  • Its all fun and games until u break out a jackhammer

    Nice new tile kitchen floor.....then a plumer finds a water leak in a pipe under it.......plumer calls the great and all powerfull Gopher....and u end up with this

    lets see if I can answer some ?? before they are asked....1/2 inch copper hot water line with a leak....replaced with pex and 2 fittings brazed in of course.... we poured concrete but the tile part is on the home owner...we dont replace it.

    The plumer I was with on this one...used a ridgid electronic leak detector...dont know the modle...black box with ear phones...and cup on a cable....found the leak soooo close that just after removeing the tile and starting throught the slab about 4" away from the pipe...water shot up...it was dead on...turned off the water and finished digging.

    Customer was soo happy tipped us both $30 each.

      Especially with Pex. I would have stuck with copper on this one with 2 sharkbite couplings.

        Actualy shark bites are a bad word around the shop..owner does not like them....not sure why...just know useing the name gets u a evil look.

        as for going back...why? we put sand down as a base..then concrete...dont see the problem.....we offered the customer the option of re-iping the house but declined.

        Then again I get paid by the hour not commision soooooo pays the same if Im diging a new hole or and old one....and being the helper....not the plumer digging holes is in my job description...
