Joe Dorotik says:

Jeff please do not make anymore plumbing videos here you do not know what you are doing. You must stop you are not a plumber that is obvious .. plumbers do not do work like you are trying to do. SETTING THE VISE AND METAL TOOLS O A GLASS TABLE IS A PERFECT EXAMPLE. TRY TO MAKE VIDEOS ABOUT SOMETHING YOU HAVE KNOWLEDGE ABOUT.. You need to delete this video PLEASE!!!!!!!! MANY THANKS JOE D

beagle22 says:

Glald to know about the saddle valve. I have one for the water line to fridge which is not hooked up. Going to get it done right way.

Joe Dorotik says:

Hi I believe you said the lady was going to get canceled within 48 hours if she did not replace thre trap I am not talking about having your roof replaced and the 10 dollar. Tool you are not working it properly intentionally to make it look like it is a bad tool . End of story. Agree the accordion trap is a bad fix for a trap just the comments you make about 48 hour cancellation by insurance is a joke.

Tatnall Kennedy says:

sounds like someone is losing ALOT of work to "handymen". this video should be labeled "Handyman Hate 101by jerkoffstroff" you probably lose work to handymen because you charge $200/hr plus or perhaps $2300 to install a hot water heater, or are somehow always booked up months in advance (yeah right) more like lazy, not that valuable dude, of all the house trades this handyman has done plumbing is by far the most basic and easiest, so I guess all these new "Handymen" that are taking your work will give you more time to make these cute little videos. By the way cut your grass it looks like sh"t. Besides your constant self agrandization (let me guess your divorced) needless bias to handymen (keep it to yourself, just like your ability to spell feurille"?) the video is decent. Its just that no one cares what you think of other trades people or that you have a 4th grade level spelling ability, Love always Tatnall K

IncognitoTorpedo says:

I think that the insurance company giving you 48 hours or you're kicked off the policy is kind of extreme. Flex traps are a poor product, but it's not like they're going to destroy the house. Even if you got a leak, it's a sink; you'd be standing there. People don't leave water running in sinks unattended for hours. The most likely failure mode is a clog.

Chris Hagen says:

On the ferrule removing problem, I agree, that 2nd tool is way better, and the first one is very marginal, but, I MUST point out that you were using that first tool (by Husky) incorrectly…perhaps the real problem is poor directions?

Keep up the good work!

Steve Giannotti says:

Hire a professional licensed plumber and do it right

Joe Dorotik says:

i don't believe your story that the insurance was going to be cancelled in 48 hours or however? why you say something stupid like that… didsome lady actually tell you that… poor guy…….

Joe Dorotik says:

You should let someone show you how to use the $10 dollar puller. I think even you know that you are not using it the way it is suppose to be used. sure you can see the notches on the end that the brackets fit in? really Jeff you should be ashamed….

Michael Domansky says:

Codes are written by plumbers so they can rob us. Period. Everything presented here is garbage.

Robert Balon says:

I am so glad I found this video. We are in the middle of a kitchen and bathroom remodel and our contractor installed a form n fit p trap under our vanity. I checked Ohio pluming codes and it is the same as Florida. We paid way to much money for this kind of work. I will be calling him Monday morning to address this. Thank you for this great video.

Pyar Squared says:

If no S traps, how do you install a pedestal sink that drains down through the unit into the floor?

Rafael Pinefa says:

I'm not a plumber, why am I watching this ?

gp3yt says:

THANK YOU JEFF!!! I'm with you…Mickey Mouse belongs at Disney, not in one's workmanship! From a perfectionist DIY'er that wants to do it right like a pro!

Marc Daniels says:

FYI S-Trap are permitted in Philadelphia Pa plumbing code .

Josh Cowart says:

If you’re under upc you can put a studor vent under the sink. One of the greatest inventions that eliminates the need for a saddle valve is an easy tee. They come in 1/4 or 3/8 whether it’s ice maker coffee or dishwasher

Charles Acosta says:

forgive me if this was already addressed in the comments because I'm not going to sit and read them all, but I wanted to comment on the handle sleeve puller. I own one of these as well, and if you try to incorrectly use it as is shown in the video or course you're going to hate it. It's not intended to remove the compression ring, it to remove the stuck handle from a faucet.

D B says:

LOL…Saddle valves for domestic water are not banned by UPC. They are used all the time and are completely within code.

Albo alt says:

Well, I'm 3 for 4 on these. sigh

rickkoleyahoocom says:

jeffostroff  To answer your question ,The Saf-T-Kut Brass ring remover does the job , its simple ,fast and easy,, I bought mine used but I looked it up  Construction Supply Sources has them for a penny less than fifty bucks. I am impressed you cared to ask. This is one I got excited about because how simple and basic it is.

Tediuki Suzuki says:

Why allow universally illegal fittings to be sold in the first place?

rickkoleyahoocom says:

There  is a tool to efficiently snap off the feral, A solid steel shaft that fit snug inside half inch copper pipe with an opposing tapered ridge of hardened steel that pinches it off with a snap as you tighten , very well made.

Joe Ehart says:

Got bored and tired of the condescension, couldn't finish video.

BluesJammin77 says:

As a “Professional” Handyman I get why you have an issue with the average HM. I live in a Tennessee county where code enforcement is a joke and I see a ton of work every year that is beyond sub par. Having lived in Florida for 37 years where code enforcement is much stricter I am often shocked and amazed at what I find. When I get into a job here. From saddle valves to twisted wire connections with no junction box in the attic to vanities imbedded in green board because the last HM was too lazy to pull the vanity off the wall before installing the drywall, I have seen it all. While I certainly agree there are a lot of HM that don’t know what they’re doing, there’s also a good number of us who care to check code and learn from pros like you before we do a job. Thanks for what you do. Really enjoyed this video especially the husky tool review. I’ve encountered all 3 of the violations you mentioned as well. I kinda think the sub par HM might go extinct if we all had to pass a skills and knowledge test and be licensed. But a lot of the blame rests on the homeowner looking for cheap work. To quote Babe of Babes Plumbing in Venice FL, “Good work isn’t cheap, Cheap work isn’t good”.

2:44 yeah, not quite capillary. Venturi effect, based on Bernoulli's Principle – fast moving fluid (such as air) drops pressure, creating suction. Air driven spray guns work like that.
