Why would cold water run up through a shower pan even though there is no drain blockage?
Do you have an upstairs tenant or the sewer is backing up.

Why would a 95 Dodge Neon miss and backfire spit back through the carburetor when the engine is cold but runs ok after warmed up?
%DETAILS%. Answer . No '95 Neon should have a carburetor, if yours does then there's the problem.Seriously though its a throttle body injector and is controlled by your on-board computer.So many things can cause an OBD-II type system to go awry that it's a waste of time to try to guess what the …problem is.More than likely its one of the dozen of sensor's you have that help regulate fuel.You need an OBDII compatible scanner to pull codes & diagnose the problem.Sorry to say but your best bet is a good repair shop..

Why would your kitchen drain gurgle loudly when your washer drains even though they are in different rooms?
%REPLIES%. Answer . your drains are probably on the same waste line. by upc code your waste line should tie into your main sewer line 6 feet from any horizontal to vertical change in direction. this is due to the fact that the sudds from your washer can actually go up your drain line.. Answer … . It is possible you have a non functioning vent. The heavy flow of water into the wast line from the washer can be causing air to enter into the wast line from the kitchen waist line. Gurgle sounds come from the air pulling through a trap serving the kitchen sink.\n. \nIf you live in a very old house you may not have a vent at all or you may have a vent line run in steel pipe. Scale and rust can dislodge and fall down into the vent line and plug it up. An undersized vent or if in winter an iced up vent can cause the same problem.\n. \nDavid. Answer . \nA partial block in the mainline sewer can also cause this. Find your clean out and watch when your washer drains. If you see it backup at all, you've got to get it cleaned out. (MORE)
Answer . \nI am assuming that the question means the water backs up when the washer is used. When the washer drains, it forces a significant amount of water into your pipes in a fairly short period of time. If your pipes are even partially blocked, this large quantity of water can overload the sy…stem. However, if this problem occurs at times other than when you do laundry, and there are no other indications of slow or blocked drain lines, I am stumped. (MORE)
%REPLIES%. Answer . Because someone has connected the hot water line to the cold service. They are reversed.. Answer . I'm not a plumber, so I don't know if the first answer is correct or not. However, our landlord replaced our shower fixture with one that could be adjusted so that it preve…nted burns. He was pretty proud of it because it was supposedly an expensive model & it was safer for kids. The plumber that installed it used the default settings, I think. \n. \nBut I was unhappy with it for the longest time because I could never ever ever get a HOT shower out of the thing. And I didn't want to turn the water heater up because that uses more energy & runs up the utility bill. Eventually, I got brave enough to pop the cover off the shower control handle and discovered the little safety lever to adjust the water from cooler to hotter. Everything worked fine after that..

