Girl in her 20’s bought her first house. She had a home inspection done, which is a joke around here, other than my home inspector. Seller replaced the roof on the garage and replaced the 29y/o heater. Closed last Thursday. Friday started moving in. Once they started eating dinner and it was somewhat quiet they could hear water running. Brother opened up the crawl to find a foot of water. So they called the water company to shut it off at the curb because they didn’t know how to shut water down.

We had our builder swing by to take a look too. The crawl isn’t crawlable so we ran water overhead and he needs to build a chase. All three exterior doors need to be fixed/replaced. Plus a number of other hack work on his side.

Once we got water back on we flushed and tested. And the brand new Delta kitchen faucet is leaking from the valve body!

I feel sorry for her! All of her savings and $4k on her credit card to buy it. Mortgage? Not sure. But she bought a nice looking house, had it inspected and ended up buying a pig with lipstick!

Talking with her agent, who referred us said pull the permits, take before and after pics, have it inspected and send her the bill.

Finally started leaking! I installed it two years ago. Same bar that I pulled the scissors out of the toilet.

Edit: it did fall apart when I pulled it.

Well I had a sh*ty day today. The first two went well. Third job was replacing a stack in a college rental. We had to open both sides of the wall, so I moved a mini fridge and the kids had a bunch of crap that had fallen between the fridge. Moved just enough of the stuff out of the way. Had to run out to the truck for something, came back an one of the girls had moved all their stuff out of the way. So while getting the stack into place I went to get my flashlight but it wasn’t in the holster. Only thing I can think think of is the girl grabbed it with the rest of her crap. Maintenance guy is supposed to get it from her.

But the last job cheered me up a bit. Different company, maintenance guy remodeled an apartment He couldn’t figure out why the hot wouldn’t turn off. When he put the cartridge in he was missing the hot gasket. He used a shrkbite for the tub spout. He put the kitchen faucet in backwards, hot and cold were right, but with the faucet backwards hot was on the right. I didn’t get to take a picture of the kitchen drain before my Master had ripped it out.
