Is there any problem more frustrating than one that involves plumbing? Whether you’re stuck showering in water that won’t drain quickly enough, leaving you standing in a pool of water up to your knees every time you want to bathe, or a toilet that just won’t flush, dealing with plumbing problems is not fun for most people. While some problems can be solved with basic tools and a little bit of a can-do attitude, sometimes you need more than just a bottle of Draino or a plunger.
