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 1.5″ 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 the place & an unexpected service call from the plumber.
(Left) is a solid metal one.
Note: Sutherland Plumbing only uses the higher quality metal ones!
Had the original plumber invested about .50 cents more – all of this would have been avoided!
