  • Bill – He had a couple valves replaced and now they’re stuck. He’s wondering if there is a way to lubricate them?

Recommendation – He’d have to take it apart and apply “plumbers grease” to the parts. It might be easier to just replace it. The problem is sediment building up because of the hard water we have in AZ.

  • Ryan – He’s looking at taking on a paver project and putting part of it on top of a concrete slab. He’s been told he needs to put sand down first. Does that sound right?

Recommendation – Yes, it does. All the pavers are glued on the edge, but the middle pavers are all put down on sand. Rosie describes Belgard’s “Overlay” pavers and why he loves some of their latest products.
