A hundred years from now....
I was doing work on my house that required me to remove ( with a saws-all) some return pipe and fittings that was in the crawl space. I had to bring it all to work to to retread pipe and separate cuts from cast fitting.
I showed my boss a reducing tee and said "the last time this fitting saw the light of day was when a young man installed it 90 years ago. I am re-using it and the pipe to keep his spirit at rest." When I went home to install the fitting, it split in half! I actually felt a bit of remorse!
I noticed that there was no evidence of wicking or dope on the old pipe. When I turned the wrench to loosen at work, it popped. It must have developed a fracture then.
Oh well. I'm sure the dead man understands!
