Generally speaking, fifteen years in the plumbing industry, covering a wide network of industries, commercial enterprises and residential complexes in a large urban area is considered to be quite exceptional. It is exceptional in the sense that a plumber will have performed a variety of complex tasks this side of the twenty first century with every opportunity given. Usually, such opportunities come through thick and fast when the correct training and/or apprenticeship has been completed.
As well as the usual technical college training, the experienced plumber may have nostalgic recollections of his on the job training which he received under the custodianship of even more experienced journeymen who would have experienced talismanic repair, maintenance and installation work long before this century’s new technologies arrived. But he might also be blown away by some of the sustainable developments that have occurred since his retirement from the business.
For instance, he might be thinking to himself; now, why didn’t I think of that. This could be the case when he witnesses the work being carried out by your modern day seasoned professionals performing a no dig drain installation operation, using nothing more than an epoxy resin. All consumers are always fussing over the prices they have to pay. That’s okay, but you would think that quality work never comes cheap.
Well, at least with experience on the plumber’s side, he is well positioned to charge his needy clients with a fair price they can all afford. What should be of more concern to them is just how well he will be covering their back. Here we talk only of all those awkward and terrifyingly urgent emergencies at the most ungodly of hours. The experienced plumber works twenty four hours a day. That means that he will come calling if you need him at 3 am in the morning.
He charges no extra fees for his emergency rescue work. No extra fees are loaded on necessary work that can only be completed over a weekend. He does not charge by the hour. He does not need to drag his work hours out in any case, given his years of experience in the business. He charges customers a flat rate, fair and square.
