Handyman plumbing services we provide are fixture related. If you need a faucet, toilet, vanity or garbage disposal replaced then we are the Handyman Plumbing in Memphis, TN for you.
When it comes to plumbing issues the one thing we never do is put a bandage over a problem. We look at what is the most cost effective way to help our customers.
With our experience, plumbing fixtures that are older and warn out it is more cost effective to replace the whole unit than to try and repair it by installing new seals, o-rings or springs. The reason for this is there is no guarantee that the fixture won’t leak again.
We like our customers to be happy with our service and a leaking faucet after installing a bandage don’t help keep our customers happy.
History about Handyman Plumbing
Plumbing has changed from what it was 2700 to 3000 years ago when the Greek, Roman, Persian, Indian, and Chinese cities had a desperate need to supply potable water. Not to mention wastewater removal was must for tight quarters living.
After the fall of Rome plumbing for water and sanitation would regress for over a 1,000 years until it picked up again in the 1800’s. When public health authorities were racing to solve potable water problems and wastewater dilemmas.
Plumbing comes in various material types and is used based on local code requirements. Materials such as steel, copper and PVC/CPVC are most common used in plumbing today.
Today people take their plumbing for granted. Most don’t even give it a second thought where it all began and how it became a staple to everyday living. If you like to understand the history behind our modern day conveniences then start with the plumbing.
