    • TRIVIA (1)

      • Virginia's dishwasher's waste-water line was connected after the trap under her kitchen sink. As a result, sewer gases were able to climb up the line and accumulate in her dishwasher.

    • QUOTES (7)

      • Joe Frangella: The only wiring that I left from the existing wiring is basically three lines. If I can't see it -- if I can't follow it from point "A" to point "B", I replace the line because I just don't trust it.

      • Mike Holmes: Truth is, we don't want to take the house down. We're just going to come close to it.

      • Damon Bennett: Wheere are the air returns?
        Mike Holmes: Good question.
        Mike Holmes: Okay -- so there's no air returns.

      • Mike Holmes: The house is in pretty good shape. It's amazing what people can do to contaminate it. It's just amazing.

      • Mike Holmes: When you're doing electrical, clean up the wires that don't need to be there. Don't turn it into a spaghetti factory. Clean it up; bring it to one point.

      • Mike Holmes: Who the hell runs a copper line with soldered joints for a gas line? I don't know anyone who does this.

      • Mike Holmes: Copper and galvanized or copper and steel --they don't get along. The metals will actually create a corrosion within the pipe -- especially the copper. Now the one you DON'T want a corrosion in is THIS copper because it is gas! We don't do these things. You can blow the house up.
