Check out these weird stories and urban plumbing legends!
Let’s face it, plumbers find themselves in some strange situations. On the one hand, they’re outsiders who are constantly given tiny glimpses into the lives of strangers, just like the cable guy or the pizza delivery person. On the other hand, some pretty strange stuff gets flushed down the toilet.

The 2015 AHR Expo, Jan. 26-28 at McCormick Place in Chicago will bring together over 2,000 exhibiting companies and 40,000 visitors from across the spectrum of the heating, plumbing and HVACR industries. With thousands of new products and more than 100 educational sessions, it can all get a bit bewildering.

Contractors, small businesses may see positive change from midterm election, what are your thoughts?
Republicans take control of the Senate and grow lead in the House. New leaership could mean tax and immigration reform. May be good news for industries affected by environmental regulations, such as contractors.

It's a question that doesn't get asked enough: "Why are there still so few women in plumbing?" 
The numbers show how few women are in the plumbing trade, as 2010 data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics found that only 1.5 percent of the 553,000 plumbers, pipelayers, pipefitters and steamfitters were women.

Check out this hyperlapse video of the show floor where the latest equipment in the HVACR industry was on display.

If you're not in the plumbing trade some of these photos would be reprehensible and potentially "not safe for work". For contractors, this just goes to show some of the damage that lies out there. 
So you go on vacation. Or you go camping. Or you visit a bar in a sketchy part of a sketchy town. Nature calls and you either ask or or go looking for the toilet and when you find it... you really REALLY wish you hadn't.
