Next time I want instant anxiety I’ll watch this again. 😂 I guess he couldn’t find the main?
Read the description below the video. And then look at the comments about people not reading the description :D

Part of the description;


"........All hiring and decisions were exclusively between the landlord and plumber. The woman with the steam vacuum is the tenant of this low income apartment with her two children. They reported a leaking bathroom sink to their landlord. The landlord, a very problematic, very cheap, Persian female, calls in a self-appointed Hispanic plumber named Wilmer. Wilmer is the kind of cheap labor that cuts corners to try and save money.

It should come as no surprise, with these buildings having been built in the 1970's and earlier, that nothing is up to code. This means, in order to shut the water off for this one apartment, the entire building's water would have to be shut down. The apartment complex requires a $150 fee to be paid every 30 minutes the water is turned off. The shut off valves and water heaters are behind locked doors and are only accessible by the complex staff.

This is obviously a flawed system compared to the ideal of each apartment having separate shut off valves. The landlord is far too cheap to do anything about it. Wilmer tried to please the cheap landlord by saving her $150 on the bill - you guessed it - by repairing the leak with the water still on. Wilmer, confident in his abilities and armed with his trusty 5 gallon bucket, knows that he will always get her return business if he pulls this off. He gets underneath the sink and unleashes a 90PSI torrent of steaming hot water (don't worry, the minion slippers are fine)........"

They’re not needed As the directions indicate for three or fewer and as proven once the shower was commissioned.

Just left a faucet that would give two different temps out of the aerator. One side of the aerator stream was hot and one was cold. It wasn’t mixing well in the spout.

Crane Dialese with a new aerator.
This is no joke. I’ve never seen it before.

I should make a video using a digital thermometer, I would’ve lost my money had a guy offer to bet me this was happening.

1st call: replace toilet seat and lavatory pop up rod.

2nd call: remove toilet and bidet connection for the owner to remove wallpaper and paint the bathroom.

3rd call : dewinterize a vacant house and check all the plumbing. Make minor repairs.

4th call: low volume on tub/shower valve.

Needs a lower flow aerator or one which mixes in more air. I like the spring-flo aerators from WB. #51028 and #51027.

The listing for the #51027 shows a female but is labeled as dual thread. The title is wrong, the #51027 is female threads only. They messed up when they launched the new site. If they say out of stock just order anyway, you'll get them in a couple weeks regardless.
