Reputable Plumber: 7 Tips to Help Find a Reputable Plumber

It is my view that plumbers have gained an unfair reputation over the past few decades. Not many people like calling in a plumber. The work they do is expensive, and it always seems to cost more than quoted and take a longer time than promised. Plus, much like car repair shops, most people do not understand the work actual work that a plumber is doing.

A power flush is also referred to as a jet flush or a hard flush. It is basically cleaning out your central heating pipes using high velocity, low pressure water mixed with chemicals. This means that the process if relatively low risk in that it will not force open any loose joints (if you hired a qualified plumber then this shouldn’t be an issue!).
