  • Cleetus and Jethrow Plumbing INC.

    So I get this call today, the owner says he needs a plumber not an emergency mind you but sooner is better, I tell him I can do a drive by @ 9:30 am and we would devise a game plan.

    I show up and this is what I find...



    We discuss his delima, washers flooded last night, corridor and unit next door, I tell him I have time at noon and will need ot move the washers and pull the sheetrock to get a better look @ what is going on, I know this is gonna be bad.

    I get back @ noon pull the washers and remove the rock and this is what I found...



    I do love my job...

    Went right down and purchased a bag-o-ferncos

          i think those guys are from rankin.

          the only difference is that now they're covering up their hack work.

            Not just any body could make so many pipes end up in the same place that is a planned hack job...and he was a carpenter too

                So how are the fixture units going to drain into the existing waste.I think the fixture units bump up to six (FU) per machine in this case.

                If you find my mini cutters I'd like them back.

                  guys,

                  my girlfriend tammy said "oh my God" when she saw this hack job.

                  she knows almost nothing about plumbing but knows enough to know that's just wrong.

                      The owner did not plumb this, but he found out what $35 an hour will get you in todays market, we are negotiating the resolution at this point, it is on slab.

                          Interesting!
                          Owner: why not "t" both new ones into the same stand pipe... save money on that long run of pipe?

                          Cletus: Cuz its aginst code to put too much in the pipe without a 8 foot detour.

                            Whats wrong with indirectly.....indirectly draining washing machines?

                            The problem with plumbing is it works even when installed like crap. for this reason the hacks get away with doing liket his.

                              You'd need a bathtub sized floor sink with a 4" drain to indirect that many washers.
