In my free time, I invent stuff. Most of the stuff I invent relates to
the plumbing trade (duh). I have over 30 inventions on my computer.
Here is one thing I invented. I have found it to be very helpful in
the field (especially on commercial work).
You simply take a 4" pump ball. I build an adapter where I can attach
my 4" pumpball directly on the end of a piece of 1/2" pex pipe. Using
this setup, I can shove that pump ball deep into the pipe directly
through the open pipe that I use for my 10' head test. I pump up the
ball through a fitting on the end of the 1/2" pex pipe.
I can shove that pumpball into the building drain 20, 30, 40
feet...whatever is required. I don't have to use it much. But this
thing saves lots and lots of work and prevents lots and lots of water
from spilling all over the ground where I'm working.
I'm just trying to get some feedback on this invention. I had to have
some of the fittings custom-made at a local metal shop and wasn't sure
if there was enough interest out there to place an order for a short
run of 1000. Opinions?
