  • A customer gave me the boot today...

    Customer was very proud of his work and wanted to show me he was also a plumber " he needed me for my equipment not my skill"....

    All I could do was laugh...With tears running down my face he asked me to leave....

    What did he call you out for?

    I want all the juicy details of both sides of the conversation.
    Anyway, glad you stood your ground...

        He wanted to use me for my K-60

        He had a Branch B/U ( cleanout in the basement).

          Did he use CPVC glue? Looks like DWV glue in the pic?

              The sad part is that the guy probably felt like he accomplished something. Look honey, water runs, who needs a plumber? I hear that all the time.

                Just think, soon that DIY contraption is going to be concealed in the wall. Out of sight, out of mind, until....???

                      Looks like he is equally as good a plumber as he is a carpenter, drywaller and electrician. Hate to be the guy that moves in after he is done renovating

                            That's exactly what I was talking about. The guy probably owns the house and thinks he can do whatever he wants and bury that crap in the wall for the next guy.

                              How am I suppose to adjust the water temperature while I'm laying down in the tub making shampoo horns?
