“We have a plumber in West Pennant Hills that comes to our home at three o’clock in the afternoon and fixes things that don’t work right when they do,” said Mike, a resident of West Pennant Hills. “He comes on every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for two hours. I appreciate him so much because this is one of the only places I have found where you don’t have to wait on a service person to come fix your leaking pipes. You can call them anytime if you have a plumbing emergency or a plumbing related problem. They are always on their way.”
Drainage problems in West Pennant Hills are nothing new. Residents have known for years how hard it is to deal with blocked drains and how important it is for after hours plumber West Pennant Hills to be on call for customer service and quick repairs. West Pennant Hills has had its share of issues with blocked drains, clogged sinks and toilets, overflowing garbage pails, and is leaking faucets. But Mike said one thing that new residents and old residents have in common: Everyone has a great plumbing company they recommend.
According to Mike, when he first moved into West Pennant Hills, many of the houses had plaster around the exterior walls and some of them were old. Since he didn’t mind the old house, he and his new neighbors put in newer siding and replaced some of their old windows and doors. A few months later, however, he started having a leaky toilet again, and then another leaky faucet. He called a local after hours plumber West Pennant Hills, who arrived after a short time to find that the sink was filled with water and that a burst pipe was causing the water to pour into the basement.
The after hours plumber West Pennant Hills fixed the pipe using his repair tools, but now faces additional plumbing repairs. He estimates that it will cost him at least two weeks to resolve the problem and says he’s not even sure what is wrong with the drainage systems so he is postponing the work for the week. Now, though, West Pennant Hills residents are left to their own devices to get rid of the water that is now sitting on their floors, their sinks, and their toilets. They have no place to turn for help, and some of them have already purchased buckets or portable toilets to use at home until the plumbers arrive.
There are a number of options available for West Pennant Hills residents who are faced with blocked drains and hot water heaters. According to Mike, he has three options: to call an appliance service technician; to call a West Pennant Hills repairman; and to do the repairs himself. According to several plumbers interviewed by phone, it’s usually best to call an appliance service technician as soon as possible, because most problems with appliances can be fixed without calling Local Emergency Plumber West Pennant Hills. The repairman, meanwhile, is best called after the problem has become severe, and the roots have started to grow into the house.
A plumbing service technician can check out the main valve for a blocked toilet, then fix it using a wrench, according to several West Pennant Hills residents interviewed. If the plumber can’t locate the main valve, he may be able to find the location of a pressure switch that can be changed to correct the problem. With that information, the after hours plumber West Pennant Hills can install new taps, replacing the ones that were clogged with dirt and backed up with accumulated kitchen grease. Sometimes, he may be able to replace the spout to stop gushing, too.
Another plumbing issue that has been increasing in the area is related to the installation of the hot and cold taps. When the installation crew comes to install a hot tap, they often bring along tools for changing the settings. Many homeowners are surprised when they are told that the hot and cold settings can be changed by the residential plumber as well. In some cases, technicians have the ability to adjust both faucets for a perfectly working bathroom.
One area that residents are most upset with is the lack of customer service from some plumbers. Although businesses have mechanics on staff, when customers call at all hours of the day or night, they are rarely greeted by a helpful receptionist or left a message. Instead, they are given a temporary pin number to write down to call back at a later time. Other times, customers call and are left hanging on the phone while the representative tries to get them a hold of the corporate headquarters by searching online. When a plumber does arrive, he is usually gone over an extended amount of time, so customers need to take this into account when choosing a service that offers an on-site representative, or calls after hours or on weekends.
