Plumber Talk 101

May 30 2016

Any service person that you hire is going to have their own rapport within the business. It is smart to educate yourself on what to expect from the interaction between you and your local plumbing and heating specialist of Honolulu. Hiring a plumber for the first time is definitely a learning experience.

Prepare For Plumber Inquires

When a plumbing and heating company representative comes into your Honolulu home, it is good to have an idea of what they might ask and how your would answer these hypothetical questions. He will need to know where the problem started and how long it has been going on for, any steps you have taken to try and resolve the problem, and anything else regarding the situation. You may need to know where the water shut off valve is to your house as well. Once the plumber has asked all of the questions that he needs answered in order to get started, he will want to be directed to the problem.

The Assessment

The plumber will assess the plumbing issues and offer the solutions that he would recommend. When the solutions are being offered up, you will want to ask questions about the method including how long you can expect the solution to last, cost, and the amount of labor that it will take to complete the repair. While it can be easy to want to choose the cheapest solution, ‘cheap now’ could mean more repairs in the future. As mentioned in our previous blog there are a few things to go over with your plumber before allowing him to begin work: licensing, insurance, cost, time of payment, guarantee, and clean-up policies.
