Your pipes will freeze.

This morning I woke up to find my hot water not working, my yard flooded and water shooting up out of the pipes outside of my house.  Ironically enough my husband left at 6 a.m. earlier this morning to catch a plane to Los Angeles, California.  Before he left, he wrote down the plumber’s name and number just in case I needed it.

Our water bill will suck this month.

This is the part of the pipe that the plumber fixed.

Avoid a not fun Saturday by letting your hot and cold water run from your faucets and showers at night when the temperatures drop below freezing.

Despite starting my morning cussing and freaking out, I can honestly say that the situation could have been worse and our plumber is a really nice guy.  I appreciate good customer service.  I know I can be a lot to deal with when I am upset but our plumber Randy Wofford diffused the situation like a professional.  He was really nice to me, came to my house within ten minutes and explained everything to me as he repaired the pipe without acting like I was bothering him.  I told him that we left the water running last night and he asked if we left both the hot and cold water running.  I told him I wasn’t sure.  He said that you have to leave both on and that the hot water will actually burst faster.

Good to know, lesson learned.

    Looking for Wofford Plumbing. Are they still in business? 662-323-8192 seems disconnected. Do you have a different number? Thanks

      I am not sure if they are still in business. It has been a while since we called him, but the number I have for him is 662-312-8284. I think that is Randy’s cell number.

Tell me what you're thinking...
