    Hello! I'm interested in the problems of plumbers. Are there any issues you have with a product on the market, or something that you might need to do a job not existing? Also, do you ever have to modify a tool or create your own tool to get a job done right? Please let me know, Thanks a lot.

    I need a couple things that are not on the market yet.

    1. Pre-trained/experienced shovels
    2. I need both a right and left handed pipe stretcher, the universal ones are no good. I can't find them anywhere on the market.
    3. Gas power wheel barrow would be nice.

    That's all I can think of for now.

    Hey Chris, I'm not sure what you mean when you say experienced shovel or pipe stretcher. Could you be more specific?

    With a plenty of plumbing services availability in the market, there is no way that one can't get anything related to plumbing. Online market has eased down the plumbing process significantly.

    Being a human, in a day you come across throwing ten to fifteen things out of the house or dump into dustbin; however, you choose to flush those! Why? Why would you do this? These are the unwanted flushed which take around twice of gallons of water to flow the flushed garbage down the drain pipes. An invincible amount of water is wasted into unwanted flushing progresses.

    He is messing with you, a pretrained experienced shovel would mean it digs by itself so the plumber does not have to do the digging Chris.

    Wow! You do realize that, the post you replied to, is almost 3 years old.
    Oh wait, I missed the April 2017 post.
    How can a shovel dig by itself? That's just silly.
    I have a very experienced shovel on my truck, however it was not pre-trained. I had to train it.
    It used to clip buried phone lines or sprinkler line, but it's trained not to do that any more.;)

    And what's up with the plumbinggroup post? what the hey is he yackin' about

    David, I am looking for code info on the maximum fall per foot a sewer line can have,
    i know the minimum , i seem to remember years ago readying that 1/4 was the max because of a sewer needing to self scour itself and the water leaving solids
    do you know of anything ?

    That’s typical. The riser being installed when the did the street, no need to go deeper than need to connect to it
