How Hiring the Wrong Miami Plumber Cost Me a Fortune

There is one story I still need to share with you. It is an eye-opening experience that I have forgotten (perhaps intentionally) until today. I was binge-watching on Netflix this morning and something onscreen reminded me of that one day when I hired a plumbing contractor in Miami to update my bathroom’s fixtures.

plumber MiamiI was still unmarried back then and living alone in Florida when I decided that I wanted to update my bathroom fixtures to water-saving models. It will help me save big on my water bills, I thought. Hastily, I hired a plumber without doing much research and BOY what a big mistake it was!

The tech arrived an hour late of schedule, without any message at all that he will be late or if he will ever come. I told him off for not being a professional who values the time of his customers. Even though he apologized, he had this “what do I care” expression on his face. I shrugged it off and let him do his job.

Less than 30 minutes later, he came out of the bathroom and announced that everything’s done.  I was impressed by his quick work, so I paid him his service fee and let him leave. Several days later, I was convinced that something is off about that plumber’s work. Issues after issues emerge, until I noticed I was paying more than saving.  After that terrible experience, I promised not to hire an unskilled Miami plumber again. Thankfully, I discovered Douglas Orr. I hired them for my home’s plumbing. I have never used other service provider since then.

It’s true, water-efficient bathroom fixtures will help you save money on your water bills, but be sure to hire a licensed and skilled Miami plumbing professional to install them for you so you won’t end up paying more for errors and damages.

Why Homeowners Need to Hire Plumbers in West Palm Beach

A few weeks ago, I posted about my clogged toilet dilemma that went from being a minor issue to a nerve-wracking disaster in a matter of days.  It’s an eye-opening moment for me that made me realized how important it is to never overlook a plumbing issue no matter how small it may seem, and to let the right people handle the problem.

I would give this advice to anyone, particularly to someone I know, who has brought a home in South Florida. He is a close friend of mine who emailed me last night asking for an advice for his home’s plumbing problem. I’d gladly say this to him: “Dude, you don’t have to spend hours after hours learning how to do repairs. Just hire a professional plumber in West Palm Beach.” That’s it, short and exact. He should take my word for it, so he wouldn’t have to endure the same terrible experience that I had to go through to learn any better.

plumbers West Palm BeachI know a lot of men know how to fix minor issues, like myself. Some can even perform complicated plumbing repairs. If you prefer to carry out DIY plumbing repairs or installation in your home, I guess that’s fine. As long as you make sure that you know what you are doing and do everything right. And of course, if anything goes wrong, don’t blame it on anybody.

To my old pal Antony, if you are reading this (which I am sure you are because I plan on sending you the link to this post) go and hire Plumbers 911 for your plumbing trouble instead of going about asking all of your buddies for plumbing tips. They have highly-trained, licensed techs offering drain cleaning in West Palm Beach and other reasonably priced services.
