    Re: WTF-pics

    I wish I would have taken a picture, but I left the part with the homeowner. She woke up this morning with wet carpet in the kitchen. Yesterday her grandson and his wife did her a favor by replacing her kitchen sink faucet in her modular home. Good thing they had a guy at Home Depot giving them some advice. In order to adapt to the 1/2" quest pipe that he cut off, he cut the 3/8" compression ends off of the premanufactured supplies, stuck the cut ends of the vinyl supply tubes into the quest and simply clamped them together with two hose clamps.
    Distractions are everywhere, don't lose sight of your dream.

      Every time I go into Lowe's I overhear some completely clueless person asking advice about how to fix something that is WAY over their heads. What you described goes through my head when I overhear some of the stupidity of some of the DIYers. (both questions and answers at the big-box stores!)

      I almost want to hand them my business card and say, "Do yourself a favor and hire a pro, so you don't flood your house." But I resist because usually the types who try to do things themselves that they don't understand are super-cheap anyway.

          maybe they just aren't very fond of individuals who charge small fortunes for what in many cases are relatively simple projects and leave an absolutely incredible mess behind them when these alledged pros proclaim the job "Done"! i have found that many pros view a customers home as only a job and fail to realize it is where the customer lives. and the absolute disdain for their surroundings many pros demonstrate during the course of a job is one reason i believe many people attempt repairs themselves.
          there's a solution to every problem.....you just have to be willing to find it.

            it sounds like you've hired the wrong "pro's", and it may seem like a small fortune to you but when its shared with fuel,insurance,advertisement,materials,and taxes there isnt a lot of the pie left, my only advice to you is get atleast 3 estimates and then make your choice

                  Because the response you gave to Service Guys post doesn't seem "plumberish". So are you a plumber???

                      A licensed plumber would know the answer to that. What's your license number?

                          Tell me your plumbing license number and I'll tell you if it's a restricted forum.

                          Or any license number for that matter. Electrical, HVAC, Boiler, General Contractor, Engineer, Veterinarian,

                              I am licensed and insured, educated and qualified. I legally guarantee my work in writing, and if it fails I'll redo it for free and if there is any property damage my insurance will cover it. I never leave a mess, I wear shoe covers and use drop clothes, I do top quality work and I am available 24 hours/day and most people love it.

                              I AM A PROFESSIONAL PLUMBER.

                              And yes, this forum is restricted, did you read the subforum title?
                              I'll remind you:
