    Good deal!
    I have one like that now...

    My first one died when the vest she was wearing went off and blew up a bus in some middle eastern country...
    Or was it when she drove the passenger airliner she had hijacked into a building.:eek:

    The come both ways and it is not always apparent at first....:cool:

    Is it at least on a GFI circuit?

    Yes it's a GFCI outlet, I checked

    I wired up (3) CO/smoke alarms a while ago, interconnected & all set
    It wasm't tyhat much more $$ to buy 6 of them off **** w/shipping then buy just 3 for my house at HD

    Last year I went down & on Easter I ripped all the vines out around her chain link fence. I had been doing little bits here & there in the past. But I told the wife lets go down earlier so I can get the whole thing done

    If the customer wouldn't fix that gas valve situation on that water heater, I'd have the local gas utility company out there immediately shutting that service off. Don't care if it was cold or not; hotel room would be safer at that point.


    Let me guess; he was valving that down to control flow...?

    That black burnoff is pretty indicative of a straight flame.


    We know why that shiny new brass valve is in there too; plastic one melted.



    I'd rather see pieces of wood in that burner chamber than natural gas. FFS!:D

    Some people have no common sense
    I can almost see that hook-up
    IF the drain pipe was above the washer
    Putting it down near the floor makes NO sense whatsoever
    And the direction of the flow is just going to push it down into the sump pump pit
    Then the sump pump will kick on & push it right back
    No thought process there
    But a nice drawing :D

    Here is another video know it all with a video showing how to install a faucet.
    I couldn't watch the whole thing as This was posted on another forum with someone interupting the help I was giving someone... It seems as though the person I was helping noticed an upside down mack washer on the pop-up assy in the video...

    We'll call it a pig slop grohe installation...

    http://vimeo.com/2889056

    Oh boy I guess I made friends there...
    Seems the handyguy posting the video was one of the guys who made the video...
    Shucks...

    Redwood, you can not believe how bad I want to post on that forum.. It is probably a good thing they banned me. I really got a feeling the ban had to do with me knocking bad hack advice they are giving there.

    WOW! Gotta give these guys credit for owning up to the mistake and learning from it! I'd think most people would just get mad at the plumbers, ignore them, etc. Coming here to state what you did says a lot! I hope they take Redwood up on his offer to review videos before posting in the future. That certainly will help credibility!

    Kudo's for the fast correction Brian!

    I guess I'll withdraw my nomination....

    You have to still admit that some of the advice given at that site-is gawd awfull. Like the guy with the the busted shower/bath drain that wants to use a pump to drain his tub, instead of repairing it. One of the advice givers tells him he could siphon the tub into his water closet and the Moderator tells him what kind of pump to get :eek: http://www.houserepairtalk.com/f33/need-water-pump-sump-pump-6573/

    I watched the Vimeo of the Grohe faucet install. Handy Hacks. Good grief.

    You NEVER use putty on a plastic top. Never.

    Teflon on the drain part? Is that all that seals it? Shouldn't need it on a running thread.

    Pipe dope on the hose connection? Hope it doesn't eat the rubber that actually makes the seal. Completely unnecessary.

    Yes, the mack washer inverted. Too bad the faucet didn't have more parts so they could screw those up, too.

    Edited to add: BTW, why a widespread faucet on a 4" center basin?
