OK now I'm glad I've become a service plumber and bidet advocate and spokesperson. My gosh all the floor joists and studs and basement walls would be full of my tabulations If I knew how to do all that.
Ah you've seen one of my top outs.Numbers/marks/snaplines everywhere.Kindof bugs some people,say it's sloppy.
I'm sure my old boss would rather see chalk lines writing and math all over instead of all the couplings and scrap pipe he saw on my jobs.
I'm sure it happens to him to.Gets me from time to time.Kindof depends how much you use it.Besides Bosses are never happy.You could make-em a million dollars one year...
the next they have set their bar for you at a million-five
I don't put in a piece of pipe without at least a little math...elevation of tees compensateing for pitch,simple offsets,parallel offsets,rolling offsets,combination offsets,equi-spread offsets..setting manholes,figureing inverts..metric conversions(stupid govnt. prints)...the list goes on.
We had a guy we use to call "Lord of the Rings",or "Captain Coupling"..because of the piles of 1/4" wide pipe rings that would be laying around his work area...it was fun,we'd make olympic symbols with them,and glue them to his hardhat.
Plumbing (..err well new construction plumbing) is all about the math,then again,you really don't need to read a ruler to string out some pex....
