    Heres one for the Wall Of shame, get a callback customer(hes also a friend)ask me how much pressure did i use to clear his drains, i ask why , he states carpet behind bathroom where termination is is soak and wet.. He did some investigation , lucky he can handle some of this himself

    .It wasnt my fault apparently a bad plumber or DIY HO or someone accidentally drilled holes in the drain pipe and left this inside the wall!! used duct tape to cover holes!!

    From the way the hole is cut... looks like there were tape joints along most of those cut lines...
    Which suggests to me... that hole was opened before...

    Good to hear it was not your fault...

    How did he tighten that union and why even have one ?
    No hub would've worked just fine.

    Was thinking the same. I'm guessing a hammer and screwdriver was involved.

    That said, I use one of these for plastic unions. Works well.

    looks like the holes coincide with the height of the electrical wiring.....and by looks of the holes, they were drilled with a spade bit.......
