Hiring a 24/7 emergency plumber!

    Once, I encountered a so-called plumber who was actually a scam artist in disguise. He claimed that he could get something done, but that he couldn’t arrive until two days later. I should’ve just cancelled right on the spot, but he sweet-talked me saying it was the weekend and it was a holiday and that I wouldn’t get cheaper rates anywhere else.

    Two days later, he showed up and made a complete mess of things. Burst pipes, broken toilet, chaos everywhere. I’ve never seen my bathroom in such disarray. I could’ve done a better job if I did it myself, I swear!

    Oh my god. Did you end up paying him?

    Um, no way. He’s lucky I didn’t report him to the BBB. I really should, to be honest, just so I could warn other consumers to never use him again. Plumbers like him should not be in business.

    Yeah, that’s why you need to look for a really good plumbing company and keep their contact information handy. The most important thing is to make sure they offer around-the-clock services, which not every plumber is able to guarantee. You just never know. Something bad can happen to your plumbing all of a sudden with no warning.

    Tell me about it. I went through that once and never want to go through that again. Waiting two days with a toilet that doesn’t even work…ugh, never want to relive that nightmare ever again.
