  • shift

    After working for a outfit for about 2 yrs. ( getting under 20 hrs. for the last 8 weeks) ran into a guy at the supply house I worked with some time ago. He invited me to come work for his uncle. So I did. BAM 50 hours a week. Yehaw. Started out finishing a top out, (3 floors) Cool mech room 2 Buderus, 1 Lochnivar condensing. Heating and cooling coils, radiant floor, snowmelt. Will get pics.

            Hey, that looks great. Thank you for the pics. Your jobsite looks like mine, a upside down bucket and a Pepsi.

              How can you call yourself a plumber?
              Why is that drywall NOT charred to a standing piece of Black Coal?

              That is a beautiful piece of work for many to admire(if they can see it) for years to come.

              Awesome Stokes.

                Real artistry.

                How long did what's in the pics take to complete?

                  I don't know much about plumbing but if that was my job and I walked in and saw the quality of work displayed in those pictures I would be really happy and recommend you to everyone I talked with.

                    The primary loop is packaged prefab, I don't care for it. Kinda limits options somewhat but it's good for time. Time ? I haven't been keeping track(their always pushing anyways) My time is split with managing four fitters that are helping, material lists, layout.

                      Doesn't look like the plumbing in any new houses that I have seen.

                      Shortest distance between any two points is a straight line, a washing machine drain across a cellar window so it couldn't be opened.

                      Furnace zone valves placed where they could not be accessed.

                      I have even seen PVC tub drain joined with a beer can packed with monkey s**t, and the dry wallers covered it right over.

                      I have even seen galvanized pipe used for gas lines where black iron was required by code.

                      I'm not a plumber but good work stands out (as well as bad)

                        Congratulations dude! Judging by your work pictures, you deserve 50 hours/week and good pay too. GOOD plumbers are hard to come by.

                          I don't know what most of the stuff in your pic does, but all that copper sure looks cool!

                            Its a hydronic heating system powered by a boiler. The different pipes and pumps are zones that heat different areas of the house with separate thermostats.
