    Plumber | Ratchet & Clank Wiki | FANDOM powered by Wikia - April 4, 2019 by admin

    The Plumber (known occasionally as the Mechanic in the original Ratchet & Clank,[1] the WaterWorker,[2] or the Janitor) is a recurring character in the Ratchet & Clank series, who makes an appearance in most entries in the series. He is a mysterious traveling handyman from the Solana Galaxy who repairs leaky plumbings and other mechanical apparatuses all across the universe and beyond. He has seemingly omniscient knowledge, and often appears to provide aid or cryptic advice to Ratchet and Clank during their adventures.

    Ratchet and Clank with The Plumber.

    Ratchet and Clank first encountered the Plumber fixing a pipe on planet Novalis after the mission "Explore the waterworks", which opened up "Buy Infobot from mechanic", in which he then sold them an infobot in exchange for 500 bolts to get a shuttle off the planet, which was being devastated by the blarg. The infobot contained a recording of Skidd McMarx and his agent being shot down over Aridia, providing the two with coordinates to the planet.

    The Plumber later encountered the duo on Batalia, where he had found work on repairing Fort Krontos' heavy turret. While he had successfully repaired it, none of the locals had the skill to use it. After Ratchet offered to use it, noting that the blarg had already chased the Plumber off Novalis and that it would be useless if no one was using the turret, the Plumber reluctantly allowed Ratchet to operate it despite the risk to his job, giving them the mission "Destroy the bombers". After Ratchet manned the turret and brought down several blarg destroyers, the Plumber rewarded them with a Metal Detector that his grandfather had invented to find spare change underneath the surface of any planet in the galaxy.[3]

    The Plumber among others in re-imagined film

    The Plumber had different roles in Qwark's retelling of events and in the holo-film. In Qwark's retelling, the Plumber was entirely aware of his events in the original game, and had a similar role. Ratchet and Clank found him working on a way to escape planet Novalis, entirely aware of his role in the original release. The Plumber granted them an infobot for planet Kerwan, containing details of Chairman Drek's plan to invade the planet, before offering to help repair Ratchet and Clank's ship. Once the two repaired the ship and saved Agnogg Buckwash, the Plumber repaired the ship. Qwark tried to claim that the Plumber, Ratchet, and Clank encountered a "brain-eating zombie T-Rex" here, though Shiv Helix interrupted Qwark's story as this was blatantly untrue. Once the Plumber fixed the ship, Ratchet and Clank thanked him, to which the Plumber ominously replied "see you in the next reboot". Unlike the original release, the Plumber did not appear on Batalia.

    In the holo-film, The Plumber had a much smaller role. First, he showed up as a crowd member gathering around Ratchet on Kerwan. Later, the Plumber appeared at the end of the final credits screen scolding the audience for having not left the movie yet.

    During their adventures in the Bogon Galaxy, Ratchet and Clank encountered the Plumber aboard the flying lab on Aranos, where he had been called in to unblock a pipe, a job he accepted as he was paid triple time to complete it, plus travel expenses.[4] He discovered it was blocked by a Captain Qwark action figure, which he then sold to the duo for 20,000 bolts. After selling it, he ominously told Ratchet he that he would see him "in another year or so".[4]

    The Plumber later met Ratchet and Clank once again, this time in the sewers of Aquatos. Upon their arrival, he ominously exclaimed that they were "right on schedule" (implying he knew when they would show up). He then claimed he was there to make a present for his wife out of Sewer Crystals, and paid Ratchet and Clank for every Sewer Crystal they collected. After they sold him all crystals, he said that he would see the duo again "one of these days."

    While Ratchet and Clank competed in DreadZone, the Plumber was called out due to a sump pump emergency in the Rygylian Nebula, meaning he was unable to appear.[5]

    The Plumber appeared in Ratchet's Dreamtime, as he could be seen floating around. He was the only three dimensional character seen floating.

    Ratchet encountered the Plumber on the Prison Planet in the Prison Showers, fixing the cold water. He asked Ratchet to give him a hand, though this knocked something loose and angered the nearby prisoners, starting a brawl.

    The Plumber in Tools of Destruction

    The Plumber was found on Sargasso where he had created a "high speed interplanetary transportation gizmo", which resembled a toilet, and exclaimed to them that he "almost didn't recognize you in high def". He also strangely gave the two heroes a "3 Centicubit Hexagonal Washer" just in case they needed it. On top of this, he said that the weapon capable of vaporizing the cragmites they were looking for did not exist, claiming that he'd been "everywhere in this universe and beyond" and had never encountered such a device. This led Clank to speculate that the cragmites had just been moved rather than destroyed.

