|In response to Re: Washer drain|
: I have a REALLY old house. My washer was working fine until recently. My sink started filling up when the washer drained. So, I called a drain man and he cleaned out the drain and this stoped. Well, there was duct tape around the drain for the washer since I bought the house (Washer and drier came with the house). Well, drain fiixed I guess I can remove the duct tape right? ... No! I removed it, ran the washer and water overflows out the drain pipe when the washer drains. I did some research and I guess my pipes are too small. the diameter of the pipe is 1 1/2 in. What do I do now? Do I just tape it back up or call a plumber? How much is this going to cost?
Shane, How much is this going to cost? Ah yes the most asked question a plumber gets over the phone. Well not to get smart...But when a customer asks me that question I come back with ..Do you know what color my socks are that i am wearing? and of course the answer is No... Well why don't you know what color socks i am wearing? I ask. and the customer says well i can't see them. Well, I can't see your plumbing over the phone either yet most consumers insist that we tell them over the phone what something will cost..O just a ball park price..I won't hold you to it. Yea right.... So who ever reads this i ask or beg you on behalf of most plumbers in business DON'T ASK FOR A PRICE OVER THE PHONE OR OVER THE INTERNET. We can't be accurate, It isn't fair to you , to your plumber or to us. Dale's Plumbing Service Inc LMP
