I had to fix a pin hole at someone's house. When I opened the water we saw another pin hole. That's when I removed another tile to see the pipe had already been repaired.

I think the apprentice used too much flux 25 years ago and way too much fire burning the floor above. Also the 2 lines are against the ceiling and staples are probably punched somewhere else. I might get a re-pipe job when his parents are back from vacation. Plus the main valve is leaking.

The yellow blob is where the pin hole is. I wonder what it is too.

Got a call this morning for a bath install and faucet estimate. I gave him my regular response, to send pictures or a one hour charge and credit if I go check it out. He took my email and said he would send some pics.

During the day I had some errands and when I came back home with my regular truck I saw a couple in their 50's/60's who were snooping at the very end of the driveway in my backyard. It didn't suffice for them to knock on the front door, to realize no one is answering to leave the premises.

I asked them what was up and the man showed me the instructions of the faucet and wanted a price on the spot! The woman insisted for a price. I said I'm not giving out a price out of thin air, you won't be happy if the price doubles once I'm the spot.

What is this $hit, people coming to my house and this is the second time too. On every single page of my website on top of the address it is clearly written not open to the public. I seriously felt harassed on this one because they had no right to go out back.


Just to point out an opposite situation, a woman last week asked me to install the rough in for a non existent powder room, sight unseen, and done hourly. I did the job and she was happy. She's going to call me to replace the basement tub in the coming months.

Why is your personal address on the website? Doesn't cananiduh have p.o. boxes? I would have freaked on those people and told them to gtfo my lawn and don't call me for at least a couple weeks.

Those were already there, I found out after the first pinhole that the line had been cut out in a few places already. My first joint I soldered but when I found a second hole I used an SB coupling, it took forever to stop dripping.

You don't keep sweat unions or pex adapters on the van? Even with a real good drip I can usually solder on one half of a union, a pex adapter, a ball valve, or a female tee. The next step is to tin both nipples and the fitting. If you still can't get it then use propress or I guess sharkbite.


I understand you don't have propress, it is a lot of money and I can't say I would buy one either.

1st of all it's better for S.E.O purposes and second it's obligatory to have an address on my work orders(on websites I'm not sure but I'm probably obliged to). I don't like it one bit, it shows every burglar and nut where I live. Even if I didn't have an address just putting my number in a browser shows my address from many places including public records of my licence from the pipe mechanics(obligatory address available for the public to see)

My girlfriend made me realize they could of opened the catio to see the cat and let the cat escape. I wasn't too happy they were in the back and they were literally looking around.

No unions and propress is nonsense for what I do. If you think it's expensive for you guy I bet you could double the price over here including fittings.

Water was dripping in the wall, the quicker I got it done the less damage to the drywall too. Last but not least in some cases I try to go quick as I know some might not have the full amount to pay and when they don't have enough that's when some of them start a tantrum.
