In my new airing-cupboard, there is a pipe-connection that looks very odd. Photo here
. My initial thought was that something had corroded, but the cut-out areas are identical on each site, and look like they're supposed to be there. Is this right, or should I be getting someone to fix it? If it's supposed to be like this, then why? And should water be dripping from the top-pipe into the bottom?

60-year-old house, trap arm and drain/vent are galvanized, trap arm is rusty and I want to remove it. Or should I cut it, or hire someone to do it for me? [more inside]

My stovetop espresso maker has a small leak. I don't think returning it will help me. Are there any recipes for food-safe 'stop leak' compounds? [more inside]

A water main leak was repaired in front of our house. Our facets spewed muddy water. Now possibly contaminated dirt is settled in the water pipes. Health and mechanical/structural risk of dirt and debris settled in water pipes? If, and how to remove? Where for water sample test? How to deal with the Water co. on liabilities? Attorney recommendation?

Plumbing question - you have a bath tub, free standing, with no shower; no switch to change between the water coming of the faucet vs from a shower head, and no shower curtain or support for such. How much (and what) would the parts be to add shower functionality? Is this a job that you could do by yourself?
