Watch where you are cutting!

Post by Rorschach » Wed May 09, 2018 7:08 pm

Tee'd into a cold water pipe today, to get enough clearance to move the pipes to get the Tee in I had to cut a bit ouf of the side of the cupboard. Soldering the Tee went fine, all watertight, what wasn't watertight though was the hole I didn't see I cut in the pipe when I was attacking the cupboard :oops: :cb

Sorry, I shouldn’t laugh, but I am selfishly so pleased I am not the only one who does things like this!

Laugh away, I can smile now, I wasn't smiling at the time! I am lucky I hit the pipe just past the bend otherwise the repair would have been a lot more hassle than it was.
