You first tell a Licensed Plumber (how could you have know that he IS Licensed) to Call a Licensed Plumber, not a bad idea. Excusable.

But then you claim that you know how and give advice concerning the "How To" and you are NOT Licensed. Is that not a bit of Hypocrisy???

You answered a series of questions that were not even asked, and failed to address the matter of coordinating shutting down building owned piping (not tenant owned piping).

Have you ever seen an architect's plumbing design?

They even make notations that state verify code because they are not qualified to do it, most engineers aren't either, they are trained in theory, not in code. I have run high rise work, the as built piping was always done to my drawings.

Some building owners are so tough when it comes to stuff like that, a man has to seriously ponder his options.

Just tell the other tenants that someone must have gotten a kink in the hose to the building. I read in the paper not too long ago that they tack weld on the manhole covers and buffalo box covers as part of this homeland security deal in DC.

In his bio he said he is an electrician, later he said he was a licensed plumber, I found it odd he was asking a quetion of coordinating shutting off water since he is a licensed plumber.

Since he has 2 plumbing licenses, does that make him twice as good as a guy with just 1?

I gave no advice, I told him how the water is shut off to different devices inside a unit and that each floor is typically able to be shut off seperately from the rest of the building.

Have you ever seen a highris that the individual floors did not have a shut off? I never have, I am licensed in florida and only work here, so up north you guys may do things differently.

What is the requiremnt for getting a Plumbing license in PA?

You know those cordless grinders they make now? They work pretty good.

I like Florida just fine.

My Uncle was a contractor in Illinois, he was a general Contractor and then he needed a Roofers license for a job so he went to the building dpeartment and told them he wanted to be a roofing contractor and wanted to know what he had to do, they asked if he had insuarance, he said yes, and showed them, he paid a fee and then he became a licensed roofer in Illinois.

He was in Florida for a
while before that and took the GC test, he is a pretty smart guy and he said he was surprised at how difficult it was, but he passed it on the 1st try.

Does every town test you, or do you just pay a fee?

In Florida if you are certified, you can work in all counties in the state.

Is this the part where if I answer a certain way you get to tell me how smart you are again, and how tough your test is ?

I figured you could answer the question easier than me looking it up, but if it is too difficult, don't bother.
