every tool is a hammer
We are just finishing up a job at a nuke plant. Lot's of drama and trauma. I was all "ate up" as we say. I got called to go out there to tighten up a couple of p-traps. While there, we noticed water coming out from under a plumbing wall. We thought it might be a brass nipple into a drop ear 90. My partner was using channel locks to tighten it up and he split the 90. So we had to pull a couple of tiles and sweat off the 90 and sweat a new one one. I have to walk about a half mile through all the security, get into my van and drive about 10 miles to the closest hardware store. I pull in and it's closed, no electricity. I drive to the next town over and get one. Come back, sweat it on, still got water coming under the wall. The superintendant and a carpenter and me are on O.T. now, and I'm praying it's not a water pipe because we will get backcharged for their time, plus all the wall repairs that will have to be made. We still didn't find it, but the roof just got seamed, and from what I can figure, the water came thru the roof and followed my pipes down thru a plate, hit the channel and ran under the wall. I really hope so. I will post back with an update.
