My son told me that if I ever needed plumbing services, I should call him.
He said if there was any hint that we were having a problem with our pipes, our toilet, or anything else that had to do with the water or sewage, we should call him before it became an emergency.
One of the smartest things we ever did was send our son to technical school to become a plumber. He has since graduated plumbing school, and become a certified master plumber. He is also a certified HVAC technician. Whenever we need any help with plumbing or HVAC, he is there to help. Last week, our son was away at school, being recertified for his master plumber’s license. The plumbing broke in the basement, and we did not know how to repair. My husband said something about needing a star drill, but I didn’t know what he was talking about. Our son was to be home in a day or two, but we didn’t want to lose all the water that was pouring out of the wall. My husband turned the water off, and we made do with the water we could put into the tub before turning the water off. We thought about calling an emergency repair plumbing service, but we knew how expensive that was. Instead of calling for emergency repair plumbing services, we made do with a full tub of water for flushing, 6 gallons of spring water for cooking and drinking, and the showers were going to wait until our son got home to do the emergency plumbing repair for us.
