          There are many gems in that photo album but this one is my favorite

          It has it all going on. Saddle tapped waste, duct taped joints, Ferncos galore, and the sant tee facing down was the icing on the cake

                It depends on weather you served your apprenticeship and journeymanship, under a master plumber or a master butcher. I know some fine licensed plumbers and some fine unlicensed plumbers. Persons not knowing how to do something can be taught. Persons who knows and don't give a **** are the real dangerous ones. All work should be inspected period no exceptions. If it don"t pass keep trying till you get it right. The inspectors know who they have to watch closely, the same ones that try to cut corners on every job. Licensing is one way of proving that you passed a test and know what you are doing and that you are insured. Make the fine about $15,000.00 for not pulling a permit and getting it inspected for the first offense and 50 grand for the next time. A $5000.00 reward for the rat upon conviction. That would eliminate 98% of the hacks, butchers, handymen, etc. But the whining liberal mf's would never pass something like this it seems like any one with a hack saw and a can of glue is a plumber. That job picture posted in the first post that person should be caned in public.

                      I am certain that on the other side of the basement you will find flexible duct arranged in multiple crazy S configurations and collared together by stuffing one flex inside the other flex with liberal application of duct tape as well as shipping tape.

                        Probably more than half of those were done with the help of Home Depot, and the uncle or neighbor that knew what they were doing. I gotta agree with you on the licensing. Contrary to the other posts, I have seen a lot of hack work that looks like what is found in your pictures, but I have never seen anyone with a license do work like in your pictures. Sometimes things are regulated for a reason.

                          Good post devine. I know you have taken a lot of heat for being unlicensed, but you have been at least very honest about it. Look forward to meeting you at the roundup.

                            I think you are 100% right, but on the other hand in most cases who are they hurting. If I were to do work like that in my own house I am going to have problems and I am going to cause damamge to my house. Who is the government to tell me that I cant **** up my own house. Now, if the job is done for a customer I can see this being an issue. I do think that if someone wants to have an unlicensed person do work they should be allowed. (ie a family member or friend) I guess this is why in some areas the home owner can pull permits on their own property.

                              The problem is, when you sell the house and the new homeowners get stuck with the code violations. The private home inspectors that I have seen rarely catch plumbing problems, because most of them don't know squat about plumbing codes. I see it all the time. I walk into to a customer's house and see atrocious code-violations. "But we had an inspection, and they didn't tell us about this."
