    Repent Your Sins Here

    My brothers forgive me for I have sinned....

    My van has not been cleaned in over a month
    I use a Ridgid Seesnake without a recording device
    I may not have caulked every new toilet to the floor
    I was coersed into bribing an inspector to pass my poor workmanship
    I have used a Ridgid K-60 and still prefer my drum machine *Gasp!*
    I have sweated adapters on water heaters after tightening
    I use Nokorode water soluble flux everyday
    I have used an air admittance valve when I didn't have to
    I have used a flat rate system but still believe in T&M
    When I was unable to diagnose a no heat problem I changed the most expensive part and crossed my fingers

    This redemtion thing does work. I feel so much better now.

    What are your sins?

    I admit to having made a trip or two to the supply, fully knowing I have the part, just not wanting to dive into the dark nether regions of the mobile abyss.

    Ummm, I was doing a full on remodel a few years back and had 2 helpers and myself. we were demo for a re drain and I asked them to pull the toilets, they did not and we broke all the drains apart underneath, well the next morning the painters were working and a few other trades, seems like they all dropped their kids off at the pool before they started working (took large craps and flushed with buckets) using the hose bibb the nice plumber left out for them from the meter.

    Well, to say the least, the 2 helpers got to crawl under the house and clean it up.

    I ran to much 1" copper once cause I was to lazt to crawl out and get the 3/4"

    Sometimes my 2 part waste and disposal arm are crooked.

    Sometimes I strap my vents and waters to tight

    Sometimes I have used k-tite on plastic cause I wanted to make sure I was never gonna have to go back for a leak

    Thats just plain cruel.
    Having been on a few sites with jack_sses like that, it makes me all warm n' fuzzy imagining the guy whining as he tries to find one.

    We had an apprentice a few years back that used to think he was the toughest thing since Arnie, he'd bully folks when he didn't want to do the dirt work.
    He crossed the line once with a newer apprentice by handing him a shovel and telling him to dig, then wandered off to "more important" things.
    At the end of the day after he'd put all his tools in his bucket, the foreman called him over to talk.
    The next morning his tools were almost completely stuck to the bottom of his bucket, somehow a can of glue found it's way in there and had enough time to partially dry overnight.
    We never did figure out how that happened.

    Re: Repent Your Sins Here

    Not too long ago, we had a project where a Engineer called for "studor" vents above a ceiling. This is a return air plenum.

    I was proud that my guys in the field caught the error; I told them to install per contract documents with no exceptions on this job.

    History: A few months prior to this, the engineer made my life a living hell as well as the building owners over weather a control was factory installed or not on a chiller. Not going to bore anyone with the details, but this delayed start-up by almost 7 weeks.

    Anyway, the city inspector did not catch the vents on his "top-out" inspection. However, he did find out about them from a "little bird" and red-flagged the project in a big way.

    The architect was furious with me, that is until I pointed out the construction details. I wont say how much I charged to change all this out and actually put in vent stacks (4 story office complex), furr outs by the GC etc. but lets say the engineer never collected one cent of his fee.

    Regards,
