Not Feeling Confident With Plumber
My daughter's house and my house have plumbing issues we are starting to address.
First my house has three bathrooms, one that had a shower drain leak, and one that I will probaly need to gut. My plumber has excellent reviews and referred the major work to another plumber who will give me an estimate later today for the bathroom that needs gutted and my daughter's cracked shower.
But in the meantime he is fixing one shower leak and capping a gas line in the basement that went to an old gas space heater that I don't need. After replacing the shower strainer he also needed to untangle the the weird installation of the lines which is all in the basement.
My issue- He needs to reconnect the lines also to the basement shower. When I checked on the progress I told him that I am sure he knew this but could he make sure there were shut off valves to the basement shower. He acted surprised and told me they did not originally have shut off valves but he would put them in. He also said it would have been nice if I had told him that before he went to the store for supplies.
Huh? I don't understand this. Wouldn't a plumber who is fixing your plumbing know this? And there were shut off valves which I pointed out to him as the pipes he cut out were still on the floor. I may be blonde and female but seriously I know what a shut off valve is and have done minor plumbing repairs before.
Super ticked off right now. Angie's list gives him an "A" rating.
