ok ilplumber put forth a challange to get off of some of our hot button topics of late. and get on with new topic. this thread could technically be put under the plbg code section but im considering this a general plumbing discussion. we all know that the codes in all of our areas are the minimum requirements. when and where do you guys choose to go above and beyond the minimum for the sake of craftsmanship. example: im replacing a rotten ci stack. my code says i can tie on to the cast via a no hub band or fernco. i prefer to burn out the lead clean the hub and use a caulk ferrule to start my pvc transition. the band would be quicker and cheaper and legal but i like the permanancy of the caulk ferrule. that said lets hear your examples.
