-even a guy who has been plumbing for 35 years cusses like a sailor when things don't go exactly right.
Naybe so, but I have never seen it make things go any better.
-a pipe threader is the coolest damn gadget ever invented. For plumbing anyway.
At least when it has a power cord attached to it.
-you can never have too much teflon tape on hand.
My opinion is that for steel pipe, any amount of Teflon tape is too much.
-mount plumbing up high in the 18" crawl space so future plumbers can get in there to work
If only electricians would learn that same thing.
-don't let yourself get too chubby to slide under the girders. not me.
The "sterotypic" plumber would not fit either.
-plumbing may not be brain surgery, but it sure is hard work. $70 an hour, what a deal!
Cheap for a licensed contractor. Expensive for a moonlighter.
