    Whoever did this should be in jail, unless he was a licensed plumber. In that case he should be hung by his ***sack.

      Thanks ArizonaPlumber, I was waiting for your comments? This is the big problem I am confronting here, as the chief engineer does not see anything wrong with that ... Whoa ... All units (about 150) we're remodeled by the same people with closed doors (no permits, no inspections), most of the units have gurgling kitchen and lavatories drain, slow drains and some have sewer odors, those drains and vents are compromised and I am in the middle, as I am licensed, use common sense but those people are like cinder block mentalitity.

        "The chief engineer does not see anything wrong with that....." He or she is an idiot in this regard. Don't be afraid to tell them to their face either. If they want to play slide rule stupidity, then they choose to remain stupid.

        Turn in EVERYONE that worked on it to your state board. Then send the pictures to the engineering licensing board with the "engineer's" name and approval of these multiple Rube Goldberg back alley abortions.

        Why? Kudos (from the Ancient Greek: κῦδος) is acclaim or praise for exceptional achievement.

      Are the owners putting your license at risk?
      The bigger issue for me, is the putting other peoples health at risk.
      Maybe its time to step up and do the right thing.
      Read something somewhere about commission and omission, and the consequences thereof.

              There is a bright side to this. Ridgid makes a seesnake microdrain that will navigate those 1.5" sch. 40 90's.

              would be iinteresting to see what's in the wall.

                You wouldn`t get away with that here the Plumbing Industry Commission who licenses us would be down on them once their inspector had seen it there are penalties plus costs for rectification and the majority of plumber are not going to put their (Lively hood) license at rist

                  I seem to recall that Harrah's in Las Vegas did a couple of remodel jobs where there were no permits. Had to open up everything and start over. Life safety issues on electrical iirc.

                    Just 2 more units kitchen remodeled and 1 bathroom, see how shine and beautiful the pipes are. Can you see any violation here? Next I will post a letter I sent to the board of directors and I know I lost my job by Monday. But the best part is ... that those units cost over a MILLION dollar each!

                      Notifying the Board of Directors is a good first step. If they chose to heed your advice, and make it right, all well and good. By making it right, I mean, getting permits, uncovering the completed work, having inspections, etc. As for your job, whistle blowers never come out on top, and they always get fired. But the way I see it, they're setting you up to be the fall guy anyway. Besides when you interview for your next job and they ask why you were fired, just show them pictures and explain you don't do this kind of work as it puts other peoples lives at risk.


                      Down the road I see some major lawsuits. Make sure you let as many of the actual unit the owners know that you'd be available as an expert witness. Keep documenting with pictures. I read somewhere they're worth a thousand words!

                        The first set of pictures there were clear plumbing infractions The second set just looks like they made the best of a crap rough in but I don't see what is so bad with it.
