Keaton and Monte Collins appear as Waters and Piper, plumbers. During a busy day in their shop, an heiress (Elsie Ames) flees from a persistent suitor (Eddie Laughton). The jealous suitor challenges Keaton to a duel.
The film is a reworking of Keaton's 1932 feature The Passionate Plumber.
After making 10 shorts for Columbia, Keaton chose not to renew his contract and opted for supporting roles in feature films. Columbia continued to offer the Keaton comedies to theaters well into the 1960s.
