    I figured I would start a discussion for plumbing. I found this pipe installed with a hole in it. Luckily we test everything with before drywall goes up or this could have been a very expensive repair.

    Honolulu,, Hi.

    Is that a brand new pipe? Where is it manufactured at?

    That’s interesting I’d thing it would be from canada with it big steel industry. It’s a good thing you pressure test the system before it’s closed up.

    What would be your best guess; damage in handling along the way or a manufacturing defect? How do you repair damage like that?

    Probably won’t be getting much more from the states with these new tariffs in place now. I’d prefer to use Canadian products anyways.

    It’s just a manufacturing defect, there’s no way to fix it really. We just ended up swapping out the piece of pipe.

    Good catch on that bad pipe. I bet you will be watching out for that from now on.

    Whew! That’s a good catch!

    Good thing you caught it now, that would have made for a really bad day down the line. And it would have been a whole lot more expensive too….

    I am surprised that passed , don’t they have quality assurance inspection for parts that are manufactured for plumbing ? the company that makes them must do a kinda inspection of sorts , unless it’s just visual , and missed it

    I’m surprised whoever installed it didn’t notice it going in.

    It’s hard to inspect everything you install on such a fast paced job. It may seem obvious but that’s why we test everything I guess.

    How would Macgyver fix this? He would take out two sticks of gum, chew them for five minutes then push that onto the hole…lol it’s the vent only section or it’s getting flow?

    Just goes to show how important testing is, even when dealing with all new supplies.

    This week I started working on the penthouse mechanical room at the highrise building job.

    Got the wall hung boilers mounted in place and started working on the main piping, I’ll post some more pictures as progress continues.

    That could have been a very expensive repair if not found by testing. Nice catch.

    a manufacturing defect?

    It looks like porosity too me. So it was cause in the manufacturing of the pipe.

    I’m surprised whoever installed it didn’t notice it going in.

    It could be that the hole wasn’t there when it was install. Once the pipe had pressure in it the porosity let go.

    don’t they have quality assurance inspection

    I am sure they do. If that hole started on the inside I not sure how you would see it.

    When I worked in production machine shop. One of dept’s sent out a part for turbo that had foundry sand in the casting. The sand didn’t get caught and end up ruining a new diesel motor. Those parts were checked 100% too quality specs.
