Plumbing Bloggers

Filed under: Uncategorized — Tags: , — admin @ 3:36 pm

Howdy readers! As many of you know I have now become a semi-full time plumbing blogger and I am really enjoying it thus far. Now before you ask what the heck semi-full time means(I don’t even know) I will just say that I blog a few times a week and then try to post lots of useful information on my sites that will help people who are either looking for a plumber or looking to learn how to solve basic home plumbing problems. I’ve been happy to find quite a few other bloggers who are also out there sharing information to the masses on plumbing. Many of these people are like me, either former or current full-time plumbers. One of the best things that I have seen is that lots of local companies have started blogs alongside their main company websites. On these blogs they are helping people by giving basic tips and then giving honest recommendations on when they should call a professional for help. This type of honesty is important for a couple of reasons. One, lots of companies try to take advantage of really simple repairs as opportunities to send apprentice plumbers out without the mandated supervisory licensed plumber. Now honestly, for basic jobs this makes a lot of sense. You don’t need a licensed plumber to clean a u-trap in a bathroom and you certainly don’t need two professional plumbers(1 licensed and 1 unlicensed). The problem is that these jobs are so simple that they really should just be done by the home-owner. When companies equip their potential customers with this type of information it really sends a signal that they are not just out to make a quick buck. This type of honesty is usually rewarded with trust built up with the potential customers in that area which translates into a better company reputation. So I wanted to take a moment and give these folks some kudos for operating honestly and openly.
