Help with finish work please


I wonder what size drain pipe that is? I did not like how big he made the holes. And what is with all those smaller drilled holes?

Huh? It's pretty easy to tell if a crimp ring is crimped correctly, ya know.

Well I got it all done with no leaks. I crimped and checked each fitting with the g/ng gauge. The only thing that sucked was the cold water was right below the drain so its moved off to the side of the drain pipe. Is that bad? Also for that threaded union on the ptrap, are you suppose to use plumbers putty on it? Or make sure it's seat Ed correctly? Also I did the hole for the drain. We had to lift and slide the cabinet into position since the drain comes out at 45 degrees, hence the large hole. The "tiny holes" are actually screws to hold a piece of ply behind the cabinet so the old work box could be more sturdy. Not my happiest execution but I have screw caps that match the cabinets so I will use those.

Why are the hot and cold lines reversed?



Also : I never use metal trim rings on plastic pipe.

What do you mean reversed? The mixing valve flex lines are color coded and hooked up to the correct hot and cold lines. Good point on the metal finish rings. I checked and they are rounded on the inner lip. I would need to cut them off now.

Putty is not needed on the trap. But I do use a splash of pipe dope for lubrication

Goofy. But for something like this it doesn't matter much at the end of the day.

It's the 2600 1/2 hp. We compost everything we can so we don't plan on using it a lot. It's darn quite though.

That's because waste king doesn't do anything. Just there for looks. They call it waste king because it's a waste of money.

Typical hyperbole with nothing backing it up.

Rather than take cheap and easy shots like a 12 year old, maybe you could add some relevant facts to that vague claim.

Oh come on it was a joke.

Besides the fact that a 1/2 hp name brand disposal from insinkerator can be had for 99 bucks?

Well the fact is I'd really like to know. These things are pretty expensive disposals. The L8000 is like a $350 unit with 1 HP and lifetime in home replacement warranty. But now they're heavily discounted. And I'm wondering.... why?

The obvious guesses are they changed ownership and are cheapened down, or they're going out of business, or.... ?
