Do plumbers have a slang lingo?

on Mar 22, 2014
It seems that plumbing (particularly clogged bathroom plumbing) would lend itself to a colorful and nuanced internal lexicon. Discuss.

    hahahaha, good guess... plumbing by nature is vey... shall i say... sexual.... male fittings, female fittings, so no i don't think i'll be posting any "slang" terms today... ; )

    I'm pretty sure that as M. Cary says, my plumbers have heard a lot of slang words for plumbing-related tools and equipment over the years; however, either because I'm old enough to be their mother or because I send them to so many customer service

    Isn't there a saying about something that flows downhill, plus a reference to payday and the parentage of the boss?

    They call a clogged or plugged drain, a drain that is plogged.
