The trellis had been cut to fit the old bent copper that was there so I bent a new piece to replace the burst one.

Do they even make 3/8" OD slip couplings? Now I need some ;)

Had to remove spout for pink granite top repair. The valve bodies wouldn't budge, deck nuts corroded in place with very little to grab.

I put the new ceramic stems in so it's better than any of the modern crap available for less than 600$.

Stub out and winter drain for hose spigot.

This is my own house.

Right next to a stair case so I made it pretty flush with the wall and ran the drain down so I could set a cup on the step. I cut a groove for the pipe to sit in. The pipe couldn't go any higher without getting into the plaster on the outside of the house which I did not want to risk cracking. There was already a hole here through the hardwood sill plate and it was on an angle.
I added a slate(with pitch) and cemented next to the house to prevent water ingress.

More of a story than a picture. Fill valve was running, stop didn't work, and anti-sweat valve was only letting hot through. Woman said the toilet was so hot she couldn't sit on it. It's a tall toilet too!

I ran out of torch gas and had to search through their two bay garage full of carp for a can. Only found a full 20lb tank on their grill so I used my hose and adapter and lugged the thing upstairs. Problem was it was only a 3' hose because it was just meant to put the 1lb tank on your hip so I had the 20lb tank on the toilet lid the whole time.

Plastic flange had the outer portion ripped off so I added a new bolt flange and filled in the gaps with hydraulic cement. It was slab of course, in a pool house bathroom. Used a horned gasket.
