping at a capped off piece further down the drain system. There is some dirt collected on the cap, and on inspection it slid out and there was dirt on the 4 inch piece of pipe. Please suggest how to correct it. I think I can just clean off the pipe assembly and put duct tape on the end piece, but I want to sell the house soon so I don't want it to look tacky. I can add pictures. What's the right way to set this up?

I was hoping you could help me reset a Whirlpool hot water

Hello Pearl, I was hoping you could help me reset a Whirlpool hot water heater after the FV sensor got tripped. I have gone out & bought a new sensor this morning, but it immediately flashed 7 times again as soon as I turned it on. There is no gas leak from what I can tell. Can you tell me how to reset this thing?JA: Sometimes plumbing issues that that you think will be really complicated end up being easy to fix.

My hot water heater appears to be leaking somewhere in the

My hot water heater appears to be leaking somewhere in the top of the canister. My wife had been placing shami cloths over the diode rod thinking that it might be causing the leak. I have since replaced this but there seems to continue to be a leak coming somewhere from the top. It is a Smith 100 gallon water heater and is approximately 10 years old and in fairly good shape. Where should I look for the leak?

WILL PAY BONUS! Thank you in advance on what to do here. I'm

WILL PAY BONUS! Thank you in advance for recommendations on what to do here.I'm trying to figure out how much work I need to get done to resolve three concerns with my new home. The home was built in 1907.1. Very old galvanized pipes have corroded2. Low water pressure throughout3. Hot water takes a whileI'm going to attach the inspection report showing details of all the home's plumbing issues. In addition to my main concerns, there are some other issues with p traps, s traps, etc.I need someone experienced to tell me what's important to get done- I basically want to replace all the pipes in the house with PEX and trying to make sure I don't overspend or if fixing the incorrect ptraps or whatever is important or not.I have two quotes for the work so far, not sure what to think yet.Bid One: $5800: http://screencast.com/t/2nbOfyK0e8Bid Two, varies based on what I want done, from $4000 to $8600.There are 4 items quoted, but they say #4 is "just in case"?: http://screencast.com/t/AWfGftITULast, I will attach screenshots from the inspection report:Page 1: http://screencast.com/t/tUTmLP7rDupbPage 2: http://screencast.com/t/r6sL1r0FPage 3: http://screencast.com/t/wboh1YmwBQFLPage 4: http://screencast.com/t/qL7SVfe3OHPage 5: http://screencast.com/t/9on6U90aFLPage 6: http://screencast.com/t/gNJ6V65cThis is a small one bathroom home with a small adjacent laundry room and normal kitchen (fridge, dishwasher, sink) and two exterior hose bibs, and then the water heater downstairs, so most everything is in one corner of the home which I think makes the plumbing easier.I could just use your recommendations as Experts on what I need to get done, and how I should get it quoted out to not overpay.
