  • Just when i thought i've seen it all

    6 month old bathroom remodel done by a general contractor (sorry tool)

    went to fix a disposal in the kitchen and the customer showed me their pedestal sink in the new bathroom. along with their remote controlled spa tub.

    the sink had a tight pop up and i went to reach under it to loosen the ball and nut assembly. what i then saw blew me out of the water

    literally in the better part of 100,000 sinks i've installed or worked on, this takes the cake

    went to the truck to get my real camera

    owner was going to hire them for the other bathroom. i think i just prevented that yes they had a city permit and inspections

    did i fix it? no just took pictures and told them to call thier general contractor to fix his work

    so have fun and see if you can figure it out. joey was very close but not dead on

    rick.

        I spent too much time thinking about the tight pop up, then it hit me.

            I`m not sure; but from what I can see, Does she have a problem getting any water out of the tap/faucet spout. Those flexi hoses look a little spaggetti and actually connected to the wrong part. Although this is the great US of A so anything is possible.

              No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                  I got it, but you said it's been that way for 6 months and working? I guess it doesn't matter which way you hook them up it still works? hmm

                    I would answer but that would spoil Rick's fun.

                      It's not the way to install it but I guess it would still work and has been for 6 months. Lot's of pressure on those stem orings 24/7 though! I think I would have shut off the stops since I was aware of it, that thing could blow at any time. LOL

                        Reminds me of the scene in A Plumbing We Will Go where Curley turns on the tap and water comes out of the drain and hits him in the face.

                            Probably kinked the hoses doing it the other way.
