    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.

    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?

    Duct tape can't fix stupid, but it muffles the sound.

    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?
