I did not expect to be writing this post. But I am. Few people in my position think they will ever need a 24 hr emergency plumber in NJ. But I did. I thought I knew what I should do. I didn’t. “What happened?” you ask, well, I will tell you in two words: “frozen pipes.” In brief, I got a call from one of my tenets who neglected to keep the temperature high enough in his unit. The temperature that night got well below freezing and several of the pipes froze and burst. If it wasn’t for my 24-hour emergency plumber in NJ, I don’t know what I would have done.
I knew that frozen pipes could be a major problem, so I always tell my tenets to keep their temperature in the 70s when a cold front is coming through. Not all of my tenets listen. In the case of this tenet, he was hoping to save a little on his heating bill so he turned off his heat on one of the coldest nights of the year. Not surprisingly, the pipes froze and burst. Hence, me being the landlord, I get a call. I went to the unit but quickly learned that I was in above my pay grade. The pipes were like a maze and I didn’t know where one began and another ended. I begrudgingly called my 24-hour plumber and he was there within the hour! In addition to repairing the burst pipes, he also did a full inspection and found some further issues that needed to be addressed. I had some pipes that were on the verge of a severe blockage and another portion where some significant root removal was needed. While the price for his services was not cheap, I would be paying much more now if I had not made the call. Thank you for the wonderful service!
