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.
I 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.
