The sore days of a Dublin plumber

Ever since the existence of plumbing the plumbers have become the middle class men. They are not very successful, but they are not really failures since they have work to do.

Before the international financial crisis in 2008 many plumbers were contracted by large building companies, on building sites in order to put in place all the plumbing and draining systems.

Something dreadful happened when along came the financial crisis that blocked all the investments and left many people jobless. Even the Dublin plumber would have to face this, and nobody was happy about it. Many plumbers had to let go some of their own team, in order to survive the two year nightmare, while others continued working with the hope of future payment.

Contractors were obviously incapable of paying since they were not getting any money either, so they become indebted to all the people on the construction site. Reportedly, a plumber was expecting a lot of money from a contractor, and when he realized he was not going to get them any time soon he had a heart attack and almost died.

The sore days of a Dublin plumber don’t stop here. Soon, the little hope he had left he put it in the householders. They were the ones they didn’t afford to buy new anything, so they just repaired anything, giving plumbers a little hope, since they were called in to fix certain things around the house.

After the two years it took a little to get back on their feet, but many of the teams are now more careful. They don’t sing in just for any job that may cause them loss, and I believe they have actually learnt to be prepared for anything. It seems as this major crisis has been useful, looking at a larger scale.

Get your own Dublin plumbers

In the digital era of the present times, everyone has their own personalized everything. From their own trainer to their own chef or their own restaurant, everybody wants to have something more, just for themselves, or that goes specifically as they desire. Plumbers could definitely not fall behind, especially since they wanted to stay in the business. So what do you think they thought of? Personalized Dublin plumbers that was what they thought of! How does that work?

Pretty simple actually. All you need to do is to call them in once, to check up every piece of plumbing in order to assure their safety. They will put all your data into a database and the next time you need something, they will know immediately who you are, what kind of problems did you have before and where could the problem be this time.

As you can tell the digital era has not over seen the plumbers, since they can now use all sorts of digital tools to fix your problems. Moreover, they presently use PDAs and tablets to register all their clients, in order to generate special offers for them, as well as to help them do their own job better. A simple program contains all information about your plumbing, piping and draining system and then another, more advanced program processes the information and detects eventual problems.

This way they can even call you every other month to ask you how is everything going, making sure everything is fine.

Dublin plumbers are definitely ahead of times, in plumbing, and I happen to think it is quite a fantastic thing for them to adapt so quickly to changing times. In this situation I am inclined to say keep your friends close and your plumber closer. I mean keep his number on the fridge, next to important birthdays and phone numbers.

Being an emergency plumber in Dublin

I have been a plumber for almost ten years now and I must say, there isn’t one dull day in Dublin. This city outranks, if you ask me any other large city in the world. It is so vivid at times, especially now, with St. Patrick’s Day all over the streets, that you may think you’re some place else entirely.

Being a plumber is usually dull, all you have to do is check pipes and repair them when it is the case. However, Dublin, has another dynamic, totally different. Being an emergency plumber in Dublin means being called in the middle of the night to solve people’s problems. It usually takes a few minutes to get there, but sometimes, if I am caught up in some other job, my colleagues have to go. I must say, having your own business, is the best thing that happened to me, although it is quite hard to keep a business floating.

Going back to the topic, being an emergency plumber in Dublin is harder than you may think. We do not have working hours and leisure hours. We only have working hours, which can be very tiring. I remember one night a woman woke me up, she sounded desperate. Her plumbing in the bathroom have broken, so she needed me to come right away. When I got there, the water was already pouring down the stairs, outside her house. It took us more than 2 hours to solve the problem, but, it was worth it.

Needless to say she was thankful we were able to save her house. She even asked me if I had any recording device on me so that I could record her testimonial. She wanted to give a recommendation for us, in order for anybody to hear it.

Ever since then, I have asked my clients to put down their opinions on my site, so that others can see them. You can find them here if you’re interested.

It’s good to be a plumber in Dublin

A few years ago I moved to Ireland, in search of a better life. I didn’t have any plans, I just needed to go away from my home town. Having a passion for everything Irish, I the happiest person when I finally decided to move to Dublin.

plumbing1For starters, I have to say, I wasn’t much of a good pupil, while in school, so I have not graduated any college, just the high school. However, I always knew I would like to have my own business, I just didn’t know what it would be. Another thing you must know about me is that I also have a brother that chose to come with me. So there we were, two young men looking for a job, in Dublin.

Not much longer after we arrived, we got the same job, and I just saw myself being a plumber in Dublin. After I worked as a plumber for almost two years, I learned everything there is to be about plumbing. Therefore, my brother and I decided to build our own plumbing business here.

Of course, my old bosses weren’t very happy, but capitalism takes its toll.

So, here I am, five years later, having my own plumbing business in Dublin. To tell you’re the truth, I think it was the wisest decision I have ever made. Dublin is quite an old city that is constantly developing, so plumbers always have a place here, either with the old plumbing (fixing it) or assembling new one in construction sites.

My team has enlarged five times, since we opened the business, and we now count more than 20 plumbers. I must say I am more than pleased to have the opportunity to hire people, and give them jobs, especially after the horrific 2008 crisis, that we are still trying to get over with.  I think I am doing a good job, because I am trying to get even the most unfortunate ones, at least a job as a plumber in Dublin.

Leak detection can save your home

A few months ago, just as winter was setting in I had the worst experience of my life. All of a sudden, I was sitting at my kitchen table, when a drop of water just leaked out of the wall in front of me.

