Maybe in your area but not here, I've been on a few big jobs where they had to tear down everything and start over. I remember my last 2 year as an employee the non union company went kaput or something and us from the union had to remove 4 entire floors of Cast iron because it was all done wrong. The building owner learned a big lesson. Over here non union usually equals workers who have never attended plumbing school or have any certification. I also remember back a long time ago the union workers had to redo an oil refinery because of non union and imported workers from another continent.
That sounds like Saskatchewan I was hired to run a non-union job it was a school. One man on the whole site had a license, me. I walked away 2 days after I started, it was such a gong show.

I was a 1st year apprentice and somehow I went to work in Ontario where jobs don't have to be union, so the job consisted of running new black pipe in a 10 story apartment building and put in rad heating. I found it real strange since I was such a green horn I wasn't supplied any tools and since in our province Union is mandatory with trade certificates people knew how to plumb, I realized the workers around me had no trade certificates or knowledge. One day the foreman asked me how to connect to a laundry tub spout to the boiler system. He didn't know how!!!! The next day I asked the boss for a raise to equal the wages of a real 1st apprentice compared to a minimum wage and I was fired.

........connect to a laundry tub spout to the boiler system..........
WTF is a laundry tub spout? And why would it be connected to the boiler piping?

Do you mean a boiler drain? Like a hose spigot? Laundry tubs ain't had hose spigots in at least 70 years! lolz I love you tango, must be a french thing.

Whatever it's called in New York a laundry tub faucet if you prefer, he wanted to permanently connect the faucet to the boiler for the water feed. As a beginner I knew that a boiler feed was connected directly to a water supply not with a garden hose!

It's not that we don't want to be helpful, it's just that we aren't nyc plumbers. When we have nothing relevant to add we usually just crack jokes. It doesn't mean we don't love you. :love::giggle:

Usually the best thing to do is contact the AHJ(Authority Having Jurisdiction), that is, the people in charge of what you want to do.

seems the new breed of snowflakes wants mommy or daddy to get them the job and all the info or have some one else do the hard work for a job or license.....just my observation from all the PARENTS asking for their grown kids and the younglings that ask here rather than the jurisdiction in charge...
I called the towns and areas that I wanted licenses in and ask what the requirements were..but the younger generation has schit communication skills..if they cant text or email it..they have no clue how to speak person to person...

I think they're just doing what most parents WANT to do but don't know better to actually not do it. There are a lot of things you shouldn't do for your kids simply so they learn to do it themselves.

My motto is, if you don't ask you don't get. I agree with you, these kids better learn to ask for themselves or they ain't gonna get.

they have to grow up and fend for themselves and making mistakes along the way is how you learn...I dont think we will hear back from this child since he didnt get any free schit or a fast simple answer...
