Who is a good Plumber?
Since emergencies that require a plumber are usually unexpected, there are no plans for them either. While countless hours are spent planning family vacations, birth of kids, shopping lists and parties little time is taken to plan for emergencies in families. Usually it is known that which is the smallest dish that will be placed in the dinner table but when it comes to plumbing emergencies, many of us do not know what to do. Many women would panic on such situations. Since there are no drains inside the home on the floors, it can become quite a nuisance to deal with the flooding that happens as a result of the bad plumbing experience.
How much time has been spent on your home lately on planning things like plumber emergencies and what to do? What is the kid going to do in case it occurs? What are the ladies, who usually panic, going to do in case the faucet breaks? How is the emergency plumbing service going to be chosen on an emergency? There is not much time to think anyway.
Once a phone call to the emergency plumber has been made, you need to know whom you’re talking to. The way any company answers the phone says a lot about their services. Is it an answering machine or is it a real person who is genuinely interested on solving your problems? What are you going to do? If you are not talking to an actual plumber over the phone then the price quotes that will be received in case of an emergency could be quite negotiable when the plumber arrives on scene. These problems simply can't be diagnosed over the phone.
Usually the price quote we get over the phone is the base price which can increase once the job is done especially if there are some parts to be bought of the sanitary stores. Usually the plumber will have the necessary things but they don’t carry extra PVC pipes and faucets on their bags! When there is a plumbing emergency, it is actually an emergency and it should be dealt like one. If the phone call is made to a plumber who says he would be there on the morning; it doesn’t make any sense. Nobody wants to wait for the heater over a cold weekend and one certainly doesn’t want a leaking faucet over the whole night just waiting for the plumber to arrive on the morning hours while you hear the water drip.
