What a wreck. Besides crimped lines. This idiot may poison someone. Naturally drafted devices with a bonnet should have a 12" vertical rise before going horizontal. If not the vent gases don't have the time needed to rise. They can easily start a turbulence and spill out of the bonnet into the space.

I love telling people the flex lines on top of their heater aren’t up to code and need replaced lol this LL definitely learned their lesson as far as using handymen for plumbing! Spent a day and a half fixing the heaters (there were two) and clearing rust from fixtures. Had to replace two American standard shower valves and a kitchen sink faucet.

If it wasn’t for your plumber, you’d have no place to go.

Had an estimate today for the inside work to switch from septic to sewer.

Here’s a pic of the kitchen drain and the heater. First time seeing a heater like this. Down in a 4’ crawl. Still working!

My co-worker used to do that kind of half -assed [email protected]^& when he came across a galvanized trap arm and had to redo the sink drains and strainers.

Leave the end attached to the galvanized and try to mate up a tubular trap to it with a fkload of pipe dope.

I'm not sure I mentioned this before, but this guy used to be an employee of the local port. Someone let him wire up some kind of contraption for battery charging for one of the commercial fishing rigs. At the time he was trying to get into the electrical apprenticeship.

Well he burned the boat down with that garbage, and that was the end of that. The plumbing apprenticeship took him right in though.

I got a call for a clogged bowl. When I get to the floor a nurse passed by me on her way out turns to me and says "good luck". I looked at her and before I could say anything another lady said wait before you go in the Charge Nurse needs to talk to you. Im like "ahhh no what's going on i'm scared" . So the nurse comes out and says "we've been calling you guys up here for a week because this bowl keeps clogging. Someone just realized that they might remember they could have possibly flushed Mrs. Whoevers teeth but we're not sure. The old lady put her teeth in the bed pan and may have covered it up and then a nurse comes by,grabs the pan, and dumps it in the bowl. Im like yeah right. So I put the auger in and feel something. I take the bowl off and sure enough there are the ladys teeth smilin at me. I was like No way. I told the nurse to mail them back to her. She declined. I put back the bowl. As i was leaving the nurse says so and so remembers there was another half. This time I turned to her and said good luck.
