Default Hello

Hello Guys , been lurking on here for a while . I am a licensed plumber in Illinois for the last 33 years . Worked for Roto-Rooter for over 20 years and then went out on my own . Have done mostly residential, light commercial work . Have cleaned more drains than you could imagine . Apprenticed for 5 years and then passed my test the first try . Do mostly repair/service work with some remodeling mixed in . I work by myself and like it . I am the only one that gets rewarded and the only one to blame when things go south .


I read all the posts in Winners , WOW !!!!! Tango I feel I can relate with you . Don't have a lot of time to spend on here but will try to throw my 2 cents in when I can .


Tudor Vents ? you got to be kidding me . No go in the land of Lincoln .
Why do they call them Street Fittings ? first fitting at the street ?


First boss told me this my first day as I was climbing in the van
Only need to know 3 things to be a plumber
Crap rolls down hill
Hot is always on the left

A street fitting has two sides, a hub and a spigot/street end. You always point the street end towards....the street!


Glad to have you by the way, hope you stick around. You seem worth keeping.
