4FastPlumber Provides Useful Plumbing Tips On Website
Section on local company’s website seeks to help customers prepare for service visits
November 09, 2016 ( datsyn.com) – 4FastPlumber, a local Virginia plumbing company, has included a section on their website that provides detailed advice for potential customers and the general public on how best to prepare for a plumbing service visit. Such personal knowledge of their plumbing system may be able to give customers a greater awareness of plumbing issues they may be experiencing and may also help to prevent plumbing issues in the future.
According to the article available on 4FastPlumber’s website under the heading “Tips and Hints,” the primary reason people need to prepare for a service visit from a plumbing professional is cost. Because plumbing professionals charge customers using an hourly rate, the more detailed knowledge a customer can provide may potentially have an impact on lowering the total cost of service.
The first action 4FastPlumber advises customers to take is to locate the water shut-off. The company notes that the main water shut-off to a home is in the vicinity of the water meter—where a home connects to the water supply. Though this location is usually similar in each home, it may vary, according to 4FastPlumber. Thus, knowledge of its location will save the expense of the potential time it takes for a plumber to locate an unusually-located water shut-off.
Since turning off the electricity is often necessary for a plumber to do the plumbing work, knowing the location of your home’s breaker box is also listed in the article as useful knowledge. Being able to direct the plumber to the breaker box, and providing a clear path to it in case the plumber needs to get back and forth, can save valuable time.
The article on 4FastPlumber’s website concludes with a recommendation to keep the area the plumber needs to work in clear. Plumbing work environments, often under sinks and inside of closets, often accumulate clutter. The article notes that waiting for the customer to clear this clutter can be a drain on a plumber’s time and thus raise the amount the customer will pay for the service.
