And I though I was sad ;-)
If you could actually _see_ to the back of the cupboard under the sink of
most folks' I've visited you'd see an unsightly tangle of copper pipe bent
all over the place with solder runs and verdigris all over them. I
personally think gracefuly curving plastic looks better.
(Mind you I do take secret delight in a well-done bit of nicely bent &
cleanly soldered copper pipework when I see it - all the more so when it's
me who's done it :-)
I agree. But I don't have to look at others work - only my own. And I keep
the washing powder and spare washing up liguid under my sink so I see the
pipes at least a couple of times a week.
With all the sags between the clips? ;-)
Yup. I had a pro mate help me (or rather the other way round) putting in
the central heating when I first bought this place, and he was an absolute
artist with pipework - the stuff round the cylinder, pump and flow share
is a delight to see. So I had to do the same to all the rads and then
subsequently the new bathroom kitchen shower room etc.
I also once worked with a chippie with even higher standards.
Unfortunately, no matter how hard I try, I can't get even get close.

You want sad?
I Brasso'd my nice new pipework in the airing cupboard.
Admittedly whilst waiting to see if those slopes and
rather tasteful 45-degree angles in the pipework would
avoid airlocks in the gravity feed to the h/w tank.
The really sad part is that it was just before lagging
all but one of the pipes anyway (the 'cool' return to
the boiler was left unlagged to assist the gravity flow).
