Hello, this is PlumberX. People always ask me what gave you the idea and what made you create these how-to plumbing videos? Coming up with the idea was easy. After many years as a plumber and servicing customers at their home, I've seen a lot of people in tuff situations, people that could not afford a plumber, people that didn't have time to wait for a plumber to come to their home and make repairs, hearing horror stories of Plumbers that have ripped off costumers and gave bad service, to me this was a loud cry for help. One story comes to mind; A friend of mine calls me and ask, PlumberX could you do me a favor and help this older lady that I know, and go by and look at her Plumbing, she needs plumbing work really bad but she's too scared to call a plumber because of the cost, and she knows that if I send you over there to check out the plumbing she can trust me as a friend recommending you, sure I said I could do that. The next day came and I went to the old lady's home, she came to the door with a pleasant smile very humbly. I could see it in her eye's she didn't have to say a word (What is this going to cost) she was very polite and courteous. Sir would you like something to drink and I do appreciate you coming to check out my plumbing on such short notice. No problem mam let's see what's going on here with your plumbing. This way Sir in the kitchen. As I walk through the home I saw in the corner of my eye younger children around 3, 5, and 6 years of age running around the house I'm sure they were her Grandkids; right away I knew they also stayed there and grandmother seem to have her hands full. I would say it's safe to say that grandmother was helping raise them or she was doing it all alone. Yeah, I'm a softy, seeing all this going on before I even saw the plumbing problem, just made me thankful for my situation and hoping that I could help her out, and maybe just for that day I could give her a chance to catch her breath and take away some of the worries she had going on. I finely made it to the kitchen sink. Here you go Sir, I'll leave you alone and let you work again thank you so much in a humble voice, she says. I look under the kitchen sink. WOW! That's it, I said to myself. It was a chrome P-Trap that had just corroded from the bottom leaking into a large cooking pot, a five-minute job to replace it. I was curious. Mam How long has this been like this. Two years Sir. I ask really? Yes. Mam where have you been washing your dishes I ask. In the tube. OH! I said. Can you fix it, Sir? She asks. Yes, mam not a problem. For a minute I saw a little sigh of relief on her face, but she caught herself. Sir, do you have any idea what this is going to cost? Yes Mam, in a low voice I said nothing mam. I didn't have to say it too loud because I didn't want it to seem as if I was doing her a big favor because I was feeling just as humble as she was; the smile and the relief on her face were more than enough for me she was really doing me a big favor, I was enjoying the idea that I was helping someone God had sent me to. Yes, I know this is a small job, but there are many people out there that don't realize this and they are really scared to call a plumber.
