Yesterday I went and looked at a remodel for a guy who had a plumber that won't return his call.

Apparently said plumber is a guy who used to have a plumbing business in town, wasn't doing too well at it and went to work for one of the local water departments. This remodel occurred during the time that he no longer had a business license. The owner informed me that the inspectors even saw him there doing work and made comments in regard to how he shouldn't be doing what he's doing, yet nothing happened to the dude. Now apparently he's got a job as a correctional officer and won't return calls to finish this job.

Long story short and i'm under looking at this shower drain that I need to hook a trap up to and I see a tub drain not too far off with another one of these damn flat vents. The vent fitting and the 90 are even hub to hub about 12" below the floor. I see no reason why that vent shouldn't be in the vertical position, nor why the inspectors would sign that garbage off. I didn't have a level to put on it, but it sure even looked opposite grade from the vent to the drain.

Is it just prideless work, or really not knowing how to be a plumber?

I should take a picture of it. If I can remember when I go back over.

Went to replace an RPz yesterday and found this, no idea what it's. HO's didn't want me to replace it so I just made a note on the invoice and got signed clearing me of any future (not too far) leak/blow up.
