DESTROYED 4x6 transition and lateral 6” vcp. Excavation and replacement necessary. Notice the difference of the coupling!!! NOTICE to all plumbers, quit using the rubber Fernco 4x6 couplings and spend more for the proper ARC transition coupling. I’m sure your clients and your future as a plumber deserve it. Thanks. #thedrainwhisperer #844plumber #3rdgenerationplumber #plumbthis #quitbeingcheap

Navajo Nation, Arizona...Jed’s the man! He stands next to Lillie, the mother of two in a household that was promised running water and functioning sewer over 20 years ago. Needless to say, this home and family was well qualified for this project put on by @iapmo @iwsh_foundation @emmarobbinz @rezdog_bezdog @tiernanhebron @digdeepwater .....Lillie stated, “I’ve been on this Earth 47 years and have never had running water in my house”, she was overwhelmed with emotion as she was wiping her tears away with a tissue. We were all taken back a little by this simple yet powerful moment for this family. I was given a token of their appreciation, a necklace of ghost beads and a handmade mini knife in a leather carrying case. The elder of the family was watching every minute with a smile, seen in photo with me. The three little kids in the next household were in awe at the running water for the first time in their lives. My team leader Randy as seen in photo with hat and kids had the honor of showing this family how the faucet worked and how the tankless water heater gives them the hot water from the faucet. Running water, hot at that may not seem like a huge deal (until you don’t have it), but this family has never experienced this in their own home, ever. Think about this...the three homes we provided with water and sanitary sewer systems are only 3 out of many that are in need. This reservation is only 8.5 hours drive away from where we live. There are people, families with little ones that need this help. I hope this post allows for some gratitude cultivation and some awareness of the basic human right to accessible potable water and sanitary sewers. Right here in our own country, 8.5 hours away. I’m one of many guys who volunteered their skills and sweat and time into this project....many thanks to all the guys! What an eye opening experience. These families were so very grateful. Heart building and breaking at the same time. #plumbthis #plumbproud #3rdgenerationplumber #commplumbing #thedrainwhisperer #844plumber #digdeepwater

The beginning phases of a new water cistern (tank) for this Navajo family. This tank will provide this family with potable (clean) water FOR THE VERY FIRST TIME  in their home helped by a pump system. Also, a tankless water heater for hot water. With the help of elite plumbing professionals from Wisconsin, Arizona, and New Mexico (guy operating the backhoe) the family (two members) you see in the last photo will no longer have to lug 5 gallon buckets of water into their home for use. This is just the beginning of what’s to come. See @iwsh_foundation and @iapmo and @digdeepwater for more details and wayyyyyy better photos. This is just what I catch along the way while I work. Please spread the word and help with awareness. #thedrainwhisperer #844plumber #3rdgenerationplumber #plumbthis #commplumbing

Day 1: Navajo Nation plumbing project. The minute I stepped out of my truck, I was greeted by these pups! I must say, this journey has already been so touching. You see the cream colored pup, definitely half wolf or coyote. More pics to come. Today, we are installing septic tanks and water lines for families without plumbing facilities. It’s an emotional rollercoaster already. @iapmo @iwsh_foundation  @digdeepwater #commplumbing #plumbthis #navajonationcpc #844plumber #3rdgenerationplumber #thedrainwhisperer

Once upon a time, I complained and threw a fit about no hot water...now I’ll meet Americans, right here in our backyard that have no water at all. That’s right, NO WATER in their homes. Imagine that. Now imagine this, no water, no power, no toilets or sewers. How do you feel now? I’m at a loss for words only due to an overwhelming emotional surge throughout my body that immediately chokes me up. This feeling is uncontrollable, the overall privilege and opportunity to be of service and install these plumbing systems for less fortunate families that are almost forgotten about. Yes, there are people out there without shelter at all, but I can’t apply my skills and trade in that circumstance, so I try and execute where I can, just to help out for the helping out of it. Someone said to me, “well what do you get out of it”? I answered, “it’s what I get to give that becomes the reward”. I love what I do, I love my people, and I have faith that this world will turn it around a little bit to become more of a positive environment for our little nuggets that are our future. If this does not cultivate some gratitude in your bones, you’re not human. This was just the briefing today. Day 1 of the actual work starts tomorrow. Arizona union plumbers, Canada, Wisconsin, natives, all in the house tonight for this project. We come together, we plumb together. Handle it.

TREE ROOTS!!! Prime example of how the tree roots get into the sewer. This is a clay sewer pipe joint that has been compromised by tree roots. Replacement is necessary to solve this issue, cleaning the pipe with a cable or a better is only to clear the actual stoppage, remember there is no such thing as a “maintenance cleaning” for residential sewers. Matter of fact, it’s against California code to have a broken, cracked, compromised sewer pipe. If roots are in, they broke in, they didn’t knock on the front door to be let in. #thedrainwhisperer #844plumber #3rdgenerationplumber #losangelesplumber #sewerreplacement

High grade materials, always. Doesn’t pay to cut corners. “There’s never time to do it right but there’s always time to do it over”. Watch out for those couple of saved dollars from buying cheap couplings and materials!!! Could cost you exponentially in the long run and ruin your name and reputation as a “plumber”. The Drain Whisperer, at it again. #beverlyhillsplumber #thedrainwhisperer #844plumber #plumbproud #losangelesplumber #3rdgenerationplumber #quitbeingcheap

HELP! This family needs a little boost (like we all do from time to time). Go to my buddy’s profile and click the link for the go-fund-me. If a few more people can scrape together some coins, this family will be able to be there for this vital memorial for a a member who  was of service in the most honorable way. Please find some time and some coinage to make this happen, please. https://www.gofundme.com/family-trave-for-k9-ryder-memorial  #plumbproud #serveproud #helpneeded #donate

Waterstone. End of story. Thank you for listening. If you don’t know, now you know. Highest in quality, hands down. It was an honor to have installed this beauty by @waterstoneusa including the air switch and air gap. Sink by @kohler, plumbing by yours truly. It’s so nice to have clients that care about what fixtures they are going to see EVERYDAY, use EVERYDAY, wake up to EVERYDAY. Make it count y’all. At the end of the day, I want to hear my client say “I LOVE IT”. Ok, real end of story. #844plumber #thedrainwhisperer #losangelesplumber #plumbproud #qualitycontrol #hollywoodhills #waterstonefaucets #kohlersink
