            Re: hack

            a couple months back, i had a homeowner bring me in to install a toto neorest $$$ toilet/ bidet. she didn't trust the general contractor for good reasons.

            of course while i was there she had me snake out a new pedestal lav they installed the ruff on. the lav was connected to the tub vent that was well over 50 years old with durham fittings and vent 90's. not only was it too small for wet venting, it was plugged solid. they went and removed the abs fittings from the gal vent line so i could access the line.

            then it got interesting they actually used a 1.5'' abs tee with the gal pipe shoved into the abs socket and a 2'' x 1.5'' n.h band holding all together the 2'' was banded on the od of the hub

            of course soon after that fiasco, the home owner fired them and who knows what is behind the walls of the tub, shower and other lav

            i know i took a couple photos, i just need to dig them out of my phone

                WOW. At least the hacks around me have enough sense to use a no-hub coupling, though most plumbers scratch their head when it comes to using the approved adapter fitting on PVC that is needed to comply with code.

                  our supply houses here hadn't ever heard of such a thing. It amazes me that our inspectors are as ignorant as they are.
                  they even let people use regular stud guards rather than nail plates

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