We have all heard the tall tales of fisherman, the scary stories around a campfire, and have seen movies about the things that cannot be explained.  There are things that remain a mystery, things that are only found in the deepest and darkest places in the ocean, only move in the night, or things that you just catch a glimpse of out of the corner of your eye. Similarly, Plumbers can share tales of the discoveries they have found in the deep and dark places that only they are brave enough to embark into.
