    Re: Plumbing we see while clearing Drains

    i saw these during building checks when i was on-call for the local gonvernment here.

    the hose clamp repair is by a company that charges $85/hr x 2 for a hack and his hack helper.

    the 6" grooved BI pipe is part of a sprinkler system that was just replaced by the local gov't plumber. this piece had to be fabricated by somebody else because the plumber didn't know how to groove a pipe. looks like he doesn't know what the vic grease if for.

    can you guess what's wrong with the multi hanger pic? the vic was installed years after the insulated pipe. the insulated pipe is the hwh system, and the vic is the new heat recovery pipe.

    these just go to show that hacktown has no boundries, and not all plumbers are created equally.

    i might be anal about my work, but i'm good at what i do, thank God i'm a plumber

      HAHA hose clamp repair........well I will say I have done that to get the water from dripping or spraying onto something while I am draining a system, but NOT for a repair.

      The sprinkler system looks like the plumber found a piece of pipe that had a groove in it already and just welded it in place, the original pipe is painted white and the new pipe has some red paint on it. I would say that it has a hole in the pipe at the groove or the vic gasket is not in right or it looks like there might be an extra flat gasket in there (it is not needed and can cause leaks).

      Why would anybody hang six inch pipe, fitting and valves off of, looks like one inch pipe.

      Oh well that's what keeps me busy and doing service work, and gaining new customers.

            The funny part of this is that the black fitting is also a rubber long sweep 90...lol.. rubber on rubber. the flow was from the 2" white PVC pipe to the 2" copper with this crap in the middle of it all. You should have seen the rest of the plumbing, Not one P trap anywhere
