Here’s another example.

If a customers toilet tank cracks and floods their home, their insurance will pay for all the water damage and clean up.

The insurance company has never paid for the the new toilet or labor to install. Not here, not ever.

The reason I was given is a because the insurance company doesn’t pay for maintenance of fixtures or replacement.

When I repair leaks in walls or under slabs the insurance company wants two invoices from me. One that shows all the tear out and destruction that I do in order to repair the leak. The other invoice shows the actual pipe replacement or repair cost.
Different strokes for different folks lolololol

I installed a new system in this persons home yesterday....
Took the box down into the crawl space ,,,, set up some blocks
and put a peice of plywood on top the blocks....leveled it all up

took the new pump out of the perfectly looking box.... turns out
the thing had been beat up in shipping... Decided to gamble on it
and install it anyway..... the impeller shaft took a huge hit and
would not spin.........motor is locked up

Now I got to order another one and wait for it to arrive.....

That looks about like the Macdonald unit I threw in there....except it did
not get dropped onto its head in shipping....
That's a constant pressure pump, I assume that's what you want. Personally I'd stick with an all metal Goulds J5 and a 20-40gal expansion tank.

The place is not cursed,

Its been the summer of broken down trucks.... and normally its when
we are busy and dont have the time to play musical chairs with everything
inside them.....that is when they go down.

I am hoping it finally passes

new house, dishwasher ell, water hose type, put in personally. Unit was not wired when i left it, turned it on, left wire pulled out the front like a nice guy, and left. 2 months later, get a call kitchen floor is ruined. Home owner is the son of a cabinet business. I argued that there is no way that it is our fault. Insurance paid the claim anyways. Funny part is when i was called back to hook the dishwasher back up after repairs, there were new cabinet colors and layout. 🤔

They remodeled and sold a cabinet job to their self. Win win

I worked for a lady who’s house has burned down twice and both times they were on vacation. I quit working for her, sometimes it pays to research creepy mofos.
