For a Professional, Call 'Brown Plumber from Down Under' in Phnom Penh, Cambodia

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss.

When we were building the school it had numerous bathrooms with about 50 or 60 toilets. The Aussie plumber from Sihanoukville changed a lot of the details that the Thai architects had got wrong. Unfortunately they fucked up and installed the septic tank too low and had to install a pump for the overflow. The idiots did not have a dumpy level but used a straight edge and a spirit level.
This new bloke should get shitloads of work from barangs.

No matter how good the job he does inside is, he still has to tie in to a shithouse system. :facepalm:

Oh.
I was under the impression that it was a smartass cover for "leaking pipes fixing"' from a creative pimp.

My mistake.
Nevermind, i'm not here anyway.
