Have your Local Plumber on Speed-Dial
I think sometimes our local plumbers get a bad rap. There are jokes about them and let's face it their job isn't lavish and luxurious. We have seen them often on shows like Dirty Jobs. It takes a commitment to this profession and when your water is leaking and overflowing onto your nice hardwood floors though, plumbing isn't a laughing matter.
I have gleaned a new respect for plumbers however when I realized they do much more than just unclog your toilet. Truthfully, when you think of plumbers that and unclogging the hair in sinks are the first things I think of them doing.
Do you realize that each new home or office that is built requires a plumber? That without them you wouldn't have water in your shower, or sink, nor the waste pipes leading out of the house? Without their knowledge of pipes and plumbing, you could end up with backed up and junked up systems. They are one of the first systems put in, on the ground level of a building project. Much of the plumbing system is put in before the foundation is even poured (especially with a basement).
Finding a good local plumber is something you are going to want to invest time in prior to the emergency of needing one. When there is an emergency you will want their phone number already programed into your cell phone. You won't have time for your husband to learn about becoming a plumber when the sink is overflowing!
