  • Hacktown revisited

    I thought I would throw a Hacktown post together for JC:-)


    Yup, The old Radiator hose Sink Drain... The house flipper could not understand why I was taking a pic of this gem:-)


    PVC gasline under the newly enclosed deck DOH!!!



    Plumber says "Framer Dude this toilet stub is supposed to be centered in this opening"

    Framer says " Cant you use one of those crooked flange things to center it up we busted this layout by 6"

    Plumber chuckles and writes GC an estimate to move the stub to cover his framers boo boo... Framer moved the walls:-)


    I could not resist, I had to answer!!!! Internet optimization from Bangladesh for the win!!!!

      Was there anything wrapped around the stub out for the toilet or do you usually stub w/ 4" and put the flange inside?

                    I'll post my contributions here too.

                    This one isn't so much hack as WTF? Yes, i'm sure you'd like me to find out why you have no hot water, but How am I supposed to get there from here?

                    These two are the same job, Local convenience store called because their toilet was leaking. I get there, see a moldy caulk line around the base, and figure "wax ring, this will be quick."
                    I pull the toilet, Well crap, that wax ring is so new it's still in the plastic!

                    Oh, it gets better, Flanges are over rated. if one breaks off apparently you can just use anchor bolts to hold the stool down.

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