    LOL at brother

    My brother just screwed through a pipe under the floorboards and I'm stuck with my finger on the hole whilst he's on the phone to a plumber and jumping about like a headless chicken, cursing aswell

    Nice tuesday morning eh

    Have you thought about turning the mains water supply off so you wouldn't have to sit there with your finger over the hole?

    Who says men (I am assuming) can't multitask, plumbing and surfing at the same time, new one on me.

    And yet you your on the internet lol

    have you thought about working for BP?

    Sticking your finger in a hole on a tuesday morning sounds like a good day.

    Do this, will save you a fortune, plus will get you your man card back after going through the pipe in the first place!!

    watta bout that jml putty, supposed to stop leaks? 5 day delivery tho, lol

    could always screw the screw in fully to the pipe and tie a jubilee clip around it with a bit of tape - should hold it till a perm fix.. mine's held for 3 years lmao

    We had a plumber do this once. The gas pipe was about two inches from the water pipe, and once he'd fixed what he came to do, he whacked the nail through the floor board straight through the gas pipe. Jolly days.

    oO surely you could have just got a small piece of metal and welded it over the hole, would have been cheaper

    I need to train as a plumber.

    Lol this thread is EPIC FAIL!

    Read the comments and realise its an easy fix yourself for £5-10

    £135.......who'd pay that?

    guys its all well and good telling him they can fix it themselves but if you havent a clue what your doing or buying and your in a panic the 1st thing you do is call the appropriate company and get the job done properly yes alot of money out of pockect but lesson learnt and job done properly and a mother who wont be mad for very long now!

    No Epic Fail/Facepalm pictures yet?
    I'm dissapointed with this thread today.