    Clank later used the Hexagonal Washer to repair the Dimensionator after defeating Emperor Tachyon, as it had been broken during the fight, allowing him and Ratchet to return to their dimension.

    The Plumber in Clank's mind

    Clank found The Plumber in when entering his subconscious through one of the Mnemonic Chambers in the Great Clock. The Plumber claimed to be there after taking a wrong turn in Clank's memory banks, having originally intended to enter Qwark's brain, which he thought he had arrived in because of all the emptiness. The Plumber then told Clank he must accept his new responsibilities, even though the first steps are the hardest, and then cryptically told him "I wouldn't risk any more than 6 minutes," before Clank abruptly awoke.

    This advice later helped Clank. When Alister Azimuth killed Ratchet while racing to enter the Orvus Chamber in the Great Clock, Clank recalled the Plumber's advice, and reset the Clock back six minutes, just long enough for him to prevent Ratchet from dying but short enough to not damage space and time.

    The Plumber rescues Talwyn, Ratchet and Vorn from drowning in the aqueduct

    The Plumber watches Talwyn, Ratchet and Vorn run off after saving them from drowning in the aqueduct

    The Plumber appears in Issue 6: Bros Before Foes. Ratchet, Talwyn Apogee and Vorn Garblak nearly drown after attempting to swim to the opposite side of an aqueduct in the Apogee Space Station, as the door from the inside is locked shut. The Plumber unlocked the door from the outside and pulled the three out just before they faced certain death, warning them that the aqueduct is not designed for swimming.

    Ratchet, Clank, Captain Qwark, and Dr. Nefarious were confronted by the Plumber on planet Magnus after discovering their exit platform was damaged. Stranded and freezing to death at the weather of the icy tundra, the four were encountered by the Plumber after he was sent to replace someone else's job to fix the platform.

    The Plumber fixed the platform, and before leaving on it, Ratchet asked if the Plumber had any mystical advice that would help them in their quest to defeat Nevo Binklemeyer. The Plumber simply questioned Ratchet, and gave him a wink before the four went on their way, perhaps knowing that Nevo was not the true enemy.

    The Plumber skin on the blue team in Full Frontal Assault

    The Plumber appeared in the Starship Phoenix II and made comments as the QForce move around him. He then left to Markazia after Stuart Zurgo sent a transmission. Zurgo used a Hologuise to disguise himself as The Plumber and access the Starship Phoenix II later. When Ratchet received a distress call from the Plumber and arrived on scene, he realized that the Plumber on board the Phoenix II was an impostor and quickly returned to the ship.

    The Plumber is also a skin in in multiplayer unlocked by purchasing the Classic Pack downloadable content.

    The Plumber in a communication to Ratchet.

    The Plumber appeared giving advice to Ratchet in communication as he pursued Vendra and Neftin Prog who had kidnapped Fleebar Snuttleblast.

    At some point before the game, the Plumber invented the RYNO VII, breaking it up into holo-plans for safekeeping.

    The Plumber first showed up on the Nebulox Seven Prison Ship, apparently doing contract work between toilets. During his work, he got himself locked inside a vault on the ship, which was able to withstand the explosion of the Nebulox when the Prog twins had destroyed it. This vault eventually landed on planet Thram in the Zarkov Sector. In order to unlock the vault, Ratchet collected six keys from across the swamp on Thram, at which point the Plumber could assemble the RYNO VII for Ratchet once given the holo-plans. However, if the player unlocked the safe again in challenge mode already possessing the RYNO VII, the Plumber was gone.

    The Plumber is a mysterious being, of the same species as other characters from the Solana Galaxy, such as Agnogg Buckwash, who has demonstrated apparent omniscience throughout his encounters with Ratchet and Clank, as well as awareness of the fourth wall. His omniscience is used as a plot device, but also to break the fourth wall and provide comic relief. For instance, the Plumber know when he would run into Ratchet and Clank, as he noted in Going Commando that he would see them in a year, and then noted in Up Your Arsenal (a year later) that they were right on schedule. Later, in Tools of Destruction, the Plumber knew that the duo would need a 3 Centicubit Hexagonal Washer to repair the Dimensionator when escaping Tachyon, and in A Crack in Time, he knew that Clank would need to travel back six minutes to save Ratchet. However, the knowledge he provided was always cryptic, as he never gave away too much to the duo, only enough to help them complete their quest. The Plumber is also aware of the fourth wall, commenting in Tools of Destruction that he almost didn't recognize Ratchet and Clank in high definition. Similarly, in the 2016 re-imagined release of Ratchet & Clank, he is entirely aware of the events of the original Ratchet & Clank, and is aware that he is in a reboot.

