Plumbing help quick!

so this contractor, like many, has promised to install plumbing and drywall the area in one day

however i was instructed by a russian on youtube working on residential construction that leaving water on for 3 days is typical to check for "seeping", and that it was not unusual for this to happen even to the best of plumbers

if this contractor seals the seal in 1 day, how will i know if the plumbing is seeping until i already have a wet sealing and need a ceiling repainted?

or worse, seepage can be slow: a very slow drip and open to be a problem leak a month or year later

------------------------

what is your opinion on plumbers that "finish and cover up work in 1 day" please?

have him keep the ceiling open and then pay him to come back and finish the drywall after you feel comfortable. it might cost you a few bucks extra but at least you’ll have some peace of mind about it.

They test the pipes by pressuring them with air pressure.
Let them seal it in.
Have you ever been in a typical Russian home? They check the integrity of the pipes by rubbing donkey dung on the sweated pipe joints.

Stop listening to amateurish Russian bloggers.

no, but i assume he quoted a price to do everything in one trip. and if he’s asked to make 2 separate trips i’d expect him to charge more. because time is money and 2 trips is more time consuming than one trip.

Finally, I, was looking for this type of website for a lot of time. Google was giving other options with many ads and irritating design. This one I like a lot.

In my opinion, you shouldn't trust youtuber on YouTube because the information that youtubers transmit is not always correct. In my opinion, you should contact a specialist who knows his business and can answer your question. When I had problems with sewer pipes, for a long time we could not find a good and high-quality service that could do our job neatly and beautifully for a good amount. As a result, we found a service, but the work was not done very well. I can definitely advise you an emergency plumber Vallejo service that can do you efficiently and well with sewer pipes. Perhaps you should contact them with your problem.

Hello, I believe that if your plumbing is out of order, then you should not try to fix it yourself if you do not have such skills. Once I tried to fix the leaking pipes, at first everything was fine, but after a while the pipes began to leak and flooded my neighbors from below while I was not at home. After that, I was advised to consult a plumber at https://fixerjoe.com/plumbing/ , who explained to me that these pipes need to be replaced.
