Are you sick of seeing your garden turn into a soggy wetland every time it rains lately? After a long, dry summer, heavy rain isn't going to just go away when it hits your lawn. The good news is that, with the help of some handy plumbing tips, you'll be able to recede that water and enjoy your garden without wading into it!
Did you know that homeowners call a plumber with a problem at least once every three years? This is, of course, dependent on the age of your home and the frequency of your plumbing checkups, but the fact remains...you're going to have to give your local plumber a call eventually if you have a plumbing problem that's cropping up.
More often than not, the calls we receive are anything but dramatic plumbing emergencies because people choose to wait till it goes bad. Extreme emergencies often involve damage as well, which end up being more costly than regular maintenance and fixes.
As far as Wellington goes, here are some of the most common calls that we have received from Wellington residents about plumbing issues in their homes.
In today's blog, we'd like to take a little time to talk about who we are and what we do. Being a locally owned and operated plumbing and gasfitting company in Wellington, we feel it's important to make sure that Wellingtonians know us as their go-to for any plumbing, gasfitting and even roof repair emergencies they might run into.
This blog is a continuation of our previous blog, in which we began our topic detailing the benefits of plumbing preparedness.
