                This post sounds like a load of crap. I have read lots of posts on this forum, and I noticed you state you are a better plumber than anyone else on this forum. So why would a plumber of your caliber start a post like this asking others for help, others that you look down on yet. There is to many inconsistencies with your posts not just in this thread but many more. The feel I get from most of your posts is that you want to raise your post count with dribble, and argue with everyone that is not a devout follower of you. I for one will not read your threads anymore, I do not see them being helpful to anyone but yourself.

                    When I have done plumbing calls way out in the country at the ranches and farms, the people in these remote places are very resourcefull. They have to be. They tend to save everything left over from the last project. Their barns and sheds are full old maintence items that could be a short term fix for almost anything. I've had more than one call where I'm scrounging for a fitting in my truck and they walk up with two 5 gallon buckets of assorted fittings. I gets done one way or another.

                      Your right.....your post sounds like a load of crap. Says so in the first line of it.

                      Where did I state I was a better plumber than anyone on the forum? I think you may have things mixed up in your head. Please find any and all of what your talking about and QUOTE it for me. Thanks!

                        We have a customer way out in the middle of nowhere which is on 100 acre horse farm. The closest supply house is 30 minutes away easily. People argue whether or not these people are millionaires or billionaires.

                        If I'm stuck for a fitting, the owner will come out with a box of fittings/Plumbing parts that have years of dirt and dust collecting on them. The guy drives around the farm in a late 80' Ford pick-up truck, AND any copper I cut out..he wants to save it for himself so he can scrap.

                        He keeps asking me to drink his water, cause he has a natural spring running through his property. I have yet to take him up on his offer..

                            Do you think he got to be a millionaire by throwing away perfectly good copper.

                              He became a Millionaire because his father had some patent on jet engines. Before that..they were tree farmers.

                              But..I just laugh to myself when he wants to keep the copper. But after all..it is his.

                                I have found that alot of these out of town ranch owners in our area have inherited family land and are more land rich and money poor. They have to work regular jobs to keep the bills paid and the whole horse/cattle ranch thing is more of a tax write off to keep the ranch in the family and keep handing it down to the next generation.
