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 CLEA…R. I am similarly befuddled as to why COLD drains fast, but HOT drains slowly. The only plumbing change was addition of a horizontal rubber section (where the drain goes into the wall after the J pipes) for flexibility.

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 caus…e of the problem that a wrong mix.

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.
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.
Drain line it's connected to is clogged.
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.
There has to be a leak somewhere - check everything .
