What’s that by the toilet ? HVAC vent ?
The dark rectangle to the right of the w/c?-
It’s Heating and A/C vent, so yes HVAC.

We have these in every room in our homes in Ontario, for HVAC. 99% of homes/buildings in Ontario have basements where most of the HVAC is located. In Toronto our summers hit a high of about 30+ degs (not counting for humidity), and our winters hit a low of 0 to -10 to an extreme of -25 or lower.

That duct would not fly here unless grandfathered. You cannot have hvac in the floor of a bathroom or kitchen. Theory is, let’s say the toilet backs up, overflows and sewage enters the system. Now every time the furnace or a/c kicks on your breathing it. I’m not hvac, just know from many bathroom remodels.

Located an old pvc water line and capped it to verify it would hold pressure. It did…
It was damaged by a tractor about 3 yrs ago and turned off.

I then trenched with a shovel along side a warehouse in the roof drip zone where the ground is soft for about 50’. I have 50 more feet to trench then mount a hose Bibb.

At a residence I repaired a toilet and a Delta faucet.

This Pm I’m going to hook up a temporary sewer to a construction camper trailer.

Pushing 90 degrees today with some humidity so I’m not pushing it. It’s been a long hot summer………I’m tired.

Mark,
The water heater you installed in the basement leaked a million gallons while I was on vacation.

Me too brother. Looks like we may have a windy circle storm heading our way soon. Been a while since we had a good one with Micheal. That guy did some serious damage around these parts.

Well, SOB! I got out of bed over an hour ago so my wife could sleep without me clinging to her then throwing the blankets off. Took my temp, 99.9. After dinner I was down to 99. Sitting on the couch I thought, WTF, I have 8 tests that we paid for with our tax dollars. Says wait 20-25 minutes, both lines showed within 30 seconds. Going to test the two of them in the morning. Possibly call some customers tomorrow depending on results. Home tests are only 65% accurate from what I hear.

Today I have a lady that needs 3 toilets rebuilt at my first service call.

After that I’ll be finishing up trenching a 3/4” pex waterline for a hose bibb and backfilling at a commercial building in the city.

Time to get that money 🤡.

Get an aux cord and hook your phones headphone jack to the mic jack on your pc. Keep your volume at a 1/4. Use a media program like VLC to record it as if you were using a microphone with your pc.

Start recording, call your voicemail, let it play, then stop recording. Most media player programs will also do simple file snips.

sometimes you don’t know how bad a dentist is until you’ve experienced a true master of Dentistry that cares about his patients comfort and over all health.

Do you know why a lot of people have tooth sensitivity for months after a filling ?

Because the dentist ran his drill too fast and that heats up the tooth and that makes the nerve very sensitive. The dentist should drill slow and cool his instrument regularly.

Time is money and they usually have patients lined up and go from one to another. Just like a service plumber.

It went pretty well. She was a rag doll on the way home. Poor little thing. Got back home from work a few hours later and she was back to bouncing off the walls, not much pain.
One of my children has had surgery to remove his adenoids and tonsils. Very smart lady surgeon who takes every precaution you can think of. The day of surgery I made it a point to get face to face with both the surgeon and the anesthesiologist and havong a conversation.

I wanted to make sure the two people that’s going to be keeping m child alive isn’t a doped out idiot. I would’ve called it off real quick.

I got a letter from the IRS today.
I installed a temporary water device today.

I was crimping 3/4” and 1/2” pex. I kept thinking of you switching jaws to crimp the various size fittings.

I was impressed by the crimp speed in your video demonstration. It was faster than I thought it would be. If it goes viral I want you to mention my name in the description. 🫶

it takes like a mili second to change the jaws, quick release pin. just have the other one laying in your packout fitting box ready to go.
