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.
But 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.
