Lord only knows how much they got charged for this outdoor shower and the jagoff who put it in couldn't be bothered to peel off the extra teflon tape or caulk/putty/escutcheon the holes through the siding. They used stainless deck screws for the bracket to the wall so I assume a carpenter was around or they would have used drywall screws like the lazy jagoff they are.


I was there to replace a burst chrome 90 because the line coming through had a drain inside but wasn't pitched correctly. I am sure the bathroom exhaust fan inside that room was also pulling nice cold air past the pipe because the penetration was twice the size of the pipe and not caulked.



The last picture is the cracked 90 going into the wall.

Crap yesterday's post disappeared! Anyway I think it's an apprentice plumber who did this side job with stolen commercial pipe from his day job. Then he put the nut under the sink. I had to remove the sink completely to take the faucet out. Grrrrr.

My cousin sent me this one. He was called out for a gas smell. I guess one step glue doesn’t always work.

You'd be surprised a lot of guys don't know how or it's too difficult for them. I once worked at building an olympic size swimming pool and I had to calculate the 45's for one guy, 12" PVC fittings that is, at a cost of 2400$ each. The guy was holding it up over his head on shaky arms telling his helper to measure in between and eyeball it.

I think it was a Pfissster, the customer tried to repair the hose themselves for 4 months, they bought 4 different hoses and non of them fit! All those parts cost half of a new faucet. She didn't suggest I keep the unused parts.
