When both of us had a major plumbing issue in our front yard, both of us were undoubtedly overjoyed to our neighbor who lives one street over. He’s the owner of a local plumbing supplier, & he made his way right over to our flooded front yard with his industrial strength plumbing tools to help clear out the drains in our yard & get all the plumbing systems back to normal again. It’s a delight to have a nearby plumber right here in the city that you can call when there’s a plumbing emergency; I can simply tell you: nothing strikes fear into your heart prefer a giant muddy pond seeping up higher & higher through your yard threatening to enter your front door and windows! I’m not positive what the problem was other than a jammed pipe that usually flows out through the storm drainage system, but whatever the plumbing concern was, he used his plumbing snake to get us up and running again. I was so thrilled to see him coming through the gate with his plumbing tools that I particularly could have kissed him! Unfortunately, in order to plant one on him, I would’ve had to wade through a foot of muck & mud to even reach our plumber. He said that the plumbing back there is most likely outdated & the pipes that lead out to the storm drain can get easily clogged by tree roots and other debris that somehow gets into the pipes. He only charged us a small amount to repair it & then he said that anytime the pipes back up again, just to let him know & he will be right over to help us out. I am so joyful to have a professional plumber living down the street!
