Unless you leave in a hotel or tenant of an excellent landlord, or under the caring of Jeeves, you should, no, you must know a professional plumber. Of course, you can ignore this advisory if it is someone else’s problem or you are a qualified plumber. Because plumbing is not always a ‘Do it Yourself’ job. There are too many parameters and most importantly the risk involved for the domestic plumber. Plumbing is like an intricate surgery, where you need to know and understand the plumbing lines of a residential or commercial complex. It moves through the structure like your veins, arteries and ultimately spreads like capillaries, a wrong nudge here or there can upset the entire system.
Why a Professional plumber?
Because it is his line of training and living; no professional guy will play with his credential. Of course, in most of the cases, it will not push him to the extreme, but who knows? You cannot play with a critical problem and multiple failures. It will stress you mentally and financially; that’s why you need a professional plumber.
Where to find?
You can find professional plumbing agencies online or from your friends and relatives. Search someone who is not too far off, suppose you leave in Hampstead, then look for an agency based in Hampstead, London and not in Birmingham. You will get quite a few.
Whom to select?
Select someone who is in this business for quite some time and not a fresher. Check the credentials and their list of clients. Check for negative reviews to shortlist your search and of course, look for the terms and conditions. Before engaging your agency, be very clear about the terms and conditions and the warranty of the service provided. Ask, whether there is any hidden cost or not and whether they are available 24X7? Once you are sure, engage the agency. If the agency of your choice is good, then make them your 24/7 Emergency Plumber.
You must select the best available plumber to live in peace, so select with care. Remember plumbing is an emergency service.
