Pulling An All-Nighter By the Pool (It's Not as Glamorous As It Sounds)

We love our techs here at James Rowe Plumbing for many reasons. They

prove their love and dedication for their jobs everyday while out at our

customers' homes, and often go above and beyond the call of duty. That

includes getting a little more wet than usual sometimes.

Texas has seen a lot of rain these last few weeks, and Arlington was no

exception. We had some homeowners who had just moved into their new

home and called us with a pump station issue that they were having in

their backyard. This was out on their pool deck, and the pump wasn't

handling all of the water properly due to an improper design. The mass

overflow of water then pushed gravel from the yard into the station, which

didn't help the situation.

After receiving the call, James and one of our techs came out to help

repair the issue, which would have flooded the house if it had not been

taken care of immediately. They worked all throughout the night, in the rain

and all, but eventually completed the repair.

I tell you this not to toot our own horn, but to offer a lesson, particularly for

homebuyers. In addition to having a plumber inspect the plumber of your

new home INDOORS, make sure he takes a tour of the EXTERIOR as

well, especially if the home includes a pool or a water feature.
