    LOL.
    You couldn't pay enough.
    I can see it now, My laughing my arse off when the homeowner tells me the whatever is in that little hole in the wall.
    I pick up my tools and tell him to hire a midget.

    This is why I like service not installs.
    Salesman will tell homeowner all the time "No problem, we can do it".

    That is why I am so happy we do not have a sales dept.

    The techs do all of the estimates.

    If you get into a situation like that you have only yourself to blame.
    We've been doing so much,for so long,with so little, that now we can do almost anything, with nothing at all.

    If you could fit through there, you might consider a life of crime.

    You could make lots of money climbing in night depositories, and no jails could hold you.

    Nice tight fit was it?

    Me and our lead installer are small guys. I am 5'10" and 130#, he is a bit smaller at 5'6"/125#. Nice part is getting into crawlspaces. I once had to go behind a furnace to change a leaking blackpipe union, there was 8 1/2" between the furnace and the wall....I couldn't believe I fit. This does come back to bite us on the ass though since the others are bigger, older guys we're stuck with crappy, cramped crawlspaces. Me and the other little guy were doing a mobile home install, had to run lineset under the trailer that had a ground clearance of 10" there was dead rats, cat poo, and a rotting cat carcas under there. Needless to say I went home to shower as soon as the crawling was done, yuk. I think the others like to see the one (me) bidding these jobs out getting down and dirty with them too.
    There are 3 ways to do anything in life; Good, Fast, Slow: You can pick any 2.

    I've got the same exact tub in a rental property. Next time you're there steal the knobs and send'm to me. I'd greatly appreciate it.

    I guess if you lived there you would get used to grabbing a couple of wads of TP before you sat down to read the newspaper.

    I have some of them tub handles sitting on my desk, from my pops old plumbing biz.
    Actually, there is a little bell off to the other side of the toilet. When you are done, you ring it and a munchkin comes out of the little door, grabs some TP and wipes you butt for ya.
