I’m Handyman Donald and I like to fix things. Even as a kid, I wouldn’t toss out broken toys. I’d take them apart to see what made them tick, then figure how to bring them back to life. From toys, I graduated to cars, boats and motorcycles, then airplanes and missiles in the military. Now I work on houses, and I say with confidence, “You break it, I’ll fix it”

I guess all good things must come to an end. After a few good experiences we scheduled them again for the annual snaking of the drain. The first appointment they cancelled a couple of hours before the appointment, they said they were stuck at another job - it happens. Rescheduled for a few days later, they showed up and said they would not move the appliances to get to the sewage line [they always did this in the past]. Then they said only Mike could move appliances. So we rescheduled for when Mike got back from vacation. Then just before Mike was supposed to show up, Mike called and said he wouldn't move appliances anymore either. Thanks for jerking us around for 2 weeks.

CON'T FROM COMMENTS EARLIER. However, the installation took less than 3/4/ hour and was a basic regulator with no other function. Looking up the price afterwards, invoice did not list type or price, it appears that it would have cost me around $60 for the regulator and another $15 or so for the additional supplies necessary to install it and it was really a rather simple job with easy access. Given that, it seems that $300 for less that an hours worth of on site work, company says it does not include commute time in its prices, is a little high. While flat rate quotes are nice, they must take into consideration situations where the work load differs depending on the circumstances. Therefore, unless you are at the upper end of the harder work needed than the average job. it can be argued that my estimated price of $300 for labor was more than a little high. Maybe I am wrong since I have not used their services for years and am not knowledgeable of the costs of equipment and professional labor today.

In the United Kingdom the professional body is the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (educational charity status) and it is true that the trade still remains virtually ungoverned; there are no systems in place to monitor or control the activities of unqualified plumbers or those home owners who choose to undertake installation and maintenance works themselves, despite the health and safety issues which arise from such works when they are undertaken incorrectly; see Health Aspects of Plumbing (HAP) published jointly by the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Plumbing Council (WPC). WPC has subsequently appointed a representative to the World Health Organization to take forward various projects related to Health Aspects of Plumbing.

The difference between pipes and tubes is simply in the way it is sized. PVC pipe for plumbing applications and galvanized steel pipe for instance, are measured in IPS (iron pipe size). Copper tube, CPVC, PeX and other tubing is measured nominally, which is basically an average diameter. These sizing schemes allow for universal adaptation of transitional fittings. For instance, 1/2" PeX tubing is the same size as 1/2" copper tubing. 1/2" PVC on the other hand is not the same size as 1/2" tubing, and therefore requires either a threaded male or female adapter to connect them. When used in agricultural irrigation, the singular form "pipe" is often used as a plural.
