    DynoRod Plumbing - What a Joke! (SEE PHOTO)

    Below shows an image of the pipework under my kitchen sink, which was left after a dynorod plumber fixed a dripping pipe. Before when the pipe was dripping, the pipes were professionally clipped. I have complained to the manager at my local dynorod branch and he said that the plumbing engineers don't carry pipe clips! What a joke! What are your views?

    I think a clip is the least of your problems.

    Why the joint between your valve and the washing machine tap? Was it a competition to see how many joints and connections could be fitted in to 6" of pipe?

    I'd accept that as a temporary fix - ie wait here while I go buy some pipe clips but as a perminent fix its no way near acceptable.

    I'd say you don't carry your wallet/cheque book - atleast not until jobs are done properly

    They obviously don't carry any of these either.

    15mm x " Washing Machine Valve with Check Valve | Screwfix.com

    Using this would cut out the majority of the pipework and cut down on the chance of failure.

    The problem is, washing machines and Dishwashers tend to stop and start their supply of water often and quite abruptly. This means a lot of harsh movement in the system. The cord will allow this and will weaken and loosen the joints in quite a short time. This system has a lot of joints to fail.

    Hope you gave him somewhere to hang his stetson and tether his horse while he did all that hard work!

    That's awesome, I think it was going to be used as an example of all the types of fitting you can have, push fit, solder, compression

    Looks like some plumbers thread.

    Why did you have dynorod to do a real plumbers job?

    The bit between the supply valve and the joint looks like new copper!
