Shoring and Video plumbing inspection. Is it worth it?


ok so my first post didn't show up.... we'll try it again. it doesn't look like some of the fittings were originally glued, could easily explain why they came apart. but anytime you lift a house, if the building drain doesn't lift as well, something will have to give. maybe the guy that did the shoring expected you to know this. but i would blame at least part of it on faulty workmanship on the original plumber. but that's easy to say from thousands of miles away

I agree with faulty workmanship of the original plumber. The picture on the bottom right shows one fitting (with the purple primer) that doesn't appear to have ever been glued. The other fitting that's broken at the hub may have been glued, but is a sanitary tee on it's back (not code). Broken now so doesn't really matter anyway. Also the 4" trap shouldn't be there.

Looks as though the house was lifted or jacked up about 6" not shored.

The second picture is a broken Y also lateral piping. The arrow indicates the flow of water and i have a note that states it is coming from master sinks.

The 3rd picture shows that same Y but just with the crack they found not completely broken off yet. That was done by the plumbers. Also a note to the left in the pictures indicates the flow of water down from master sinks and the note to the right indicates downward flow from the master toilet.

The 4th pictures with the two breaks are both vertical piping. The one closest to the photographer with pea trap is from master bathtub and it is connected to vent pipe. Another broken pile that we found after the pictues were taken ties into that same vent and goes off to the left of the photo to my hallway bath. The joint farthest away from the photographer is the hallway toilet. The plumber had already started the repair of that joint. Again, the arrows indicates the flow of water.

If the arrow indicates the flow of water in picture 2, then the combo WYE is in backwards.

Sorry, but it all looks messy to me. I know you have a lot on your mind, but would suggest it all be re-plumbed properly.

Pictures after the repairs. I was very satisfied with what they did but I am no plumber. What do you think?

I see what you are saying on that WYE. I didn't know that wasn't correct but obviously it is because the repair guys did it right. Thanks for showing me that. I meet with the plumber tomorrow and to pay him and will discuss those types of things with him.
