Plumbing In Wisconsin

All the hack work is getting out of control. I have basically been forced back into mid Wisconsin regions and already do not enjoy what I am seeing.

I recently came across repairs made to a main sewer line in house.Seeing how the work was done is a major concern & shows how RECKLESS people are becoming so that they can get a quick and maximized profit with no concern other than " turning a profit". Your right no one can compete with your practices -your prices are the lowest - but they are so far out of anything that is reasonable that no one in their right minds would take on the risk to perform work in such a manner.

Now I am glad that the situation was not out of control yet - As in I did not blow myself up. What comes from sewer lines - " Methane Gas" -

Is it safe to assume that rubber couplings are acceptable forms of materials for main sewer lines? NO!!!!!!!!!!! Sorry you are not making repairs with a $3 coupling, this is illogical, ill advised, dangerous, & shows the utmost incompetence in what you are doing.

Now had you got Shielded couplings maybe you could get away with it. But instead of $3 you would have to spend $110. So by doing this you are showing me that my life or other people's or even your own life holds the value of $107.00

Here is a link to a shielded coupling

Additional Info On Wisconsin Laws for those who think it's a free for all -

The myth that building permits are not required in Wisconsin.

Building permits are not required in the State of Wisconsin for those who are "Owner Occupants of the Dwelling". In this situation you do not need dwelling contractor certifications. For all houses that are not owner occupied / and work is not being completed by the owner, Building Permits Are Required.

Plumbing does not fall under a " Dwelling Contractor Certification" or a Dwelling Contractor Qualifier" in Wisconsin. Plumber's have their own credential requirements. A link to those requirements is below.

I thought before we all start running around playing " MASTER PLUMBER " it would be good to have some kind of understanding of the situation.

Still in Dresser on MN / WI border. Going to get deeper into Wisconsin soon because not working twin cities anymore. I have made it to Chippewa / Eau Claire Counties so far.

Tough switch now I have to fight the sun Morning & Night.

What residential property has a 10" in-house sewer line?????
I would like to see photos on this BS story!
Largest around here is 4" and a Fernco cost $8 NOT $110
And this $8 coupling conforms to the requirement of ASTM C1460

That might be news but generals don't want to do p&p I don't know what you trying to prove? Do you think builders work for sg in wi or any plumbers for that matter? They get what they pay for period. If you work for these prices good for you, I know few people that left area for many reasons that were more than qualified. So you take their place or being forced, you know why? no one wants it

I hire plumbers, electricians, excavators, and HVAC contractors in WI and MN. Safeguard is the majority of my business. Not sure where you are going with this.

This is 100% correct ,as a licensed General Contractor in Wisconsin I Am not able to pull plumbing and electrical permits ,These are completly specialized trades that require a completly different series of credentialing.....
