Danger – you get what you pay for!

The photo below is the result of using plumbing code-compliant galvanized steel for water connections. Yes, I said code compliant and before you start thinking this is WW2 era – this fitting was installed in 2011! If any of your pipes look like this, they’re living on borrowed time.

Let’s remember: “Code” is a bare minimum set of standards set forth with the intent being to keep people safe and alive. We all know we can exceed minimum standards in almost every aspect of life. At Sutherland Plumbing LLC we don’t even stock this material nor is it allowed on our job sites!

We use brass or stainless steel. The fitting you see in this picture costs about .60¢, the brass replacement about $5.00. This is a microcosm of every single material and installation standard at Sutherland Plumbing LLC.


Let’s remember the old adage: “you’ll get what you pay for!”
