Stop complaining about people liking poop toys. Instead turn it around and look at it this way. If people like playing with poop toys the kids might be less afraid of it and more likely to someday consider a job as a plumber. We need the kids to take interest in the trade even if it is through a nonconventional way like poop toys.

True, but that has never been the case when I've seen it attempted. Just like in this scenario, they only wrapped the threads, and both cold connections at the add-a-tee leaked. New supplies are better at sealing than a sh!tty job of teflon tape. Then again, passing new flex supplies through an insulated wall and out another isn't exactly easy to do.

Like most "keeping up with the neighbors" type things, they don't use the sink much at all, so I just ended up disconnecting the outside sink, capping the tee, and removing the add-a-tees. Told the HO that the drain arm and supply lines need to be redone properly.

What if the fad just ends up making the kids have an odd fetish instead of an interest in plumbing?

on compression, I dope both the threads and ferrel and dont have leaks unless the ferrel is damaged..

when I take a compression fitting apart but dont replace it, I wrap a few times around the compressed ferrel with teflon tape to make a seal when reassembling it...

I dare you you to get your wife a poop cushion for Valentines and see what she says.

If she doesn't think you are completely nut you are going say it's good for removing the fear of plumbing?
