Plumber’s Bummer

This picture was taken from inside a mobile home. The plumber had run the water lines inside the ductwork to prevent freezing. However, he failed to seal the ductwork back. We found the area stuffed with rags and old clothes. The original call was for a water leak (notice the poor connection). When the client was questioned about heating issues, they stated that they couldn’t figure out why they were not getting good air flow!

They had not checked the work done by the plumber and were surprised when we pointed all of this out to them.
