I was pretty pleased that my husband and I got through the pandemic without any major issues occurring in our home. However, as soon as our city began opening up again, we suddenly found ourselves needing an emergency plumber in Essex County NJ late one night. I was incredibly concerned that I wouldn’t be able to find anyone who could show up to because so many businesses had just opened up again and were short-staffed. However, on the night that I called for help, a kind man answered the phone at the very first plumbing business that I called. I felt an instant sigh of relief when he said the name of the business and asked me how he could be of service to me.
I’ve never had any plumbing issues before. However, I am a new stepmother with a three year old toddler who loves to keep busy by destroying things. He is the sweetest little boy, but he loves to draw on walls, break things and put things where they don’t belong in ways that cause accidents and other major issues. I learned that he loves to put things into the toilet and then flush to see what would happen to everything he places in the toilet. My husband and I had been very lucky to catch things quickly when my stepson had done it multiple times previously, but our luck ran out when we didn’t find out that he did it until right before we were settling in for bed one evening.
The man who answered the phone that night was the owner of the business. After explaining that our toilet was overflowing and filled with small children’s toys, he said he would be happy to help and said he would show up within an hour. After he arrived, it only took him a short time to remedy the issue and he even gave us a discount on the service he provided, too.
