9 Reasons to Love a Plumber’s Crack

Contacting Pell Plumbing the second your plumbing issue got out of hand was the right idea, but now you’re in the middle of your repair and, well, we’ve all been there, staring at the wrong side of a sweaty, tiny-pantsed man working tirelessly to fix the leak under the sink. The next time you find yourself in this predicament look at the bright side…

9. Positive Body Image: Feel good about your physique again when you at least confirm your pants aren’t working that hard.

8. Underwear…Model?: Preview different undergarments on a real live model. Are you sure you want to go with those plaid boxers after seeing them in action? Straining, pasty action?

7. Storage Facility: If you get in a bind feel free to store any manner of things in there…credit cards and even a pen to sign the check later are both fair game. Many plumbers like to be tipped this way so keep cash on hand! (Disclaimer: We do not endorse this tactic.)

6. Tan Line Inspection: The less defined your plumber’s butt-tan is the harder he’s working, right? If he’s got a swimsuit line all the way across he’s spending too much time at the beach and not enough time getting experience that will help him fix your sink.

5. Conversation Skill Builder: In a desperate attempt to think about anything other than his crack you’ll gain valuable experience making idle conversation with a stranger. Conversation that doesn’t involve anyone’s posterior.

4. Total Focus: At least you can rest in the fact that if your plumber’s working SOHARD they neglect to feel a cool breeze on their you-know-where they’re at least paying attention to your pipes.

3. Lax Dress Code: Seriously though, if your plumber shows his crack you don’t have to worry about changing out of your pajamas while he’s there.

2. Good Stories: Really, who doesn’t love a good “My plumber’s crack was so big…” story? You’ll have comedic gold to spin for at least three weeks.

1. You Hired a Plumber: The best part of being eye-to-eye with a plumber’s crack? Knowing he’s the one on his hands and knees pulling who knows what out of your drain.  Calling in Pell Plumbing to fix your plumbing issues gets you one step ahead of the game, even if it means a little more crack than you’re comfortable with.

Plumbing Horror Stories: Holiday Edition

Ever hear the one about the time Santa got stuck in the toilet? What about the one about the guy with the garbage disposal that ate the engagement ring he was about to give his girlfriend for Christmas? The holidays are a busy but stressful time for everyone – including your pipes and drains. This year’s festivities may be over but the professionals at Pell Plumbing want to remind you that plumbing emergencies can happen anytime – keep their number on speed dial in case you find yourself in one of these unfortunate predicaments…

Toilet Turkey: A few years ago a plumber in Florida received a call from an elderly woman with a clogged toilet. The culprit? An entire turkey carcass shoved down the bowl on Thanksgiving evening. Her reasoning? She didn’t have a garbage disposal. Go figure.

Secret Sink: A Tampa man sweetly decides to change out the bathroom hardware as a gift on Christmas Eve while his wife was sleeping. It would have worked, too, if he hadn’t severed an in-wall line in the process – nothing like a little 4am visit from a local plumber to bring on the holiday cheer.

Best Impressions: An Iowa girl meeting her boyfriend’s family for the first time disappears to an upstairs bathroom after a particularly rich Thanksgiving meal. You can guess the rest (or maybe not) – the toilet clogs, she panics and quietly slips back downstairs only to have the overflow, water and all, drip through the ceiling onto everyone’s heads only a few minutes later.

Bird’s the Word: Why not install a new faucet on Thanksgiving morning? This is why. A father and son plumbing team were called out to fix what the husband couldn’t and in the process get roped into the Thanksgiving meal preparations. While the son is removing the turkey from the oven he drops the pan – the hot, greasy bird bounces off his father’s belly who’s laying on his back under the sink. The meal was ruined but the sink did get fixed.

If you think your holiday season was rough just be thankful you weren’t one of these unlucky homeowners. With Easter and spring break just around the corner now’s the time to get started on those lingering renovations – not the day of. Call Pell Plumbing for a professional job done right the first time…no one wants to pay a plumber his holiday overtime rates.
