Happy Thanksgiving Guys. Thanks for everything you do to keep this site interesting and informative. All the best. Jim, stay out of trouble. A TDR won't tell you when your turkey is fully cooked. Or will it?

Got home early today to help my wife get ready for thanksgiving. We are having 12 people over. I here her call from the bath room saying "Dylan clogged the toilet". So I start plunging but it's not working. The plumbing in this house is horrible so sometimes a have to use a snake in the clean out in the basement. So I unscrew the plug and as soon as I get it off...... Swoosh, I get douc-hed with nasty water. After getting the cap back on I crack the covers off the cesspools and of course they are filled to the top. Happy thanksgiving, perfect timing.

When my son was between the ages of 13-16 he was constantly clogging the toilet. A little beer in the diet helped when he got older.

Don't see cesspools around here, if you're on city water you have to be on sewers. On a well, septic tanks. Hope you don't use underground backflow preventers like they do in some parts of the country.

Never killed or injured anyone in 30 years, or had a lawsuit, or complained about direct bury, as long as proper techniques were observed. One thing I got dropped from our regs was a Wye strainer upstream, because I saw so many "pros" install a boiler drain, which, if left open, would be a cross-connection. Leaving the testers open on a assembly is another dumbshit thing do do, thinking it's going to winterize itself. :hammerhead:

Conbraco products are at the bottom end of quality. You can buy those at Home Depot, but I'd never.

I should move out there and teach proper backflow prevention. I would make a killing on replacing backflows alone plus pickup all the accounts for spring start-ups, backflow testing, blow-outs and get a cut from the water purveyors for protecting the water.

the fact that no one is selling insurance that indemnifies you from any liability for backflow consequences is all anyone needs to know - "follow the money"

You've beat this insurance thing to death. Show me the lawsuit that makes this untouchable by insurance companies.

Wet_Boots
11-23-2011, 08:39 PM
Most sprinkler guys aren't worth suing. Clarence Darrow has other fish to fry. But the fact remains that big insurance money isn't backing up the trades on this, so figure they know something that makes it unprofitable to offer affordable coverage for backflow.

What lawsuit? As long as one follows the regs, they are immune, period. End of discussion.

That can be a problem also, sometimes regulations are not known and sometimes changed without notice, but ignorance is no excuse.

Wow! Finally hit the big time:clapping: Not being a certified tester yourself, I find your comments to be flip, to say the least. Testers take their occupation very, very seriously, and if any of us thought a cross-connection or a high hazard existed, we'd be on it like a cheap suit. Don't you have another site to go to and bother them with your supposed wisdom without dork experience?:hammerhead:

That can be a problem also, sometimes regulations are not known and sometimes changed without notice, but ignorance is no excuse.The real problem for the DCVA guys, is that a good lawyer can make a jury understand that there is a higher grade of devices out there. Said jury is then capable of blaming the contractor for not installing toxic-rated backfow in the first place, even if local codes allow for a lower level of protection. Juries can do such things, and courts will back them up on it. Code adherence does not indemnify anyone from anything.

Now me, I like gravity on my side. Gravity I can trust. PVBs rule!


Now, in a sad note, I note the death of jazz drummer Paul Motian. I saw him play. (with Keith Jarrett) Nothing he did said "Look at me!" He just provided support. Very good support.

Its not a fact based on you making a claim. Show me the insurance company that says we'd rather insure an obygn than a backflow installer.

He was so "on" without getting in the way. I did not know of his death. I think his stuff with Bill Evans was legendary, without being star status, which he was.:cry:

The more I think about Paul and his influence on me and my playing, the harder it is to accept he's gone. Hope they buried his brushes with him. What a master.

We are thankful, you buffoon. :p (and I'm too music-thoughtful right now to continue bickering)

Speaking of brushes, I've been enjoying some of the Miles Davis early 'fusion' works. Side one of In a Silent Way has Tony Williams doing nothing but playing cymbals with the brushes, and it drives like anything.