    The Plumber also claimed to have been "everywhere in this universe, and beyond" in Tools of Destruction, demonstrating apparent omnipresence. He could reach every galaxy, and also entered Clank's subconscious and mentioned being able to travel to other minds as well. While the Plumber did seem to provide invaluable knowledge to the duo, he nonetheless claimed during many of his meetings with them that they were coincidental, saying that he was hired to do another job.

    The Plumber is apparently a skilled inventor, able to create interplanetary transportation devices, as well as the RYNO VII, the most powerful weapon in the universe when it was built.

    Tools of Destruction concept art

    The Plumber was voiced by Neil Flynn, the voice of "The Janitor" on the TV sitcom Scrubs, in the original trilogy. However, he was voiced by Jess Harnell in all of his appearances from Tools of Destruction onwards, including in the re-imagined release of Ratchet & Clank, both by Flynn and Harnell. Jess Harnell also voiced the Smuggler, a similar character who appeared in most entries following Tools of Destruction to provide Ratchet help.

    Series writer TJ Fixman had written a reason why the Plumber appeared in every game, which was never revealed before Fixman left Insomniac.[6]

    Insomniac concept artist Dave Guertin based The Plumber's design on his father and his own life as a construction worker.[7]

    The Plumber has appeared in some form in every title in the series, including the Ratchet & Clank Manga: Volume 1, aside from Deadlocked (though his absence was explained at the end of the credits), Quest for Booty and Going Mobile. His appearances have become a running joke. Initially, he provided mostly optional missions after his first appearance, though from Tools of Destruction onwards, provided a more crucial plot role in his appearances, often showing up in the right place at the right time.

    Plumbers – Asbestos Exposure & Mesothelioma Risks - April 4, 2019 by admin

    Plumbers work as part of a construction team and work closely with pipefitters and steamfitters on large-scale jobs and industrial projects. They may install plumbing systems in new construction or they may be called out to fix a problem with an existing system.

    However, plumbers may also work on projects by themselves. They respond to homeowner calls and businesses about leaks or blockage that affects the plumbing in the building and calls about the installation of large appliances such as laundry machines, dishwashers and garbage disposal systems.

    Since 1963, more than 28 billion feet or about 5.3 million miles of copper plumbing tube was installed in U.S. buildings. Thats equivalent to a coil wrapping around the Earth more than 200 times. The current installation rate now exceeds a billion feet per year.

    The amount of plumbing work needed in the United States put plumbers at risk of toxic asbestos exposure because of a number of asbestos-containing products they use and repair. Most of these parts and products were manufactured between the 1940s and 1970s.

    In 2018, an International Journal of Epidemiology study highlighted former plumbers as one of the highest-risk groups for asbestos-related diseases. Plumbers are almost 16 times more likely to develop mesothelioma than the general population, according to data gathered by British researchers.

    As plumbers cut, saw and sand asbestos paper, drill asbestos-containing products to fit certain dimensions, saw and join pipes or sand down block insulation, asbestos fibers are released into the air. Once these fibers are inhaled, some can remain in a human body for its lifetime. The accumulation of fibers can cause inflammation and scarring that may lead to the development of mesothelioma cancer and other asbestos-related illnesses.

    Asbestos was commonly used in insulation of pipes, boilers, ducts and tanks for its fire and heat resistant properties. Pipes are among the most common product that plumbers come into contact with. They cut, saw and drill pipes to specific lengths and sizes to fit certain dimensions of an area in a house or building, which disturbs asbestos fibers used in the products insulation and releases them into the air where they can be inhaled.

    Plumbers, pipefitters and steamfitters also face asbestos risks by handling pumps, valves and gaskets that contain asbestos. Pumps and valves are installed to pressurize and circulate water and other fluids, while gaskets are used inside of these pumps and valves to prevent leaks. Over time, these components can wear out and may need to be replaced. When plumbers remove or replace these asbestos-containing products, the fibers are frequently released into the air where they can be easily inhaled by workers.

    Our Patient Advocates can answer your questions about occupational asbestos exposure and find you an attorney

    In a study published in 2007 in The Annals of Occupational Hygiene, epidemiological data suggests a significant risk of asbestos exposure to maintenance workers, including plumbers, who through their work may disturb asbestos-containing materials. It also found that plumbers working in areas which had supposedly been stripped of asbestos just prior to their starting work suggested that poor removal, clean-up and clearance practice presents a significant risk of asbestos exposure to plumbers.

