  • Plumber's helper strikes again

    Service at 6-plex. Worked for ~ 15 years. Knockout plug left on end of 4" ABS. Had a chunk broke out of it, like it plugged up right away and someone poked it with a snake. ~ 60% of flowpath blocked. I keep finding these incredibly messed up things that somehow worked for a long time. Makes me think that drainage systems are, really, shockingly robust.
    This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.

    I see it all the time in shower drains. The tileman or plumber never fully cuts out the 2" rubber or plastic test plug. Yet it drains enough to use the shower. Ive even had to pull out rubber expansion plugs that were floating around in the line for 15 years.

    Great thing now with cameras, there's no more guessing.
