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???


.
you should have handed the **** tape to customer in front of his wife and said you found it in the ceiling.......
then watch the fireworks show...


as for the cap, I have seen many copper caps with cracks or defects from the way they are made, even spaces like that at the end, solder usually fills the hole, but wont last as long as the copper and you get a leak, I wont use any that are questionable and they go in the mongo pile..

Yeah, but what if the tape belongs to the teenage son? Poor kid..

There is an urban legend about a veterinarian who did surgery on a chronically vomiting dog to find a pair of lace panties. He hands them to the clients when they come to pick up the dog, and the wife looks at them and says that they aren't hers. Oops!

Very likely to be true. A buddy of mine had a couple of pits, and when he got married the male dog got really sick. Turned out he eat her panties.

I'm betting that a teenager wouldn't know what a VHS tape is without googling it, or what to do with one if they did see one. And if there is a teenager out there in this day and age that is watching VHS p0rn or using VHS for other reasons, I would be extremely surprised.

Good plumbing isn't cheap and cheap plumbing certainly isn't good. Proof is here.

I talked with a retired service plumber yesterday who works at HD he told me he's had 3 customers bring in house plans for an estimate. I laughed my face off.

I'm about to bring a stool and watch the show for an afternoon.
