Plumbing is just like running a marathon...

...the only proper way to handle it is the ancient way. 

For the marathon, if one is going to run 26.2 miles, the only appropriate thing to do is die at the end of it, as legend has Pheidippides doing. 

Plumbing, meanwhile, (derived from the Latin plumbum, -i, lead), should drive one to madness through lead poisoning long before having to replace the pipes.

Inexplicably, the modern world doesn't treat either of these things the good old fashioned way...and plumbing still drives you crazy --- WITHOUT the longevity!
