More pics from the same house. Luckily, I was there to fix the sink drain because it was slow and they are finally having the d/s bath redone professionally by a bath fitter we work with. We are completely replacing all of the plumbing for the d/s full master bath.


As you can see, the sink drain has 2 different epoxied joints, a mighty putty joint, and the newest fix, epoxy tape. The bath faucet is just fabulous, I like how they left the plastic nuts on

Usually if we really can't order parts we tell the homeowner to call the manufacturer. Almost all manufacturers will send parts to homeowners for free, especially for new stuff.
I thought it was a dual flush toilet when I first saw one. I thought maybe push the handle half way and get the short pee flush, push the handle all the way for poo flush. Nope, they both work together.

Maybe one flapper puts water to the bottom jet hole and the other flapper puts water to the top swirly hole. @Alan, do mind checking that when you go back?

I looked up the toilet on YouTube more and that is exactly what the 2 holes do. The flapper is textually one whole piece for both holes.

These darn hacks ran a flexible line for the sink! And look at that hokey wood support!

Dane got it already, but that is exactly what it is. The flappers sit at two different elevations so one pushes a little more water than the other.

I'm not sure which one is which, but I don't really want to disassemble a 60 dollar flapper assembly to figure it out.

:P

Sump pump illegally tied into a kitchen/laundry/floor drain line. Hack master abortion job for sure. Had to cable it this morning. Going to make it right in the next few weeks. Sump crock is hidden under that square in the corner, directly under the electrical panel of course...

Believe it or not, but this mess is from the original plumber back in n the 60’s (copper drains). What I don’t get is they did this, but actually used the cardboard sleeves around the stems...
