Sometimes no matter how well you plan or how careful you are, things can go south quickly. Again, a little thoughtful preparation can save you a headache later. Have the phone number handy for a good plumber you trust. You don’t want to be standing in your bathroom in an expanding puddle of water searching through a list of plumbers and making desperate phone calls.
If you do need a plumber, it’s best to get on their schedule as soon as possible. I recommend starting your project early in the day. That way if you do need a plumber, the earlier you can get on their work schedule, the earlier you can get your issue resolved. Otherwise you may find yourself waiting until the next day—or even longer—before professional help becomes available.
Lastly, I’d recommend avoiding weekend work when possible. Plumbers often charge more for weekend, night, or holiday hours. A little planning on your part can save you money if you end up needing a plumber.