    The asbestos exposure of industrial plumbers was measured using personal passive samplers developed at the Health and Safety Laboratory. The results of the TEM (transmission electron microscopy) analysis of the passive samplers showed 62 percent of workers were exposed to a significant amount of asbestos fibers in Round 1, and 58 percent were exposed in Round 2. The estimated lifetime risk of death from asbestos-related cancer for an exposure from age 20 for 40 years would be 68 per 100,000.

    In another study of 7,121 members and retirees of the United Association of Plumbers and Pipefitters in California, 16 were found to have died from mesothelioma between 1960 and 1979.

    In a preliminary case-control study, welders, auto mechanics and plumbers had an increased rate of asbestos-related lung cancer. A cross-sectional study found plumbers and pipefitters who were exposed to asbestos had an excess of radiographic abnormalities.

    In a survey to determine whether there were previously unrecognized sources of asbestos exposure in British Columbia, incident mesothelioma cases and population-based controls were interviewed about their occupational histories and asbestos exposures. Plumbers and pipefitters were among the occupations that were at an elevated risk of asbestos exposure.

    Jurors awarded former Union Carbide employee Larry Stewart $2.2 million in economic damages, $500,000 in non-economic damages and $6 million in punitive damages, and awarded his wife $500,000 in non-economic damages after finding Union Carbide exposed him to asbestos during his career as a plumber.

    Stewart worked as a plumber from 1968 until he was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2007. He worked on large projects and was apparently exposed to asbestos contained in joint compound used by drywallers, who put up walls as soon as the plumbers finished their work. Stewart claimed that sanding by drywallers created dust that would fill several rooms at a time and he didnt think it was harmful because he never received any warning.

    Roger Mauro and his wife won a Mauro $7,500 in compensation for damages for emotional distress related to his fear of developing cancer. Mauro worked at Ancora State Psychiatric Hospital as a repairman and a plumber-steamfitter, and from 1964 until the mid-to-late 1970s, he was exposed to pipe covering, asbestos cement and other asbestos-containing materials. He also was exposed to asbestos when he removed old insulation material and installed new insulation.

    Mauro did not have mesothelioma or another asbestos-related disease when the case went to trial hence his low compensation but he was informed by a doctor that he had bilateral thickening of both chest walls and calcification of the diaphragm.

    Celotex Corp., GAF Corp., Union Carbide, Johns Manville, Pacor Inc., Owens-Illinois Co., Garlock, Inc., Kentile Floors, Certainteed Products Corp., Fibreboard Corp/Owens-Corning Fiberglas Corp., Pittsburgh Corning Corp., Eagle-Picher Industries, Inc., Keene Corp. and Kaiser Gypsum Co. have been involved in asbestos litigation for exposing plumbers.

    John Crane and The Flintkote Company also manufactured asbestos products used by plumbers.

    Anybody else sick of ‘Joe the Plumber’ ? | Yahoo Answers - April 1, 2019 by admin

    1) You don't need a Master Plumbers license to be a plumber. Master Plumber License requires years of work underneith a Master Plumber to achieve the license. Most counties around the country don't even require an Apprentis or Journeyman's license to perform plumbing work. In counties that do require plumbing work to be performed by a licensed plumber, it (at strictest) requires that the owner of the company have a Master Plumbers license and he oversee or check the work. Most people, once they attain a Master Plumbers License will open their own business and quit working for their boss, or they'll demand a significantly higher salary. Joe has his Journeymans license, so yes he is licensed (which isn't required everywhere), and he's almost qualified to get his Masters license.

    2) He doesn't evade taxes, at one point (unknown as to when), he was behind on his taxes. It's a very common problem around America when people are caught in rough financial times. It could have been when he first got married and before he was an experienced enough plumber to be making a decent wage. Maybe he lost his job and so did his wife. Just because people owe(d) debt in their lives doesn't make them crooks, the vast majority of this country has at one point owed a debt.

    Am I sick of hearing about Joe? Yeah, but it does scare the crap out of me that the Obama Campaing attacked a regular citizen in the manner they did. The man had no part in politics and if he would have just left him well-enough-alone, the matter would have passed. Instead, now he has to harrass the guy and spend all this money trying to dig up any dirt he can on him and lie/spin the information into a defamitory campaign. Why? It makes no sense. Now that it's been brough to the public light it's a fine illustration of a great concern against Obama, and no it's not far fetched or a desperate scare tactic.

