Are there any plumbers left who take pride in their work????
I try to make it all look good, even if it gets hidden in a wall.
I just can't belive what gets the OK theese days for a job well done.
I am not an old fart, just trained by them.
The people who come out of trade schools SUCK, and that is putting it
Saw a remodel job not too long ago where there was a series of 1" brass pipe
had been bent from horz. to vert. while maintaining a perfect 2" spaceing
the whole thing. (8 pipes in all). This was all being removed and thrown in
only to be replaced with PEX. (this was very sad)
OK im not a drunk or a crazy but it almost brought a tear to my eye to see
The brass was fine it did not need to be replaced. Now that space is a mess
All installed by a bunch of yard apes. It takes no skill to run pex.
This is unfortunely becomeing common practice and our country is suffering
because of it.
Our country is being ruined from the inside out, and its not just in
plumbing this happens.
The scarey thing is it happens even in the justice system, the medical
system and our government.
I may be one of the last but I will NOT agree that the new way of installing
plumbing is good.
A mess of plastic hose is NOT OK.
A mess that is going to be burried in a wall is NOT OK.
A "plumber" who does not know heating and gas and tin knocking is NOT OK.
If you can not cut and thread pipe then you stink. You are just a mere
