I think I'm going to order a bunch of Dunce hats and give them out like candy.

I told him a dye test that's odd. "I called 20 plumbers and no one does that."...
Me neither!

Usually these guys don't call me back but he did today and wanted an appointment for a camera inspection. The city told him bla bla bla not their problem. The house can't be sold because of problems... He then says it has to be done for my client. I said what!? Who's going to pay the bill?

It's going to be the notary so and so. "Have the home owners call me, I don't do 3rd party, 4th party,"

I'm not a circus manager working for peanuts and why didn't he hire the big companies. There must be a reason and try his con on a little guy.



Then this afternoon another guy calls asking how much for a water heater install, he say it can't be more than a 100$-200$.
just tell him no problem, you need a $5000.00 retainer like lawyers get because you dont know what you will run into and when thats close to being used up you will bill for another retainer..that usually sends them off and never to call back..

her purse is empty because she spent the last few grand on some other luxury she has, I add 20% on for those people that cry poverty but have 2 or 3 brand new cars infront of their 5000 sqft house that was just built....

I talked to a guy on the phone and he gave me a 5/5 star review!

He stated I helped him on the phone and he was able to make up his mind.(whatever that is?) then he wrote ; It would of been easier just to come out and hundreds of dollars to come out.


I'll accept that, I just don't remember him though.

many times they crack the fitting, apply a little heat and the glue softens and you can get out the small piece in the fitting nice n easy..

The Golden shredder is actually really good quality and I have used it many times and never had any issues.

I have another brand that seemed deluxe but it creates so much heat it distorts and pokes a hole on the side of the hub. So I bought the cheap ones which are better!

I looked them up, PRICEY...but I think a day in the shop and I can make them, I have plenty of those carbide cutters that I use on my metal lathe, some steel pipe and a few cross pieces , tap 4 of the cross pieces for the carbides..could be a fun project...ill see how motivated I am..lol...but I like the heat method, I have taken out almost every piece I needed that way in a few minute or less, just cut pvc like getting a broken nipple out of a pipe fitting, heat and grap with channel locks and just roll it out of the fitting and your done...
