One plumber, who goes by the nickname "Bfizzle," decided to share some of the horrors and delights he has seen in people's homes whilst working.
It's clear to see that some people are creative in their bathrooms - from BBQ toilets, bandaged pipes, to make-do taps, this plumber has seen it all. He must really love his job, because exploded toilets would be enough to put anyone off going to work!
When mother nature takes over...
via: BfizzleOut of a plumber's control, plants blocking the pipes won't be a fun job to fix.
Plastic toilets and candles don't mix.
via: BfizzleSurely they would know that plastic and candles would be a recipe for disaster...
Pipes aren't important at this restaurant.
via: BfizzleWe wouldn't like to be the person cleaning the toilets at this restaurant... or the person using them!
Very badly positioned.
via: BfizzleYou will really have to reach for it with how this toilet paper is positioned.
Modern make-do taps.
via: BfizzleAre the taps broken or are they just a modern addition?
How did you climb up?
via: BfizzleImagine seeing that climbing up the toilet when you went to use it. No thank you!
A good use of spare change.
via: BfizzleWe wish we had enough spare change to do this to our wall.
Corks... not only for champagne.
via: BfizzlePut a cork in it! If it works to stop champagne leaking, then surely it will stop water too.
The hiding place.
via: BfizzleThere must be an interesting story behind when and how this ended up down there.
No more getting wet whilst trying to turn the shower on!
via: BfizzleThis shower looks like a recipe for disaster. Not only the huge step to get in, these homeowners must have decided to move the shower but forgot to move the rest of it.
Not a sight for anyone's eyes
via: BfizzleThis must be a plumber's worst nightmare. There's no unseeing that one.
A recycled toilet.
via: BfizzleAn unusual use for a toilet, but the nicest we have seen a toilet look.
A lost connection isn't good.
via: BfizzleDo we even want to know what this is a mix of? We hope the plumber held his nose whilst fixing this job!
Is there anything a bandage can't fix?
via: BfizzleLooks like a nurse applied this one considering how well it has been put on. Whilst a bandage helps to fix lots of things, we don't think this is one of them.
Replacement pipes might be needed here!
via: BfizzleAre pipes like this even possible to clean? We think they might just need new ones. We certainly wouldn't want anything to do with any water that came out of there.
A make-do job.
via: BfizzleLooks like this plumber didn't have saw to sort this pipe out.
A tight squeeze!
via: BfizzleLet's hope that he's not claustrophobic...
How not to do grounding.
via: BfizzleGrounding should mean your metal pipes go back into the ground rather than the house, not in this case though.
A different style of BBQ stand.
via: BfizzleAlthough the heat might kill the germs, we don't think we'd want to eat food from this BBQ.
How a leak shouldn't be fixed.
via: BfizzleWe don't think tape is ever a permanent solution to a problem, no matter how well it is put on.
How to improvize fixing a leak.
via: BfizzleThis quick fix is a good example of how to slow down water leaking from the tap.
Tampons don't belong down the toilet.
via: BfizzleDon't flush your tampons, ladies!
It's now or never.
via: BfizzleRumor has it that Elvis died on the toilet, so this toilet seat is quite fitting.
It's not a surprise that the water won't go down...
via: BfizzleWith all the trash that can go down the kitchen sink, a pipe being blocked like this is unsurprising.
An appliance at the end of its life.
via: BfizzleNot even a bit of paint could save this old water heater. All appliances have a life span and with all the rust and holes, it looks like this one has reached the end of it.
Venting back inside the house.
via: BfizzleVentilation pipes should be letting gases escape to the outside, allowing oxygen in. Not these, they're releasing it back into the house.
Nothing another valve can't fix.
via: BfizzlePoints for creativity and initiative - just add another one and hope for the best.
They won't be getting their glove back.
via: BfizzleThey could have at least used tape, but at least it stops water from spraying all over!
How did that get down there?
via: BfizzleFound underground, bottles like this are often coined "witch bottles" if full of urine and pins. The idea is that it will stop witches from entering your home.
Always a way around replacing a water heater...
via: BfizzleWhy take out the old water heater when you can just put the new one in front of it?
