    wow amazing all the notches that u guys did on all d studs its not gonna pass plus the trap that u have installed is not legal its an s-trap….upside alittle bit on your cold water..

  4. TheOldkid888 says:

    Well,3 inch pipe grades at 1/4 of a inch per foot (code).There is an s-trap installed for the shower and it is actually illegal.Venting is required for plumbing systems for proper drainage and also to prevent syphonage when other fixtures are draining.36 inch foundation would be the footer and not foundation.Washing machines are 11/2 fixture units and require a 11/2 half drain line with a 11/4 vent line.To the diy-plan out your job well and research as much as possible.Do it nice or twice.G.L.

    what a shoddy job …….. that copper needs an abortion

  6. 2020starman says:

    @Michshnly not all slabs are post tension

  7. tyjezowski says:

    @oldsoldier17 no. too much pitch is bad cause the water will pass the solids leaving them to dry and cake your pipe closed

  8. zacefrongte2009 says:

    That p-trap looked like it didn’t have a vent on it and it was configured as an s-trap. That’s illegal in these neck of the woods. But different municipalities allow different ways of doing things….

  9. Michshnly says:

    Where are the post tension cables???

  10. shauntampa says:

    that copper job looked horrible

  11. oldsoldier17 says:

    does using more of a pitch like a 3/8 or 1/2 inch pitch better than a 1/4 inch pitch or no?

  12. bsnesman says:

    captions screwed it all up

  13. 4491430 says:

    how do i connect a toilet to the main drain? im building a kinda shed like house ? and i need to know how to do it?

  14. tyjezowski says:

    @billabongcocker nope. it can be 3″. only has to be 4″ after a a third water closet otherwise can be 3″. everyone puts in 4 cuz you get away with 1/8 grade instead of 1/4

  15. JVASHER says:

    shit will flow up hill……… as long as you are getting enough head

  16. billabongcocker says:

    main sewer is 3′? in canada a main building drain is min 4″

  17. PabloStella2 says:

    not to mention that on paper the minimum size for a 2 inch stack is an 11/4 vent. depending on fixture units

  18. PabloStella2 says:

    minimum grade on 3 inch pipe is 1/4 inch in canada. so be careful

  19. uaplumber23 says:

    As long as its just breakin the line on the level, lol…..

  20. 327h says:

    some light and close up shots will make your teaching much more efective thanks

  21. LOLDISNEYLAND says:

    i love it when shit goes down nicely. šŸ˜€

  22. pcorn915 says:

    im not doubting this guys skill, but with black water the slope is 1/4″ not 1/8″.what ever as long as the shit goes down

  23. EJ31707 says:

    yea im pretty sure is still min code vent for a washer is 1 1/4 but its 2″ from the trap to the tee and down and what are yea useing copper for use pex ????

  24. EJ31707 says:

    and what are yea useing copper for use pex ????

  25. EJ31707 says:

    yea and im pretty sure code for that vent is still min of 1 1/4 but it has to be 2″ from the trap to the tee and down

  26. 2020starman says:

    @Brd1515 Yeah 18in min i 30in max here and stand pipe

  27. 2020starman says:

    @punkrockplumbob A wet vent system only requires the one size pipe size larger on the drain not the vent .One foot up from wm tee he could have with bell or fitting reducer to 2 inch

  28. 2020starman says:

    @punkrockplumbob 3 inch vent is ridicuals

  29. 2020starman says:

    @punkrockplumbob What they have is an improper lay out
    They should have cut the concrete to hit center of wall and used a double fixture fitting … Clean and easy job

  30. 2020starman says:

    @punkrockplumbob I know what they are doing here .. If you look at the wm stand pipe its to short local code and i’m sure most places the stand pipe must be atleast 18 inchs he falls shorts because it’s roughed in to high because of the lav dran under it

  31. punkrockplumbob says:

    @2020starman its a wet vent the line needs to be upsized

  32. punkrockplumbob says:

    1/4 inch per foot on a trap arm no matter what size and have you ever heard of a drill you hack notcher
    not only that the 3 by 2 comby you used puts the inlet below the wier of the trap which is also illegal

  33. punkrockplumbob says:

    1/4 inch per foot on a trap arm no matter what size and have you ever heard of a drill you hack notcher

  34. Brd1515 says:

    Not to be a bitch….Minimum 24″ stand pipe for washing machine. Canadian code.
    Another Strange differnence is our vent pipe termination only has to be 6″ above flood level/ shingles. Weird cause we get more snow for potential blockage.

  35. Brd1515 says:

    nope. 1/4″ per foot fall until you get up to 4″ pipe. Thats Canadian Code at least

  36. halomat98 says:

    next time use a sanitary tee on a vertical line all combo used for horizontal line!!

  37. 2020starman says:

    lav dumps above wm drain …. combo’s are never used on verticals … san tees … all that is needed is a 2inch vent …….. 8 fixtute units on inch and a half 24 fixture units on 2 inch … … well with in 24 fixture units ………….. where did they do this ? like to see a green tag

  38. jessi330 says:

    @2020starman how?

  39. ecfrazier2222 says:

    WOW! this guy actually showed his face! He’s video taping himself giving completely obsurd and incorrect info that will cost homeowners horribly! Its actually on camera!!!! Why would this guy make an instructional vid on a subject he doesnt know about? I see homeowners everyday that have been fooled by these handymen everyday>> its shamefull! he is qualified to be a home inspector!

  40. 2020starman says:

    he had to read the code must be a home owner

  41. 2020starman says:

    man this is bad work ……………

  42. stutterthepimp says:

    why is that p-tap look like that wit combo thats not plumbing plus that vent is goin back to the washing machine lol

  43. zihcm says:

    those arent sanitary tees, and the washer box has to be below the sink

  44. arielattacks says:

    Im sorry as i watched the video again this guy just keeps giving fucked up imformation. the drain has to have 1/4 inch per foot fall not an 1/8″ anything under 4″ has to have 1/4″ per foot. what a jabroni.

  45. arielattacks says:

    and he should of used san tees not combos what an asshole?

  46. arielattacks says:

    by code the the p trap can not be less than 24″ from the washer box. this guy is not a plumber.

  47. arielattacks says:

    Actually maybe the suds wont reach the lav but the 24″ is an absolute. you just cant wet vent a washer drain.

  48. starstarstar42 says:

    ExpertVillage should renaming eHow to eHell because almost all of their vids show just horrific examples of shoddy work. Their drywall serious actually made me giggle (rippled and gaps that they SHOW on video!). Their plumbing series must be made according to Somalian Building Code because it just gives really bad advice at times. ExpertVillage needs to go back to the drawing board with the entire eHow series cause right now it more the eHow-Not-To series.

  49. Deanzsyclone says:

    @flagface4 You thinking that water flow from the laundry dumping will pull the water out of the lav ptrap???

  50. TakenByForce420 says:

    I don’t even wanna know what kind of solids he’s gonna put down that bathroom sink, is this some kind of new Redneck Bidet?
