If you’ve ever been faced with such a situation as we’re going to tell you about, you know what it’s like to be completely frustrated on a day you should be celebrating and you’ll understand what we mean when we say our repair technicians are considered just gorgeous to all of our customers!
There are many times of year that we celebrate with family get-togethers and recently during one of these weekends a family had a problem that left them upset and frustrated. Imagine the day they had and how they felt by putting yourself in their shoes…
It’s the night before there’s a big to-do in your family home. There’s so much left to do that you and your spouse and kids are helping get it all done. There’s food to prep still for tomorrow’s meal, dishes to be washed, laundry to be done, and general tidying up around the inside and outside of the home. At least, thank goodness, all the groceries are bought so the trips to the store the next day will stay focused on renewing drinks, ice, or snack foods.
The family is working around the house in their different assigned jobs and things are going along quite smoothly until you run some beans that got a little burned down the disposal. Then catastrophe happens! Beans and some other sludge start to rise up out of the drain!
You breathe in calmly because you’ve had to deal with situations like this before. But also in your past experiences, were times where you couldn’t get the clog unclogged and the matter got only worse as you tried to free it. You’re so hoping this isn’t going to be one of those times…
So you wait a little to see if the water level lowers on its own, but no luck there. Then you try the disposal again, thinking you just hadn’t ground up the beans well enough. But all that happens is the level in the sinks starts to rise more and the sludge water gets spurt out in your face.
At this point, you’re disgusted because you know it’s going to take more than luck to remove this particular plumbing problem. So you reluctantly open up the cabinet to try to take a look at the plumbing.
Unfortunately, even with all the lights on you can’t see back there in the dark underneath area of the sink. So finally you find a flashlight and shine it to the plumbing coming from the walls.
The first thing you notice is a wet cabinet bottom, which means assuredly something is leaking. Oh great, so you have a clog AND a leak going. You jiggle the wastewater pipes to see if anything is loose, and indeed it is loose. Well, you needed to clean out the trap anyway, so you should be able to tighten up the plumbing caps connecting the trap to the rest of the pipe system.
First things first, you need to shut off the water to the sink so you can figure out if there are any other leaks and so no one will inadvertently try to use the water while you’re under the sink trying to fix everything! Since the hot and cold water have shut-off valves conveniently under the sink as well, you’re thinking at least that part will be easy.
But as you take a look at the valve, you notice in the back of your mind that it looks old and rusty, and just as you turn it the whole thing snaps off and the handle comes off in your hand! With water spraying everywhere, you just about drown as you sit up hollering and the family is running around panicking.
Talk about frustrating. You’ve got to finish making all those preparations for tomorrow, yet sadly as you sit in pools of water you realize that everything could be ruined. How are you going to celebrate when you can’t even use your kitchen? Surely you need help and need it right away!
