    Re: handyman plumber

    OK HVAC HAWK being how you say that you are a plumber or was tell me this.
    No one help the master plumber here, lets see if he gets it

    The total distance that water must be pumped, the number of fittings, and the speed at which the water is traveling through the pipe all contribute to:

    a. the volume of water available

    b. friction loss

    c. static pressure

    d. the available water source

      ACS,don't take this as a negative,but if I changed trades I would probably give my liturature to another person.In order to answer a question such as yours one would have to have been educated through a course or study guide of some type.At this point in time I couldn't answer confidently between the two most likely answers without refering to my illustrated code book.

      Are you currently studying for your licence,if so hows it going?

                so this site is for all people to ask for help and there is no reason to tell them to get a pro ,try to help them .

                        My master plumber lol`s at me when I ask him some of this stuff.


                        Yes I`m studying for my license. I took my test last week and got 88%. I was kinda bummed but from some of the stories I`v heard I guess that`s not to bad. Next week I go for my Septic License, I was told that I will ace that one???? I`m always learning something new every day

                          ACS,that is not true here in my area,there are countless upon COUNTLESS pipe slappers who have been in the trade well over 10 years and don't even know how to communicate with a plumber through isometric drawings

                          How does what you say happen in your area?

                            Around here we have babysitters (City inspectors) and they look for your truck at a house and stop to see if you are doing something you shouldn't be doing. I get checked on all the time.

                              In California one does not need to have a contractor's license if the job is $500.00 or less. That is why we have hundreds of non-licensed turd chasers running around in beat up 1978 Nissons with a fifty year old snake rolling around in the bed. These guys are a detriment to the trade because they don't know anything about plumbing.

                                There are many types of people in this world,
                                Some who don't give a #$%^, about anything and do not care, they may have worked thousands and thousands of Hours doing things, and possibly learned enough to pass a test, but could not think a situation out on there own, if there life depended on it. (they may even be able to quote the code book chapter and verse), (some of these type of people hold licences and some do not)

                                There are those who do care study and learn, and are sharp, and understand the WHY of how things work, and Have common sense, (a rare commodity today), but some have it, and can by instinct seem to know if something is done right or wrong, and can do a good job of many jobs, no they may not know the book line for line, but I bet they know when to seek out the answer, when in doubt. (some of these type of people hold licences and some do not)


                                yes experience is one of the best teachers out there, but one must pay attention to it to learn from it.

                                there are licenced HACKS and there are unlicensed PROS, the paper work does not make you a PRO any more than the lack of it makes one a HACK,

                                (example) I held a Waste water and Water Treatment operators licence, in one state, I studied and worked to learn what I needed to know and to do the job right, went and took the test, passed it, and was licenced.
                                later I was talking to some one and was asked "why did you study", I replied so "I could pass the test and receive the licence to operate the plant where I was employed at", and he said "didn't you know that if you fail the test (three times) they have to give you one any way because you have have one",
                                I later learned that the state had passed a law that All operators had to be licensed, but the licence was handed out even if you never passed the test, only that you took it three times. as that is how the person before me received his licence.

                                Now I know that is not the way it is in most situations, you have to pass the test, but I also know you can buy or down load sample tests off the net in many trades, and usually take them many times. and you need Hours,

                                and I have a SIL who is a Journeyman electrician and will be soon taking his masters test, and I have a few other "friends" who are either journeyman or masters, as well,
                                I ask my SIL and he knows WHY you do something, not jsut to do it.
                                and has called the engineers on mistakes and problems,

                                He THINKS,

                                MY other "friends", they don't have the foggiest idea why they are doing something, it is either that was the way I was shown or quotes chapter and verse of the book, but the why he has no idea, there is a difference in people.

                                This young man is coming into a forum that is mostly responded by people in the know, it is not "Aunt Mary's home and garden board",
                                there is no reason to attack him for asking a question, and accusing him of being a HACK for wanting to find out the legalities are for his desires,

                                IF HE DID NOT CARE and want to do the correct things he would not be asking here.

                                There is no doubt that he has things yet learn, and I think all of us can say the same thing, and any one who does think they know it all, (I definitely know they have things yet to learn.)

                                JUST AN OPINION,
