I desire to upgrade an existing sump pump system to divert

I desire to upgrade an existing sump pump system to divert the sump water currently discharging into the sanitary system to that of a storm water system. I have the following questions as I live in an area where the frost can be as deep as 42"1. does the uniform plumbing code allow for switching the sump water to the sanitary system when ground freezing occurs (where water is likely to freeze within the pipe)?2. Does the code define the depth required for the discharge pipe from the sump pump to the curb?

The water stop valve at the wall, that serves the icemaker

The water stop valve at the wall, that serves the icemaker in our refrigerator broke when I tried to shut it off. The on/off lever just broke right off.I shut down the water in my house, as it sprayed everywhere.I need to replace the valve, or at least just close it off with an end piece, but I am not sure what to remove, or exactly what I am looking at.The black putty is where the valve broke off, and I put it there to stop any dripping.

My Delta kitchen faucet was installed new last year at a

Hi,My Delta kitchen faucet was installed new last year at a vacation rental property. It's on a stainless steel sink. A thin bead of sealant was put around the base.This year, there is some mildew behind the sealant. I was told to scrub it with hydrogen peroxide. That did nothing.I would like to remove the bead of sealant entirely. I will need to remove the faucet, though to avoid scratching it.Is that a project an amateur like me can do? I suppose I have to turn off he water to the house, which is fine if needed.Faucet is the single handle kind.Thanks.Holly

I believe that my vent pipe may have a crack some where. The sewer smell some time is in the bathroom, but sometime is outside the bathroom in the hall way. It's on and off. I've changed the wax ring, flushed the p trap, even flused the vent pipe from the roof top. The only possible reason for the smell seems to be the crack of the vent pipe. Is there a way to determine whether there IS a crack? I heard something about a smoke bomb. How does that work? Is there some gadget to detect the sewer smell? I have very sensitive sense of smell. What if I call a plumber and he can't smell it?
