    Lightbulb Mr. Customer Does His Own Plumbing

    Hello all. Long time lurker, first time poster. I was going through some old pictures and came across some funnies. Check this out.



    And the guy was proud of what he did.

    I'm not a PVC artist ,but I know a good plumber. He'd have run it in copper. He is goooooooooood. My building doesn't allow pvc.
    Nemo me impune lacessit.

    How much blood do I have to bathe in to get clean?

    Don't look down on anyone unless you're helping them up.

    We see stuff like this, see how proud the poor fool is of himself, and just smile and nod....

    Then we post it here on H-talk. 'I'm taking a picture of your wonderfull piping work fella - nothing to be worried about....'

    The customer at this moment is probably telling his friends 'And this ac tech saw my piping and thought it was great too!!'

    Sometimes the truth is more trouble than it is worth, no use in destroying his self-esteem.
    Hmmmm....smells like numbatwo to me.

    CPVC is allowed here for anyone although I get into heated arguments with the management that if I'm expected to act as a plumber & run piping it will not be crappy plastic. Real pros don't use crap!
