Welcome to the latest edition of our popular “Can You Top This?” column, featuring the newest entry in the Service Industry News “Horror File. ”

This issue’s entry comes to us from Les Heaven of Colleys Pools, in Erie, Pennsylvania.

“Found this Plumbing Jem when a new homeowner was told all they needed for their pool was a liner”, writes Les.

“Notice how many valves are involved here and that both the suction and return side are tied together in multiple places.

“And if that weren’t enough, hanging above the unattached heater vent is an old piece of indoor outdoor carpeting.

“The makeshift draft hood assembly is neither attached to the heater nor is it vented to the outside of the building.”

Plumbing and heating sure looks like a challenge to this homeowner. Thank goodness you were called out to correct this before it was too late.

Other publications like to print lots of pretty pictures of beautiful pools, spas and well engineered installations.

At Service Industry News, We would rather go behind the scenes and take a closer look at the type of stuff our readers encounter everyday. — cracked tiles, tree roots, spaghetti plumbing, rats in the heater, cars in the pool and more!
