Can anyone point me to some national (U.S.) organization
of "Plumbers" wherein I might find definitions of their
I am particularly interested in the definitions of
According to the company that cleaned my "sewer line"
the "main" and "branch" lines are different and that I only
paid to have my "sewer line" cleaned the first time therefore
the guarantee was ONLY on the sewer line. When I called them out
after three weeks (guarantee 6 months) the blockage was now in the "main"
line so they charged me again.
I would consider all of the drain pipes to be "sewer lines". For a house, I
would consider the "main line" to be all piping from the street sewer into
the house up to any point where it branches into two similar sized pipes.
Anything from that point I would consider "branch lines" as well as any
smaller lines which connect to the "main line". However, these terms are not
necessarily standard for all users. Have the plumbers show you exactly where
the pipes have been cleaned and where they have not.
Plumbers are pretty sick perverts.
They use terms like BALLCOCKS - NIPPLES - DRAIN COCKS - NUTS - MOUNTS
and other disgusting words. They even insert male pipes into female
pipes without asking the pipe before hand.
Plumbers are perverts and everyone should know about them before
allowing them in your home.