What would cause water temperature fluctuation from hot to cold when showering and how can it be fixed?
Answer . If this happens all the time with no other water being used, then you need to install a shower valve that is pressure balanced. Moen makes Posi-Temp and Delta makes the Monitor.
Why would the coolant not circlulate even after you have replaced the water pump and the thermostat twice bled the system and checked for blockage?
Answer . \nThermostat possibly installed upside down. Also a possible clogged radiator.. Answer . \nwe have had the same problems. replaced water pump thermo 3 times flushed sys twice repaired radiator,replaced hoses even left thermo out and still overheating help me too PLEASE!!!!!. Answer … . \nIf you replaced the head gasket, it may not be installed in properly. I.E. coolant passages blocked by gasket.. Answer . \nCould be air locked. I had this problem with a 1995 Grand Am. Get yourself a repair manual and follow the entire procedure to bleed all air in the cooling system. Some vehicles have a bleeder valve between the water pump and thermostat housing. (MORE)
Why would water continue to run from the bathtub faucet when the shower is running and how do you fix this problem?
Answer . The tub spout diverter,is just worn out.Go to your plumbing or hardware store and buy another with the same installation properties.(You may want to remove the old one to see how it was installed)
Answer . \ncould be you starter solenoid. The part of the starter that the cable from the battery plugs in. Experienced something like that on an old car that I had as a teen. \nJay is the name
Answer . \nyou have air in the system you need to bleed the air out at the radiators at the end of each rad is a hex bolt you need a rad key available from any plumbers. Answer . Maybe I should clarify...there is no radiator. There is a pipe that ticks when water drains down my bathroom sink,… toilet or kitchen sink. (same pipe, same location). Answer . \nExpansion and conraction. Especially ABS and PVC pipes touching wood or sheetrock. (MORE)
Answer . \nPossibly low coolant level or blown heater core.....also check thermostat. Answer . CHECK COOLANT LEVEL FIRST. IF FULL THEN MOST LIKLY YOU NEED A THERMOSTAT.
Answer . \nfirst I would see if there is hot anywhere. if not the problem is with your water heater. if its electric check your breaker or fuse box. if gas call your friendly plumber
Answer . You probably shouldent "see" water in the drain, but there is a "P" trap under the drain.The "P" trap holds water @ all times,this keeps exhaust fumes from coming into the living space.if water is not draining properly you may have some restictions ie:hair,soap,or some other debris.. A…nswer . Yes there should be. I think it is to keep sewer gases from coming up. If it overflows, or is slow to drain, you may have a clogged pipe. (MORE)
Why would a shower drain suddenly become so slow that there are inches of standing water after a shower and once the water finally drains why would it appear that debri has come up out of the drain?
\n. \n answer \n. \nHair clogs it up. Every 3 mos or so, pour draino or something like it down the drain.\nthe debris is exactly that. its hair or other stuff that floated up when the trap backed up.
How come when you step out of the shower you feel cold but as soon as you dry you feel warmer even though the temperature is the same?
Because when your skin is wet the evaporation of the moisture takes heat away from your skin and makes it feel cold. When you are dry you do not have this evaporation happening so you feel warmer in comparison. Your body produces sweat for this very same reason to help you cool off on a hot day.
Sounds crazy but it is true. My bathroom sink fills up when you run hot water and drains slowly but drains fast when you run cold water. Does anyone know why Thanks?
Answer . FIX IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!. 7/3/09 -- Above "answer" not helpful.. I also am experiencing same symptoms, but with newly installed sink-bowl. Trap, etc. all CLEAR. I am similarly befuddled as to why COLD drains fast, but HOT drains slowly. The only plumbing change was addition of a hor…izontal rubber section (where the drain goes into the wall after the J pipes) for flexibility. (MORE)
A malfunctioning water heater can cause hot and cold water to surgethrough the shower heat. A faulty water pump can also cause thisproblem.
If it is a newer shower valve, it is probably a 'pressure balanced' valve, meaning it is designed to prevent scalds and severe temperature changes. Sometimes the balancing mechanism can stick (Moen valves usually stick and give no hot water), and can be disassembled and un-stuck. Sometimes there are… rubber parts in the mechanism (O-rings, diaphragms) that can deteriorate and cause it to cease functioning, and the unit will need replacing. (MORE)
Honda Accord 2001 wisheield washer spray nozzle still clogged after running needle through it even though have good water pressure?
Take them off the hood, then try inundating the nozzle in a mixture of CLR, or lime-away, and water. Let it rest for about five minutes or so. After that, run some pressured water through the nozzle with a garden hose. Then try reversing the direction of the current by shooting water through the oth…er side. Hope this helps (MORE)
How do you drain an 2001 escape xlt radiator the panel light for it would light up after the car runs a bit even though there is plenty of coolant in the overflow can. maybe the mix is wrong?
There is a valve called a petcock along the bottom edge of the radiator. Its used to drain the radiator. The low level float or sensor being stuck or bad is a more likely cause of the problem that a wrong mix.
Why would you suddenly get only cold water in your bathroom sink but get hot and cold in the shower?
\nDepending on whether this is a tap or a mixer. Will depend on the answer. If it is a tap, the washer could be stuck, preventing the water from coming out or it may be jammed with some form of debris. If its a mixer, the o rings inside could have slipped out of place preventing the mixing of the wa…ter properly or it may we jammed with some form of debris. Another option to look at is if the tap or pipe feeding the mixer has its own individual stop cock, it may be either closed or jammed with some form of debris. (MORE)
Check to see that the washer is not stuck insisde and make sure that the tap is not full of debris.
This is becauze of Expansion and Evaporation of water. As you make the water into tiny droplets it increases the rate of evaporation and hence causes a cooling effect.

