I'm too lazy to scroll through all those pages. Are there any plumbing items on the list?

There's a paper on the counter of our supply house talking about the Waste King disposals. I almost installed one, but didn't like it so I told the HO to take it back and get his money back.

A plumber was electrocuted touching an electric stove. Wow. That is really bad news.

A Rochester, N.H., plumber died of an accidental electrocution while working in a condominium building earlier this month. David Dufresne Jr., 52, was a self-employed plumber when he suffered the fatal accident on the sixth floor inside apartment number 2.

According to a report from Seacoast Online, it appeared Dufresne was installing a dishwasher at the time. The public police log noted city inspectors were on scene at the building after police detectives cleared. Deputy City Manager Nancy Colbert Puff said that the city’s electrical inspector, John Plourde, had returned to the scene "to gain a better understanding as to what might have occurred."

"According to his observation, it appears that the deceased was in the process of installing a dishwasher, however, it also appears that the electrocution was not related to any electrical work being performed," she told Seacoast Online. "Instead, he observed that the cord to the recently installed (cooking) range was not installed per manufacturer’s recommended instructions. In the end, it appears that when the deceased was installing a copper line to the dishwasher, he made contact with the range, which did not have a ground fault path back to the overcurrent device, and ultimately resulted in his tragic passing."

OSHA is investigating.

I pulled this previous post off of the internet.

That is really sad news. I cannot imagine that.

Each time I am underneath a house in the crawl space, I think of laying on an exposed electrical wire and being electrocuted, but not working in someone's kitchen.

It's very sad. People are very inconsiderate when it comes to terms with how dangerous the plumbing trade is. Saddest this is, is that people will gripe about the cost of your services but when you associate the danger and ask if they'd do the same thing, their answer is no.

I remember being in a puddle under a house cutting a galvanized line with a saws all which had a short in it's cord. I had no problem, as long as I held on to the plastic parts only.

I just had that experinece in some 5 unit dump we have to work in two weeks ago.....

the crawl space full of water and sewage and there are cables and wires laying in the water all over the place... spider webs...ect .....

I wore my salmon waders but still you are not really safe fooking around
in the water....

I did the work but they got charged a good stiff $3500 for the time and troubles fixing 4 different leaks...

I got a 1 million life insurance policy on me so if I fry the
family will probably throw a party

I've battled with a directional bored gas line for an hour before jetting and b&w video.
