Pulling new supply line from meter


I was told by a plumber that my underground flexible supply line from meter to house can be pulled through with a new one by attaching . I thought a trnch had to be dug. Any insights

That's why he's the plumber. But if you'd rather spend the extra time and money, I'm sure he'll take it.

Obviously! I am a "real whiz". Why wouldn't you believe what he told you in the first place? Ever hear of "trench-less technology? Ask him if it's possible to pull a new sewer line through your old one. Better yet, "Google" is your friend. Maybe you'll one day be a "whiz".

Sir,
I am shocked at your language. Is this the way plumbers should speak to the general public? Of course, had he been right in front of you, it would have been OK to slap his around a little, but just a little.

Dear Mike, I'm sure you've made many a visit to a prospective customer, who for whatever reason couldn't grasp a certain concept of a repair, or thought the "plumber" was blowing smoke. The original poster had told us that a "plumber", and I assume a qualified member of the "bretheren", had told him he could avoid an excavation, and "pull it underground", thus saving the customer considerable expense. Apparently, the customer/poster didn't believe this was possible, and asked for "insights". My original post may have been a little over the top, but was fully intended to "help" the customer/poster understand that what was presented by a professional plumber was in fact possible. As for my second response, it is what it is. Now though, instead of hoping that the original guy he called out gets the job, I'm hoping that the original/poster has called someone that owns a great big backhoe. In addition, my hopes extend to where the new "salesman" up grades his inadequate and cheap, 3/4" flexible water service to a "lifetime" 11/2" copper line with both a PRV and an RPZ. Btw, I'm hoping that the "salesman" has a brother-in-law is in the landscaping business, who will give the original poster/customer a smoking deal on putting is yard back together. Best Flushes, I remain, A Real Whiz

No your first reply was absolutely nasty,. It was not anly above the top It was more out of character There was no assumption to be made The question was simple The answer was nasty

Apparently you have a problem with communication, both verbal and written.
First when the "plumber" presented a solution to your problem and second when got your feelings hurt from my post. I can only suggest that you grow a pair if you're going to hang around Usenet.
Speaking of which, since you didn't believe the original plumber, you can believe this one when he suggests you try using spell check before hitting the send button. A little punctuation wouldn't hurt either. Further, I guess when your momma was teaching you manners she neglected to read you the chapter on name calling.
So back to your dilemma. Your "simple" question got a simple answer. So why didn't you believe the original plumber?
The follow-ups were in response to the your name calling. Speaking of which, I found the nasty part of this thread was when you called your dog, human. I find what you alluded too, to be totally disgusting. Your dog can be your bestest friend ever, but never "human? I'm sure there are several Asian countries that would agree with me on that level, as they eat their dogs. I could carry this a lot further, but my only hope is that you and your dog are only on the best friends level.
Now if you wish to continue with more name calling, BRING IT! I'd be more than happy to really introduce you to:
Mr. Nasty Whiz
PS Gentleman Ironmike. I laughed out loud at your response.

Casino.
I do hope you noticed that since I said it'd be OK to slap him around a little, that I was sort of on your side here. My satiric wit just doesn't translate well in its written form.

You translate perfectly. You also are a gentleman I see your mother taught you well and you understand proper etiquette and how to reply those who lack proper social skills. Perhaps Casino has a differnt aspect or feels that beating with malice will solve some other inherent problem.
It is not that I hold a grudge against his response. We are all human Even my dog
When my dog gets out of control he knows how to show humility Casino in his second reply did not apologize as he would have shown weakness in his eyes. He only tried to exhonerate his remark.
I admit that i have shortcomings Then again i also have manners

Jeffy!
You are alive! I now live in Europe, but keep up on the current plumbing scene as you can see. I hope life is treating you well. Now if we can just get Bob W. to say hello, my life will be complete.

Holy crap on a stick! Bob, I miss reading you posts bud. I read her almost every day but seldom say a word. Not worth the flack from all the nOObs.

P.S. - I hope your well.

Bob,
You are also alive! This is wonderful. You would have been proud of me. For nine months before I moved, I took a job at a 26 story condo project on Cincinnati's waterfront. By far, I was the oldest plumber on the job. The largest CI I ran was 12", and I made it all the way to the top before I left for Kosovo. Besides putting up with all the "don't break your hip" jokes, I handled my own quite well. Because I was out of the trade for years (and didn't have a license) I hired in as a helper, but was kept on when most of the others were laid-off. Just understand, though, that I still prefer working with my mind rather than my hands.

Is there anyway at all I could convince you to come within arm's reach?

The smell that close has to be pretty foul. Like an outdoor grease trap in the summer I suspect :-)
Sorry, couldn't resist.

You are also alive!! When I moved, I just expected everyone in America would die. I am relieved it didn't work out that way. Perhaps I wasn't as vital to the USA as I thought.
BTW, my wife and I return to Cincy on Monday for the summer break. I'll probably have my share of faucets and water heaters to keep me busy till I come back here in August.

"When I moved, I just expected everyone in America would die."
Thats the same way I felt a few years back when I moved to the Mexican city of Yuma.