You would want to break up with someone you are not compatible with. Too many differences in core values don't make for a good relationship. Some examples are religious differences, cultural differences or a significant age difference can all be reasons for a relationship not to work, as well as upb…ringing and personal values. \n. \nYou can like someones character, personality, looks etc. and all these are important. However, in a long-term relationship, you need more substance in order to carry you through the tough times, which are part of any relationship. When in those times, you can fall back on your common goals and values, you have a real chance. (MORE)
all vaginas smell different and all smells are normal as long as you keep it clean You might have a yeast infection which is very common. You can have it checked out at the doctor.
If you mean what looks like a drain at the bottom of the pool and the pool is empty you are probably seeing the hydrostatic valve at work. it is there to allow ground water into the pool in order to stop it from floating in ground water that builds up under the pool when it is not full of water.
\nthe shower and bath water comes from two different places so their is two different pipes. Get the shower pipe checked out by a plummer and they cause fix the pipe.
Water keeps running even though the cold water knob is shut off in the bathtub how do I fix this it's a old tub fausit?
Sounds like the washer on the tap is worn out. It should not be too hard to replace it. Your local hardware store will be able to hlep you with the specifics if you want to do it yourself, otherwise you can just call a plumber.
Why does when you first step out of the shower you feel cold but as you are dry you feel warmer even though the room temperature does not change?
Evaporative cooling. As the water evaporates from your body it takes with it a good deal of energy (heat) as the latent heat of vaporisation
Why does it take a long time for water to drain from the bathtub when running water from the faucet. But when you run water from the shower head I have no problem?
More "VOLUME" flowing from the tub spout then the shower head as the shower head has a flow restrictor
I completely close my shower faucet but the cold water still runs it is a two tap faucet and it is just a shower not a shower bath combination what is going on?
Proably the faucet has a worn out washer, replacing the washer should fix the problem.
We have a leak in our plumbing whenever you run the dishwasher washing machine shower tub or sink water comes up the drain from everything and out the bottom of the commode what do we do?
The main line has to be clogged or collapsed. Under the toilet is just the easiest place for it to go. Have a plumber run an auger through the line. If you have a septic tank instead of city sewer than possibly the tank is full and needs to be pumped out.
Well the main reason they say is to take the dirty sediment out of the pipes by flushing it. There is a article below on this called Dirty Water.
What would cause hot water to run out in 1 shower in just 5 minutes yet run for 30 in another shower?
It would have to be the controls or the shower head. Distance from the heater or size of supply lines shouldn't have much affect. The only variable would be the control or shower head and either one could have a flow restrictor in it or both.
The temperature referred to as 1800, is the motion energy of the particles there. If you held a thermometer up, it would NOT register that 1800 temperature. At 1800 o C a human would be vaporised.
Temperature on the heater needs to be higher. Did you get the same size as the old one, or a smaller one?
if all the pipes in the house are the same size the easy answer isadjust the outflow valve on the hotwater tank until it matches thecold water pressure.
Sun light and heat are two different things. The fact that it's cold doesn't mean there won't be any sunlight, especially since mars has less atmospheric protection than Earth. On mars you would need a lot more protection from raw ultraviolet and other harmful sun rays. Also, flying pigs.
How can you stop water leaking through the shower head when both cold and hot water are on but you want the water coming in through the tub faucet and not through the shower head?
You need to replace the valve that redirects water from the tub's faucet to the shower head .
your vent on your shower or kitchen (if you have one) is not working and either the air from the water in the shower drain is carried down stream till it T's off to your kitchen sink then the air follows to your kitchen sink drain line backwards and to your kitchen sink trap and then bubbles through… your trap because your water in your kitchen trap can not drain but the air has enough pressure to go through it OR your water from your shower is flowing past your kitchen drain T and making a siphon which causes air to go through your kitchen trap and makes the gurgling sound one way to fix the problem is to add a Vent line on your kitchen drain and your shower drain with in 42" on 1 1/2 or 60" on 2" on your trap arm if you want to follow the UPC code. Note to above Respondent: That little dot next to the question mark is a "period". Try throwing one in once in a while. (MORE)
Condensation of gas will reject out heat, running cold water through condenser absorbing heat and help the condensation process.
What does it mean if your toliet is clogged and water is coming up through the tub and shower drain?
It means that your main drain line is clogged downstream from where your drain from your tub ties into your toilet drain and the problem can be a hundred of different reasons. The first thing I would check is your clean out (if you have/find one) outside of your home usually within 2 to 5 feet from …your outside wall. If you do find the clean out then take off the clean cover and see if your clean out pipe is full of sewage ( becareful of taking off clean out cover because it might have a lot of pressure behind it if clogged) If you can not find a clean out then if possible wait till the tub drains and then use a shop vac to vacuum out the toilet and then pull the toilet and snake down the toilet drain or if you find a clean out then snake down the clean out. When you run a snake down the clean out or toilet drain if possible run water down it too while you snake the drain line. Most drain lines do not plug up if they are plumbed in right which means have the right grade and have the right fittings so back to your question this could be possible that you have a problem in your drain line and I would (after you clear the line) check it with a camera other wise you might have to snake out your drain line often.

If it is indoors it may be drying out by being too close to a radiator.
No. Once down the drain, it is gone. The water from the shower head is continuously new and fresh. One idiot company does recirculate the shower water back through the shower heads BUT most civilized codes will not allow the use of gray water to be used other then lawn watering etc
I think it's not right to say earth has a limited supply of water but earth has a limited supply of fresh water. But STILL THE BALANCE IS MAINTAINED BY WATER CYCLE. Answer: Water on the Earth cycles through various conditions (ice, water, rain, vapour, parts of cells, chemically bound up, etc.)…. Processes such as evaporation purify the water even though it may have been salty or contaminated. Biological and chemical combinations store it in an "in use" format but this can be released by heat, decomposition or chemical reaction. Ice and snow and groundwater keep the water out of sight, but it does not vanish. The total overall water amount on Earth is seldom reduced, destroyed or added to and stays constant. (MORE)
You need to find out why he feels insecure and if you love him you need to reassure him of your love. If you are doing something that makes him insecure in the relationship, you should stop doing it if it is damaging your relationship.
Not unless you are exposed to water so cold it causes hypothermia (highly unlikely from a cold shower).
Your breath should be warmer than room temperature unless you are a zombie! I am guessing you are asking why does blowing on your wet finger feel colder even though your breath is warm? Moving air allows the water on a wet finger to evaporate faster. Evaporation of a liquid to a gas requires energy …and the water is taking that energy from your finger. Less energy means a lower temperature and your finger gets cold. (MORE)