    Besides that, what's up with Biden not answering the hard questions and censoring/black balling News Stations from interviewing him or Obama anymore??

    building construction: Plumbing

    Domestic water-supply systems for low-rise residential buildings have two sources, either municipal water-distribution systems or, where

    One of the problems of every civilization in which the population has been centralized in cities and towns has been the development of adequate plumbing systems. In certain parts of Europe the complex aqueducts built by the Romans to supply their cities with potable water can still be seen. However, the early systems built for the disposal of human wastes were less elaborate. Human wastes were often transported from the cities in carts or buckets or else discharged into an open, water-filled system of ditches that led from the city to a lake or stream.

    Improvement in plumbing systems was very slow. Virtually no progress was made from the time of the Romans until the 19th century. The relatively primitive sanitation facilities were inadequate for the large, crowded population centres that sprang up during the Industrial Revolution, and outbreaks of typhoid fever and dysentery were often spread by the consumption of water contaminated with human wastes. Eventually these epidemics were curbed by the development of separate, underground water and sewage systems, which eliminated open sewage ditches. In addition, plumbing fixtures were designed to handle potable water and water-borne wastes within buildings.

    The term plumbing fixture embraces not only showers, bathtubs, lavatory basins, and toilets but also such devices as washing machines, garbage-disposal units, hot-water heaters, dishwashers, and drinking fountains.

    The water-carrying pipes and other materials used in a plumbing system must be strong, noncorrosive, and durable enough to equal or exceed the expected life of the building in which they are installed. Toilets, urinals, and lavatories usually are made of stable porcelain or vitreous china, although they sometimes are made of glazed cast iron, steel, or stainless steel. Ordinary water pipes usually are made of steel, copper, brass, plastic, or other nontoxic material; and the most common materials for sewage pipes are cast iron, steel, copper, and asbestos cement.

    Methods of water distribution vary. For towns and cities, municipally or privately owned water companies treat and purify water collected from wells, lakes, rivers, and ponds and distribute it to individual buildings. In rural areas water is commonly obtained directly from individual wells.

    In most cities, water is forced through the distribution system by pumps, although, in rare instances, when the source of water is located in mountains or hills above a city, the pressure generated by gravity is sufficient to distribute water throughout the system. In other cases, water is pumped from the collection and purification facilities into elevated storage tanks and then allowed to flow throughout the system by gravity. But in most municipalities water is pumped directly through the system; elevated storage tanks may also be provided to serve as pressure-stabilization devices and as an auxiliary source in the event of pump failure or of a catastrophe, such as fire, that might require more water than the pumps or the water source are able to supply.

    The pressure developed in the water-supply system and the friction generated by the water moving through the pipes are the two factors that limit both the height to which water can be distributed and the maximum flow rate available at any point in the system.

    A buildings system for waste disposal has two parts: the drainage system and the venting system. The drainage portion comprises pipes leading from various fixture drains to the central main, which is connected to the municipal or private sewage system. The venting system consists of pipes leading from an air inlet (usually on the buildings roof) to various points within the drainage system; it protects the sanitary traps from siphoning or blowing by equalizing the pressure inside and outside the drainage system.

    Sanitary fixture traps provide a water seal between the sewer pipes and the rooms in which plumbing fixtures are installed. The most commonly used sanitary trap is a U bend, or dip, installed in the drainpipe adjacent to the outlet of each fixture. A portion of the waste water discharged by the fixture is retained in the U, forming a seal that separates the fixture from the open drainpipes.

Fox's 24-hour service line told me it might be a few hours before they could come out, but that they would be here. at 2:15am, Corey arrived, with a smile on his face and ready to help.

    Called earlier this week needing a outside faucet replaced. The customer service agent was great, asked when it was convenient for me to have a tech come out. We schedule it for a Friday morning at 9am. The Tech called me 30 mins before confirming my address and let me know that he would be there in 15-20 mins and I also got an email stating the same info. The tech arrived on time, was very nice and looked at this issue told me it would take about 1 hr to fix and the quote was what I expected. He got to work and was complete within the time expected. He was very polite and showed me that it was all done and explained that the faucet he put in was frost protected, Great for up her in the northwest! Would recommend this business. Bottom line they are professional and no big surprises when the bill comes due.

    Fox came through for us! I had an outside faucet that needed a professional. With temperatures plummeting, I knew it had to be replaced before the line burst and caused more problems. I was hesitant about the about the prices, but the manager called me and addressed all of my concerns. Great customer service is what sets you ahead of the other company that I spoke with. Fox has been in business for years. Knowledge of the business and the customer is why. My 35-year-old outside faucet is new again, and my washer faucets are new too.
