  • Re: Can i buy a couple wax rings off ya?

    now please dont take this the wrong way just asking now you say a nonlicensed plumber cant remove and reinstal a toilet cause of the seal of the wax ring I ask whats the diffrens with that and a p-trap when you remove a p-trap you are removeing the seal {the ruber gasket} and reinstalling it and you dont need a PL to do that now if you case was do to the fact that he has to disconect the water supply line on the toilet to mee that makes it a diferent story cause yes the tile guy is not a PL and should not be disconecting any water suply lines to fictures but no one has brought that up now please I am not trying to harp on you just asking your appinion on that point cause thats why I whould stand by you on this part as for the wax ring and seal I see that as just like the P-trap

        When you get in town email me. I still have friends on the board and I will recommend that they either reciprocate with your license or let you do an informal interview.

            how about the $3000.00 toto neorest i partially installed
            the gc/ tile man attempted to install the toilet but stopped as the owner knew better. of course they installed a 1/2'' comp angle stop on a glass tile wall problem is the toto requires a fip for the monster stop it takes.

            noting like using a ridgid internal cutter to cut the copper 1'' behind the glass tile and then having to solder it inside the wall

            of course they also forgot the front plastic block that the toilet fastens to.

            3 hours later include the 1/2 hours hands on tutorial for using the nasa rocket toilet

            best part is she's going in for a colonoscopy in 2 days and will put it to work

            scary part is she's having it done at my buddies surgical center.

              I dont hesitate to tell a tile man that setting toilets and installing shower pans is not part of their job...When they argue....I've told several that they are idiots...on the phone and in person
