Why would no hot water come out of the kitchen faucet while above in the bath and below in the basement it works fine?
I ran into this problem and fould a piece of debris caught in the stop, check that first.
You need a basement toilet system. There are 2 basic types, one has a small pump that pumps each flush or use of a faucet to level immediately. The better system has a 40 gallon bin fitted in the basement floor with a septic pump in it. This operates on a float switch and pumps about 25-30 gallons of liquid when the switch is triggered.
a half story house is usually called a split level house. instead of a full 7 or 8 ft. basement below the ground, it has 4 ft. of basement below ground and 4 ft. above ground. a half story house is usually called a split level house. instead of a full 7 or 8 ft. basement below the ground, it has 4 ft. of basement below ground and 4 ft. above ground.
At the Empire State Building's location at 34th Street and Fifth Avenue, street level is about 50 feet above sea level. All 102 floors from the first up are thus above sea level, as are the two basement levels. The foundation descends for 55 feet, so the very lowest part of the structure seems to be just below sea level.
How do you determine where water is leaking through from the second floor showertub to the kitchen below?

You close the 2 shut off valves below the faucet, remove the pipes going to faucet from both ends. Now you will see the 2 large flat nuts holding the faucet to countertop. These will be easier to remove with a plumbers faucet wrench (about $8 in your hardware store) This has a long shaft and a flat spring loaded head. Remove both nuts and pull faucet out.

If you have adequate flow from the other sinks in the house then either one of the items mentioned below should help. The first thing to look at is the aerator. At the end of the faucet spigot there is a small screw on ring that holds a screen filter (the aerator) sometimes it can get plugged with debris and cause a low flow issue. The next thing to check is the shut-off valves beneath…
