Plumber Shares the Craziest Things He’s Seen on the Job | 22 Words

You might expect police officers, doctors, or firemen to see some crazy things on the job, but would you expect that of a plumber? ...Because we wouldn't!

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: Bfizzle

Out 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: Bfizzle

Surely they would know that plastic and candles would be a recipe for disaster...

Pipes aren't important at this restaurant.

via: Bfizzle

We wouldn't like to be the person cleaning the toilets at this restaurant... or the person using them!

Very badly positioned.

via: Bfizzle

You will really have to reach for it with how this toilet paper is positioned.

Modern make-do taps.

via: Bfizzle

Are the taps broken or are they just a modern addition?

How did you climb up?

via: Bfizzle

Imagine seeing that climbing up the toilet when you went to use it. No thank you!

A good use of spare change.

via: Bfizzle

We wish we had enough spare change to do this to our wall.

Corks... not only for champagne.

via: Bfizzle

Put a cork in it! If it works to stop champagne leaking, then surely it will stop water too.

The hiding place.

via: Bfizzle

There 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: Bfizzle

This 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: Bfizzle

This must be a plumber's worst nightmare. There's no unseeing that one.

A recycled toilet.

via: Bfizzle

An unusual use for a toilet, but the nicest we have seen a toilet look.

A lost connection isn't good.

via: Bfizzle

Do 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: Bfizzle

Looks 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: Bfizzle

Are 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: Bfizzle

Looks like this plumber didn't have saw to sort this pipe out.

A tight squeeze!

via: Bfizzle

Let's hope that he's not claustrophobic...

How not to do grounding.

via: Bfizzle

Grounding 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: Bfizzle

Although 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: Bfizzle

We 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: Bfizzle

This quick fix is a good example of how to slow down water leaking from the tap.

Tampons don't belong down the toilet.

via: Bfizzle

Don't flush your tampons, ladies!

It's now or never.

via: Bfizzle

Rumor 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: Bfizzle

With 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: Bfizzle

Not 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: Bfizzle

Ventilation 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: Bfizzle

Points for creativity and initiative - just add another one and hope for the best.

They won't be getting their glove back.

via: Bfizzle

They could have at least used tape, but at least it stops water from spraying all over!

How did that get down there?

via: Bfizzle

Found 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: Bfizzle

Why take out the old water heater when you can just put the new one in front of it?