At first, I thought I wasn’t seeing right, but then another drop followed. I was panicked because I didn’t know what to do, I was quite new in Dublin and I didn’t have many friends over there. To be honest, that was the only time I regretted deeply that I didn’t have the Yellow Pages to quickly search for some emergency plumbers in Dublin. I turned on my laptop and after a few minutes I was already calling the first team of plumbers I could find.

During my neurotic search the leak was getting bolder and bolder spilling all over my freshly painted walls, making me even more nervous than before. After a little while (during which I was trying to stop de leaking myself), the leak detection professionals came in. obviously, there wasn’t necessary to check where the leak was coming from, because it was already visible.

Anyway, needless to say, I am more than grateful they exist because if they wouldn’t have come, my house would be a total mess.  I would have had to move out and look for another flat that would have probably cost me another fortune.

Because I live in an old apartment building I now have the leak detection guys on speed dial, just in case I spot a moist dot on my walls.

Judging my experience, I believe you should do that too.

Curious facts about the plumbing in Dublin

Plumbing in Dublin is pretty much the same as everywhere else in this world.  We have been using pluming since a few thousands years ago, however none of us really stop and pay a little more attention the plumbing. You would be amazed to see what interesting facts I have found about plumbing in Dublin, and all the other major cities in the world.

emergency plumbersFor example, I bet you have heard about the urban legend of crocodiles in the sewer, am I right? Well, they are not exactly crocodiles, but there are, however millions of fish, frogs and other water animals that live in the dirty water that we waste. A recent research has found a connection between us and them (I mean other than the fact they live in the waters we consider dirty). Turns out that all the medicine, drugs and outer substances we ingest, we excrete through urine that goes in the sewer and gets ingested by all the organisms that live in the sewer. I guess the sewer is full of drugged and medicated fish and frogs.

Another interesting fact about the plumbing in Dublin, is that a leak as small as a pin head is enough to fill no less than 12.000 baths in a year. Can you imagine just how much water we are wasting, while there are people in Africa that suffer from drought?  Also, can you imagine your water supplier’s bill? Better get those pipes checked for leaking, right?

And for the finale let me tell you a funny fact about American toilets, not the plumbing in Dublin, but only to make us feel better about ourselves. During the half time of the super bowl finals, there is proved to be more flushed toilets than any other time of the year. Those 15 minutes of American toilets’ glory must be hilarious. There isn’t a super bowl in Ireland, but I bet our toilets feel just as over used during half time of our favorite games.

Thank god for emergency plumbers

Sometimes, your house is not your friend, especially if you find yourself living in an old house. The plumbing has different plans for you, and is not the good kind. Just in case something happens, is advisable to keep the number of the emergency plumbers in sight so you can call them immediately.

There are so many things that can go wrong in a house; I believe it is necessary to keep an entire notebook filled with emergency services of al kinds.  If you live in an old house, it is recommended that every once in a while you have it checked. Everything form your roof to your pipes have to be checked, in order to prevent a real life disaster. For example, a single leak in one of the pipes can ruin walls entirely, and depending of the position of the leak it can ruin an entire floor, or walls from up till down.

Don’t risk your home! Call emergency plumbers to have your house checked and you can go to sleep peacefully.  Don’t wait till the last minute, when there is nothing more you can do, act preventively and everything can end up really smooth. Sometimes all that emergency plumbers can do is help you stop the water running, but they can not help you build your wall back on, or restore your kitchen to the way it was before the leak.

Plumbers can also detect any leaks in your walls, before you can see actual signs of leaking. With technological equipment, they can detect any change in the moisture of the wall and can detect the exact spot where the pipe leaks. Today’s life does not allow you to make mistakes like these.  Better be safe than sorry, call the plumbers, and the guys that check your electric system and the fire place(if you are the happy owner of one) and start sleeping well in your own house.

I need some Dublin plumbers

I have just moved in a flat in Dublin, after living my entire life in a house, in a small town. As you can imagine it is quite a change, and to be true I didn’t have the welcoming I have expected.

plumbing1But let me start from the beginning.  I have moved into a block of flats a few weeks ago, without knowing the flat had plumbing problems.  I mean real plumbing problems because all the pipes were as old the Second World War, and they were leaking inside the walls without anybody knowing it.

One morning I woke up and while I was making my coffee I noticed there was water on the floor. At first I thought I left the tap open and checked it twice, but everything appeared to be in order. I left that as it was, and I went to work. The nightmare burst in when I came back, the following evening and there was water in the lobby of the building, not just my flat.

Some neighbors started shouting “call some Dublin plumbers”, and to be honest I was shocked I didn’t think of that. Needless to say, I called all the Dublin plumbers I could find in the yellow pages and in the end a small team of two came in.

I thought it was going to be over soon, I really didn’t want to pay for any extra damages, but it turns out fate has different plans. After the first team of plumbers has left, I went to sleep, only to wake up in the middle of the night when a weird sound kept on going. The pipes were leaking again! This time my kitchen was flooded because of another leak, a bit higher to the ground, you see, the sound I kept hearing was the water dripping on the floor.

Still, after a sleepless night that I spent in search of some serious Dublin plumbers I have finally solved the problem. I called in the only team of plumbers that work the nights as well.  They told me, I’m going to need them in the future as well, so I’m keeping their phone number in plain sight.
