Locate Main Shut Off Valve
A professional plumber starts a conversation with you by asking where the main shutoff valve is. This critical element of your home’s plumbing system SHOULD be identified.
The mainline valve keeps the full pressure of the city main from bursting into your home. If you have a plumbing leak and the valve on the main is NOT WORKING, you will have a big mess.
When you have a scheduled plumbing visit, the contractor should ask you to show him where the valve on your main is. If you don’t know where it is, they will help you find it.
The experienced plumber will also ask you to turn it on and off to make sure you can turn it around in an emergency. Many valves get stuck over time if they are not turned at least twice a year.
Clear the Area that Needs Work
A professional plumber will appreciate that the place where he or she will be working is as clean as possible, for example, under the kitchen sink or in the bathroom. It’s not easy to fix piping or find the location of a leak when chemical bottles and other supplies are in the way.
If you have a leak in your basement, the leak’s location should be cleaned to make it easier to access to fix the problem.
Put Pets in Another Room
We adore animals and are always happy to be greeted by a friendly cat or dog at the door. We know they’re often curious to know what the plumber in their home is doing, but it’s best to keep them away from the work area, so they don’t step on parts or tools and trip over a busy and focused technician.
It is best to put them in another room or outside so that they do not interfere with the work that needs to be done.
Clean Toilet Ahead Of Appointment
Plumbers go out on many toilet calls in a week, and, surprisingly, not many homeowners clean the toilet before the plumber arrives.
If the toilet is clogged and overflowing, it’s understandable that it’s not clean, but it’s important to have a clean toilet for the job with any other toilet work.
This will make it easier for the plumber to do their job and avoid any potential messes.
Clear Snow & Ice During Winter
In our climate in Canada, snow and ice are a huge part of our daily life in the winter. Plumbers (and any other service professionals) really appreciate a cleared and salt-sprinkled walkway to your house.
They usually carry a big bag of tools and equipment, which can be a disruption at the best of times. This will make it easier for the plumber to get into your home and reduce the risk of slip and fall accidents.
