Ti’s Tips, Volume #2 – “The cheap comes out expensive…”

Ever heard it said “The cheap comes out expensive in the end?”  This especially applies in the plumbing trade!  The image below is of two 1-1/2″ tubular slip nuts, I haven’t found a house yet without one.  They make the seal under your sinks to the drain pipes.  (Right) is a cheap plastic one, notice the huge crack.  This resulted in a damaged wood cabinet, damaged wood floors, stinky, gross drain water all over and an unexpected service call from the plumber.  (Left) is a solid metal one.

Note: Sutherland Plumbing LLC only uses the higher quality metal ones!

Tubular Seals

Had the original plumber invested about .50 cents more – all of this would have been avoided.
