    Thank you Mr. Wetpants. Not only have you stolen my wiring space by threading your radiator pipes through holes that were drilled for cables I was planning on installing on Friday morning, but you have installed hot-water pipes right on top of existing cables. I can't decide whether the ****wits who did this are plain stupid, just don't care, or even both.

    There's going to be hell to pay for this transgression when the homeowner discovers what has happened here. :mad::mad::mad:

    Easy fix just isolate the water and cut them out, tell the client who’s to blame and watch as a red faced plumber arrives.

    Agree, although for the life of me i can't get the perspective on that photo, it looks like a joist with a notch and 2 holes right below it? If that's true, even assuming this position is exactly 0.25 of the length of the joist, you're not allowed to notch and drill adjacently for obvious reasons

    It was wetpants who notched the joist. Apparently, he needs to install another pair of plastic pipes in the same run so decided to notch the joist to accommodate them.

    Some perspective and clarification: The boards were lifted by wetpants so he could fit new plastic pipework for the central heating system that he's installing. It was he who notched the joist, not I. What you see in the image has been repeated all along the entire run. The run is in the hall of an upper-level cottage flat.

    The two 2.5 T&Es form part of the existing installation, but were not installed by me. The cables have been fed through 20mm holes. The holes are over 50mm from the top of the joist. I was planning on pushing two new 2.5 T&Es through the same holes that wetpants fed his pipes through, but obviously that won't be happening now.

    disagree with that last bit. get wet-pants back to shift his bloody pipes, then use the holes. quote the 25mm spacing recommended in the regs.

    might be an idea to get the customer to complain to him and demand he alters it.

    This is what I found when I went back to the job today. Words fail me.

    wetpants.jpg

    Not content with the acts of vandalism evidenced above, wetpants then goes and batters in a pipe clip perilously close to existing cables. The RCD hasn't tripped so despite his best efforts, it looks like the numbskull has avoided penetrating the cable.

    I can't bring myself to place a rating on those pics, for fear of offending. Oh dear, spelt differently.

    Didn't know a big rusty nail was what hep20 recommended as pipe clips nowadays! If the person paying the bill is none the wiser...

    If they were my joists, Someone would be replacing them!

    That's criminal. Holes, notches all on top of each other on what are relatively small joists anyway. There is more hole than there is wood.

    Is there no thought? No discussion?
    No common sense? No knowledge?

    This is just basic stuff, what is the world coming to?
