So friday I got a call from my inlaws neighbor. elderly lady who lives alone when she called she said she had a leak under the house, so when i was asking my usual questions she wasnt coming forward with to much info. she finally told me she had another plumbing company out doing there "anual water heater inspection" and when he came out from under the house he was soaking wet. I asked why he was under the house she still really wouldnt tell me anything. so when i got there i was expecting to get all wet and still wasnt sure what i was looking for? so i climb under the house it was bone dry from one side to the other, meter not moving, dust on the plastic and no visible signs of dried up puddles on the plastic. when i crawled out the owners son was there and i told him i could not find anything. turns out the other company on there water heater inspection told her he needed to go under the house and when he came he was soaking wet and told her all her pipes were shot and she needed a complete $8000 repipe. she was going to sign the contract with them but luckily my mother in law was outside and told her to atleast call me. Now I dont care how much somebody charges but that is way steep for 2 bath repipes in our area, secondly he must have brought a water bottle down with him because there was no places to get water from in the crawl. Ive seen some pretty low things but this is probaly one of the worst.
No announcement yet.
