Since their introduction, ABS drains have provided plumbers with an easy to install, efficient and reliable product that saves the plumbers time and homeowners money.
Unlike older drain installations that required joining cast iron, steel or lead together with soldered joints, pastes and waxes, ABS simply ''glues'' together at its joints. ABS also will never corrode over time like its metal counterparts.
The downside of having a product that installs easily, and is readily available to anyone at their local hardware stores, however makes the presence of non professional plumbing installations much more common.
The picture above as odd as it seems is not as uncommon as you might think. We at Inspections Rodrigues Inc. are always on the lookout for these non professional installations both easily apparent like the picture above and those not so easily spotted by the untrained eye.
