Default 1.4

Another residential repipe. This one was cool as the home owner showed me 2 estimate quotes from local competitor's. I love when I am the highest priced and still get the job. Which snowballed onto the 1st floor kitchen sink, bathroom sink and the dishwasher. There is nothing like an additional $2000 at the end of the day.

Really stretching the W/M drain hose a bit there, huh?

Don't worry, the zip tie will never fail and let it pop out and flood the basement

That's to get a spiff from his appliance repair guy when he gets to install a new washer pump.

I've replaced cast flanges, and a section of 5" cast. Beyond that... cast iron work is too expensive and costly in every day use here unless required by code.

We use CI a lot because people with money don't like to hear plumbing noises. No big deal. We also use 80psi couplings on occasions. The ones we use (Clamp ALL) only have two bands which makes for a quicker install.

See hear Clamp Alls are the 4 banded clamps.. No Hub bands are the 2... We always use the 4 banded or more on storm.. 2 band on DWV. We occasionally use the 4band for transition from PVC underground, to CI... Rather then the adapter.
When you do commercial, and it's a plenum cieling, we are required to use CI for fire rating. So another reason besides noise reduction.

I do cast because it is easier. If anything needs to be serviced I can remove and reinstall any piece. It is a "husky" clamp. In the townships around here you can put no hub with huskies in the ground. And definatlly above ground also. When I do a job like this which typically run $4700. It get done in one day with out a drop of glue any where. Defiantly a superior material compared to pvc. And put together extremely sturdy thanks to proper bracing and the "husky" clamps.

If you put up enough hangers , and in the right spots cast isn't bad.. But 15' up in the air, using a step ladder.. Not Fun.

Plumbus my mind is blown. Since the start of my apprenticeship, every plumber I have worked for has called the 4 banded clamps, clamp alls. And the 2 banded no hub. I worked for a few different shops, and hall guys here, all of them call the 4 banded clamp alls. Im pretty sure the foreman even call Ferguson, and order clamp alls and the heavy duty couplings show up.
