true, and 60 or 70 years ago the plumbing worked just as good without all these codes, and if plumbed with modern materials the same way they would work better and longer..so a rhetorical question..why all the codes and rules today? and from the difference in codes just in this country alone also poses the question of why all the differences and who proves what works best..I personally feel its just a revenue generated system..look at the fees for permits and inspections....and in the last 100 years the amount of taxes we have now and didnt back then, now they call them a friendlier fee not a tax..same difference if it is coming out of my pocket..

100% This.

I feel this way the most about electric water heaters. Why the heck do we need an inspection on an electric water heater replacement? If it's existing there, why not put it back the way it was?

Maybe the homeowner can't afford all of the bells and whistles that comes with an inspection, and then guess what happens? They tell you to #@$^ off, and then they put it in themselves, maybe in an even more unsafe manner than was there to begin with.

I know this is not really taking into account all of the scumbags out there doing subpar work and then running away with ma and pa's savings account, so there's THAT.

but you hit the nail on the head..the scumbag hackers dont pull permits , so there are no inspections..just like the criminal that buys a black market gun...non of the gun control laws apply to him..the same with the hacks...

Yeah, so funny story along that same line...

This lady, the salesperson who is trying to get me to buy this radio ad (which I bought) tells me OH yeah, our water heater went out yesterday and I told my husband we should call you to come swap it out, but in the end we just got a handyman to do it.

I want you to tell this that to my inspector who was fired by my Master for stealing and took the master’s test six times to pass. His #1 property is money for the city. Thinks he’s a building, mechanical and electrical inspector too.

I hate hypocrites like that. One of these days karma will hit one of them and relieve some hate. I have to see if I have not posted the awesome payback I got from a woman who hired a hack midway through our agreement.. I'll post it if I don't find it.

I was wondering what type of flare tool you use for 3/4” k cooper and above. When I have a water main repair I usually borrow my master’s flare tool but am going to order my own. He has the kind you hammer into the pipe to create the flare. Do you know of anything better then that?

I use the hammer type, fast and easy and it doesnt cost much and you almost cant break it...I dont know if they have any fancy electric flaring tool... https://www.amazon.com/Ridgid-41335-...aring+tool+kit
