        If the industry keeps up like its going, the whole "licensed plumber" thing will be a thing of the past,

        I URGE everyone to stop using pex , that is one way to save the industry

        Another is for all your formans and mechanics to be more friendly to the new guys , so younger guys will be interested in this trade more,

          The neuritic plaques on the brain in Alzheimers patients contain high traces of Aluminum. State & A.O. Smith-Aluminum based anodes. I avoid them when possible.

          I'd read a lot on this over the years, mainly there's a bit of concern with spray deoderant having aluminum compounds in them...I switched to roll-on.

          It occurs to me...PEX is cross linked PE, it's cross linked with aluminum.

            I don't know where exactly the industry will go, but currently it is leaning towards cheap, easy DIYer products and eventually 'greener' technology.

            Wherever it goes... I will adapt to the market and continue to make good money servicing people's plumbing. Speaking of adapting to new technology and the market, I just recently expanded my drain-cleaning end of busness, I just bought a seesnake and scout locator...it arrived friday, I sold a $4000 sewer on the same day and bid on 2 others.

              Good job way to make a dent in that seesnake cost.
