How to Speak “Plumber”

plumbing repair stewartville gander plumbingIf you need to call a plumber for plumbing repair at your Stewartville home, it can sometimes be pretty stressful. You might be dealing with a flooded basement or some other type of mess, and you might be worried about what it will take to repair the damage. There are a few things you can do to help facilitate the plumbing repair work, and one of the best ways is to clearly communicate with your plumber about what’s going on and what caused the problem.

When your plumber first arrives, start by giving him some background on the problem and why you called for plumbing repair in the first place. Answer questions like: when did you first notice the problem? Has it gotten progressively worse? Have you tried to make any repairs on your own? How old is the broken or damaged plumbing fixture or appliance (if you know the answer to this question)? Who installed it, and was that person a professional plumber or a do-it-yourselfer?

If you called a plumber to help with a bathroom or kitchen remodel, then clear communication is just as important. A plumber from Gander Plumbing can help advise you on aspects of your remodeling project you may not be sure about. For example, let’s say you want to buy a new dishwasher for your new kitchen, but you aren’t sure what kind or brand to purchase. We can help you select a dishwasher that will meet your family’s needs, and most of the dishwashers on the market nowadays are water- and energy-efficient, which means you could see some savings on your water and electric bill in the long run.

Make sure we know exactly what you need us to do during your remodeling project. Do you need new pipes put in or existing ones moved? Do you need us to install bathroom or kitchen fixtures? How about water-using appliances like a garbage disposal or even a new toilet? You should be sure you are totally clear with what you want and need from us, and we will be sure to make it happen.

These are just a few helpful hints on how to talk to your plumber when he comes to visit your home or business.
