What is something people THINK they know about your job?
Most clients think that you have to be a big, strong, man to be a plumber. Clearly this is not the case if you know me! Women should consider this career path if they enjoy working with their hands and interacting with clients. Any of the trades can be a great career path for men and women - I am just a little biased with my preference.

Name one thing you WISH people knew about your job?
People can save so much in unnecessary costs by being proactive instead of reactive with their home repairs. Please listen to what your plumber is recommending. If we tell you that your 15 year old water heater really should be replaced, it's because we are trying to help you avoid the nightmare of having the water heater leaking on a major holiday or weekend when you will end up with much higher labor costs to replace and likely be without hot water even longer.
Simply keeping an eye on little repairs that are necessary throughout your home and addressing before they become emergencies is financially beneficial when considering the alternative.

Tell us a secret about your job.
There are lots of little tricks that a simple phone call to our office can help a homeowner to fix an issue - often without us even coming out to their home! Many clients do not know that there is a little red button on the very bottom of the garbage disposal that can be reset - if the disposal stops working that might be what's needed for the fix. Or, if a homeowner has a higher than normal water bill they can put a little food coloring in the toilet tank to see if over time (15-30 minutes) it shows color in the toilet bowl which can determine if there is a very small leak that is causing the water bill to increase every quarter. (If you try this make sure to flush the toilet several times after testing to avoid the color sticking permanently to the bowl).

What is the ONE book that you think I should read RIGHT NOW?
Who Moved My Cheese by Spencer Johnson M.D.
