In A Muddle? Call Your Local Plumber

A plumber is often at the front lines of terrible disaster. He or she gets into the wet and sometimes worse, very yucky stuff. It all depends on whether the situation is a flood, aging pipes or man-made, but one thing seems certain: fixing pipes and drains is not like some jobs around the house; jobs which, if they go wrong, are no big deal.

In other words, do not let your D. I. Y. Enthusiast start messing with the bathtub. It takes training to get these things right. A bit of money spent on hiring a professional can save major expenditure on repair of water damage later. With the living room walls, at least you can paint over a mistake, or cover it with a picture.

Plumbers arrive at a scene in many capacities. Each day is different. One thing many will do is make themselves available for major problems which can happen at any time of day or night. They advertise a call-out number. Like paramedics, they are twenty-four hour, seven days each week and like injury or illness, pipes burst at the most inconvenient times.

With any luck you found some small spot of damp before the corresponding leak got big and nasty. A little drip perhaps. This means you can call out the professionals during regular hours if your or someone else is home during the day to let them in. If not, then at least six in the evening is better than two in the morning, both in terms of the bill and avoiding sleep deprivation as he clears a blocked drain that has the bedroom dripping.

For non-emergency situations, customers can book a check-up. This is a wise, proactive approach to owning your building. Plumbers use these opportunities to ensure there are no safety issues that need dealing with, or nothing simple like faucets requiring new washers or toilets that need ball cocks to be replaced. They may try to convince a customer to switch over to modern equipment, but you can always say no. Still, a change may make financial and safety sense. Just figure out if the individual is independent or has a vested interest in your choice.

Renovation and building from the base up are two other times that see plumbers busy. Here you may want integral systems ripped out, not just the wallpaper in your bedrooms. Switch your water heater, air conditioning system and other items that have become costly to run. Install a water purifier right at the tap.

If your service provider has adequate knowledge and training on the topic, this might be a good time to find out more about energy alternatives. He may be able to install low-flush toilets and lower-output shower heads. This is also a good time to talk about solar thermal water heating, though perhaps before the roofer is finished up top.

In public settings, these men and women are on task with some of the worst jobs. They go into sewers and fix old drains. They clean-up after nasty messes in private, business and public spaces. Every time you flush a public toilet or use a water fountain, be grateful for the people who look after these delicate operations. When the fountain in town square is squirting forth beautifully, give him or her credit for making such a lovely sight possible.
