Submit your Best Defect Photos here for February. :slight_smile:

Take a chance in winning a grand prize in December.

Ever seen pink fiberglass batt and masking tape used to insulate supply piping?

It was a real pro job.

The masking tape had even been stapled to the floor joists for extra protection.

Now that is attention to detail.


Pictures just don’t do justice to this DIY arrangement…
Ground water, main level machine machine, kitchen sink, dishwasher, AC condensate, and basement laundry tub all drain into the sump pit. Pump is connected to a home made extension cord using old BX wire that is hard wired to a switch box.
Third picture shows the water stains and mould on the wall in front of the sump pit…

Looking good thanks ,
This is what we need and many get much education from these pictures .
Thanks please keep them comming much appreciated … Roy

Just plug in the extension cord and fire her up!!!..Literately.

Good one guys. :slight_smile:

This is wallpaper used to hold insulation in place because it got wet and heavy, and the paper backing wouldn’t hold it any more.

Don’t fix the leak, or replace the moldy insulation, just wall paper over it.

Oh, the wall paper didn’t hold it either.:mrgreen:

edit? lets try these…

Mike, do you have a better picture available?:slight_smile:

the edit better?

Yes, and thanks, it will help when I post the poll. :slight_smile:

I believe the house was holding up this footing

That sure is interesting at first I thought the picture was turned … Thanks… Roy

yes, i love dr suess plumbing!

Nice register

And now I present the winning entry! :cool:

This home had many items that I could have entered into this months contest but I chose the water heater flue. As you can see in the pictures the single wall flue completely failed in the attic. The water heater was about 25 years old. There was no TPR valve at the water heater.

Here is my submission for the month. Two exhaust fans were the same as this one. They didn’t even try. Mold and mildew was everywhere in the attic space.:shock::shock:

Another great example where many can see and learn .

Love it keep them coming too many we can use them next month

Thanks for looking and posting much appreciated … Roy

Wow! good defects guys.

Thanks. :slight_smile:
