When I give a code recert class, I do a slide show of hack work at the beginning, as the guys are coming in and registering. It used to only last about 10 minutes or so. Now it could run over an hour. Thanks for the slop, classics each and every one. Oh and nice photography too. nice and clear, well lit, in focus, properly framed. :thumbsup: Who says plastic can look good :laughing:
I explained to the senile old man that lived there that he originally had a $600-$700 job to fix that leaky manifold. Because he hired a guy of the street to do what he did, we will now need to rip all of this stuff he put in out. I will also now have to jack hammer open the slab to make a good connection to two manifolds (originally only one was leaking). Also, since he slashed thru the shower pan we will now have to demo the shower and install a new flange and pan which requires a permit and he will have to retile the shower.....again. This will set you back $2800 and that doesn't include the $400 you originally got taken for nor will it include your insurance deductible for $1000 (that doesn't cover plumbing, only water damage) So aren’t you glad you saved $200-$300 by not calling a licensed plumber the first time?
He didn't want to hear that. He just wanted me to "fix the leak". I promptly collected my service fee and left to my next call thinking how much fun it was going to be to post these pics.
How ironic, at the top of this page is a google ad for Sharkbites. Look for yourself!:blink: I don't think this is the type of imagery they were hoping for with their product.:laughing: But sharkbites are pure catering to the DIYers that are responsible for this horrible work, so in a way, these pictures are a good example of their product.:whistling2:
