Looking For Good Plumbing Forums,for Plumbers Only....


This is a great business forum,I enjoy the plumbers here too,and am looking to keep expanding my knowledge ,so does anyone have a good plumbing forum they'de like to share.To contractor talk moderators,I apologize if this is out of line and block it if you need to.I am a member of ridgid forum but they are so clicky it makes me heave!I must not be the only one as Ridgid should be the largest plumbers forum ,bar none,and it's a joke,actually.Don't get me wrong ,there are good people at that sight,but the west-coast love fest.and general arrogance keep me from partipating anymore.There are other trades on that forum and those guys seem decent.Thanks

I also belong to Ridged forum and agree with you, that the west coast and DC plumbers only think of helping each other and putting down anyother asked question.
So I also would like another forum to learn from.

What about Terry Love's site?

What about Heating Help for the hydronic and steam end?

I am not a plumber, but I have heard many others talk about Terry Loves Plumbing Forum.

I think it is for plumbers more so than DIY'ers.

The other forum I go to www.fatplumbers.com is real good, but seems like there are very few who know about it.

TerryLoves site does not really seem to me to be a "plumbers" site. There are a lot, in fact I would even say most of the posters, are diyers and hos posting problems with a dozen or so people offering advice several of which are most certainly not plumbers. It's not a bad site but it is what it is.

I use to visit Ridgid but there is immense, unwarranted, snobbery that goes on there and I just got tired of it. Basically if you charge customers via any method other than t&m and at any rate over $75 per hour then you are a swindler and a crook. As for plumbing knowledge and experience, you will never have anything of any value to offer any discussion.

Threaderman, jump in here and turn the plumbing forum into what the excavating forum has become. Write your own ticket.

I went over to Ridgid and all I saw was that freakin' Ridgid logo. Then I got to thinking about tools. Then money. Then work.

Screw that.

I come here when I check email or get bored with **** and that's plenty internet for me...

Isn't that Randall Hilton's forum site? If so, I get his weekly (?) newsletter. It's always very informative.
