|In response to Re: Plumber Chiseled Concrete Slab ???|
: My wife had a plumber come out to snake out a "clean out" that runs from our washing machine room through a bathroom and when the washer would empty out it would flood out of the shower stall and toilet in the bathroom.
: Problem was that the plumber apparently could not the the "clean out" bolt out of the wall and so he cut the old one off. He apparently had a hard time getting the new one on as the bolt is very close to the floor (concrete slab). Here is what I am freaking out about!!! The plumber chiseled out about a 1/2 inch notch in the concrete slab below the bolt to make it easier to get around it with a wrench if it needs to be removed again I suppose. It apparently went on without doing this before but probably was a pain to put it on. From what I understand, one should NEVER chisel directly on a concrete slab. Should I fill it and if so with what? Can this damage the integrity of the floor? Or is th is normal and should I leave it. I don't want it to erode in any way. This floor does get some moisture intrusion as this concrete slab sits directly on dirt and it sits on a hill! Is this something to worry about? Is this normal for a plumber to do this?
