  • Do as I say, not as I do....

    These pics are from a job I was called too recently.

    Do you spot any code problems related to the IPC?

    Thanks.

    Wow, what a mess. Is this a DIYer gone bad?

        My only comment JC, is that your craftsmanship has improved immensely. You still have a ways to go but you're doing better.

          I have looked at my own work afterwards and at times thinking it looked bad and could use improvement.

          And you suck.

            It depends, do you mean the undersized wet vent, the san-tee, the AAVs or that abortion of a stack? There's probably more but I would have to look again.

              At least 3 items per picture but one went as high as 5

              A handyman nightmare...

                Really looking for all. I see many myself but sure I miss some and it helps me recognize them in the future.

                Thanks.

                  Yup..... I noticed the wet vent, the FLAT runs with no grade, clever use of 45's, san tee on it's back, and the fancy venting!

                    i'm going to add the lack of midstory guides to the list. and the pex being supported by the same supports as the pvc. presumably 4 foot apart.
                    No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

                      Ok, I'll let you in on who was the installer. The thread title gives a hint.

                      This was installed by one of the most aggravating-by-the-book inspectors you'll ever run into. He was doing side work out of his inspection area.

                      I'm thinking of sending the pictures to the state.

                      Or at least posting them in the local plumbing supply houses.

                              Some over 4 foot.
