Plumbing in the Home/Convert kitchen faucet to laundry faucet


home worker wrote at 2013-05-16 16:20:26
The primer is merely a pipe plug in a set of laundry taps which may be removed and replace with a pipe nipple, a 1/4 or 3/8" tubing pushed onto that nipple goes from that nipple to the floor Y trap, to keep it primed. I am currently also investigating this dilema, as kitchen faucets do not have the pipe plug.

I can help with most questions about residential plumbing repairs. I am familiar with septic systems, and can answer some questions about water wells. I have no experience with commercial plumbing or codes.


I have been a sole-proprietor service plumber in two small towns north of Phoenix Arizona for 26 years.

I wrote a monthly column for the United Steelworkers of America local 1033 [Chicago] newsletter from 1978 to 1982. I wrote an article for "The Theosophist" in 1977 and have had dozens of letters to the editor in many newspapers, including a recent "My Turn" article in the Arizona Republic.

High school and three years of college. My step-father, having worked 40 years in the plumbing trade in Chicago, trained me for two years. The rest has been hands-on experience.
