That's Not Puddin' Down There

By
Home Inspector with JRV Home Inspection Services, LLC HOI 394

pudding???You kind of have to be thankful for indoor plumbing. Can you imagine having to go out side to the little shack in the back yard every time you had to do your business? Everyone has I'm sure had to use something similar at a park or an event. The worst part has to be having to see all that stuff just below the seat. Never mind the stench!

So you have to wonder why when a contractor removes a toilet from the basement floor, why doesn't he have the plumber seal the opening. I mean he must have gone to a park once in his life, right? He has got to know that stuff at the bottom of the hole isn't pudding.

Now tell me you're kidding.  A contractor wouldn't really leave an open hole to a sewer open in a basement would he?  Really?  No......

Mr James,

I find this to be a totally unappetizing treatise on your parts.

Charlie, You're an intelligent guy, I think you know what you see in the hole. Poo. :)

Jeanne & Ralph, The proof is in the pudding...Sorry couldn't resist. :)

Nutsy, Sorry. I do find you appetizing.

Nr James,

Like Nutsy, that turns me off. I cann hardly wrap my vocal chords around that one. I have a voice that will fill the largest auditorium without amplification.

Hi James, seems like sealing that up would be standard practice.  Is there a SOP book for plumbers?

Wheat, You don't like pudding?

Liz, I think good sense would be the SOP in this instance.

Reuben, Right, something.
