Are you going to patch it?
Outer drum is going into the scrap pile. I’ll save the inner drum, any salvageable parts. I have at least 2 more drums other than the one I put on for today’s jobs.

This 1/2 test cap ruptured after an unknown number of years and ruining a portion of the basement floor. diy test cap???? The homeowner was getting on my nerves, he was price shopping but I got the job because I could show up. However he was complaining about the amount of time I was predicting. The main valve wasn't holding either, damn it! A plumber had told him to have it wapped out but he was cheap. Then the wife was asking a bunch of question and she didn't understand. I wouldn't guarantee the repair either, the pipe was all corroded just like the other job.

Don't call me for a repipe because it was obvious a cheap guy in a very well off house house.. Looks like pulling all the floor isn't enough.

Bonus!! Check the pics closely is that a p.o.rn tape hidden in the ceiling joists???

Either 220 volts or 120V 10awg or something like that. I think they used a piece to hold the ducts as a hanger or something.

Ok, so tell me you at least looked at the tape and remember the name of the video. I still have a vhs p0rn tape from my younger years that I found in an alley dumpster in our old neighborhood. It was Red Serrano if anyone want to look it up, pretty good from what I remember.

Are those ceiling panels easily removable to be able to have somewhat easy access to that tape? Kinda looks like they would be. Makes me wonder if it belongs to the current HO or previous. Wonder what really is on it. Did you point it out to the HO? If possible, get in contact with the HO and ask for the tape, if successful then send it to me, I still have a vcr that still works. I bet Red Serrano is still stuck in it right now.

Oh, it's red, the flashlight made it look pink. Our wires are white for 14 or red for 12(not 100% sure). Maybe some yellow but I'm not sure

Yes, how can you leave us hanging like that and not tell us what was on the tape? Maybe it's the one where the plumber shows up and the woman's husband is at work!

The best I can do is give you his phone number so he can share the tape.
