Fernando's family needs a bit of help if you can assist.

Immediate need is a plumber to install new kitchen water shut off valves, new faucet, and new water heater.

I will pay for material. If you can do the work, or lead me to a plumber in Tijuana it will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Scot

I referred Scot to an Interior Design friend of mine in Playas de Tijuana who has lots of contacts and speaks excellent English.

FdT's (RIP) house inspection report


My friend Gabriela reported back to me today about the work that our friend Fernando Garcia Obeso's (RIP) house needs. Gabriela does Interior design and is a real, solid go-getter.

Gabriela at her music event "Eternal" in September



Ok finally got to see the issues with the plumbing...

But anyway... For plumbing its 4 things...




- the water heater is leaking so if theres a way to get it fixd ok but if theres a way to replace it...much better.. But ill ask around of how much for fix it



- the kitchen.. needs to replace the faucet and seal it
- theres the instalation of the drain outside that needs a cap...because of not having it..that it spills everything out

- a shower in the bathroom is being used as storage because it doesnt drain...so there i would think of having the plumber put the snake. In to see if that solves it.

Ferna's posts and deeds and the love shown for him are all irrefutable evidence of a man of deep integrity and humanity. I regret never making his acquaintance. DEP.

I still have the "Got Baja" sticker he sold me at the Pyramid book signing.
The bidding starts at ...?
All proceeds to the family.

plumbing repair


With Scot's kind offer to cover the cost of material, Barbara and I are able to help pay for the labor to have these things fixed.

I'm not sure how that would happen, I should think we Nomads can get this act of kindness accomplished without using up the Gofundme money.

Doug or Ken Cooke, can you somehow assist with this aspect?

If the hot water leaks it is one of two things:

The glass liner is shot or the joints were put together badly. The fittings
do look rough and should be inspected. Hopefully that is the issue.

The PVC work under the sink is horrible and should be completely redone. The bottom 90 going to the wall doesn't even have a compression coupling. (almost guaranteed to leak)

The shower issue can be due to years of soap building up in the pipe (think of cholesterol blocking arteries) and can be cleaned out. The black fitting at the top of the pipes looks like a one way air gap which is good but if it is just a cap it should be replaced to an air gap so water will flow freely.
