Before You Call The Plumber

down the drain.JPGBefore you call the plumber,

in fact, before you buy a huge bottle of Drano,

really, before you can’t sleep at night and star freaking out about the tree roots in your pipes, and how much it is going to cost you to redo the plumbing for your entire taking weeks of construction and house costing thousands of dollars,

you should really consider making sure that one of your kids didn’t just half close the drain on your bath tub when you weren’t paying attention.

  1. So it’s NOT just me????

    I once spent $80 calling an appliance repairman about my freezer, only to find out my step-son had unplugged it instead of the iron.

  2. I laughed at this, it is familiar. At least you both have another person to share blame with. I recently called the electrician because there was no power to my washer (I could tell because the power button would not light up) and when he showed up realized it was because the power button does not light up when the door to the washer is open. I have had the washer for a couple of years.

  3. I paid $75 for an electrician to tell me that I wired a ceiling light fixture incorrectly.

  4. I also find that when the pipes are clogged, you do some pre-plumber troubleshooting by means of, “Oh dear child, what the HELL did you stick in there!”

  5. Been there. Oh, been there…

    Glad I’m not alone.
